The Top 5 European City Breaks this Autumn

Summer may be over – but that doesn’t mean it’s the end of the holiday season. In fact, autumn can be excellent time to travel, particularly in Europe. With fewer tourists around and cheaper deals available, it’s the perfect time of year to enjoy a European city break. Can’t decide on where to go?

Look no further than our guide to the top five destinations…

1. Paris
As Audrey Hepburn once said, “Paris is always a good idea.” And it’s just a joy to visit at this time of year. Just imagine the Tuileries Garden on a sunny autumn’s day! Ask almost anyone who’s experienced it, and they’ll tell you how glorious it is. Sunsets over the Seine on autumn evenings are also worth mentioning. Oh, and let’s not forget how spectacular the Arc de Triomphe looks when illuminated at night.

2. Budapest
Budapest is famed for its beauty – visit it any day of the year, and you’ll no doubt be mesmerised. It’s particularly splendid in autumn, though. After all, this is the season where golden leaves blanket the Hungarian capital, further enhancing its aesthetic charm. For the ultimate view, head to the top of Gellert Hill. Here, you’ll be able to see the city in all its autumnal glory.

3. Barcelona
Ah, Barcelona. Many of us long to visit the Catalonian city – and it’s easy to see why. It brims with both history and visual appeal, from its iconic cathedral to its beaches. But autumn is when this destination truly comes into its own. Visit any time before mid-November, and you’re practically guaranteed warm temperatures. Better still, it’s easy to secure flights and Barcelona airport transfers at any time of year.

4. Zagreb, Croatia
Though you may associate it with summer holidays, Croatian cities are perfect for autumnal trips. Take the capital Zagreb, for example. Awash with seasonal colours, the city is a joy to explore in autumn. Stroll through its park to see for yourself! After a day of exploration, you could always treat yourself to hearty Ćevapi, which is widely considered to be the national dish of Croatia.

5. Bruges, Belgium
Are you after an idyllic autumnal scene? If so, Bruges could be the place for you! Its canals and medieval design give it a fairy-tale aesthetic, which autumn magnifies. Enjoy the season by boat, on a tour, and learn all about the city’s rich trading heritage. Or spend your time exploring treasures in its wealth of museums and galleries.

You’ll most likely want to make the most of the season. Select from any one of our suggested cities, and you could do just that.
