Winter and autumn are the ideal time to go on a city trip through Europe. With a city trip in the autumn or winter, you extend the summer holiday, and you still have that holiday feeling. If you choose the right European cities, you can also enjoy the autumn sun. Would you like to go on a city trip this autumn or winter, but do you want pleasant or not cold temperatures? Then you should definitely read on..

We suggest renting a van (Dutch: personenbus huren) to travel from A to B. And if you’re with a group of friends, you can rent a van for 9 people (Dutch: 9 persoons bus huren).

City trip to Porto

Porto has stolen a lot of hearts. Porto is without a doubt one of the most beautiful cities hikers have visited in recent years. Admire the beautiful harbor, walk through streets full of authentic Portuguese houses, enjoy culinary delights, and visit all the great sights.

Do a port tasting like us, take a boat trip along the 7 beautiful bridges, or go on a tour to the Douro Valley. The great thing about Porto is that the temperatures are very pleasant in the autumn. The average temperature in Porto in October is 21 degrees. Isn’t that the ideal temperature for a city trip?

Athens the city of history

Do you prefer Greece and do you like history? Athens is highly recommended. Athens is a wonderful city to stroll around. The city breathes history and has so many beautiful places that you can’t get bored easily. Places such as the world-famous Acropolis and Parthenon are definitely worth a visit, and the old working-class neighborhood of Plaka full of idyllic streets should not be missed during a city trip.

Athens is a city that you should visit especially in the spring or autumn. In the high season (July and August) it can be very hot. We were there in September, but in October it is also lovely with about 23 degrees.

Rome and the Colosseum

The largest open-air museum in Europe is located in Italy. We are, of course, talking about beautiful Rome. A city trip in Rome lets you enjoy the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, and of course the Vatican. Rome is probably the most touristic city in this list, but don’t let that put you off. And not at all in the autumn, when the average temperature is 22 degrees. The ideal city trip temperature, don’t you think? Rome is also a city where your eyes fail. Every street in Rome has its own charm, you just keep shooting photos. Rome is a city that you should not miss if you are a fanatic city tripper.


Lisbon: city of melancholic fado music, tram 28, fresh fish, ‘marisco’, port, ‘azulejos’ and friendly inhabitants. If you like big cities, good food, and many beautiful sights, then Lisbon is the right place for you. Those who visit Lisbon in the autumn can enjoy temperatures around 23 degrees. The colorful streets, trams, and special bridges make this Portuguese city extra special.
