1. Paris, France Luxembourg Gardens to Buttes-Chaumont has everything you need!

Lastminute.com reviewer shares, "We have no control over the weather, but it was perfect! spring-like days in mid-February!. We were able to walk from the hotel to numerous visitor attractions, but if the weather had not been so good, the metro stations were within a couple of hundred yards from our hotel, and I'm sure the same would apply to many other hotels. Eurostar was very easy, quick and efficient, although they had cancelled a few other departures!"

Lastminute.com reviewer shares, "Paris in the spring was beautiful; the temperature was warm enough to walk around in a skirt and short sleeved shirt. We were lucky to have great weather, with little to no clouds There are loads of activities and places to go see, so do some research and narrow down your top list of things to do if you’re short on time. It was fairly crowded, but it was not peak season where it could be uncomfortable to make your way around the city."

2. London, United Kingdom With daffodils, bluebells, and cherry blossoms, this is the time to checkout the flowers

Lastminute.com reviewer shares, "The weather was a pleasant spring day full of clear skies. I went into Soho on Saturday evening, Sunday morning I visited Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament, London Eye, Downing Street and Trafalgar Square."

Lastminute.com reviewer shares, "I had great spring weather - there was lots of blossom on the trees, so it was ideal for walking around & I covered about 50k in 3 days! Walking from Victoria to Oxford Street via Green Park I stumbled unexpectedly upon the Changing of the Guard - I’m a Brit & never seen it before, then twice in two days. Fab dinner at Ottolenghi’s Rovi on Saturday night!"

3. Amsterdam, Netherlands Head to Keukenhof and witness an endless array of tulips

Lastminute.com reviewer shares, "The weather was terrible extremely windy and cold but that didn’t distract from the beauty of Amsterdam! There was so much to do my personal favourite was a private tour of the Red Light District where I learned so much about not only the Red Light District but Amsterdam too! The Red Light District secrets museum was amazing and the coffee shops were a completely unique experience, the lounge & Greenhouse effect were my faves! The Amsterdam lookout was an amazing lunch spot to view the whole of Amsterdam with a drink in hand! I also loved the Artis zoo is huge and has a lot of different animals, cafes and walk-in exhibits! 100% would go back in the springtime to do all the things I couldn’t squeeze into the weekend."

4. Bath-GB, United Kingdom Cycling around Bath in spring is a popular activity to see the city come alive

Lastminute.com reviewer says, "Weather was typical UK early spring. Bath Abbey was impressive, Roman baths interactive walking tour very clever and informative. Best book tables for restaurants ahead of visit as not easy to get walk-in tables in many."

Lastminute.com reviewer adds, "Bath's great. I was a returning visitor having lived there a while ago. Great, funky shops. Bustling atmosphere. Everywhere is beautiful - particularly delightful in spring when the sun's out."

5. Budapest, Hungary Visit the outdoor spring markets, like WAMP, Budapest’s design fair and GOUBA

Lastminute.com reviewer shares, "Budapest is a beautiful city. It is a good idea to buy a bus pass for the day and just travel around in the bus. Food is amazing and the cakes. The Hungarian kitchen is very diverse. Though a bit fattening. There are also a lot of baths with spring water. The best time to go to Budapest is from spring to autumn because winter can be cold."
