Short breaks in Europe 'the perfect getaway choice'

Holidaymakers looking for short breaks have been told to consider mainland Europe, as the short travelling time makes this type of getaway the "perfect" alternative to a long-haul vacation.

Debbie Goffin, head of sales and marketing at Premier Holidays, said that a long weekend break gives people the chance to explore a new city abroad for a few days.

She went on to say that the stunning beaches, cities and cultures available on the continent are sure to draw people in.

Ms Goffin added: "Spain is always a popular summer destination choice for holidaymakers. Visitors can soak up the cultural delights of 'El Grec', the most famous and most popular festival of Barcelona, which takes place from the end of June."

Recently, Barcelona was named as the fourth most popular destination in Europe, missing out on the top three to Paris, Rome and London.

The Spanish city was also voted the ninth best in the world, according to research from TripAdvisor.
