As Europe prepares to transform into shades of red, orange, yellow and brown, cities like Tbilisi, Lisbon and Florence embrace cooler temperatures and quieter crowds before the holiday season begins. Whether you’re meandering along the coastline of southern Italy, sipping the good stuff in Porto, or shopping in Istanbul, autumn is a wonderful time to soak in all that Europe has to offer with TRIPS by Culture Trip.
1 . Rome, Florence, Pisa and Milan, Italy
This TRIPS by Culture Trip 10-day autumn tour starts in Rome, and where better? With millennia of history on every street corner, it’s one of the most interesting cities in the world. Head north from here to take in Renaissance art in Florence, the leaning tower in Pisa and the fashion temples of Milan. Autumn is the perfect time to visit when the crowds are few and the sunshine lingers. Plus you get the changing woodland colours separating the mountains and Lake Como that are quintessential autumn.

2 . Istanbul, Turkey
As if strolling the Grand Bazaar wasn’t reason enough, a visit to Istanbul in the autumn months will give you an opportunity to attend the oldest trade show in the country: the Izmir International Fair. If you can’t make it in the early days of September, October and November will embrace you with milder temperatures, which are ideal for comfortably exploring Koprulu Canyon National Park and sailing over Cappadocia in a hot-air balloon. Feel and see how cool Istanbul and Ankara are during this two-week TRIPS by Culture Trip Turkey tour.

4 . Tbilisi, Georgia
Early autumn is one of the best times of the year to immerse yourself in Georgia’s natural beauty. Green trees take on multicoloured shades as the last sunny days grace the season in and around Tbilisi. Hiking through Lagodekhi National Park and into the Caucasus Mountains is as serene as the photos would suggest. And when the chill comes in late autumn, the country’s warm hospitality and wine feel extra welcoming. Fall in love with Georgia on this nine-day TRIPS by Culture Trip autumn tour.

5 . Naples, Italy
Europe in autumn is splendid – and southern Italy is an excellent destination at this time of year. As the tourist season comes to an end on the Amalfi coast, it’s an ideal time to visit cities such as Positano and savour the last days of sunshine without the crowds. Tourist-free towns such as Bari make Puglia equally alluring, offering a fantastic holiday where you won’t wait in long queues at restaurants or museums. Start in Naples and venture to Lecce on this laid-back 10-day TRIPS by Culture Trip tour through the Amalfi coast and Puglia region.
