Don’t fancy spending a week or two further afield? Well, city breaks are wonderful for a short weekend away. Whether you want to experience a quick European break or perhaps head to somewhere slightly further away from home, city breaks are great in order to experience a different culture and atmosphere. Explore historical landmarks in Rome, get the best of both worlds at the beach and in the city in Barcelona or go crazy for high street shopping in New York. Whichever city you choose to visit, here is how to have the perfect city break.
Booking your city break
First and foremost, you need to decide where you would like to go for your city break. At loveholidays we have a wide range of city breaks from Reykjavik and Venice to Amsterdam and Dubrovnik. Using our smart search engine, you can find a city break which works best for you in terms of budget, flight dates and hotel star rating. You couldn’t be happier with the cheap deals on our city break flights and hotels.
Getting around the city
Wherever you choose to spend your city break, getting around the city is the next big step. Luckily, in this digital age, it’s not as hard as some may think. With apps like citymapper, you can find the easiest route to get somewhere, even if everything is in a foreign language. Taking the local transport is the best and cheapest way to get around. Not only, will it get you to all the major sights and attractions around the city, but it also gives you the experience of navigating around a different city and getting to know it even more during your stay. Trust us, you’ll be an expert when it comes to travel by the end of your trip.
Build an itinerary
Depending on the reasons for your city break, its best to get straight to it once you arrive. With only a few days to enjoy the city, build an itinerary for yourself so you’re able to do and see everything you want to during your stay. Make a list of all the important sights you want to see and all the fun activities you would like to do, or perhaps there’s certain foods you’d like to try. Whatever it is, once you’ve listed the things you want to explore and split them up into an itinerary for each day, your city break will be organised and run smoothly.
Finally, you’re on your city break to enjoy yourself above all else. Explore the city, sample the delicious cuisine and experience the lively nightlife. Completely immerse yourself in the city you are visiting and remember to have fun!
