European city breaks - A cultural feast
Short breaks in Europe take you to the world’s most celebrated and most romantic cities and feature legendary sights like the Coliseum in Rome and the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The Gothic splendour of Prague, the Renaissance glories of Venice and the fantastic museums and galleries in dynamic cities like Berlin and Barcelona make European city breaks a feast of art, architecture and culture. Short breaks in Europe reflect the incredible cultural diversity of the continent. European city breaks whisk you to authentic tapas bars in Seville, trendy designer stores in Milan, traditional pubs in Dublin or the amazing late-night culture of Madrid. Immensely popular Eastern European city breaks in Prague and Budapest have added even greater variety to the cultural mix.
