Best March Holiday Destinations
Explore all that the Big Apple has to offer on a trip to the U.S.A. Take a guided city tour of New York to see some of the famous attractions, including Times Square, Grand Central Station, Rockefeller Centre, Wall Street, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and Fifth Avenue. We recommend spending St. Patrick's Day in New York City as it's one of the best places to celebrate! he New York City St. Patrick's Day Parade is one of the oldest and largest in the world. It has been held annually since 1762, even before the United States became a nation. The cityscape looks even more spectacular at night as all the iconic landmarks, like the Empire State Building, light up in green.
Visit Iceland, the Land of Fire and Ice for an unforgettable short break filled with dramatic landscapes and natural wonders including spouting geysers, glaciers, volcanoes and hot springs. Take the Golden Circle', a popular tourist route, to discover famous sights such as Thingvellir National Park and Gullfoss Waterfalls. Explore Reykjavík, the quirky capital and largest city of Iceland or relax in the Blue Lagoon, a geothermic spa rich in minerals and the best place to unwind. It's more pleasant to see the top sights of Iceland at this time of year as the temperature is milder compared to the depths of winter and weather permitting it is still possible to see the enchanting Northern Lights.
Italy's capital of Rome is wonderful location for a city break as it promises history, culture and La Dolce Vita! Journey back to ancient times and learn more about the Roman Empire at iconic landmarks like the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Pantheon. See some of the most spectacular pieces of art at The Vatican, an independent city-state within Rome and official residence of the Pope. We also offer an Easter in Rome including Vatican City break, which undoubtedly offers a unique cultural experience for this celebration.
A holiday in Costa Brava offers a fantastic combination of sun, sea, sand and culture. A short journey from the Costa Brava is the Catalan capital of Barcelona, home to Gaudi’s celebrated architecture, Las Ramblas and the spectacular Gothic Quarter.
