TIn first place is Palma de Mallorca, with a city break score of 9.49. As well as being amongst the top-scoring cities for things to do, Palma also enjoys beautiful weather too, meaning that if you get tired of exploring the historic city centre and masses of great bars and restaurants, then you can relax on the golden sandy beaches instead.

Another Spanish city, Seville, ranks in the top 3. The capital of Andalusia has a city break score of 9.08 and again ranks high for things to do. With its charming streets, hidden gardens, and links with flamenco dancing, Seville is a great city for a romantic getaway. Seville is also the warmest of the city’s on our list, with temperatures averaging at 65.8°F over the course of the year.

Completing the top three best cities is another Spanish city, Valencia, with the excellent weather again playing a big part in this. However, it’s not all just about the sunshine in Valencia, as it’s also known for its thriving nightlife and striking architecture. The city ranks in third with a city break score of 8.13.
