Turkey - Antalya
Turkey is increasingly becoming one of the hotspots for early autumn. Antalya specifically is enjoying being known as a popular destination. If you are not quite ready to accept the cold oncoming autumn weather you can delay it by visiting Antalya and enjoying its average temperature of 21 degrees. It is recommended that you check out Perge, which is the closest Roman ruin to Antalya. You can also get lost in history by also visiting Aspendos, Termessos and Side.
Near the resort of Side is Manavgat waterfalls. This is an amazing place to spend the day relaxing and capturing some epic selfies. There are plenty of garden cafes that provide refreshments and there are gift shops that are open all the time. If you want to see more of nature’s wonderful waterfalls, head to the bigger Duden waterfalls within the city of Antalya. It is truly a wonderful resort city that has more than enough to offer so you can enjoy your trip.
Italy - Rome
Rome has never failed to deliver; we think it will always remain a tourist hotspot no matter what time of the year it is. During the October months the weather in Rome is very mild, and the average sea temperature is about 22 degrees, which is warm enough to have a lovely dip in the ocean during your holiday.
When in Rome, do what the Romans do. Get lost in enjoying the food, culture and art. Check out the Palazzo Doria Pamphilj for amazing artwork. Check out the Colosseum and the other tourist attractions such as The Sistine Chapel, Piazza Navona, Trevi Fountain and many more all within the city. During this time of the year it will not be crowded, so you will be able to gain easy access to the popular tourist attractions with minimal waiting time and fuss.
USA - New Orleans
New Orleans is the place to be in October. The city is awash with cultural offerings and of course plenty of festivals. Also, the weather during this time is at 26 degrees. So it will still feel like you are right in the middle of summer.
