The Best City Breaks With easyJet

How about a romantic weekend break to Venice, or a fun girls break to the beaches of Barcelona? Here are some of easyJet's best city break destinations (according to us, of course).

City Breaks To Prague

Prague is a fantastic city to explore and easyJet flies to Prague from London, Manchester, Bristol, Edinburgh and Belfast, so it's relatively easy to get to as well. Once in the city, Prague is best enjoyed on foot, with areas like the Old Town and Jewish Quarter, as well as the Prague Castle on the west side of the River Vltava.In the evening, make sure you head out and enjoy some of the local nightlife, including trying a typical Czech goulash.

City Breaks To Lisbon

Flying from Edinburgh, Bristol, Manchester and Gatwick with easyJet, city breaks to Lisbon are increasing in popularity. It's mix of modern and historic architecture, fantastic food and interesting museums, has meant more people are also moving to the city, so it's a clear favourite for many. If you've not been before, it's certainly somewhere to think about.

City Breaks To Venice

You can enjoy an easyJet city break to Venice from Liverpool, Glasgow and many other airports across the UK, plus it's Venice Marco Polo airport so there are a number of easy ways to get into the city once you arrive. There are two great ways to enjoy Venice. While a gondola ride is a romantic way to see the city, the water taxis are also a great way to get about, and cheaper too. And when you can't go by water, explore on foot. There are lots of hidden street and alleyways to get lost in, before you stumble upon one of many fantastic local Italian restaurants.

City Breaks To Amsterdam

An easy weekend break destination, Amsterdam offers something for everyone, whether you're visiting with a young family, as a couple, or on a cheap break with friends. Whether you're flying from Southend airport, Belfast, Bristol or one of seven other UK cities, it's both cheap and easy to get to. Staying in the heart of the city is ideal, but sometimes cheaper accommodation can be on the outskirts in places like Vondelpark or Oosterpark. And make sure you hit the streets by bicycle, like the locals do.

City Breaks To Rome

Ideal for both a quick short break or a long weekend, Rome will keep you busy. Flying into Rome's Fiumicino airport with easyJet, you can get into the city by train or coach quickly, and straight into your holiday. Staying in the heart of the city like Colosseo or Piazza Navona can push the cost of your hotel up, so look at staying in the suburbs like Piazza Bologna or EUR.

City Breaks To Barcelona

A short break to Barcelona with easyJet is the ideal short break in the sun. Combining the fantastic history, architecture and museums, with the beaches of Playa de la Barceloneta and Platja Bogatell, is ideal if you want to enjoy both a sun holiday and a city break. For those who like the outdoors, the Parc Natural de la Serra de Collserola is great for some woodland walks, while the more adventurous should head out on the train to Montserrat Monastery.

Year Round City Breaks

If you're unsure where to go at a certain time of year, here are a couple of our favourites, whether you're looking to get away on a winter city break or head somewhere warmer in summer on a short break in the sun. If it's a last minute city break, there are often some excellent late deals to be had, if you can be flexible on where you go. Some destinations to look at for the cheapest offers include Copenhagen, Bordeaux, Geneva and Seville.

January City Breaks

Take a break from the gloom of January and head somewhere a little sunnier to get some much needed vitamin C. While Spanish cities like Valencia and Gibraltar are good for the sunshine, Marrakech offers average temperatures of 19-20 degrees celcius and is an exciting city to explore. While you might want to stick to a hotel, there are plenty of fantastic, traditional riads to stay at.

December City Breaks

December is the perfect time to explore a Christmas market city break. Whether you're feeling like xmas is around the corner or not, there's nothing nicer that strolling amongst the markets with a hot cider or "gluhwein" in hand. Try the likes of Vienna, Berlin, Salzburg and Hamburg for some of the best Christmas markets in Europe.

April City Breaks

Seville is a beautiful destination to explore in April, when the peak summer heat hasn't quite reached, but the cool winter has passed. The city is over 2,000 years old so there's a lot of history here, and with Andalucia being the home of flamenco dancing, an evening at one of the local bars to enjoy this spanish dance over a glass of wine is a must.

July City Breaks

While much of Europe is heading to the beaches in the summer, there are some fantastic beach and city breaks to enjoy. For a popular destination, a beach city break in Barcelona from Newcastle, Liverpool and other UK cities is ideal, but if you've "been there, done that" try the likes of Alicante, Malaga, Palma, Valencia or Nice as a fun alternative, each offering their own unique take on the beach city break.

October City Breaks

Munich is, of course, well known for it's Oktoberfest, although part of this is actually in September, and is well worth the visit, although flight prices will be higher than normal. Otherwise, a beautiful city to visit in October is Verona. Famous as the home of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Verona is also an ideal city for enjoying a concert in its Roman amphitheater.

Onboard easyJet

Being low-cost, there aren't any freebies on board, however, there is a large selection of food and drink to buy. And while there isn't an easyJet brochure you can order or download, there is the easyJet Traveller magazine onboard, filled with loads of travel inspiration and articles to help you decide where to book your next trip.

Your standard cabin bag allowance with easyJet is once piece at 56x45x25cm (including the handle and wheels). It's worth noting that there's usually only space for up to 70 pieces of hand luggage in the overhead lockers, so some people may be asked to place their cabin bags under the seat in front of you, or to check it in to the hold.

Worldwide By easyJet

While you might think city breaks are restricted to easyJet's route network, the airline launched Worldwide By easyJet back in 2017, which allowed them to partner with a number of other airlines, including Norwegian, Virgin Atlantic and Emirates, to offer their customers flight options to lots more destinations worldwide.

As a result, customers can now enjoy a longhaul city break in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Hong Kong and New York by connecting with easyJet onto another airline. This is particularly beneficial if you want to enjoy a city break from Belfast, Edinburgh or Glasgow. To see what's on offer and book your easyJet city break, simply visit easyjet.com
