Where to go in May
May is one of our most popular holiday months – and it’s no wonder. The weather in southern Europe is warming up nicely, so it’s the perfect time to explore somewhere a little closer to home. Discover the romance of Italy or perhaps experience sailing down the Rhine. Further afield, the pleasant temperatures make May an ideal month to travel to North America and North Africa.
