Top 5 Destinations for your Easter Break
If you’re wondering where to go for that long Easter weekend, how about four days in Paris, Rome, or Berlin? Here are the best destinations for this year’s Easter Break.
Does Barcelona really need an introduction? Barcelona is probably Spain’s most interesting city break destination. The Sagrada Familia, Gaudi’s most iconic architecture example is a reason to visit Barcelona in itself. But the colourful Mercado de la Boqueria, Barceloneta beach, the Museum of Modern Art (MACBA) are all great reasons to spend Easter in Barcelona. Check out this Barcelona city guide to get inspired!
With its industrial architecture (imagine abandoned warehouses, factory buildings turned lofts, open air galleries) and one of the best nightlife options in Europe, Berlin is always a good idea. Don’t miss the Brandenburg Gate, the Berlin Wall and the East Side Gallery. While you are at it, don’t forget to try a currywurst.

Rome is in many ways the ultimate city break destination especially during religious festivities. Not only you’ll have the chance to see the Easter mass being told by the one and only Pope Francis, but you will also be right at the centre of the ancient Roman empire. Don’t forget to eat pizza, carciofi fritti and the true carbonara pasta while you are in town. Oh! Cacio and pepe is a must-try too!

Well, ever heard of the Eiffel Tower? The Champs-Elysées? The Louvre? Well, it’s all in Paris. But if you don’t fancy the crowded places and bus tours, you can also head to the backstreets to discover the real Paris. And if you are a fan of Oscar Wilde and/or Édith Piaf, you might pleased to know that you can find them at the Père Lachaise Cemetery. And if you are thinking about making Paris your home, don’t miss out on our complete guide to moving to Paris.
I could not include my beloved Lisbon to this guide. The easy-going capital of Portugal is the perfect destination at any time of the year. But during Easter, Lisbon really springs in all its beauty. And I bet that after this hectic and scary moment, what we’ll all really need is a slow-down break in a laid-back city. While you are there, don’t miss a visit to the Mercado da Ribeira’s food hall where you must (yeah, must!) try some pasteis de nata, after some fish and wine. If you feel like a visit to the ocean, jump on a train to Cascais or Estoril, where the beaches will be a balm for your soul. If you are looking for some interesting literature ideas and prepare yourself for a trip to Lisbon, don’t miss my 5 books about Lisbon you must read in 2020 article.
