5 memorable solo city breaks

To travel at your own pace, why not try going on a solo city break? You can explore these cities however you like, meet the locals, and immerse yourself in experiences you will remember for a lifetime.

In Vienna, drop your bags at the Das Triest and head out to experience the full intensity of this former imperial capital. Traces of Sissi, Mozart, Klimt and the biggest names in Austrian history can all be found here as you explore the city's many museums and palaces. Take the time to wander around the city centre to see the countless Baroque marvels.

Contemporary art lovers should make their way to New York. After a night at the trendy Wythe Hotel, you can spend your day admiring your favourite modern and contemporary painters. Whether you lean towards Warhol or Picasso, Chagall or Mondrian, the famous Guggenheim and MoMA have just what you need. You can spend hours looking at some of the fascinating artworks on display.

You dream of culinary discoveries? Go to Bologna where you can stay in the bed & breakfast in the Torre Prendiparte. From FICO World Eataly, a food park dedicated to epicurean delights, to Michelin-starred restaurants, you can give your taste buds the best that Italy has to offer. On your own, you can reap all the benefits of this intense experience and take the time to chat with local chefs.

A calm ambience reigns at the Kurayado Iroha hotel in Osaka, where you can enjoy a peace and quiet atmosphere. Then, relax in a zen garden before exploring the ancient city of Kōya-san.

On the other side of the globe, Houston is the perfect spot for a solo city break dedicated to science. In a historic high rise, the Hotel ICON will be your jumping off point for an exciting visit. As you enter the James Turrell Skyspace, you will be blown away by the light shows at this structure that is as much art installation as observatory. A little further away are NASA's Space Center and the Museum of Natural Science, where you have all the time in the world to explore the mysteries of the cosmos.
