What cheap city breaks are available?
City breaks can be eminently affordable, especially when you book them with BA Holidays, your trusted tour operator of choice. Book your flight and hotel combined and prepare to save on your city break budget, leaving you more money to spend in your chosen destination. You can’t go far wrong with eastern Europe, with famously affordable cities such as Krakow, Prague and Budapest, especially outside of the Euro zone where your money will likely stretch a tad further. Lisbon and Porto are equally good value, where you can rely on a Mediterranean climate and affordable eats aplenty.
What are the best city breaks in Europe?
You really are spoilt for choice when it comes to ideal city break destinations in Europe. Whether you want to wander the breezy boulevards of Paris, soak up the cafe culture of Amsterdam or score some Scandi swag in Stockholm, you should be able to find the perfect city break for you. Immerse yourself in ancient history in Rome or Athens, sample the freshest orange juice in Seville, or lounge around the Bavarian beer gardens of Munich – the possibilities are truly limitless.
What to look for in your ideal city break destination?
So what makes for an irresistible city break destination? This depends greatly on the type of traveller you are. Are you a fan of street food, striking architecture and photography? Maybe you’re more drawn towards inspiring museums and galleries or simply ticking off the prime tourist sights. Perhaps you like to connect with locals and seek out an authentic slice of life. We recommend seeing as much of a city on foot as possible and many cities also offer a free local greeter service, which can be a great way to orient yourself while meeting some friendly locals. Handy apps like Citymapper, TripCase and Roadtrippers can also be useful for the digitally inclined. There are always countless different ways to explore any one city and different lenses through which to view them. The only limits are your budget and your imagination.
