am trying to book a budget weekend break away this year with my Mum. We've been to Paris and Dublin before.
I've looked at Rome, Prague, Venice, Madrid, Amsterdam.... getting confused now!
Can anyone recommend a 'cheap' destination with sights and decent priced eating places???
Budapest looks great, but I've not been there yet.
I'm currently trying to organize a trip to Rome, it's not that cheap but quite reasonable at this time of year.
I would too reccommend prague - it is stunning. We went two weeks before Christmas and although it was freezing I wouldn't want to go at any other time of year. The Xmas markets were fab and it seemed to be set like a picture postcard.
We are going to Sardinia for a long weekend in June (our 10th wedding anniversary) and got really cheap flights with Ryanair. We also loved Salzburg - but prague was definitely our favourite.
this is probably a bit of a useless post, but....
as has been said before, prague is totally gorgeous! everything is within walking distance of the centre, it has the most beautiful buildings, cheap beer (if you know where to look!) and it's steeped in history.
but where ever you go - hope you have fun!
We found a nice 4 star hotel near castle and a suite for 3 nights B&B £360 for the 3 of us.
as for nearer Prague , but itsgetting very busy nowadays , Bruges , Ghent ,and Antwerp , all can get to by eurostar ,
also even thou its gonna be cold Stockholm is brillaint and Rekjavik , teh same both gobnna be cold and are more expensive when you getthere but worth seeing and not as commercial as your Prague. Paris Rome etc
they are going to be the next pragues, both places are cheaper then prague and and the same feel
been to prague twice now, prefered the first time in the summer, nice place but wont return for a while, getting to busy and prices rising fast
It is an amazing place, and as reports suggest very competively priced , If you wander away from the tourist areas the prices are remarkable - 5 of us had lunch with lager , a tenner!!
I would steel away from the main drag and stay in the old town or up by the powder tower - the castle side may be a little too far out.
I have also been to Budapest , in my opinion this had a bit more history then Prague but was not as quaint.
Prices were very good even on the main drag.
A slight word of warning however - Prague seems to be a victim of its own success - we stayed wed/thurs but on friday morning and at the airport hoards of stag partys were arriving- If you want to view this beautiful city without numerous male flashers go midweek
I also love amsterdam but price wise I found it at the higher end and more of a bloke place.
Barcelona is very good - plenty to see
