    A European city break bucket list

    When it comes to city breaks, Europe knows exactly what to offer. Striking cities brilliantly mixing the old with the new? Stunning coastal places combining the sophistication of a city getaway with the sublime comforts of a beach escape? Yes and yes, again! Quickly add all of the below to your ultimate European city break bucket list and start checking them off!



    Let’s begin with the obvious one. Only a short train (or plain) journey away, Paris is easily the first one to tick off your city break bucket list! Boasting such delights as colourful macarons, stunning museums and world-renowned landmarks, this one is a delicious treat to indulge in. Start your morning with a buttery croissant, visit Shakespeare & Co and snap an insta-worthy picture from Trocadero…A Paris city break will set the bar pretty high…




    …and then you can move on to Amsterdam. Another gorgeous European city based around a river, this one is absolutely defined by its canals. Hiring a bike and cycling all over the place will make you feel like a local, while visiting the Heineken Experience or the Van Gogh museum can satisfy all your touristy needs. Both of them a must, followed by a chill out session at a local café.




    Why not go a bit more south for your next city break holiday? Italy immediately springs to mind. An escape to the ancient city of Rome can be the star of your travel bucket list. Mostly sunny, rather glorious and filled with utter deliciousness. See those Roman remains everyone talks about, grab some world-class gelato and hey presto! You’ve got yourself a Rome holiday to remember (extra pasta is required).




    Now for the cities that offer both outstanding historical landmarks and sun-kissed beaches…look no further than Barcelona. Boasting fantastic weather and some pretty awesome city beaches, this is so much more than your regular city break! It is here where you can admire the architectural beauty of Sagrada Familia, follow up with cocktails by the sea and finish it all off with some gorgeous tapas…




    A Prague city break should not be neglected from your travel bucket list.  A European capital of many charms, Prague has picturesque little streets filled with history and lively restaurants bursting in flavour. To top it off, let’s not forget it also prides itself in having some of the best beer in Europe. As gorgeous as it is interesting, Prague will keep you satisfied all through your stay…




    Why go to the German capital? Mixing cosmopolitan allure with historical charms, Berlin is full of surprises at every turn. Offering a great night scene for the party animals among you, while also boasting a wealth of historic attractions, Berlin is one of the most exciting cities around. From the city’s Museum Island to the Berlin Wall Memorial, there is something to see and do at every turn.




    When it comes to mixing business with pleasure, Brussels is the one that has perfected this art. Old European streets hide new EU buildings, delicious chocolate makes way for top quality beer – a place like this only needs a few short days to charm you! Thus making a Brussels city break the unlikely hero on this list…




    Back to the beach it is: Dubrovnik might not spring to mind when thinking of European city breaks but it absolutely should. This old city based on Croatia’s stunning Adriatic coast is a thing of undisputed beauty. Shimmering waters, old fortresses and ancient city walls – this gem ticks off all the holiday boxes. Not to mention it’s a must for every real Game of Thrones fan…
