Any ideas for a 4 night europe trip over easter? (vienna, but warmer!)

Hello kind strangers,

My girlfriend and I are brainstorming for places to holiday over Easter. we live in London (UK) and don't want flight times to be too long, so we're just considering European destinations. we're both allergic to colder weather (somewhat ruling out Vienna-esque and Scandinavian destinations) and don't want to spend a lot of the time on the road (ruling out road-trippy ideas like the Amalfi coast). we've also visited the following: Rome, Venice, Lisbon, Barcelona, Seville, Paris, Brussels, and Amsterdam. the ideal would be something like Vienna - but warmer!

we've stared at a map for ages and done a lot of Googling, but I would appreciate any advice from you!

Odessa ?
temps about 12-15c probably more in the sun.
Your Vienna reference made me think of it : architecture can be considered similar.

Southern Spain? The Canaries? Morocco?

Thank you for the suggestions everyone

I don't know much about Malta - is there enough to do there to occupy 4 nights without spending a lot of time driving?

We've visited Southern Spain before, she isn't interested in the Canaries, and I'm not keen on Morocco because of problems I've heard with visitors who have severe food allergies (I do)

We spent a lovely Easter in Nice. We also spent an Easter in Naples. Would recommend both.

Malta has a great deal to do, a bus system to take you to sites outside Valletta and since 4 nights is just 3 full days, yes, plenty to do. I stayed for a couple of weeks, slept in a fishing village https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marsaxlokk, outside the historic walled city of Mdina https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mdina, and in the stunning capital Valletta https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valletta. In 3 days you'd hardly scratch the surface.

Lyon is interesting and has tremendous food. Marseille and Montpelier are both nice and could be easily combined
