1. Rome, Italy Camp on the banks of Lake Bracciano, surrounded by twelve hills

Lastminute.com reviewer Sheila shares, "The weather was good. We visited loads of sites. Rome is easy to walk around if you are fit and well. Taxis food and accommodation are not cheap but Rome is amazing. There are amazing sightings of starlings at dusk each evening so watch the sky."

Lastminute.com reviewer Nicola shares, "The weather was very warm for the time of year with clear blue skies. Very beautiful. The food was excellent and of high quality. Everyone was very friendly and all the people speak English. There was so much to do and see and will be coming back to explore.  "

2. Paris, France Walk along the picturesque boulevards and admire the sunset

Lastminute.com reviewer Christodbbb says, "The Parisian weather was warm with clear blue sky, We visited the excellent sites of the Eiffel Tower, Arc the Triumph, The Louvre and spent a night at the Moulin Rouge all in two nights. I would highly recommend staying at the Hotel Francois. It was great value for money, including a wonderful breakfast, great service and about 50 yards from the Champ Elysees."

Lastminute.com reviewer Lauren adds, "Miraculously, despite going in February we had 2 days of clear blue skies and 18-degree weather. Glorious! Lots of eating and drinking wine, especially in the Monmarte area, it’s really very lovely."

Lastminute.com reviewer Gaia adds, "Paris welcomed us with a bit of undertone weather but it picked up and was stunning anyway. It then opened up with blue skies and a warm sun that accompanied our walks along its boulevards, magnificent squares and romantic river banks. Make the best of Notre Dame and Sainte Chapelle magic going in the afternoon, when the sun shines behind the stained glasses. Time saver tip: pick up a mouthwatering baguette to have lunch on the go while queuing for museums!"

3. Reykjavik, Iceland Northern lights! Need we say more?

Lastminute.com reviewer Carolyn adds, "The weather was funny-one-minute snow, then blue skies and sun and then heavy snow again. We loved this game of hide and seek Did the Golden Circle tour and watched the magical northern lights. Highlights had to be the Blue Lagoon and the Reykjavík food tour. Food was amazing and our tour guide was wonderful.   "

Lastminute.com reviewer Scott shares, "We were lucky enough to see both the blustery and snowy season, as well as experiencing a few days with a bit of sun and greenery. Our whole experience was breathtaking. Every landmark we saw, and the long drives in between each one, were completely inspiring and it made for consistent beautiful sightseeing. I would recommend Iceland to everybody!  "

5. Barcelona, Spain Watch the local culture come alive when you camp along the Mediterranean coastline

Lastminute.com reviewer William shares, "Clear blue sky while we were in Barcelona. Cathedral and churches in the Gothic Quarter were well worth a visit. Sagrada Familia is a must. Marina area was too good. Plenty of inexpensive places to eat in Gothic Quarter."

Lastminute.com reviewer Ummu Sarah adds, "Sightseeing in Barcelona was excellent. There was loads of sunshine, blue skies, blue sea, and delightful palm trees everywhere. Platja the la Barceloneta was a dream! The food was delicious - we thoroughly enjoyed the locally made Tortilla the patatas, deep fried calamari, Spanish artisan bread, and fresh salads."

6. Prague, Czech Republic Become one with the magical beauty of Czechia

Lastminute.com reviewer Claire says, "Weather was cold but blue sky and sunny. Food was wonderful, highly recommend La Republica restaurant with live music. Very reasonable prices. You must try the Goulash! Recommend a horse and carriage ride in the main square. Plenty to see lots of beautiful buildings and scenery. Would definitely recommend a visit."

Lastminute.com reviewer Graham shares, "Perfect winter weather, bright blue skies but crisp and cold. We enjoyed endless miles of walking around the city and along the river, so much to take in, very picturesque. Gastronomy was delightful but a little pricey on the wallet. Recommend trying the chimney rolls filled with apple sauce and whipped cream and the patisseries. Lastminute.com reviewer adds, Prague was wonderful. We were treated to warm sunshine and blue skies so the beautiful buildings, churches and bridges looked at their best. Everywhere was clean, people were friendly and the beer was great."
