Cities

Fancy a short break?  Why not consider a city break in one of the world's leading cities.

Whether its culture, food, romance or shopping - there is a city just waiting for you.

We can tailor your short break to anywhere you would like.

How about fitting in a show?  We can do that for you tool

Restaurant reservations - leave it with us!

Here are just a few ideas to tempt you - but there are plenty more where these came from.

Just tell us where you would like to go and we'll get you there!

Paris

Paris, the city of lights and romance and  just a hop, step and jump away.  Famed for its fashion, its culture and its rich history, its small enough to walk around and savour the ambience.

Enjoy some of the finest dining in the world

(there are too many Michelin starred restaurants to choose from) or just bag a boulangerie  baguette and dine by the Seine.

With delightful markets, antique shops and boutiques to browse, shopping is a must.

Disneyland Paris is just  a short ride away - so there is also something for the kids.

And don't forget to pop in and see the Mona Lisa - she's looking forward to your visit!

Rome

What did the Romans ever do for us?

Well, for one thing, they built this wonderful city for us all to enjoy.  The eternal city is a wonderful place to visit and is packed full of history and magical sights.  

Visit the Vatican and marvel at the splendid artworks, walk to the Colosseum and be amazed at the structure, sit on the Spanish Steps and take in the atmosphere and throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain and make a wish.

Don't forget the food either - take yourself off to a traditional trattoria and fill up on pasta, pizza and wonderful wine.  

London

No need to travel far to have a great time.  London has lots to offer for a fabulous break.

This sprawling city offers lots of sights and  history around every corner,  museums galore, and with a vast selection of restaurants and cuisines, London culture is as diverse as its population.

 

Head to the East End, home of Cockney rhyming slang, Sunday markets and an ever-expanding number of ecclectic bars and pubs.

Enjoy the West End for theatre, comedy, jazz and more; stay central for the top restaurants, or galleries and museums.

London is a city that is constantly evolving - always something new to see or do. Just let us know what that is and we'll be happy to organise it for you!

Venice

Gondolas.jpeg

Venice is like one big filmset - Bond, Indiana Jones, The Italian Job....

There are 900 palaces, 105 churches, 2000 hotels and countless restaurants, cafes and bars all reached by 177 canals. Venice is probably the most photographed city in the world, understandably so.

The streets and alleys are narrow, but it is small enough for you to walk the city or if you prefer you can take a vaporetta (water taxi) or jump on the water buses. 

 

Head for  Piazza San Marco where you can watch the world go by, see the Bridge of Sighs and the Rialto Bridge and make sure you take a trip in a Gondola.

For a real treat - why not go on the Orient Express!

 

Bellissima!

Barcelona

The perfect city - with added beach!

With a historic Gothic old town to wander and the wonders of Gaudi architecture to marvel at, Barcelona is the perfect city choice for a weekend destination.

Make sure you visit the remarkable unfinished Sagrada Familia and Park Guell to see Gaudi architecture that will blow your mind.

Pick up the buzz of the city by strolling along Las Ramblas, one of the longest and most famous streets in Europe, where you will also find La Boquería, the most famous traditional market in the city, where you can taste 100% authentic local food.

Don't forget to pack your bikini as you can also head to the beautiful beach to soak up some sun.

Then top off your day with a sundowner cocktail  at one of the many rooftop bars followed by a perfect paella or a feast of local tapas at a beachside restaurant or pavement cafe.

Amsterdam

Another city famous for its canals - a cruise is a must do activity.  Look out for the elegant houses built by 17th century wealthy merchants that line the canals.

Then there is the art - see the Dutch Masters on display at the Rijksmuseum and learn more about the man who cut off his own ear at the Van Gogh museum.  Don't forget to visit the Ann Frank house used as a safe house during WWII.

Hire a bike and follow one of the sightseeing bike trails - but leave your bike at home if you plan to visit one of the many  legal coffee shops famous for selling cannabis along with your coffee.

Yo might also like to sample a warm 'Stroopwafel" - a famous Dutch sweet treat filled with yummy syrup.

Budapest

Spanning the River Danube, Budapest is a vibrant city filled with breathtaking buildings

and many museums celebrating its rich heritage.  

Check out the Ruin Bars in the abandoned buildings of the jewish quarter - bars full of art, personality and quirky furniture - a totally bohemian experience.

Try one of the renowned thermal baths - the city has 120 hot springs.  The Szechenyil Bath is the largest and is open all year round. 

 

Look out for the street art in District VII and make time to see the shoes in front of the Parliament building - the poignant reminder of the thousands of people who lost their lives during WWII.
