Throughout the autumn, while the Christmas season has not yet begun, many Europeans are too addicted to work and forget about the charm of city breaks and weekend trips. Visit these unusual but amazing tourist destinations to be inspired by autumn.
Montpellier-Statue La Victoire de Samothrace
Montpellier is the capital of the Languedoc-Roussillon region in south-west France. In general, this city is very suitable for creativity and inspiration. Even the railway station here is built on the site of the burnt theatre. The city is set with elements of ancient Greek motifs that contrast the modern buildings. Montpellier is a town of painters. Here you can get acquainted with various French artists and become a muse for some of them.
San Sebastian, which is also called Donostia in the Basque language, is famous as one of the most elegant and fashionable seaside towns in Spain. It is appropriate for people of all ages and interests. However, the best attraction here is gastronomic tours. What could be better than enjoying the local cider, the famous Basque pintxos, and looking at the immaculate Atlantic Ocean?
Autumn is a very mysterious time of the year and it preserves a lyrical mood of fairytales and legends. In Bremen, you can recall the old tale of stray musicians by visiting the house of Robinson Crusoe and then getting inspired by the beauty of these stories. Bremen is unique. The city unites an old fairytale character with German modernity.
Lviv is the cultural capital of Ukraine. It is a unique ancient city and an increasingly popular destination for European tourists due to low prices and its economic growth. For only £200, you could have an ideal weekend full of ancient cathedrals, castles, churches, and … tasty coffee!
Madeira – The Portuguese Paradise
This lost island in the Atlantic Ocean guarantees a quiet rest in the atmosphere of eternal summer. Although this option is slightly remote (the duration of the flight from London to Funchal is about five hours), it will give you the feeling of inner harmony and the opportunity to taste exotic fruits and unusual mainland Europe dishes. Besides, Madeira is very popular with Cristiano Ronaldo’s fans. The legendary Portuguese footballer was born on the island and is rumoured to enjoy celebrating Christmas there. Maybe you will be lucky enough to meet him or at least to visit the Museu CR7.
