Publisher's round-up, 14 August

£289 & up -- 3 Nights in Moscow w/Flights & City Tour, Save 43%
A few years ago, flights to Moscow would have cost you well over £200, making a trip to the iconic Russian capital extremely pricey, on top of being a pain to organise. That's all changing now, thanks to a number of airlines launching flights and competing on prices -- including easyJet's new service to Moscow, which started earlier this year. The upshot is that, for the first time ever, we've found a super-hot Russian city break for under £300. You get return flights, three nights at a central hotel with daily breakfast and a sightseeing bus tour, plus train travel to the airport and a stash of Metro tickets -- all for £289. That's almost silly.

£149 -- Luxury Irish Castle Escape w/50€ Credit, Reg £305
Be honest, how often to you get to stay in an actual castle in Ireland? This one is a proper 17th-century Tudor-baronial pile set on a 43-acre estate, and it comes highly commended -- "magnificent", says Condé Nast Traveler, and Tatler reckons the spa is "fabulous". It's been turned into a boutique 5-star hotel, and again they're not messing around here -- it’s won the Global Luxury Hotel Award for Best Luxury Country Hotel in the World four years. in. a. row. I want to book this immediately.

£169 -- Florence 4-Star City Break w/Flights, Save 45%
I love this deal because it proves you don't have to stay in a bed-bug-ridden dive to get a great price on a city break. At £169 for three nights and flights, this is excellent value, especially for the gorgeous (and popular) city of Florence. What really makes this deal for me, though, is the hotel, a 4-star boutique property built in a 19th-century former palace in a great central location. Bargain.
