How can you make sure summer goes out with a bang? Start planning your autumn holiday! Many people consider that this is the best time of year to travel.

The weather is still pleasant, so there are many reasons that make autumn a special time of year to travel. And it was precisely with this in mind that we put together a list of some of the best destinations for a holiday or a short break.


Prague is one of the season’s best options. The Czech Republic has all of its usual charm but the chilly winter weather is still a way off. The streets, squares and bridges of the “City of a Hundred Spires” are sure to charm you. Architectural styles ranging from Baroque to Rococo, Neoclassical and Gothic contrast with the city’s modern buildings. Don’t miss the Astronomical Clock, the Old Town Square and the famous Charles Bridge, leading to Prague Castle (considered the world’s biggest castle). Fabulous photos are guaranteed! Fly to Prague with Travel Service.


Madrid is an undeniably fantastic destination at any time of year, but there’s something even more special about it in autumn! It is a joy to be able to visit the most sought-after sites and museums and benefit from autumn’s very distinctive light to take unique photos. Besides the museums, there are many other leisure options! For example, you could watch one of the world’s best flamenco shows, visit a theme park or enjoy the delicious diversity of Spanish cuisine.  And if you choose your dates with care, you could even get the chance to go and see a UEFA Champions League match with Real Madrid or Atlético de Madrid! Discover Madrid with Iberia.


A Mediterranean climate, narrow streets replete with history and boundless culture! Naples is Italy’s third-largest city and there’s so much to explore. Resplendent in autumn colours and known as the birthplace of the Margherita pizza, its UNESCO World Heritage historical city centre is sure to impress. Naples is an unmissable destination for those who appreciate both cultural and natural landscapes, such as the Island of Capri. In fact, history and culture are everywhere! The sites you should make a point of visiting are Mount Vesuvius, Naples Cathedral, the Pio Monte della Misericordia, the Veiled Christ, the Monumental Complex of Saint Claire, and Pompeii and Herculaneum. And then there’s the food… mamma mia! Travel to Naples from Faro and take advantage of easyJet’s offers!


Manchester is tops!

Manchester is buzzing in autumn! The United Kingdom’s most artistic city always has plenty of great leisure options on offer and is even more appealing in autumn. For example, the hometown of the bands Oasis and The Smith has a huge Chinese neighbourhood – Chinatown – where you can start your day with a traditional Chinese brunch (dim sum). And the city is another venue for UEFA Champions League matches. Man United or Manchester City? If history is your thing, be sure to visit Manchester Cathedral and the Town Hall, the seat of local government. If you want to enjoy a pint or two, we recommend the Castlefield area, symbol of the Industrial Revolution and now home to a cluster of bars and pubs. You can get there from Faro with Ryanair, easyJet or Jet2!


Nobody is indifferent to a Scandinavian city! Stockholm is even more stunning when it is bathed in golden light and the ground is covered in autumn leaves.

The “Venice of the North” is home to the Nobel Museum, the Cathedral of Saint Nicholas and the Great Square, with its mediaeval “feel”, one of the city’s icons. Stockholm also hosts various events and festivals at this time of year: in September, the Gather Night Festival takes place, in October the city welcomes the Stockholm Jazz Festival and, in November, there is the Stockholm International Film Festival. You can visit Stockholm with SAS and Norwegian.

An array of attractions, pleasant weather and cheaper prices… autumn is the season for travelling!
