Once the peak summer season is over, we have many months ahead of us to travel ... at the best price. The offers that we can find from September to virtually Easter, with the Christmas break in December, will mostly have an affordable price for most pockets to more or less nearby destinations, depending on the days we have.
Europe, thanks to the proximity of its capitals, would be one of the best recommendations that we could make for you to take this break and enjoy some weekend getaways with children, as a family or as a couple.
Edinburgh as a family
It is a place worth visiting at any time of the year. In the case of going when the temperatures start to drop, you can take advantage of the "Scotch Whiskey Experience Tour" or, if you dare, to enter with all your family in the City of the Dead, a guided tour that will take you to the Enchanted cemetery or the underground city that hides Edinburgh under its oldest foundations. Perfect if your trip coincides with the celebration of Halloween on October 31! But not everything is sinister. If what you want is fun and party, come to the Royal Oak and enjoy authentic folk music live.
London with children
After the summer, the best season to travel to London begins, since July and August are excessively sunny months that could distort the perception of the least expert traveler with respect to the authentic climate that usually characterizes the British capital: rain , fog and the permanent smog that surrounds the city. Some attributes that, together with the wide and varied cultural, gastronomic and leisure offer make London a classic destination to escape any weekend during the next months.
Barcelona at your leisure
As we said at the beginning of the article, Europe is full of beautiful cities to visit. But Spain too, and we often forget what we have at home and we will look for experiences that we could find closer, with the corresponding savings in time and money. Barcelona is a good example. Although it is a city that in summer shines in its maximum splendor thanks to its sea and good weather, the Catalan capital offers much more than sun and beaches. Music festivals such as the Primavera Club, popular celebrations such as "La Mercè", the city's own party that takes place on September 24, or the wide-ranging gastronomic offer are sufficient arguments to get closer to Barcelona.
Madrid for everyone
The city for the whole world. Madrid is a real attraction for anyone who wants to enjoy a great metropolis, at any time of the year. Its cultural offer - Museo del Prado, Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza or Reina Sofía - is on par with that of New York, Paris or London. If the purpose of the trip is to go shopping, the Salamanca district, Chueca, Puerta del Sol or Gran Vía are excellent choices. If the getaway that you have planned has not been able to be alone and finally you take the whole family, the Retiro Park or the Warner Park are a guarantee of fun and entertainment for the little ones. Prague as a familyFamous for its Gothic architecture and its pointed skyline, the capital of the Czech Republic has become a regular destination for short breaks during the autumn. A popularity justified by its well-connected airport and its natural and historical attractions such as the Vltava River - which divides the city in two - or the Charles Bridge that joins both halves, a jewel of pre-Renaissance architecture from the 14th century. Despite its tourist attraction, visiting Prague outside the summer season is relatively quiet, as its streets and promenades are emptied of tourists starting in September. Navigate the Vltava, witness the changing of the guard of Prague Castle, visit the Astronomical Clock and the many Gothic churches that hide in the streets of the old town or take the old railway to the Petrin Tower.
Venice as a couple
One of the most romantic cities in the world, Venice is beautiful all year round, but it reaches its peak in autumn, when the mass of summer tourists disappears. Walk quietly through its Renaissance canals in one of its traditional gondolas, taste the exquisite dishes - seafood and highly recommended - visit the Plaza San Marcos and see its delicate palazziof the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
Krakow with children
One of the Polish cities of greatest interest, and also one of the least known. There is no better time to visit it than autumn, before the low temperatures of mid-winter make it practically impossible to walk through its streets without running the risk of suffering an immediate freeze. Apart from restaurants and clubs, Krakow is famous for Wawel Castle, its Gothic churches or its markets. It is also worth visiting the Jewish quarter of Kazimierz or any of its baroque buildings.
