Best Places to Visit for Short Breaks in Europe

Europe is filled with fascinating cities and if you want a short break, they are perfect to fill a few days. The problem you have is deciding where to go!

Positano and Rome

The Amalfi coast is home to Positano and it is widely considered to be too good to be believed. Most visitors who spend time here will want to return. If you combine this with a trip to Italy’s capital city then you will definitely be connecting with the history and culture of this beautiful country.

Lisbon and Lagos

Portugal is another popular destination, particularly with those who want to soak up the sun and the capital city of Lisbon is known for the fantastic restaurants, amazing shops and stunning architecture. Lagos is around 300km from the capital but it is located on the Algarve, so gives you the opportunity to relax on a beach for a while.

Paris and London

If you want your short break to take in more than one country then the English and French capital cities are ideal. Paris is filled with the romantic ambiance that you would expect, from the cafes to the spectacular monuments such as the Eiffel Tower. London is only a train ride away from Paris these days and offers a vibrant culture as well as wonderful theatres.

Copenhagen and Stockholm

Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark and this is a brightly coloured city that is lively and fun. The restaurants offer some of the best healthy food in Europe and there are plenty of shops for you to pick up a bargain or two while you are here. Head over then to the Swedish capital of Stockholm, which is very similar to Copenhagen with its healthy eateries and fine architecture. The Gamla Stan is the Old Town area of the city and this is a must for those who want to see what life used to be like in this city.
