    Europe's winter city destinations

    The winter months do not have to be all doom and gloom, book a car hire winter city break and look forward to wrapping up warm and exploring!

    Barcelona, Spain

    This vibrant city keeps its cool vibe going throughout the winter months. Its mild temperatures range around 14 degrees from December to February, with a drop to around 5 degrees when the sun goes down. Pick up a car hire at Barcelona Airport and head to the city markets where you can grab a few souvenirs or sample the local cuisine.

    Did you know that the Spanish are quite the experts when it comes to brewing a mug of hot chocolate? In winter it isn’t hard to find a local Barcelona bar to go and try this warming drink in.

    Rome, Italy

    Visiting Rome in winter is a great idea for those who want to see all of the city’s fantastic historical sights without the busy crowds that summer brings. All of the attractions stay open throughout the frosty months, sometimes offering discounts. You will find that the hotels and B&B’s all tend to charge a little less too.

    Its best to visit this romantic city before February, as St Valentines tends to hike up the prices!

    StockholmStockholm, Sweden

    You will need to pack a good winter jacket and warm boots to visit this cultural city. Temperatures can get into the minus degrees, yet it is a favourite city for travellers to visit in winter. From November you can try out your skating skills on one of the city’s outdoor ice rinks.

    Did you know that the sun sets around 2:30 pm on the shortest days? Make sure you have your camera ready for that!


    Budapest, Hungary

    A great winter treat we all enjoy is a soak in the bath tub. Veli Bej is known as the secret bath of Budapest and is the oldest Turkish Bath in the city, perfect after a morning walk around the city’s historic streets. If you are still feeling the winter chill then head to one of the city’s bars and order a glass of extra warm mulled wine.

    Did you know that you can take cooking classes in the city to learn how to cook up the traditional Hungarian dish Goulash.

    Could it be too early to mention the C word? Watch out for Christmas blogs, they will be packed full of ideas on where to do your Christmas shopping this year.
