Ideal destinations for May Bank Holiday
As 1 Mai falls on a Monday, there is no better reason to gather your thoughts and baggage for a long weekend, and thus reward yourself for the 200 or so days you work for a year, traveling To one of the following destinations:
Ljubljana, Slovenia Through Ljubljana ride a bicycle, especially when there are automated bike-sharing stations where the first hour is free; Just make sure you’ve created an online account before. If you are a coffee lover, the locals of this city declare coffee drinkers. We encourage you to try local beers (Pelicon, Bevog, Human Fish, Reservoir Dog, Mali Grad). Finally, the castle is the main attraction for tourists and locals alike; Loaded with history, it currently hosts concerts, theater plays, exhibitions and even an outdoor cinema.
Dubrovnik, Croatia Dubrovnik does not look like any other city you’ve seen so far and is not called the Pearl of the Adriatic in vain. This city loaded with 11th-century walls has gone through historical shortcomings produced by the Ottoman Empire, having to face the greed and greed of the Venetians, being finally defeated by Napoleon. More recently known due to the scenes from the Game of Thrones filmed here, the Old City Center is on the UNESCO Heritage List. Take advantage of the Adriatic Sea and the Elafiti Islands and rent a boat trip from Dubrovnik Daily Sailing (which includes a meal at one of the local restaurants).
Florence, Italy In Florence, the capital of the Tuscany region, menù di pizza e gelato sounds like a ballad. Il Mercato Centrale is the perfect place for a quick, delicious and inexpensive snack. However, the most important aspect of the city is art. In the fifteenth century, the family of Medici bankers unofficially took over the leadership of the city, contributing significantly to its artistic development, by supporting those of Michelangelo, Botticelli or Leonardo da Vinci. Michelangelo Square, della Signoria Square, Boboli Gardens, Ponte Vecchio, or Florence Dome should not escape you.
Edinburgh, Scotland Edinburgh looks like the city of absolute inspiration, where the first Harry Potter manuscripts, Adam Smith’s “Adventures of Nations” were written, the place where Charles Darwin was taught before writing about the Origin of Species at the same university where the first animal – the Dolly sheep was cloned. Despite the steep terrain, Edinburgh belongs to pedestrians and cyclists and that’s very good because only legs can lead you to city hideouts, tunnels, stairs, secret gardens. Although Scottish bars and whiskey are a tradition, do not rush to rush over them before sunset, not to miss the spectacle offered by nature and the architecture of the place.
Marrakech, Morocco Marrakech is a city in the heart of Morocco, exotic, the kind of destination that is said to open your mind. Walking through Medina or the Old City Center is an absolute experience. Forget the map as you walk through the streets, go through ancient buildings, shops and houses, through the story of hundreds of years of urban civilization that drives this border of Islamic culture. In addition, you will find delightful Moroccan cuisine. Stopping at one of the restaurants on different roofs will be a break from the typical Medina with the Atlas Mountains, the Koutoubia Mosque or the remote city architecture.
Porto, Portugal In the weekends, in Porto, you will find the streets full of people enjoying an outdoor drink. For example, Café au Lait on Rua Galerias de Paris listens to electronic music and DJs are invited. If the electronic music is not yours, take a look at the door of the Tendinha Dos Clérigos bar, where you can dance from Wednesday to Saturday from 00:00 to 06:00. Day by day, head to Bolhão Square and choose one of the traditional loaves (Broa de Avintes or Pão de Montalegre), a bacalhau, Ameixas de Elvas dessert (a variety of plums cooked for a few days and delicious) or cheeses Vendor
Tenerife, Spain Tenerife is not just about lying on a beach with a drink in your hand. You can see the active Teide volcano, the highest peak in Spain and all of the Atlantic islands and the third largest volcano on the planet. He continues with a visit to Garachico, a settlement that in the 18th century was the most important port of the island, but history turned it into a small, charming village where the volcanic lava created natural pools. Neither Masca village ought to escape you. It is said to be the most beautiful village on the island, where 100 souls along with thousands of cacti, palm trees and lemons call it “house”. And when you look up, look at the ocean. And if you keep on going, you get to him.
