'To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the most pleasant sensations in the world. You are surrounded by adventure.' - Freya Stark

City breaks are a fantastic way of experiencing historic architecture, beautiful scenery and culture. Having the time to stroll through a city and enjoy the amazing food and drink adds to the whole adventure.

Whether you are travelling alone, with friends, family or that special very romantic trip away, we will find an experience you will treasure.

Case Study: Surprise short break 

We love organising city breaks and holidays for special occasions. Our client wanted to treat her partner to a surprise week away as a birthday treat. She wasn’t sure whether he would prefer a city break or beach holiday, so she set us the challenge of finding her a holiday destination that gave them the best of both worlds.

As she was open to ideas of which country to visit, we were able to get creative and find something that she wouldn’t usually have considered. The short break chosen was Dubrovnik, this city is in southern Croatia. It's known for its distinctive Old Town, encircled with massive stone walls completed in the 16th century. So, there was plenty to explore in the city as well as time to relax by the beach and hotel pool.

Thank you for arranging our recent holiday to Croatia. Everything ran smoothly from arriving at the airport, using the meet and greet parking service to coming home. I highly recommend Viva Vacations as Sophie researched what we wanted. The hotel was in an excellent location to explore Dubrovnik, which is a beautiful city. We had the best of both worlds being close to the beach and having a city break. Thank you, Sophie, for all your help in booking the holiday. As we have been so impressed with the service, we have booked a further two holidays for next year with Viva Vacations.
