When you fancy getting away from it all but don’t have the time to relax on a beach for a whole week a quick city break is the perfect solution. Whether you’re traveling with family, a loved one, friends or alone, here are some of the top cities to visit this year.

 

Dubrovnik

One of the world’s most incredible destinations and a UNESCO world heritage site, this Croatian city is currently one of the hottest destinations to visit.

Although it was historically a center of trade, Dubrovnik is now much more about the leisure. Five-star luxury hotels, fantastic cuisine and beautiful scenery are just a handful of reasons that it has everyone – including some famous celebrities – flocking to it.

 

Venice

This list of top city breaks has a clear winner: Italy. Venice is just the first Italian city that has proven to be a popular stop with tourists.

It’s the perfect place for a romantic getaway thanks to the wonderful combination of history and art. The city is packed with romance and elegance everywhere you look, from the canals to the spectacular Renaissance buildings.

 

Barcelona

Let’s take a quick break away from Italy, to explore the Spanish city of Barcelona – perhaps most famous for football. While Messi might be the first thing that springs to mind, this is a city with a lot more to offer than sport. It’s a thriving cosmopolitan area that is close enough to the coast to offer a great beach holiday too.

Enjoy the Spanish cuisine, explore the history of Barcelona and spend a day relaxing on its golden sands.

 

Rome

Next up is the Italian capital – one of few places where you can indulge in a little history as well as shopping! Packed with ancient architecture and various attractions, Rome is definitely a must-visit city for anyone interested in European history.

The city has managed to combine its unique past with everything that a modern city needs – including shops – so you don’t have to worry about being too far from creature comforts either.

 

Nice

Last, but by no means least, is the capital of the Cote d’Azur, Nice. Most people head straight to Paris when looking for a French city break, but this city is perfect for a weekend away.

Whether you want to take a relaxing walk along the Promenade des Anglais or soak up the atmosphere in one of the restaurants in the Old Town, this quaint city is a wonderful place to escape from daily life.

Whichever city takes your fancy, make sure you search for low cost flights to get you there so you can maximize your spending money!
