The Top 10 Destinations For A City Break In Europe

Europe's a diverse place, with a huge choice of holiday destinations. So to help you narrow down your options, here are 10 cities to consider.

    A clash of beautiful Moorish architecture and modern cultural dynamism makes Seville is hard to ignore. The Alcazar, the Cathedral, and the Giralda tower are outstanding.

    You don't have to be a fashionista to love Milan. With its endless streets of boutiques and charming neighbourhoods like Navigli, Italy's northern metropolis always scores highly.

  • 3. Munich

    Petrolheads will adore the massive BMW Museum, beer connoisseurs flock to local beer halls, while footie fans can catch a Bayern match in Germany's second city.

  • 4. Marseille

    Exceptional modern architecture plus food with Provencal and North African influences makes Marseille a rewarding place to visit.

  • 5. Barcelona

    Whether you're intrigued by Gaudi's outlandish buildings, or you want to be mesmerised by Leo Messi and friends, the Catalan capital has endless appeal.

  • 6. Copenhagen

    Utterly charming, friendly, and walkable, Denmark's capital mixes enchanting amusement parks with captivating districts from Nyhavn to Christiania.

  • 7. Paris

    Achingly romantic (and perfect for a Valentine's surprise), Paris has an inexhaustible storehouse of attractions, from the Eiffel Tower to the Louvre.

  • 8. Lisbon

    The Baroque churches​ are breathtaking, the seafood-based cuisine is always appetising, and Lisbon's Bairro Alto always has a party in store.

  • 9. Bruges

    One of the great brewing cities, Bruges has enchanting medieval squares, lively markets, and masterpieces aplenty at the Groeninge Museum​.

  • 10. Venice

    Venice is a world apart. Drift down canals, cross the Rialto bridge, take snaps outside San Marco Cathedral, and soak up the romance.
