Travel Forums Europe City reccomendations

1. Posted by traveltothepoin (First Time Poster 1 posts) 4w Star this if you like it!


I was wondering if anyone could recommend a city in europe which might match what I'm looking for a break this winter
- Somewhere which is warmish in november/december time
- Good hiking options walkable from the city
- Buzy downtown
- Love skyscrapers/a good skyline so would be cool to see a bit of that
Not much to go off but these are the things which make a good city break for me!

Look into Benidorm, especially if you are young and like hitting up nightlife. I think it is too cool for swimming but much better than cold rain or snow.

Asking for Europe, and assuming December - January is your winter time frame, kind of limits you a little bit.

Come on back and tell us what places your research has come up with.

Are you looking for good beaches?

Good luck.

The poster above is correct in saying that Cyprus has a mild winter climate. Paphos/Pafos has plenty of nightlife, bars, restaurants and shopping though it's not what I'd call a city. There are buses to the Troodos mountain villages for walking. Limassol and Larnaca are other possibilities (or Nicosia if you don't mind being away from the sea). Cyprus has a system of local and long-distance buses but hiring a car would make it much easier to explore the countryside from any of those places. Cyprus drives on the left.

You might consider Malaga in southern Spain. It's pretty mild in Nov/Dec, has good shopping & nightlife plus easy access (bus or train) to the (somewhat 'Anglicised') resort towns such as Benidorm with even more nightlife & bars. There's also good access (bus or train) to walking in e.g. the hills above Nerja or the Caminito del Rey.

Sorrento in Italy is also mild, with easy access (train) to Naples nightlife and lots of walking options in the surrounding hills (bus and train). If you prefer a big city you could stay in Naples itself (lots of shopping, bars, restaurants & nightlife) and take bus or train into the surrounding countryside.

Valletta or Sliema in Malta are both possibilities. Sliema in particular has a busy nightlife, as do all the resort towns along that stretch of coast (e.g. Bugibba, Paceville). Malta has an excellent bus network, lots of walking possibilities and a mild winter climate. Malta drives on the left.

Switzerland's Engelberg Valley

With hundreds of kilometers available to explore, the Engelberg Valley gives limitless hiking opportunities - from multiple-day hut-to-hut hikes to relaxed walking trails with equally beautiful views.
