Why choose a city break in Europe?

A jumble of lively piazzas and rambling waterways, fairytale spires and steel-and-glass towers, bustling markets and shiny malls, European city breaks are utterly captivating. Culture, art, food, music, sightseeing… even a short weekend break in Europe can take in a bit of it all.

The cobbled streets and ancient architecture of the cities of Eastern Europe, from Budapest to Warsaw, are a display cabinet of Europe at its grandest - think the neo-Gothic Hungarian Parliament Building and Poland's colourful city squares. To the west, cosmopolitan metropolises such as Berlin and London lead the way with world-class nightlife, museums and galleries, while Oslo and Copenhagen in the north showcase cutting edge design and culture.

Art lovers flock to the Paris Louvre to see the Mona Lisa and Milan for The Last Supper, but European museums and art galleries don't stop at the obvious. Discover some of the world's most beloved treasures such as Rembrandt's portraits in Amsterdam, Picasso's Guernica in Madrid or Michelangelo's David in Florence.

Fancy footwork comes in handy during some short breaks in Europe. Visit the Spanish cities Seville or Jerez, where the fiery flamenco fans flames of passion. Learn how to dance like the Greeks in Athens, book tickets to the ballet in Russia or - for something completely different - put on those dancing shoes and head for the nightclubs of Berlin.
