I need inspiration - a short weekend hop to Europe - fairly romantic, some culture, nice restaurants/bars, your getting my drift. Probably about March.

Our problem is we only have maybe 2 or 3 days so dont want to spend lots of time changing planes or on flights longer than maybe 3(ish) hours. We are based in Belfast.

Berlin, Paris & Venice have been suggested but could someone perhaps suggest somewhere different? And maybe a good hotel - not budget but maybe boutique but central.

Thanks for any advice!

I would suggest checking the wikipedia page with destinations from Belfast International Airport.

I find that always helpful, to see which airlines fly directly to which places.

If I had to choose something different from these, I would probably go to Nice...it's nice
No really, it's not too big so a couple of days would be fine, it has great bars, restaurants etc. and probably the weather is ok as well. And fairly romantic. I mean, a salad nicoise with a bottle of white wine at a beach restaurant....;)
And even if you are tired of Nice after one day, go to nearby Antibes or Monaco for a day trip, just a short and beautiful traintrip along the coast from Nice.

Hope this helps.

O, forgot to mention: don't go there in summer! Hot and crowded.

Iceland! Not far from Ireland. And cheaper than it used to be!

Cheers Jun- though l was hoping a bit further flung than Scotland - plus l will be in Edinburgh in March any how to see Ireland beat Scotland in the 6 nations and my sister lives there l visit pretty often!!!

Alsace - dont think l can get there directly from Belfast though :(

I just watched The Sound of Music for the umpteenth time, so I'm going to helpfully suggest Austria. Preferrably up in the mountains. Bring a poofy dress and a guitar!
