If you’ve been working hard recently, then spring is the perfect time to take a short break, and today, we’ve outlined some our most popular city destinations to help inspire you. We love city breaks, as it usually only takes a couple of days to take in the culture and see all the local sights. Here is our list of the most popular cities we fly to, and why we love each and every one.
10. Amsterdam, Netherlands
First on our list is the popular city breaks hot spot of Amsterdam. Full of culture and atmosphere, Amsterdam is a quaint little city that you just have to visit at some point in your life. The canals and bikes create an elegant, local feeling in the capital making it a truly unique city.
09. Edinburgh, Scotland
Edinburgh is a medieval town full of castles and history. The city has a rich culture of theatre, and if you’re looking to experience this side of Edinburgh, head there in August for the world’s largest arts festival – The Fringe.
08. Berlin, Germany
There are plenty of historic sites in Berlin such as the Berlin wall and Reichstag building but Berlin also has a unique, hip culture when it comes to bars, clubs and of course beer – especially from the microbrewery’s. There is also plenty of street art and the rich urban culture has to be experienced if you want to take in all of Berlin.
07. Rome, Italy
Rome is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, and for good reason. The city is crammed full with some of the most famous monuments in the world. Think the Colosseum, Vatican and the 2,000-year-old Pantheon. The good news is that despite the amount to see, it is possible to cram it all into a short weekend trip, and you’ll even get time to experience the fantastic dinning and buzzing night life.
06 – Las Vegas, United States of America
The party capital of the world – We all know what you should expect in Vegas, and there’s no better way to arrive than by private jet. Experience the none stop clubbing, enormous themed casinos and some great American cuisine. You’ll even get a chance to see replicas of other famous landmarks from around the world such as the Eiffel Tower, Egyptian Pyramids and Statue of Liberty.
05 – Marrakech, Morocco
There is plenty of culture in Morocco, and Marrakech is a perfect place to experience all of it. Whether you want to taste the authentic Moroccan cuisine, explore the enormous souk (the largest market in morocco) or take a trip to the desert, Marrakech has it all. They’ll also be time for a relaxing trip to the Hammam, or to enjoy a drink on the charming rooftops.
04 – Paris, France
As the most popular tourist destination in the world, there is no surprise that Paris has made it onto our list. With some beautiful attractions such as Notre Dame, Arc de Triomphe and of course the Eiffel Tower you’ll wont get bored of tourist attractions. The city also has one of the largest collections of fine art galleries such as the Louvre. But why we really love Paris is the French culture. Shopping and eating off of the main street is a delight, and when you learn to blend in with the locals instead of the tourists, you can see why Paris is raved about by so many.
03 – Dubai, UAE
As a city that in the last 20 years has sprung up out of the ground, it’s safe to say that Dubai doesn’t have that much history. But it certainly makes up for that with the long list of activities and things to do whilst there. Whether you want skiing, shopping, theme parks or architecture, Dubai has world record holding titles in all categories. There is also year round sun so you can enjoy some of their beaches or go on an action packed adventure of the desert dunes.
02 – Barcelona, Spain
Golden beaches, beautiful architecture and a buzzing night life. What’s not to love about Barcelona. On your trip, make sure you visit the large market of La Rambla and check out Gaudi’s several masterpiece buildings spread across the city like the Casa Vicens, La Pedrea, Parc Güell and of course La Sagrada Familia. It’s also worth visiting some of the cathedrals in the gothic corner and of course sampling as much of the local Tapas and Wine as you can muster.
01 – New York City, United States of America
Number one on our list is the big apple. The city of cities. Although it may be a squeeze to fit in everything this city has to offer in one visit, we like a challenge! With world class galleries, architecture and dining, New York will leave you wanting a bit more every time you visit. You must check out Central Park during your visit and spend a few minutes pondering over the contrast between nature and skyscrapers. Check out the Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island and enjoy a show on Broadway. The really amazing thing about New York City is the culture and atmosphere that it lets off. Being in Times Square, Wall Street or in Central Park feels like you are part of a movie, an experience that can’t be missed.
