Five exciting European cities to visit this spring

Travel in style with NetJets this season
While Europe’s cities are rammed during the summer months, spring is the ideal time to visit before the crowds descend. The warm weather and quieter streets make it the perfect season to explore before the scorching heat of the summer hits.

This spring, why not spend a spontaneous weekend away exploring the bustling bazaars of Istanbul, the gorgeous gardens of Paris, or another European gem? With NetJets, you’re able to charter a flight with as little as 10 hours’ notice, leaving you free to make plans at the last-minute.

Here are five cities that should be on your list this spring:


May in Munich brings Springfest (or Fruhlingfest), Oktoberfest’s little sister, and is the ideal time to visit this traditional German city. Pull out your lederhosen and prepare for beer-filled steins in the sunshine. Soak up the contagious vibe in one of the city’s numerous pub gardens or old-fashioned beer cellars.

If beer isn’t your thing, there are plenty of lovely parks such as the Englischen Garten to explore, as well as quirky shops, galleries and a number of excellent restaurants to try.

Get lost in the small cobbled lanes of Naples and discover the magic of this Italian city; admire the myriad street art adorning the walls of every building; pop your head into small, family-run workshops and shops; settle down for an authentic Italian pizza and an icy glass of Aperol spritz; check out the museums boasting Caravaggios before strolling down to the promenade for gelato. Naples offers an endless supply of charm and energy.

Closest airport: Capodichino (LIRN), Grazzanise (LIRM)


A magical city all year round, Paris is particularly spectacular in the spring-time when the city warms up and greenery blooms around the city. Take it all in with a walk through the hidden gem of the Marais Mansion and its pristine gardens, or the Promenade Plantée. Settle down in the Jardin des Tuileries with a good book and a picnic.  Get your fill of culture in one of the city’s museums and galleries in between copious cheese and wine stops in the many cafes. Finish off the day with a stroll along the Seine.

Summer in Turkey is blazing hot and calls for days spent cooling off in the sea and relaxing on the beach. If you’re keen on exploring the city’s incredible history, architecture, and culture, the cooler spring season is when to visit.

Easily accessible, Istanbul is a hive of activity and energy, a mixing-pot of European and Asian culture. Visit the buzzing bazaars and find a treasure trove of goods before taking in the beauty of the city’s beautiful mosques. Retreat from the madness after a long day and stay at one of the city’s calming hotels.

Closest airport: Ataturk Intl (LTBA), Samandira (LTBX), Hezarfen (LTBW)


Lisbon offers everything you could ever want from a city break; a booming food, arts and design scene; hundreds of quirky and friendly places to eat and drink; fascinating markets to explore; and some of the most beautiful, bright old buildings.  Stay in an old palace, ride the fairy tale wooden trams that grumble their way through the city, drink on a rooftop bar, and enjoy an abundant of freshly caught seafood.

Closest airport: Lisbon (LPPT), Cascais (LPCS)
