Monarch Launches New Routes From Manchester

AFTER the bleakness of winter, spring brings the perfect opportunity to brighten your mood and look forward to warmer temperatures – and what better way of preparing for summer than with a spring European city break.

Flights to Venice from Manchester start at just £39.

Monarch has just launched five new routes from Manchester to some of the finest cities across Italy and Croatia, with prices starting at just £39 one way including taxes.

From the Italian capital of Rome, to the fashion metropolis of Milan, to the beautiful Croatian coastal city of Dubrovnik, Monarch’s new routes open up some very tempting destinations.

VeniceVeniceVenice and Venetian Riviera – romance and relaxation
One of the most iconic cities in the world, Venice deserves a place on everyone's must-see list. Impressive palaces, bridges and gondola rides make for wonderful sights in one of the prettiest and most romantic corners of Italy.

With fantastic beaches along the nearby Lido coast, Venice offers a more relaxing option than the intensity of Rome, or the vibrancy of Milan.

Flights from Manchester to Venice start at just £39.

MilanMilanMilan – the centre of fashion
The second largest city in Italy, Milan is known for great football, opera, vibrant nightlife, and most of all, fashion.

Despite being a relatively modern city compared to Rome or Venice, Milan still has many art galleries and museums that are well worth visiting – Leonardo da Vinci’s painting of The Last Supper at Santa Maria delle Grazie is a good place to start.

The Milanese, like most Italians, like to look good. An event that they dress up for in particular is the passeggiata – a leisurely evening stroll around the centre of town that's especially popular on a Sunday. Get a table at a pavement café to get a sense of true Italian style.

Flights from Manchester to Milan Malpensa start at just £39.

VeronaVeronaVerona – Italy, the laid-back way
If you’re looking for a trip filled with Italian culture that’s a little more laid-back than the major cities, head to Verona.

Most famous as the setting of Romeo and Juliet, the city is packed with medieval architecture, including the Verona Cathedral and the tiny chapel San Giorgetta, which is decorated with early Renaissance frescoes.

Try shopping for antiques in Corso Santa Anastasia, or visit Juliet’s House, as you take Italian life at a slower pace.

Flights from Manchester to Verona start at just £41.

Dubrovnik – beautiful Croatian coast
Situated on the Dalmatian Coast, Dubrovnik is a true Croatian beauty. Its medieval feel and stunning sights have earned it UNESCO World Heritage Site status – and the nickname, the 'Pearl of the Adriatic'.

Whether you’re looking to take in the beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, palaces and fountains, or bathe on one of the nearby beaches, Dubrovnik caters for both culture and relaxation.

Flights from Manchester to Dubrovnik start at just £42.

All Monarch customers are allocated a seat at check-in – or you can pre-book your seat position from £4.99 per one-way flight. Extra legroom seats are available from only £9.99.

Prices quoted are each way including taxes when booked as part of a return trip. Base fares may fluctuate in price during promotional period according to demand. Cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotion. Pay by debit card to avoid credit card/PayPal booking fees.
