City break like Barcelona or Nice

15 replies

I am looking for suggestions for a city break. We really liked Barcelona and Nice/Monaco as you are coastal to chill out but within a bus journey or a few stops on the train to the city.

Can anyone suggest anywhere that may suit and give the city/coastal break we would like?

I pressed the wrong button.

We've done Palma which was beautiful.

Loved Lyon but not coastal. Pisa? Bordeaux?

This is in the UK travel section, so do you want a weekend break like Barcelona without leaving the UK?

Brighton?

No, sorry about that. On the wrong board.

The beach in Valencia is OK but it's a bit out of the main city area and there's not much going on around there. The city itself is lovely though.
Lisbon has everything you could possibly want from a city imo.
