As every year, the Constitution bank holiday is the time chosen by thousands of Spaniards to make a pleasure trip. Surely, you are thinking that it would be ideal to enjoy a small getaway, right, taking advantage of the fact that on Friday 6th December the Constitution Day is celebrated and on Sunday 8th December is Immaculate Day? Fit 2 Trip suggests some ideas to get the most out of the Constitution bank holiday:
The eternal city, the city of love, the city of seven hills, Rome is an iconic city to travel to and has many names. You can find direct flights from many cities, such as Madrid, Barcelona, Alicante, Seville, Valencia or Malaga.
We recommend visiting the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Navona Square, the Spain Square or the Basilica of San Pedro, among many others.
One of the most visited cities in Europe, Amsterdam should always be on your list for the December bank holiday. Stroll along the canals, visit Dam Square or the famous Van Gogh Museum, where on Friday afternoons you can enjoy live music played by DJ’s while you drink a cocktail in the museum.
The prices of Amsterdam will be higher, but you can always consider looking for accommodation slightly away from the centre so that your trip is cheaper.
The Portuguese capital and Porto are among the most visited European cities in recent times. The mixture of the old and modern that Lisbon has, makes many people fall in love with it.
Do visit the Castle of San Jorge, the Convento do Carmo and enjoy the night in the Bairro Alto. If you would like to know the history of the city, we advise you to visit the Lisbon Story Centre.
Awarded with the “European best destination 2017” Porto has become one of the favorite destinations of travelers. The city, on the shores of the Atlantic and the Douro River, is beautiful. Do not forget to visit its famous wineries and eat a “francesinha”.
For all those who love Christmas, the English capital can offer you a total Christmas immersion; get carried away by the colourful lights, get lost in the Christmas markets inspired by several countries, and of course, enjoying an experience at Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, which has markets, attractions, ice rinks, recreating an Alpine town, including cabins with Christmas karaoke, shows for children like Cinderella on Ice, Ice circus, an exhibition of ice sculptures…
The star city for express visits is Milan. Most visitors who come to it every year only stay for three or four days, so the Constitution Break will be a great opportunity to discover it for the first time.
Among its main points of interest are the majestic Milan Cathedral or the Víctor Manuel II Gallery.
Granada is one of our favorite destinations! If I would like to enjoy winter sports the Sierra Nevada mountains offer a wide variety of winter sports, and it is just 30 minutes away from the city center. Furthermore, in this city from the south of Spain, you can enjoy the tapas gastronomy and do not forget to book your tickets in advance to visit the beautiful palace of the Alhambra.
In these dates, we can also go to Marrakech to enjoy its pleasant temperatures or shopping. Morocco is characterized by its Arab history, spicy cuisine and endless desert landscapes.
Of course, you cannot miss a pass through the dunes of Erg Chegaga, the Djemaa el-Fna square in Marrakech or go shopping in the souks, where artisans work in a traditional way, while their children continue to learn the trade.
