Porto The city of Porto is a year round popular destination and will be the fourth Portuguese destination on the Monarch network. Porto joins Lisbon, which was introduced last summer, Faro and Funchal. Renowned for its port wine and architecture, the coastal city of Porto sits in the northwest of the country.

The Swedish capital of Stockholm is a vibrant city made up of 14 islands all walkable thanks to the extensive network of bridges the city has to offer. Stockholm is a great city for exploring – with a variety or shops, cafes and museums there is something for everyone.

Monarch adds another capital city to its network with Zagreb. Zagreb has been growing in popularity over the last few years and with its gothic themes and colourful architecture, the Croatian city makes an ideal city break.
