If you’re dreaming of your holidays in 2015, here are our top five must-sees for a perfect short break, from exotic Istanbul and Marrakech to the many gems of Italy- and of course, we have to mention New York...
Otherworldly Turkey is an ideal destination for a short break. Head to Istanbul to immerse yourself in temples, incense and boutiques- the famous Grand Bazaar is the place to go, where you can buy anything and everything from lanterns to spices. Our luxury Istanbul shopping break gives you plenty of time to explore the Grand Bazaar, designer boutiques and vintage stores, and you can also enjoy a leisurely cruise along the Bosphorus river. Or luxury city break takes in the spectacular mosques and palaces alongside browsing for unique souvenirs.
Italy, a perennial holiday and honeymoon favourite, has an embarrassment of riches, from the beautiful canals of Venice to the incredible architecture and artistic masterpieces of Florence and the historic landmarks of Rome. Explore the delights of one of the world's most beautiful cities or, for something a little different, make the most of stunning Tuscany on our luxury foodie weekend, where you can go truffle hunting and sample some of Italy's finest wines in sun-kissed Tuscan vineyards.
This iconic city deserves its worldwide fame. From Central Park to the Empire State Building and the impressive storefronts of Fifth Avenue (the city is also home to Macy’s, the largest department store in the world), New York is like one big movie set. As well as taking in the incredible sights and skyscrapers, head indoors to find everything from designer labels to bargains on our boutique shopping holiday.
Morocco conjures up images of deserts and camels, while the bustling, colourful city of Marrakech is known for its mosques and ancient riads decorated with intricate mosaics, and the sweet sellers and snake charmers on the main square, Jemaa El Fna- but one of its main draws is the souks. An incredible shopping mecca, these characterful alleyways and squares are bursting with tempting wares from terracotta pots to hand-woven scarves. Shop ‘til you drop then relax in a traditional riad on this quintessential Moroccan holiday.
The beautiful and romantic city of Prague, the Czech Republic's capital, is steeped in history and elegance, from its legendary castle to its opulent hotels and cafes. We recommend The Alchymist for pure luxury and traditional Czech decadence- or head to Chateau Mcely just outside Prague for a pure fairytale experience- live like royalty in this magnificent castle, surrounded by a forest steeped in myths and legends.
