2. Lisbon, Portugal Known as city of 7 hills but we pick Sao Jorge, the highest in town

Lastminute.com reviewer says, "Weather was very pleasant with temp around 17-18c every day, not windy and no humidity. The city is very pretty with wonderful buildings surrounded by lovely hills. People are very friendly, the food is excellent. I liked: Very well placed hotel, which is a very good value for money. Extremely clean & comfortable with very helpful staff. The city tourists spots can be reached by leisurely Walks. The charming city."

Lastminute.com reviewer adds, "The weather was milder than in the UK and there were two beautiful days of sunshine. Went to Belem on the tram, used the multiple free lifts to go up hills or use stairs. Local cuisine delicious."

3. Edinburgh, United Kingdom Arthur's seat to bask in the stunning views of this quaint town

Lastminute.com reviewer says, "The weather was windy, but warm for March. The tourist sights were all lovely, and there was so much to do, especially for a Harry Potter nerd. Such a great place to just walk around, even with the hills!"

4. Lanzarote, Spain Los Hervideros - turquoise waters and small red volcanic hill

Lastminute.com reviewer says, "Weather was great, bit chilly in the evenings and occasionally a bit windy but very sunny, local cuisine was amazing for me as I have a gluten allergy and the offerings were fantastic. Most better than the UK !!! Lots of lovely restaurants by the Marina and on the main strip. There was a lovely market at the marina on Wed and Sat which we had a lovely wander around and bought some jewellery made of volcanic rocks. The walk towards Papagayo beach was lovely over the hills with the mountain one side, sea the other. All in all a great trip!"

5. Prague, Czech Republic Petrin Hill to the best city views and a rose garden

Lastminute.com reviewer shares, "Weather was bright and mild, it was perfect for the miles of walking that are needed in Prague. This time of year is good to visit. The best way to see Prague we found was by electric scooter as you can access everywhere tour busses can't, no traffic as you can use cycle paths, and are great for climbing the many hills. The local cuisine is okay! Just don't expect top London restaurant standards."
