A walkable city centre makes for pleasant autumn exploring in Verona. For the best weather, visit in September or early October when the temps are still quite warm. Orient yourself around Piazza Bra, an easy-to-find open square lined with quaint cafes that are perfect for people watching.

Stroll wide photogenic piazzas and narrow cobblestone alleyways, stopping for an espresso and local conversation at one of the area’s charming cafes. Closeby Piazza Bra, you’ll find the Verona Arena, a well-preserved Roman amphitheatre that’s still in use, as well as Juliet’s house, a fictional homage to Shakespeare’s Verona-set “Romeo and Juliet”.

Trade the raucous autumn crowds of Munich for a relaxed getaway in Cologne
Trade the raucous autumn crowds of Munich for a relaxed getaway in Cologne

While autumn in Germany may conjure up images of Munich’s Oktoberfest, there are lots of other reasons to visit the country this time of year. Aside from affordable flights, Cologne has a lot to offer autumn travellers looking to get a taste of art and culture.

As the weather cools a bit, take advantage of the city’s vibrant art scene – from local galleries (we suggest OffArtCologne tucked away in the old town for work by up-and-coming artists) to a sizeable sculpture park (the largest in northern Europe) to an eclectic collection of street art.

Still quite warm in September, Sofia is a relaxed alternative to Europe’s more touristy capitals. It has tons to offer by way of architecture, art and culture. Enjoy the autumn colours from picturesque Borisova gradina, the oldest park in the city, or window shop along posh Vitosha Boulevard with views of Vitosha Mountain.

As temperatures dip towards the end of autumn, stay toasty by enjoying the area’s signature rakia, a local fruit brandy, served warm with honey and black pepper.

Oslo, Norway

Flights from London Stansted to Oslo from £43

From foliage to hearty flavours, Oslo is an idyllic autumn destination
From foliage to hearty flavours, Oslo is an idyllic autumn destination

If you’re hoping to spot some of autumn’s rich, warm hues, Oslo is an attractive option. Head just outside the city to the Oslomarka Forest for stunning foliage and autumn colours.

Temperatures are often pleasantly warm through October, while November is typically when winter weather starts to make its appearance (although a bit of late-autumn snow only adds to the magic of this Nordic city). Since autumn means harvest time in Norway, pack your appetite alongside a jumper or two. Seasonal local ingredients make for rich, flavourful dishes ideal for the cooling temps.

It may be autumn, but it still feels like summer in Porto
It may be autumn, but it still feels like summer in Porto

Porto makes for a laid-back getaway, easily lending itself to on-foot exploring and indulgent wine tasting. And with temperatures staying warm throughout the season (September and October offer up highs in the 20s), autumn is an ideal time to visit. Walk along the Douro River, stopping in at a waterfront cafe for a glass of the city’s signature wine and watch boats sail past.

For incredible birds-eye views of the city, climb the 240 steps to the top of Clerigos Tower, or stay at street level and meander along Rua das Carmelitas with a mandatory stop at Livraria Lello, which is often named the world’s most beautiful bookstore.
