It's not all doom and gloom when summer comes to a close. During autumn, off-season travellers to bask in a quieter (and more Instagrammable) version of their destination. Everyone could use a city break. City breaks come with all of the exploring, arts and culture, nights out, and sightseeing you could wish for.

An autumn city break is the perfect way to experience the magic of your typical city break without having to put up with the sweltering summer heatwaves and heaving crowds.

Get planning for the trip of a lifetime in these cities:

1. Paris

Sufficed by Audrey Hepburn when she said that 'Paris is always a good idea.'

Paris comes alive in September. With the Autumn Festival, which sees a variety of dance, music, film, and theatre act flooding the city. Adding to the list are: Crisp cool sunny days, crunchy golden leaves underfoot, steaming cups of hot chocolate, new exhibitions, and wine festivals.

The Seine is extra atmospheric at dawn or dusk on crisp, cool autumn days. Along the river bank, you'll find street stalls with roasting chestnuts.

'White Night' is an event that features several galleries, museums, and other buildings throughout the city opening late into the night, showcasing special exhibits and events.

2. London

Autumn is arguably the best time for walking in the capital.

If you want a city break on home turf, London has everything. Shop in Oxford Street, watch a show in the West End, visit the city's excellent museums, and take a trip on the London Eye.

London Design Festival is where various locations across London host parts of the London Design Festival. Look out for the colorful Walala Lounge in South Molton Street and live mural painting on Tottenham Court Road.

Meanwhile, you can catch 'Dear Evan Hansen,' which is a Broadway musical smash that follows the eponymous lonely letter-writing teen, who poses as a friend of Connor, a classmate who has committed suicide.

3. Stockholm

Stockholm's location is quite special, as it's scattered across numerous islets. You should definitely go on a boat trip along the islands and locks. Pay a visit to the Astrid Lindgren Museum, Junibacken, or Drottningholm Slott. That old cliché of Swedes being the most beautiful people in the world is definitely true.

In Fjällgatan, you'll get a fantastic view of Gamla Stan and the museum island of Skeppsholmen.

Sweden's apple season produces delicious apples. Make a day out of picking apples at the exquisite apple orchards at Edeby Gård in Drottningholm or Rosenhill in Ekerö. You can bake a delightful Swedish apple crumble, or äppelsmulpaj.

4. Venice

Venice is a city that must be visited at least once in a lifetime. It's a magical place where gondolas and waterbuses replace cars. Obviously, a gondola ride is a must, but you should also try to catch an opera at La Fenice as well as visit the Peggy Guggenheim Collection.

This is the perfect climate to bicycle around Lido. It's the perfect time to visit the various art exhibitions around the island, but also the perfect time to have aperitifs before lunch.

You can encounter high water: the sea invades the alleyways, campielli, and fondamente reminding you of the difficult yet fascinating balance the city built on water deals with.

Have a trip for the books this autumn.
