Riviera Travel’s new Taste Breaks culinary collection are launching this month to offer tailor-made short holidays to ten of Europe’s foodie cities; Berlin, Bologna, Copenhagen, Lisbon, Lyon, Bordeaux, Bilbao, Athens, Rome and Madrid.

With the introduction of Taste Breaks, UK travellers can experience flexible, comfortable and authentic European culinary city-breaks with the choice of any return flights from the UK, private airport transfers and the services of a passionate food-loving local host.

The long weekend packages are designed to provide plenty of freedom for customers to explore their chosen city and its food scene at their own pace, whilst making the most of the local host’s first-hand expertise.

The host leads an orientation walk to help navigate the city on the first morning ,as well as a special food-themed walk pointing out under-the-radar restaurants, buzzing food markets and historical sites.

Will Sarson, head of Taste Breaks at the company, said: “So many of us love weekend breaks and discovering new cities, but it’s frustrating when you end up eating mediocre food in tourist traps and leave with that feeling that you haven’t experienced the city as locals know it.

“By creating Taste Breaks, we want to help people have a more authentic trip and get to the heart of their destination. With our incredible local hosts, we know customers truly will see and taste the real city.”

Prices for a four-day itinerary including flights, breakfast accommodation, transfers, the services of a local host and a food-themed walk, start from £417 per person and departures run through to October.
