With autumn arriving in an explosion of colour, it’s all the more reason to see those destinations on your bucket list 

With lively festivals (hello, Oktoberfest), autumn foliage and mild temperatures, October makes for exceptional European travel. While autumnal weather may not always be suitable for every outdoor expedition, it does make the region less expensive than its summer counterparts. Nestled between the most popular seasons, you’ll be able to sit on beaches in Amalfi, explore ancient civilisations in Malta and maybe even see snow in the northern regions all without the high-season crowds.
