Sicily on sale

Cobbled streets, ancient palazzi and rustic restaurants are just some of Taormina's attractions. Indulge in the gelaterie or catch the opera at the Greco-Roman amphitheatre, with its views of Mount Etna. Voyages Jules Verne is offering a week-long stay at the Park Hotel Silemi (pictured) – just north of the town centre, in Letojanni – for £545 per person. Return BA flights from Gatwick on 28 August are included.

French Riviera for less

The cost of a trip to the Côte D'Azur doesn't have to give you the blues. BA Holidays is offering a five-night stay at the Le Grimaldi hotel in Nice for £449 per person, including return flights from Heathrow in July. This four-star hotel is in the heart of Nice, which gives you the opportunity to explore both the beaches and landmarks such as the church of St-Nicholas as well as the Riviera resorts.

Malaysian adventure

For wildlife fans, Gap Adventures' "Sabah Adventure" group tour might tempt. Departing on 27 August, it visits an Orangutan-rehabilitation centre, rainforests, a turtle sanctuary and scales the height of one of South-east Asia's highest peaks, Mt Kinabalu, for £929. Accommodation, guiding and excursions are included throughout the 10-day itinerary, but not flights.
