Unique City Trips in September 2022: Great Cities for a September City Trip!

Written by Jimmy Rustling

Fancy a nice city trip in September 2022? It is around this time that most people start planning their fall holidays. Autumn is the perfect season for a fun city trip! Whether you are looking for a sunny city trip, a romantic city trip or a cheap city trip in September, we have collected a number of great destinations and offers for you. Opt for lively Lisbon, sun, sea and culture in Alexandria or sit down at the beer tables at the Rome! Here are the coolest cities for your trip in September.


With more than 3300 hours of sunshine per year, Alexandria is one of the sunniest destinations in the Mediterranean. The city is hip, and bustling and is the perfect destination for a city trip combined with sun, sea, beach or a longer tour through the rest of Egypt. Alexandria guarantees delicious food, enjoy long evenings (together with the locals) on the promenade or the beach and nights dancing in the many entertainment hotspots. The city also has a lot to offer in terms of history and culture.  Despite the great advantages that Alexandria enjoys, it is difficult to enjoy casino games in this eastern city. Instead of going to one of the illegal gambling halls, you can enjoy playing real money roulette on your smartphone or tablet.

Why Sept? In September it is still nice and warm (average 29 degrees) in Alexandria, but a cooling autumn breeze provides a bit of cooling.


Marrakesh one of the four royal cities of Morocco and in recent years increasingly popular as a city trip destination. Not bad! Because the city is fairytale-like and exotic, turns your senses upside down and leaves you in complete amazement. Marrakech is a real trading city and you will notice that when you wander through the medina: the old walled city and the historic centre. Here you will find hundreds of souks with typical Moroccan merchandise; from herbs and woven bags to oil lamps and leather shoes, you will not get bored in this maze of streets and squares. On the edge of the medina is the Djemaa el Fna square; during the day very quiet but by the evening it turns into the bustling heart of the city including snake charmers, magicians and the most delicious street food. Other must-sees in the city are the urban garden Jardin Marjorelle,

Why Sept? The continental climate ensures hot summers and even mild winters in Marrakech. In September it can still be 30 degrees, but the worst heat is over. Would you rather visit the city when it is a bit cooler? Then choose November or December.


Istanbul buzzes, vibrateS, and never stands still. The busy bazaars, typical minarets, views over the Bosphorus, the world-famous Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia, and the Topkapi Palace; there is so much to see in Istanbul that you will probably run out of eyes (and time!). Relax, you don’t have to. Stroll around at your own pace, find a bench to rest for a while and watch the street life with shoe shiners, bread sellers, market traders, coffee drinkers and fishermen on the Bosphorus. Book a real Turkish hammam to completely relax and enjoy the cool nightclubs in Beyoğlu during the night.

Why Sept? The best travel time for a city trip to Istanbul is spring and autumn. The average temperature in September is around 25 degrees; great weather to explore the city.


September is a perfect month for a city trip to Lisbon! Although the city is of course beautiful all year round, temperatures can be very high in summer. In September it is still nice and warm, but you can explore the city without the risk of being overwhelmed by the heat. Keep your bags safe with luggage storage Lisbon while you explore this beautiful city. Lisbon has a wonderful vibe, beautiful small cozy streets, cute trams that brave the seven hills in peace, but also impressive squares, cathedrals, statues, shopping boulevards and many viewpoints. The nicest neighbourhoods are Bairro Alto full of cozy restaurants and wine bars and Alfama; the oldest district of Lisbon and the cradle of fado music. Interesting buildings to see are the neo-Gothic Elevador de Santa Justa, the Torre de Belém and the Castelo de São Jorge.

Why Sept? The late summer in Lisbon is more than pleasant: during the day an average temperature of 27 degrees, in the evening even more than fine terrace weather and the sea water is still around 20 degrees; perfect to combine your city trip with a day at the beach in Estoril or Cascais!


You can also celebrate autumn in Valencia! Without a coat and scarf (28 degrees is very normal in this time), but with delicious roasted chestnuts that you can buy everywhere on the street and fantastic truffle and mushroom dishes in the countless fine restaurants. Valenciais a fantastic city anyway. Ancient culture and authentic city neighbourhoods blend effortlessly into the modern and futuristic buildings of Ciudad de las Artes de las Ciencas (the City of Arts and Sciences). This complex consists of 7 buildings, including a science museum, an IMAX theatre and the largest marine aquarium in Europe, surrounded by a park and ponds. The city is ideal to discover by bike! And while you’re pedalling, stop at the Mercado Central, La Lonja, the cathedral or park for a day on one of the lovely city beaches.

Why Sept? Lovely weather, good food, beach… what more could you want just before winter starts again?


Did you know that September is the month that the South Moravian wine towns in the Czech Republic celebrate the new vintage? Prague of course participates in this; the very young wine (which is treacherously easy to drink) is on sale in the shops until late and there is singing and dancing. In addition, it is simply also very good to stay in one of the most beautiful capitals in Europe, in every season. When the sun is still shining, look for the cozy terraces or biergartens, enjoy a Burgundian meal in the many restaurants and of course visit the Staré Město with the old town square, the town hall and the large astronomical clock, the golden street, the Charles Bridge and the famous Prague Castle.

Why Sept? The chance of good weather is still high, it is nice and cheap and less crowded.


Take good shoes with you when you go on a city trip to Romebooks; after a few days you will have a lot of miles on your legs. Because of the many antiquities in the ground, there are only two metro lines, but fortunately, the city is quite walkable. Not so keen on this, are you? Then take one of the many hop-on hop-off buses. Rome is one big open-air museum and you may need more than a city trip to really get to know the city. The famous Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, the Vatican City, Castel Sant’Angelo, the Vittorio Emanuele monument and the Pantheon are just a few of the many impressive sights that the city has. And then there’s the wonderful, chaotic street life of Rome, the atmospheric squares and streets, the excellent restaurants and the iconic espresso bars. You must have seen Rome.

Why Sept? Mild temperatures, lots of sun and shorter queues for sights.
