By Maeve Galea

While international travel seems a far-away fantasy for the foreseeable future, the need for a holiday to get over the mid-year hump remains very real. With the winter chill and shorter daylight hours setting in, daydreaming about our favourite European summer spots has changed from a great way to while-away time to a tortuous task. Luckily there are still ways you can get a little dose of the dolce vita right here at home.

No 24-hour flight or jet lag to get over once you arrive!
