You read the news, right? 2017 will be the year of long weekends, the year during which holidays will incidentally — and luckily! — happen to be very close to the weekend. It’s only the first week of January, and I already feel like 2017 will gift us with so many great emotions! A long weekend usually brings a trip with it, at least for us at TBS, and even if we don’t go too far, we like to try to cross the border, and go to another country. We wrote a lot about European capitals like Paris, Barcelona or Berlin. This time, we decided to introduce you to some less obvious places in Europe that are also interesting, and definitely deserve more attention. Have a look at our gallery, jot down your favorite long weekend plan… And get booking!

  • We love long weekends, the more the better. The big bonus here is that we are located in the center of the world 🙂 and you are absolutely right the long weekends are the best opportunity to travel around Europe of Africa, the flights are cheap, RyanAir is always there and it’s the best .

    Porto is the best city to live and study. The center became unesco heritage years ago. Its a city full of misteries with a lot to visit and discover. And the food…. wow!

  • Great choices! When I first moved to Europe, I was supposed to stay at least two years. I traveled 50 weekends a year those first two years, figuring I needed to see as much of Europe as possible before it became a faraway, expensive trip again. I ended up extending my contract, and eventually stayed for six years, continuing to travel most weekends, though I ended up repeating some of my favorite places. One tactic was to show up at the airport with a carry-on and buy a last-minute ticket for next to nothing. I didn’t know where I’d be sleeping–or even which country I’d end up in–but it always worked out great.
    My new home is in Carcassonne, in the south of France. Another ideal weekend getaway, though I’m happy to live here full-time!
