The Easter break offers the perfect opportunity to get away from it all and experience something new. Whether it’s a week in a warmer climate, an action-packed holiday to get your heart pumping, or a cultural city break you’re looking for, this is the time to plan your perfect trip. Here are five superb destinations, each with their own unique perks and special offerings, to spark your imagination.

Marrakech, Morocco

The bustling city of Marrakech, located in the west of Morocco, has everything you could want from your Easter break. African and Middle-Eastern influences blend together to create a truly unique place. As you walk through the labyrinth of alleyways that weave through the city, you’ll discover colourful bazaars and small souks, selling local handmade goods and traditional spices.

The main square in Marrakech’s old town, Jemaa el-Fnaa, is at the heart of the city and the action, with its popular restaurants, huge open market, and energetic street performers. Luxury accommodation is very affordable in Marrakech, especially during the off-season, so you can enjoy a spacious room in a beautifully-decorated riad – with a pool – without breaking the bank.

Bodrum, Turkey

Beautiful beaches and azure waters are the main highlight of this laid-back port city. For a holiday built around relaxation and recuperation, book an all-inclusive stay at one of the many luxury resorts available on

When you’re ready to get to know Bodrum, you can soak up its history with a day of sightseeing. First, make your way from the Castle of Saint Peter, with its spectacular views over the peninsula, then head to the ancient ruins of Bodrum’s Hellenistic amphitheatre. Spend the afternoon admiring the antique city of Pedasa, built into a hillside overlooking the city – but don’t forget to wear your comfy shoes, as it’s a bit of a trek to the top!

There are plenty of museums and galleries for a daily dose of culture. You’ll also find a great selection of quality restaurants in Bodrum, serving Mediterranean, Turkish and European cuisine that will make your mouth water.

Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona is one of the best-loved holiday destinations for a short and sweet city break, and it’s easy to see why. The Catalonian city boasts world-renowned examples of art nouveau architecture, most notably Gaudi’s La Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell – both of which absolutely must be included on your trip itinerary.

Barcelona is also known for its tapas bars, where you can pick and choose from a wide range of fresh seafood, more-ish cheeses, and spicy meat dishes. Of course, no Spanish feast would be complete without wine, and it’s fair to say the wine in this city is exceptional. To see where (and how) the magic happens, book in for a tour of one of the nearby wineries, where you’ll be able to taste a few and purchase your favourite.  


The landscape of Montenegro is diverse and breathtakingly beautiful. Located in the south of the Adriatic sea, it’s home to rugged mountains, sparkling lakes and sandy beaches. The best of nature is packed into this small country, offering visitors generous opportunities for the perfect Instagram shot, or simply a moment to breathe and take it all in. Explore the fortified city of Kotor, the old town of Budva with its bars, shops and restaurants, and the charming Ulcinj, with its attractive harbour and ancient square.

For adventurers and adrenaline junkies, Montenegro is a delight: rock climbing, hiking and kayaking are just some of the popular activities on offer. If you're looking for a workout, climb the highest peak in Montenegro to marvel at the majestic views from Mount Durmitor.

Rome, Italy

Rome is home to some of the world’s greatest antiquities, from the Colosseum to the Pantheon, and boasts a number of famous landmarks, including the iconic 18th-century Trevi Fountain, and the 16th-century St. Peter’s Basilica. Everywhere you go, you’ll see something spectacular.

There’s also plenty of time for fun, with shops, bars and restaurants wherever you turn. All the big players in the fashion world have a presence in Rome, and the streets of Via Condotti, Via Borgognona and Via Frattina are home to glamorous designer stores such as Prada and Versace. As in all Italian cities, food is a big deal. Grab a slice of pizza on the go, enjoy a gelato in one of Rome’s beautiful parks, or take your time to enjoy a leisurely meal at one Rome’s many fine-dining restaurants or traditional trattorias.

Time off is precious, and you deserve some time doing what you truly love this Easter. From Italy to Turkey, Spain to Morocco, there are so many places to spend a wonderful Easter break – now it’s up to you to decide in which direction you want to go. No doubt wherever you choose, you’ll have memories to treasure long after you leave.
