So DH is 40 next month and we had originally planned to go to Barcelona for a few days - without the kids. grin But the flights were awkward and meant we'd really need to leave the kids with my parents for 3 nights, which is asking a bit much I think. Plus it was just too expensive.

So he thinks the whole thing is off, but I am endlessly googling, trying to find an affordable city break:

:flying from Edinburgh or Aberdeen to Europe
: 2 nights either Friday-Sunday or Saturday-Monday
: about £500 for the pair of us blush I know, but it's all I've got.

Can anyone give me any good ideas? Thanks so much...

Lovely idea for your DHs birthday, OP!
From Edinburgh you can get to ...
Berlin - amazing city, might be v sunny if you're lucky
Prague - prob not that sunny, but beautiful and v walkable
Dubrovnik - might be v sunny if you're lucky, beautiful
Lisbon - should be sunny, great place
Nice - haven't been but should be sunny
Venice & Paris - you can never get tired of going to either IMO!

Have a lovely time. smile

Can you get to Krakow? Beautiful little place!

Marrakech. Warm, sunny, and cheap. Not immensely long flights either
