Athens (from £57 return)

By autumn, temperatures in the ancient Greek city have cooled off to a pleasant level. Apparently the 6th most visited capital in the world, Athens is an ideal base from which to explore the four surrounding mountains (Parnitha, Penteli, Hymettus and Egaleo) and go mountain biking, rafting or just walking, along the well marked paths to take in the beautiful gorges, springs and waterfalls that dot the region.

Lisbon (from £41 return)

With temperatures in the late teens, autumn is a wonderful time to discover the Portuguese capital – one of the few in Europe that offer both a river and a coastline. A city set on seven hills, explore the quiet, romantic, narrow streets of the old quarters of Alfama and Bairro Alto, or hop on a boat trip and take a mini cruise up the river Tejo.

Rome (from £44 return)

They say that autumn in Rome is like a good British summer – warm, sunny and blue. Whilst this isn’t guaranteed, autumn is a far better time to visit the Italian capital than summer, unless of course, you enjoy having your shirt permanently fused to your back. Now’s the time for you to take in the ancient Roman landmarks – The Colosseum, The Temple of the Pantheon and The Imperial Forums, without having to battle the crowds. Find cheap flights to Rome
