Summer holidays are every employee’s obsessive thought in the months preceding them. However, as we approach mid-summer and most of us have likely already booked all their flights and accommodation for the long-awaited break, it could actually be high time to plan a bit more in advance and think of grand plans for the Autumn.

Whether you are thinking of a city break or something a little bit longer, Autumn offers a mild climate, less crowded destinations and more affordable prices.

So it really pays to be a good planner and start thinking of your favourite spots for an Autumn break. Here are three ideas to help you find the inspiration you need for your Autumn getaway.

London at its best

The UK is an overall top destination for Autumn travellers as the climate is still mild and there are plenty events and activity for lone travellers and families alike. London is usually buzzing in September with new musicals in the East End being added daily, and touring bands hitting the English capital more regularly than during other seasons. The London parks also shine in their warm yellow and orange foliage, and spectacular views can be enjoyed in Greenwich Park, Hyde Park and from the hilly haven of Hampstead Heath. During Autumn, the English capital is also chosen by increasingly more people for very niche kinds of tourism: for instance, London is a favourite for tourists looking for specialized cosmetic treatments, or even for wandering freelance workers looking to make the most of the city’s wide array of coworking and networking options.

Relaxing in Rome

The Roman summer can be extremely hot, and  both the city and the Vatican are visited by hordes of tourists. So why not enjoy the Eternal city at a time when temperatures are less extreme and the ancient cobblestones and alleys are more walkable for tourists and locals alike? From the Galleria Nazionale to the Macro and the Vatican museums, this is the ideal time to enjoy a cultural offer that is unmatched in most other capitals without the queues affecting them through most of the year. If you have some extra time, make sure you can venture outside the city walls and discover the hilly countryside and the charming cities of Ariccia and Frascati, with culinary events almost every weekend during Autumn.

The summer isn’t over yet!

We are not used to thinking of Autumn as a season to go swimming and sunbathing, but this doesn’t match the reality of some areas in the South of Europe and North Africa alike, when temperatures are still balmy and one can be tempted to think that the summer isn’t over even in October. From the Canary islands to Morocco, Egypt and Israel, there are plenty of options to have a fascinating seaside break with much more affordable prices than during the high season, so why not book now to get an even better deal?
