Best fall travel locations:

1. Prague, Czech Republic

The 'City of a Hundred Spires' becomes a spectacle during autumn. The historic bridges, charming squares, and cobblestone streets wear a golden hue, making it an unforgettable experience. Savour a trdelník by the Vltava River for an authentic autumn feel.

2. Vienna, Austria

From the vineyards of Grinzing to the grandeur of Schönbrunn Palace, Vienna in the fall is all about art, music, and wine festivals. Don’t forget to try their famous sachertorte paired with a warm beverage.

3. Lake Bled, Slovenia

This stunning Alpine lake, with its iconic island church, is even more enchanting during the autumn months. Canoe through the gentle waters or hike the surrounding hills for panoramic vistas.

Prague, Czech Republic

4. Cinque Terre, Italy

These five colourful coastal villages come alive amidst the rust-coloured vineyards in the backdrop. Enjoy a coastal hike and reward yourself with an Italian seafood feast.

5. Dubrovnik, Croatia

Autumn sees fewer tourists in this 'Pearl of the Adriatic', making it an ideal time to explore its medieval walls, historic sites, and blue seas at your own pace.

6. Bordeaux, France

Known for its wines, Bordeaux in autumn offers vineyard tours and wine-tasting sessions that are simply unbeatable. Its neo-classical architecture adorned with autumn leaves is a bonus.

Edinburgh, Scotland

7. Edinburgh, Scotland

The Scottish capital, with its medieval Old Town, becomes a storybook delight. Traverse the Royal Mile, explore the spooky underground vaults, or hike up Arthur's Seat for a fall-tastic view.

8. Bruges, Belgium

The canals. The chocolates. The beers. Bruges is a dreamy destination with its foliage reflecting in the calm waters, and the autumnal chill making those Belgian hot chocolates even more delightful.
