You may have visited some, all or none of them, but there’s no getting away from the fact that these cities are some of Europe’s top short break destinations. If you’ve been, you might not be averse to going again, as they have so much to offer the visitor. And if you haven’t been, then, they should be on your list!
Paris: This is the number one European city break destination – an enchanting city graced with splendid architecture, elegant boulevards, worldfamous landmarks and a rich ambience, which is paradise for incurable romantics. Whether it’s culture, fashion, atmosphere or fine food you seek, Paris has it all.
Amsterdam: Famous for its history and culture and infamous for its nightlife, Amsterdam is a city of fascinating contrasts. Art lovers are spoilt for choice with over 60 museums on offer including the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh museum and romantics will be enchanted by the canals, bridges and cobbled streets of its old quarter.
Palma: The capital of the Balearic island of Majorca is Palma and whilst many choose the island for their annual beach holiday, the city offers heritage, history, festivals, fiestas, shopping and so much more. Visit the immense Gothic cathedral, which peers majestically over the harbour, wander the winding, narrow streets of the old city and admire elegant facades and stop to enjoy tapas at a pavement café.
Brussels: Known as the administrative capital of the European Community, but it is also one of Europe’s most historic cities. At its heart is the Grand Palace, which is surrounded by a labyrinth of narrow streets where you’ll find numerous restaurants, cafes and shops – best buys include lace and its famous chocolate. Its reputation for cuisine is well known and don’t forget to try the beer!
Bruges: Known as the Venice of the North, Bruges is one of Europe’s best preserved Medieval cities full of elegant gabled buildings, quaint streets and alleyways, grand squares and narrow canals. Easy to explore on foot, but for a special occasion, take a horse and carriage or a cruise along the canals.
Nice: The elegant French Riviera city of Nice has long been a favourite destination for the British. Originally an Italian port, it has a reputation for being the playground of the rich and famous. A pavement café in one of the old town squares offers the perfect spot for people watchers or take in the sea air along the Promenade des Anglais.
