Some of our favourite city breaks to check out:

- Bangkok: Bangkok is a kaleidoscope of colour and culture unlike no other: towering skyscrapers hide gilded temples and exotic gardens, while some of the tastiest food is sold from stalls tucked down quiet alleys off bustling high streets. This is certainly a city for the bucket list.
- Barcelona: For those who want sun and city in equal measure, the Spanish capital is the ideal city break for sun-seekers and foodies. Check out our guide to Barcelona’s restaurants and bars on The Escapist here.
- Florence: Home to some of the finest Renaissance art around, culture-lovers have been flocking to this Tuscan gem for decades. Marvel at the Duomo cathedral and Michelangelo’s masterpiece The David between scoops of gelato and slices of stone-baked pizzas. Bellissimo!
- Lisbon: Grit and glamour blend seamlessly in the picturesque Portuguese capital, not to mention free-flowing sangria and vinho verde (green wine - and yes, you must try it). Plan your trip with the help of our guide to Lisbon in The Escapist here.
- Marrakech: Lose yourself - figuratively and literally - in the dizzying sights and sounds of Marakech’s Medina, where the labyrinthine-esque streets are lined with vibrant market stalls and colourful tapestries. Beyond those powder-pink streets, the mish-mash of architecture tells the story of the city’s ever-changing culture and people.
- New York City: The avenues and boulevards of the Big Apple are one plane ride away: this concrete jungle packs one serious punch with its iconic buildings, bustling coffee shops and massive green expanse in the form of Central Park.
