City Breaks

Easily accessible Cities well worth a visit

Rome - Angels and Demons is a great way to see Rome, having first refreshed your memory by watching the Ron Howard film of the Dan Brown book before you go. Sadly Tom Hanks will not be running around for you but the guide will bring the book and film to life. And please, do not confuse this with...

ROME walking guide and bus tour - It was not built in a day and you will not see everything in a day. My guess is you will never see my favourite church! Not that I am into churches but the one on September XII street near the Termini takes some beating. If you arrive on a cruise then you...

The Old Town of Copenhagen has a number of free walks, you just tip the guide. It is on the coastal islands of Zealand and Amager and linked to Malmo in southern Sweden by the Öresund Bridge. The historic center, contains Frederiksstaden, an 18th-century rococo district, it is all revealed in the walking tour. Our film below takes you on...

Jean is in Malaga, gateway to the Spanish beaches. We have 100℉, 40℃ heat! It is a city that many just pass through because of the airport or the port, but it has much to warrant a stay or a visit and it appears on many cruises, not least on a sail out to the Aegean as with Fred Olsen's...

Venice - a history of erotica and gambling? Venice was the centre of trade, but also of sin and gambling. At one time 12% of its population were in prostitution and the dens of iniquity were around every corner. There were places that women could visit too, and of the men on offer Casanova was perhaps the most famous. Now...

It is a commercial port with a modern terminal and one that is easy to explore from. It is straightforward to get the train to Pisa or Florence. Also, Cinque Terre is a very popular place to visit from...

The name probably comes from the old Dutch name for bridge, 'Brugga'. The first fortifications were built after Julius Caesar's conquest of the Menapii in the first century BC, to protect the coastal area against pirates. However, due to it's important position there have been settlements in this area since the iron and bronze ages. It is worth the...
It is so easy to get away and find a cheap hotel or city break Out of school holidays, there are often mid-week deals to fly to Malaga, Barcelona or many other places like Rome. Time to grab a few days away. We used to fly somewhere every Sept and our favourite find was Sardinia - not Cagliari which is a port...

Doris Visits Tallinn in Estonia on a Baltic Cruise There are likely to be six or so ships at the popular port in Tallinn, it is a busy port! Tallinn is a gem of the Baltics. Britannia B818 for June 2018 is already pretty sold out. There is also Azura A815 for June 9th 2018 and Arcadia J808 on 8th July...
