We especially enjoyed visiting the sky garden at the top of Fenchurch Tower, with its beautiful views of London" Lastminute.com reviewer says, "Weather was fine, mild. We ate at a local Indian restaurant, recommended by the hotel staff, which was wonderful. We visited Covent garden and surrounding area including Trafalgar Square and China Town, great street performance and artwork around. So lots to see."

2. Amsterdam, Netherlands A visit to Amsterdam would be incomplete without a visit to Keukenhof

Lastminute.com reviewer says, "The weather was so good for the first day. I went to the Keukenhof garden and the tulips are so beautiful. The flower auction is interesting." Lastminute.com reviewer says, "The Amsterdam old town centre is absolutely beautiful with the significant terraced houses along the inner water canals. The town has a comprehensive transport system (including the bus, train, tram, etc) which helps to access different places conveniently. There are lots of museums to visit, which relate to art, history, and culture. North Holland has the windmill villages showing the traditional culture of the Netherlands, while the tulips in the Keukenhof was blooming all around the garden." Lastminute.com reviewer says, "The tulip garden in Holland is a must-see attraction. The cheese tasting was fun and as well as the shoe making the process. Chinatown in central is good too. Had some nice Chinese food and milk tea! The city was so lovely had a cruise which was so good and very informative."

3. Edinburgh, United Kingdom Rooted in history and dressed to perfection is the Dunbar's Close

Lastminute.com reviewer says, "Edinburgh is, of course, a nice city, worth seeing the city. Not only the city itself but also its outskirts are lovely, full of natural beauty. Princess street, princess street garden, Edinburgh zoo are worth seeing, don't forget to take the ghost tour if you intend to visit Edinburgh. The bus service in Edinburgh is one of the best services in the whole of Europe."

Lastminute.com reviewer adds, "Great city, lots of culture and things to see. Princes street garden is great, the castle is beautiful and Arthur’s seat hike is definitely worth it. Uber is cheap and it is better to take cabs to most places. Was a bit cold and rainy but still a good vibe."

4. Geneva, Switzerland Jardin Botanique is home to 16,000 different species of exotic flowers, plants

Lastminute.com reviewer shares, "UN Geneva visit was very educational to my kids who wish to work as UN ambassador in future. Jardin Botanique was very easy to access from any place and another breathtaking place to sit and enjoy lunch. Then went to Einstegenalps for a day and didn't want to leave. It's natural, fabulous and a place where you want to de-stress. Love it so much. Next time I will definitely stay longer as a hotel in the mountain is available."
