A leisurely autumn stroll along the banks of the Seine and the Danube; the unique buzz of Barcelona’s Rambla; New York’s pulsating energy; iconic landmarks in Moscow and Paris; remnants of ancient civilisations in Rome, Athens and Istanbul; a pre-requisite gondola ride along Venice’s Grand Canal; the intimate cobbled streets of Dubrovnik’s Old Town; a master class in art appreciation at Amsterdam’s prestigious Rijksmuseum or the Prado in Madrid; poignant reminders of a turbulent past in Berlin and Prague; the sophisticated boutiques along Milan’s Via Monte Napoleone; uncovering gastronomic heaven utopia amongst the restaurants of San Sebastian and Bologna; the musical heritage of Vienna and Salzburg; a warming glass of glühwein at Cologne’s Christmas Market… It’s certainly no understatement to suggest that the cities of Europe and beyond quite literally abound in architectural splendour, centuries-rich heritage and immeasurable cultural and artistic vibrancy.
As our name suggests, we at Cities Direct are leaders in our field. Indeed, having looked after over 40,000 customers in our 14-year history, we have absolute confidence in our pedigree, not only in the high quality and personal service we continuously strive to offer, but also in our extensive portfolio of city-break destinations, be they long-standing perennial favourites or the latest must-visit haunts.
Whether you’re looking for a more classic city break destination or perhaps somewhere a little more contemporary, a city brim full of art or perhaps more famed for its historical value or retail richesse, a quick weekend jaunt or a more leisurely sojourn, our dedicated and expert staff can guide you through our diverse range of cities to find the perfect destination to suit both your taste and budget.
And yet, whilst the thrill of a few days away in Stockholm, Seville or St Petersburg may satiate the desire for a break from the norm, consider, too, the allure of a multi-centre holiday, perhaps contrasting the energy and rush of the city with the more laid-back atmosphere of the coast, lakes or mountains in which to truly unwind.
Alternatively let the journey itself become the focal point of the holiday with one of our superb ‘Scenic Rail Journeys’, taking in perhaps the valleys of the Rhine and Moselle, or even the dramatic alpine scenery of Switzerland’s Glacier Express. Or if the city firmly remains your passion, why not combine two or even three destinations for the ultimate cultural experience.
Whatever your requirements, whether you’re a first time visitor or a seasoned traveller, be it flights from Scotland or the Eurostar from London, a luxury landmark hotel or a more modest and intimate abode, we take pride in tailor-making your holiday getaway, always offering unbeatable value and leaving you free to enjoy a holiday at your own pace.
What’s more when booking with Cities Direct, not only do you travel knowing that your city break has been expertly designed just for you, you also have the additional peace of mind that we are fully bonded with the CAA under ATOL number 5501, and for those trips that do not include air travel, we are fully compliant with the Package Travel Regulations. We are also members of AITO (Association of Independent Tour Operators).
