Need a change of pace? Looking for a little adventure? Are you too busy for a ‘real’ holiday? How about an urban weekend getaway?
City trips for a long weekend can be refreshing, adventuresome and efficient for the individual who really needs a change of pace and cannot afford the time away from work. Fly to Paris to visit the Louvre. Fly to Rome for a walk through the Sistine Chapel. Take the train down to London for a weekend of theatre and visiting old friends or family. Any of these choices will help you recharge your batteries with a minimum of travel time to your destination.
An urban weekend can be a great way to see the world in bite-sized pieces. Fly, or take the train, after work on Friday and return home late on Sunday. Two whole days in the city of your choice will be your reward.
Eating Real Italian Food
Let’s say that you enjoy Italian cooking. How would it be to eat in an Italian restaurant in Rome instead of choosing from the usual assortment of pizzas at the Italian restaurant down the road? Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci airport is only 16 miles south-west of Rome. An Alitalia flight (a round trip connecting through Milan) can cost as little as £285. There are any number of excellent hotels in Rome that are close to interesting sites and restaurants. Take a quick and refreshing weekend trip to the Eternal City to renew your spirits and be back at work on Monday.
Speaking French for the Weekend
Practising your French at the bistro near your left bank hotel could be a nice way to break up a dreary work routine. A stroll along the Seine to the Louvre might be just the thing to remind you that there’s more to life than working a ‘nine to five’ job. Paris-Orly airport is only 8 miles south of Paris, and round-trip flights typically cost around £135.
A Getaway Closer to Home
A weekend getaway in the heart of London can be just the experience to remind a couple why they fell in love. Leave the children with mum and dad, take a train to Victoria Station, and hail a taxi to any of a number of London hotels. Let your cares disappear and renewed love blossom in a 48-hour urban escape.
