Frühling, Wochenende – die perfekte Zeit für Citytrips. Aber es muss nicht immer London, Venedig oder Barcelona sein! Unser Experte empfiehlt drei Alternativen, wo manches besser ist als in den großen Schwesterstädten.
Stroll seaward down Rambla passing by elegant Art Nouveau buildings and Roman ruins … Barcelona? Nope, Tarragona, 85 kilometers to the southwest. The city is just as delightful as the Catalan capital, but without the hype.
Palaces, canals, bridges – you could be forgiven for thinking this was Venice, which is actually 25 kilometers away. The difference: Chioggia is far more laid back and down-to-earth than the tourism magnet.
London by the sea
Bars, boutiques and world-class theaters: The seaside resort of Brighton has them all. Just an hour and a half south of London, Brighton has plenty of cosmopolitan flair, but beats the great metropolis hands down on one score: Unlike London, it has a wonderful sandy beach.
