¿What is a City Break??
The City Break consists of short-term trips of travellers who take advantage of holidays or weekends to make a break and visit a city. This type of tourism has been increasing in recent years thanks to the boom in cheap flights and the ease of the internet.
What formerly consisted of hundreds of kilometres and nights spent outside the final destination, today may mean a 3 hours flight from London to Malaga for € 50. That is why the City Breaks have lengthened in time and space, being able to travel beyond the borders of each country and spend more time in destination.
