Palma weekend breaks, plus holidays in Majorca
Possibly not on your list of ideas for a long weekend but Majorca breaks in the capital city of Palma de Majorca offer much for a short 2013 mini holiday in the sun. On one side of Palma Cathedral is the lake, fountain and open views to the marina, on the other the narrow old city streets lead to the Plaça Major
filled with cafes designed for relaxing and "people watching". Take a taxi or walk up to Bellver Castle for stunning views of Palma Cathedral and the rest of the city. For a break from the city, take the narrow gauge train from Palma to Soller and travel through orange and lemon groves with stunning views over the mountains. Palma de Majorca is ideal for spring and autumn long weekend breaks when the city loses its large numbers of summer tourists and holiday makers.
Majorca holiday flights land at Palma de Mallorca Airport which is a short 30 minute journey by bus from the city. Buses leave on average every 15 mins.
Door to door private transfers to Palma hotels can be booked in advance.
