A weekend of indulgence in Europe’s ‘chocolate capital’
With Belgium producing some of the world’s finest chocolate, Brussels makes an enticing choice for a spot of Easter indulgence. With the smell of chocolate wafting through the streets, visitors will need no encouragement to take a chocolate walking tour or workshop, while those wanting to know more about the history of the sweet treat can do so during a visit to the Belgian Chocolate Village Museum. Where better to celebrate the biggest chocolate extravaganza of the year than Europe’s chocolate capital!
In the heart of the city, just minutes away from Brussels main square, guests will find the elegant and charming NH Collection Brussels Centre.

Cultural Discoveries in Rome
Easter is one of the most memorable times of the year to visit the Italian capital. As well as the many religious events, this vibrant city is packed with history and art, not to mention great food. No visit to Rome is complete without a visit to the Colosseum, the largest amphitheatre of the Roman Empire, while other unmissable landmarks include the Trevi Fountain, Saint Peter’s Basilica and Galleria Borghese. And when the sightseeing is over, it’s time to relax over some of Rome’s legendary cuisine.
