The temperature in the UK has dropped, and we’re certainly suffering from a bit of wanderlust here at Roar.
This is the perfect time of year for travelling and exploring new places - our favourite summer holiday destinations have become free of crowds, making it the perfect time to squeeze in a bit of sun before the Christmas period.
There are a few destinations that benefit from year-round sunshine, such as the Canary Islands and Egypt - however, these places have been exhausted and we’re making it our mission to pick out a handful of undiscovered destinations.
A scorcher of a city from April - August, Autumn is the best time to visit Seville thanks to the cooler climes, breezy days and streets which are a little less stuffy, but no less romantic.
Voted the best city in the world to visit by Lonely Planet, the city oozes a certain sense of passion and individuality. Highlights include one of the largest Christian churches in the world, Seville Cathedral, which is awe-inspiring in both grandeur and majesty.
Colourful fiestas take place throughout the Autumn months, where visitors can see authentic flamenco dancing, parades, floats and concerts.
Stay in Casa Romana, which is located close to Seville’s main shopping street and nightlife district. Expect elegant rooms filled with art, sculptures and classic furniture. The rooftop bar and restaurants, with comfy sofas and an abundance of greenery, welcomes guests to taste local specialities and try trendy cocktails. Watch the sunset, catch the cool breeze and admire the beautiful city below. Rooms start from £88 per night.
Rome gets incredibly busy during the peak of Summer, but by October, it quietens down and becomes the perfect destination for a traveller seeking culture, history and a little bit of sunshine.
The arts, theatre, opera and museum calendars are full at this time of the year - enjoy the city’s renowned Jazz Festival, Film Festival, or celebrate Halloween in one of the major clubs.
Make your way to Trevi Fountain, which is usually swarmed by selfie-takers in summer. Admire the fountain without so many tourists spoiling the view. Explore the many ancient ruins or even visit Vatican City, the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church.
Families and couples who are planning on doing a lot of sightseeing during their holiday should consider staying at Hotel Mancino 12, which is located right in the city centre.

Most of the main tourist sites are situated close to the port, including the Arab quarter, the Medina, just to the south. Here visitors will step back in time, discover vibrant shops, intricate architecture and peruse markets like no other. Feel, touch and smell your way around the medina; buy some spices to take home, taste the traditional food and drink mint tea whilst watching the busy locals go by.
