EVERY CITY HAS A PERSONALITY
Isn’t it fascinating how no two cities are the same – think how different Dublin and Cork are, for example, or Boston and New York and it’s hard to believe Paris and Marseille are in the same country! And the obvious cities are not always the stars; give me Madrid over Barcelona any day, Naples over Rome.
Discover the people as well as the place
A city break is your invitation to explore. It’s about discovery, often on foot; getting under the skin of the city through the quirky little places you discover or the insights into the culture you get from watching people queue for a bus. Of course there are the ‘must-dos’, the castles, cathedrals, towers and famous squares but often the most memorable thing about a city break is watching real people going about their daily lives in a place very different to where you live yours.
Freedom Travel has access to some amazing rates for accommodation and transport which means amazing value for you, so call us today and get ready to explore.
MYTHS ABOUT CITY BREAKS:
CITY BREAKS CAN’T BE ANY LONGER THAN 3 NIGHTS
If you fancy a longer holiday, why not combine city breaks to stretch it out; Seville and Cordoba; Munich and Salzburg; or take time to explore the areas close to the cities, often overlooked by tourists.
CITY BREAKS ARE ONLY FOR COUPLES
Some destinations are perfect for families; go to an amusement park, visit the circus. Copenhagen in the run-up to Christmas has a magical family-friendly attraction in the Tivoli Gardens where you can ice-skate and browse the exquisite Christmas market. City breaks can be ideal for get-togethers or reunions – New York, for example, offers something for everyone, whatever their age. Let’s face it, most women already know that a city break with the girls is the only thing that keeps them going from one end of the year to the next!
