Dreaming of escaping the UK for an autumn break? Luckily the travel pro team at loveholidays has rounded up this year’s top autumn holiday destinations for any Brits looking to get away.

The team looked at average temperatures, rainfall and prices for accommodation and flights to find the best options for Britons this autumn.

Puglia, a southern Italian region which forms the heel of Italy’s ‘boot’, topped the rankings as this year’s best autumn holiday destination.

The diverse region has pretty whitewashed hill towns, a vast coastline and Baroque architecture. It’s under a three hour flight to Bari, Puglia’s capital, from the UK.

Otranto, a coastal town, is one of Puglia’s top destinations and is known for 11th century Otranto Cathedral and gorgeous beaches.

‘David L’ said: “Great place to walk around seeing shops, restaurants, bars and a beautiful castle. Walking areas along the water at night is wonderful.”

According to loveholidays, the average price of a package holiday per person per night is £54 while the lowest autumn temperature is 11 degrees.
