City breaks

Who doesn't love a city break? Inexpensive and accessible enough to allow most of us to fit around our annual holiday plans, these quick breaks transports us into the heart of another culture. Europe is bursting with city break destinations. Italy alone boasts some of the most popular city break destinations in the world. With Europe on our doorstep and just an hour or two away by plane and train, we are spoilt for choice. Choose from classic city destinations such as Paris, Rome, Milan, Florence, Venice, Barcelona, Madrid, and Nice. For something a little different, try Scandinavia and Eastern Europe with cities such as Copenhagen, Stockholm, Reykjavik, Krakow and Prague.

For a more exotic city break, head to Marrakech or the glittering and glamourous Dubai - one of the most luxurious places in the world. This cosmopolitan city is one of the fastest-growing cities in the world, where world-class shopping, luxurious hotels, Eastern-influenced food and traditional souks make it the ideal place to stay. An increasingly popular alternative is nearby Abu Dhabi.

Enjoy an American city break in New YorkLas Vegas, San Francisco or Los Angeles. Experience the diverse cultures of New York City and its overpowering energy - you will want to explore every avenue. Or stay in a themed hotel in the glittering oasis of Las Vegas. Make the most of the gambling tables to the white-knuckle rides in this casino in the desert. San Francisco and LA have long been global cultural hubs and are must-see destinations.

The Scoop: Copenhagen

Denmark and its capital hold the dubious honour of being touted as the happiest places on the planet. A 3-night break is a perfect amount of time to get to grips with the city and work out whether you agree. When to go? Pretty much any time from sunny, breezy spring through to hygge-inducing autumn and twinkly, tasteful Christmas. The largest crowds and the best festivals are in July and August, but this also brings the highest costs/rates. Temperatures rarely reach the mid-20s and so the...
