Take a city

Arrive excited, uncertain. Roll your tongue around its accents. Stare at its people, rushing to places you've never been. Poke around its markets, ordering all the wrong things with all the wrong words. Explore tiny streets and huge squares, savour ancient flavours new to you, gaze at art found nowhere else on earth, seek out bohemian bars, stay out late, get lost, get found, and return home with your heart racing and your head buzzing for more.

Now that's what you call a city break. Take a city - we've got 15 of the most exhilarating in the world to choose from.
