Is there anything better than welcoming autumn by planning a city break? I do personally love all seasons, since I believe any moment of the year is able to surprise you in some way. When it comes to traveling, you know that it is always the right moment for it.
Just go and discover a new city, another culture, several tasty dishes and history, feeling like a local. This is what traveling is about, is not it? Ready to fly with your mind and heart? Time to head over to the next travel destination!
5 beautiful city breaks for this autumn
*1 Prague (Czech Republic)
Still wondering why Prague? This is a real gem located in the heart of Europe. Just go and walk into the magical atmosphere of the city center,the best way to discover its history. From Charles Bridge to the Jewish Quarter through the Old Town Square, you will easily fall in love with this city. Do not forget to try out some amazing desserts, just to make your trip even more special. Go for a tasty Strudl (pastry with apples, raisins and cinnamon), Trdelník (spiral-shaped cake dusted with vanilla/cinnamon sugar and dried fruit as almonds and walnuts).
*2 Reykjavik (Iceland)
Always wanted to go and explore Iceland? Autumn is one of the best parts of the year you can go and enjoy this beautiful island. When in Reykjavik, if you want to enjoy a wonderful view then you can definitely go to the top of Hallgrímskirkja church: you will love admiring this unique landscape. And what about visiting the Harpa Concert and Conference Hall? Remember you are in one of the best places in the world to enjoy the amazing Northern Lights. Could be enough to go and visit Iceland? I do believe it!
*3 Marrakech (Morocco)
If you are looking for a charming travel destination in Northern Africa, then one amazing option is Marrakech. Autumn is simply perfect to visit this city, since the summer is often extremely hot. You can start to discover the city from Jemaa el Fna, the magical square and souk market. Koutoubia Mosque is another must-see, as well as enjoying the atmosphere of the fascinating souks. Last but not least, head to Jardin Majorelle, to take a break from the city and dream. What to eat and drink? Well the list could be quite long, anyway I suggest you to try Tagine (vegetables and meat), Zaalouk (smoked aubergine dip, I simply love it). And I am sure you will get a great Mint Tea, traditional to the Maghreb region.
*4 Bruges (Belgium)
Here is another wonderful idea for the ones who want to go and enjoy a fantastic city. Bruges has something magical to offer to its visitors, since when you walk into the downtown you feel like you are dreaming. What better than having a delicious Belgian waffle during autumn? Best way to start your journey, to recharge your body and be ready to discover the beauties of Bruges. Any suggestions? Windmill Walk (for an amazing lovely walk), The Basilica of the Holy Blood are two must-see. A great idea is to visit the city from the water, by taking a Canal boat tour: you will not regret it!

Croatia? Such a great choice for your weekend! Dubrovnik is a very charming city and an Unesco world heritage site. You will be surprised by admiring its elegant Baroque churches, while walking in the Old Town, which is located within the Medieval City Walls.
