Summer may have gone, but it also means the tourists and sweltering heat have gone too! It is why autumn is the perfect time to take a break to one of THE big cities. In summer a trip to a museum can be hard work because of the crowds, while booking a reservation at a fine restaurant is often impossible. Not in autumn! Everything is more accessible and this makes things more fun to do. Here are the top 5 cities to visit during autumn.
1. To Paris With Love
Paris is especially beautiful in the autumn. It is the perfect time of year for a romantic stroll along the Seine, when the trees are yellow and there is a crisp chill in the air. It’s also a great time to visit the wonderful attractions Paris has to offer, from the Eiffel Tower to The Arc de Triomphe. The only downside is it can be an expensive city to stay in, but it doesn’t have to be as there are lots of affordable and fabulous Paris holiday lettings available for rent. Paris is the perfect city for an autumn romance!
2. Take A Bite Of The Big Apple
Autumn is the perfect time to head to New York. A stroll through Central Park or a trip to see the Statue of Liberty is a joy as the weather is so pleasant at this time of year. It’s also the perfect place to do your Christmas shopping, as the shops are second to none! From Macy’s to the trendy boutiques in Soho, you are spoilt for choice. And then there’s Broadway to enjoy with all its fabulous shows. No wonder they call it the city that never sleeps when there’s so many wonderful things to do.
3. Go Double Dutch
Amsterdam in the autumn is just stunning and so romantic. The canals are the perfect setting for an amorous walk or cycle ride. And you will find lots of cool cafes to duck into and many great museums to enjoy. If you love your art the Rijksmuseum is a great place to visit. It has over 400 masterpieces, including paintings by Rembrandt, Vermeer and Van Gogh. Van Gogh even has his own museum, which has over 700 drawings and paintings on show. Amsterdam is a great place to find the perfect mix of culture and romance.
4. Don’t Be A Sauerkraut
Berlin’s beautiful autumnal scenery makes it a stunning place to visit. It is also a great time to go to attractions like The Brandenburg Gate or The Berliner Dom. If you want culture there are more than fifty museums to enjoy. It’s also a great place for some retail therapy – the KaDeWe is Germany’s equivalent of Harrods. And it would be remiss not to mention Berlin’s infamous nightlife; from hipster bars to techno clubs there is something for every taste!
5. It’s London Baby!
Autumn is the perfect time to explore London. The crowds have gone and the Tube isn’t as hot as hell. One of the world’s most vibrant cities, there is always something to do – you can catch a West End show; shop till you drop on Oxford Street; visit the Palaces and world famous museums; view the stunning skyline on the London Eye; go to a Premier League football match – the list is endless! The great thing about London in autumn is there are so many fantastic London holiday lettings to choose from. London has always been the place to be!
