Every Saturday in the Independent’s award-winning Traveller section, our “48 hours” stories explore new and exciting city-break itineraries. Now, 25 years after the series was first launched, we’ve produced this special book, designed to help you get the most from a visit to a selection of 20 European capitals.

The destinations we’ve focused on encompass well known and less- visited options, and offer travellers everything from dazzling architecture to world-class museums, designer shopping and historic landmarks. They’re blessed with a range of accommodation options to suit every budget, restaurants for every taste, and bars and cafés that offer the chance to connect with local life. These are city breaks to tell your friends about; the sort of places that you’ll want to revisit in order to discover more of their secrets.

We hope you enjoy planning your time away – and if you need further inspiration look out for more 48 hours ideas each week in the Independent.
