For a romantic city break, Venice is a great choice. Imagine gliding down the Grand Canal in a Gondola, strolling hand in hand through tiny alley ways to hidden piazzas, discovering cosy trattorias serving delicious handmade pasta dishes or exploring the Piazza San Marco on a moonlit night. Bruges is another great romantic city break destination. The medieval city centre beckons with a promise of sparkling canals and cosy cobbled streets.
For a cultural city break, you will be spoilt for choice with the destinations on offer. For example, Berlin is great for a cultural city break. Re-emerging from the aftermath of WWII Berlin has firmly established itself as a leader in the cultural scene. The city is brimming with art from opera to museums to the performing arts a Berlin city break is the perfect choice. An Amsterdam city break would be another great choice if culture is your thing. Choose from 65 theatres and concert halls, 42 museums and over 140 galleries all brought to you at affordable prices.
Rome would be an obvious choice for a historic city break. The history of Rome spans 2,800 years and over that time a tiny Italian village has evolved in to an international worldwide political and culture centre whilst retaining its reputation as one of the most beautiful cities of the ancient world. While on your Rome city break, you will be spoilt for choice with the array of historic sights to visit. The Forum, the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Vatican the Spanish Steps and so the list goes on.
For a relaxing city break why not consider a coastal destination that also offers the appeal of a beach. Barcelona is a great city break choice if you are looking to combine your city break with a beach. Imagine exploring the spires of Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia or browsing the Picasso Museum in the morning and then heading off for an afternoon on the beach – weather permitting! Although even if you travel on your Barcelona city break out of season, a stroll along the beach is wonderful at any time of year.
If you are looking for something a bit different on your city break, why not head to one of the Eastern European destinations. As European City of Culture 2011, Tallinn has steadily gained in popularity as a top city break destination. Some of the less known Polish cities would also be a good choice for those who prefer to lead rather than follow the pack with their choice of city break. Wrocław in the centre of the Silesian Lowland is often referred to as the Venice of the North. The 12 islands of the city are linked by 100 bridges, giving the appearance of a city on water.
