European city break bookings increase at Easter reveals


Online travel agency, has revealed the most popular European city break destinations for couples and families alike during the Easter period.

  1. Venice
  2. Amsterdam
  3. Prague
  4. New York
  5. Barcelona
  6. Nice
  7. Rome



City breaks to Rome and Venice at Easter in 2010 are particularly popular with couples enjoying romantic weekends away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and making the most of the long Easter weekend.


Families tend to city break in New York during the Easter period as culture, fashion and milder spring weather enhances the appeal for a longer New York city break where there is something to suit everyone, whether it’s shopping in the famous boutiques or taking a trip around Madison Square Gardens and even a visit to the Empire State Building.


City breaks to Barcelona during the Easter period are also popular with families as the city break experience is combined with culture, architecture and a beach holiday. Spain is popular with British holidaymakers and is the number one searched for destination in Europe by Brits.


Group city break holidays to Amsterdam and Prague are more popular than couples visiting the European city break destinations, popular trips for group city breaks can be tailor made at CityBreaks-Direct.


An Easter weekend city break to Nice is a popular destination for many UK couples as the mineral spas are a great attraction for a romantic weekend away for two.
