Although summer may be on the way out there is no need to not go book a holiday to catch some winter sun. What’s more is that the weather in Europe is generally getting warmer which means more and more travellers are beginning to book their holidays all over the continent. From the sandy shores of the Amalfi Coast to pebbled beaches in Liguria, Italian destinations unsparingly topped the list of best holiday locations within Europe. Coastal spots also ranging from Croatia to Greece, which are known for their history, culture and parties also made it on the list. If you’re looking to book a holiday all you need to do is ensue you have a valid passport, your EHIC in tow and a pick a destination from the list below.

Sardinia

Even if you mention Sardinia, most people think of the glamour of the Costa Smeralda but there is also plenty more to entertain visitors, including the rugged landscape of the granite interior. Those who are foodies, can indulge in the seafood, and if you happen to be a history buff, the strange and evocative remnants of Sardinia’s ancient nuraghic culture. A well as a scattering of Carthaginian Roman ruins, Pisan churches and Spanish Baroque.

Sicily

The largest island in the Mediterranean is a fascinating mix of Greek temples, Norman churches and baroque palazzos. Sicily is the kind of destination where sightseeing is always more, it is also the combination of history, a hot climate and a vibrant contemporary eating, drinking and shopping scene that gives this island such an all-year round appeal.

Crete

This island is home to one of the longest beach-lounging seasons. The north-coast beaches tend to be long and sandy, while others are ideally shorter and far more secluded. For those who aren’t a fan of the beach there are still many things to explore. There are many country chapels of the 14th and 15th centuries, ruined Minoan palaces and towns, plus op-drawer hiking and botanising opportunities.

Malta

With over 300 sunny days a year, it is no wonder that Malta is one of the biggest holiday hotspots. It is surrounded by crystal clear blue waters, and can be enjoyed by swimmers, snorkelers and divers. It also has plenty of 7,000 year history. Malta has a greater density of historical sights than any other country, which includes prehistoric temples as well as roman catacombs, medieval towns and the incredible architectural and artistic legacy f Knights of St John, also known as the Knights of Malta.
