With scenic journeys, 45-minute check-ins from St. Pancras and the chance to choose green travel over air travel, Eurostar is the perfect choice for a city break.

We’ve focused on short breaks to France on this page. Before continuing on to the likes of Provence or Burgundy, all feature a luxury two-night stay in Paris, with hand-picked tours and private transfers included throughout. There’s also always the chance to upgrade to Business Premier class for everything from lounge access to a three-course meal and 10-minute check-ins. Without further ado, here are our top picks:

  3. Avignon & Paris (Best for medieval treasures)
  4. Dijon & Paris (Best for vineyards and timber-house idyll)
