(Affiliate) We’re in the middle of planning all our travels to come; the pre-Christmas getaways and the New Year vacations. At the moment we’re all about those weekend getaways to both old favorites and new big cities (yes, we’ve even started planning our big city hair!). And we’re dreaming of a weekend away in the nearest weeks to come. Not only for relaxation – even though we’re pretty great at that – but also for the Christmas shopping! Are there any combo better? Shopping and travel; we don’t think so! Which is why we’ve gathered 3 big city package getaways (yes, both flight and hotel) to book ASAP:
Ireland, the most green and beautiful country in the world (if you ask me J). I’ve been there for only one week – and you can

but I absolutely fell in love.

Dublin is the capital of Ireland and has too much of the good things – if that’s even possible? There is just to much to see (and I’ll write my favorites down for you) and I promise you, you won’t be disappointed.

Dublin is a very busy place, but not in the crazy way like New York, London and places like that, but in a really cosy way. There are bars and cosy cafes everywhere, so when get tired or just want to have some fun, you’ll find it on every corner. My favorite district in Dublin is around temple bar; so much life to offer and a lot of good food. You should also visit the Porterhouse, the oldest microbrewery in Dublin. If you find yourself there, they serve their own beer, which is SO good. I could go on forever! But seriously Dublin is just something you need to experience.
The beautiful Belvedere Hotel is in the heart of Dublin, with modern interior and only two minutes from the Garden of Remembrance. Full Irish breakfast is served every morning – and believe me when i say you should eat first and then take a nap. It’s super delicious, but also super big! The hotel also have a cosy bar; perfect for post-shopping relaxation.
– 2,3 or 4 nights in a double room
– Full Irish breakfast everyday
– Flight both ways

One of the biggest up and coming cities, Hamburg, is filled with long channels and a lot of beautiful bridges. The beauty of this place surprises most of the people that visit for the first time, as well as those who have been there a lot just can’t get enough. Non of us have visited Hamburg ourselves, and to be honest we’ve never thought of it as a must-see, but that has definitely changed and it’s absolutely a priority city of ours at the moment for so many reasons. Art, architecture, growing shopping (both fashion and interior) and of course some really good restaurants!
Hamburg is literally a cultural-dream as we see and the city has a lot of history to offer as well and a lot of it is on the UNESCO World Heritage Site, like the lager house Speicherstadt and the historical fish harbour.
The four star Rilano Hotel Hamburg has a beautiful view over the Elbe river, with a privat dock. Super sentral, yet a bit out of the city centre, giving you the opportunity to both totally relax and have the big city life the city has to offer.
– 2 nights
– Breakfast
– Flight both ways
– Gym access

Rome; do I even have to say anything to inspire you? Don’t think so… There are few cities in the world like Rome; with its 3000 year old culture, architecture and art, the shopping and some of our favorite restaurants (and wines!). Rome is simply an all time favorite of ours even though we’ve been there for a couple of times. We simply just get get enough of all it has to offer, and we keep on finding new favorite spots ever single time. We’ll probably never know all of it, but what we know, we LOVE!
7 Inn Spanish Steps, the boutique hotel located in one of the most beautiful parts of the city; the Spanish steps, has everything you need for a weekend getaway. The location, the look and the breakfast! And when I say the location, I really mean THE location. The hotel is literally 50 meters from what’s probably our favorite shopping area in the city. Did anyone say pre-Christmas destination? YES.
– 2,3 or 4 nights in a double room
– Breakfast every morning
