1 week in Europe in the fall

Portugal and Spain

Fall is an ideal time to visit Europe. The summer crowds have left, the temperature has dropped — along with the prices — and you’ll have some of Europe’s top cities to explore with much more peace and quiet. Because of this it’s possibly the best time to visit the likes of Portugal and Spain. If you’re looking to spend 1 week in Europe in the fall, consider this a good starting point.
