1. Dubrovnik, Croatia "De-stressing tips: 3 islands boat cruise, Mt Srd- cable cars at sunset."

Lastminute.com reviewer Laura adds, "Weather was glorious and did not dip below 28°c in the day. Food was great from Croatian to Italian food, although the price in the old town was rather expensive and would compare to London prices, which I was not expecting in Croatia. We saw the city walls and went up in the cable car over the old town which was well worth it. Would recommend the cable car at sunset, it was BEAUTIFUL! De-stressing tips: 3 islands boat cruise, Mt Srd- cable cars at sunset. Sightseeing places: Favourite: Mt Srd -cable cars, Dubrovnik city walls, Fort Lawrence, Also did a trip to Mostar and the 3 islands. Romantic experience: Mt Srd at sunset looking over the old town of Dubrovnik and the islands. I liked: The location, old town Dubrovnik. There was so much to see and it was simply beautiful."

2. Budapest, Hungary "It was romantic to see the view during the Danube dinner cruise."

Lastminute.com reviewer Motoki says, "Budapest is a compact and beautiful city, and we could quickly move place to place by public transportation with the Budapest card. The buildings of Buda castle, the Hungarian parliament were so beautiful. We could enjoy both of the splendid sunset time and light-up buildings through the Danube dinner cruise. We also had fun and relaxing with Thermal Bath. As for food, you should have foie gras and pork. The place for shopping is the central market. Everything locates in the close distance, and you can enjoy the city efficiently. Sightseeing places: We went to the Buda Castle, the Hungarian parliament, the Danube dinner cruise, the Thermal Bath, and the central market. The best was the Danube dinner cruise. Romantic experience: It was romantic to see the view during the Danube dinner cruise. Kid's experience: Our children (14 y/o and 9 y/o) enjoyed the Thermal Bath a lot. I liked: The compactness of the city."

3. Santorini, Greece "Recommend visiting for the sunset views..."

Lastminute.com reviewer adds, "Very hot, saw the sights! Went to Oia, Fira from Kalmari, tool a cruise which included a volcano tour. De-stressing tips: Relaxed by the pool and the beach. Sightseeing places: Oia, Fira - Oia was very picturesque but very crowded. There were five cruise ships visiting the day that we were there.

Kid's experience: The pool and beach were favourites. I liked: The views, food and friendly locals."
