I'm going to be 40 in December and DH has said he'll take me away for the weekend without the kids. We love city breaks, museums, eating out, culture in general, don't mind cold or warm (just as well, given the time of year!)

We've been to quite a few European cities and went to Paris for DH's 40th (not our first visit there). I'm thinking maybe Prague or Krakow, as I think they'd be rather magical in the cold, but has anyone else been somewhere wonderful and, preferably, romantic in early Dec?

We live near the Eurostar terminal and not far from all the major London airports. We have about three days, as I don't think my mother will cope with our boys for longer than that grin

Lisbon - it's got everything, great culture, history, food.

I'd like to go to Lisbon, but DH went there for his stag do with some friends.

We've both been to Barcelona, but we love it and would happily go back.

I'm starting to lean towards Valencia, but there are no direct flights in Dec. Maybe I should have a party in Dec and go away in spring 2014?

Granada in Spain is great.
