Why take a City Break?

Why take a City Break?

Not that you need a reason to get away, but here are a few of our favorite excuses:

Romantic surprise

Romantic trips shouldn’t just be for Valentines day or an anniversary. Surprise your other half and whisk them away for a long weekend with one of our European city breaks ideas. Paris, Venice and Romeo and Juliet’s own Verona automatically spring to mind when it comes to love filled cities, but we really think anywhere can be romantic when it’s a surprise. Here's some inspiration for a romantic getaway.

Explore nearby

How much of your home country can you really say you’ve seen? With so many beautiful and historically fascinating cities nearby, why not look closer to home? You could be missing out on so much on your doorstep.

Discover a new European City

Why not start exploring further afield with a cheap city break to Europe. Discover somewhere new or revisit a favourite city on a short break. From taking in the highlights of Paris with its iconic sights (obviously the Eiffel tower springs to mine), take a cruise down the canals of Venice on a gondola or explore the ancient treasures of Florence or Rome.

Eat your way across Europe

Whether you have a sweet tooth and want to work your way through all the gelato of Italy or savour the variety of delicate macaroons on offer in France, Europe has so much to offer your taste buds. Or, if you are more a savoury fan looking for delicious pizza in Italy or the variety of tapas in Spain, there’s lots to offer across Europe. Eating locally provides a truly authentic experience, you don’t have to splash out on a Michelin-star to find some of the best food, but the options always there!

Get sporty

Another great reason to take a city break is for the sporting opportunities available. From the snow capped mountains of the French Alps offering endless outdoor activities including mountain biking, hiking and skiing, through to the countless city breaks with beaches on offer across Europe’s coast lines providing waves a plenty for anyone who fancies a go at windsurfing or more under the water activities while diving – there are so many options for city we highly recommend city breaks in Spain, Benidorm being a particular favourite with our guests.
