Athens is a beautiful city with an impressive history, delicious food, and friendly locals. It ranked in 8th place with an overall score of 6.41 out of 10. Nightly accommodation was marginally more expensive than in Prague, averaging £70.00 per night. However, the average seasonal temperature remains warm throughout the fall at 18.60ºC.

7 New York, USA

New York is 7th on the list of top cities around the world to visit in autumn, according to Bounce, which awarded it a ranking of 6.52 out of 10. Temperatures are crisp and pleasant averaging 13.83ºC, but prices remain high, with nightly accommodation averaging £196.00. Despite the lack of affordability in New York City, there is an abundance of fall events to partake in (around 30) which is significantly more than most other cities in the top 10. Travelers who want to occupy their time and remain active on a fall trip will thrive in the bustle of NYC.

6 Vienna, Austria

Vienna in Austria ranks 6th with a score of 6.65 out of 10. The Austrian capital beats out even NYC for events during the fall months, with 35 events for travelers to choose from. Prices are competitive at around £81.00 per night, but the weather is exceptional, with just 57.67 mm of rain on average during this season.

5 Los Angeles, USA

Coming in at 5th with a score of 6.69 out of 10 is the California haven of Los Angeles.

4 Berlin, Germany

The top four cities in the world for autumn travel are all located on the European continent. Number 4 is the capital of Germany and scores 6.93 out of 10, according to Bounce. 3-star hotel prices per night are moderate, costing just £89.00. Though temperatures are brisk, averaging 10.50ºC, there is little rainfall, and the fall foliage is truly beautiful.

3 London, England

In third, with a score of 7.11 out of 10, is London, England. The busy capital of England is undoubtedly best visited during autumn when temperatures are cooler (averaging 11.53ºC) and tourism is lower than in the summer months. Although more affordable than the United States cities in the top 10, a 3-star hotel still costs around £135.00 per night in London during fall, which is relatively expensive. However, the dry weather, crisp fall air, changing leaves on the trees, and cozy pub atmosphere all make an autumn trip to London worthwhile.
