Lisbon. Or book last minute and pick good weather. I've done that twice before as October can be very wet.

Malaga is surprisingly lovely.

Palma de Mallorca - you can get a train out to the north, fantastic food, great places to stay. Walkable, manageable.

Tallin.

Berlin would be top of my list though. So much to do.

Southern Spain or Madrid are warmer, Lisbon too. Budapest is lovely and reasonably priced

Berlin is amazing but I'd want more than 3 nights, Krakow is really cool, Lisbon is brilliant fun, I loved the parks and galleries in Madrid more than Barcelona but it's nice there too, Amsterdam is great if you avoid the stag party locations

We loved Bucharest at Christmas time. Not sure what the weather is like in October.

I spend the half term in the South of France. Low 20’s generally sunny. It’s a last bit of loveliness before the clocks go back.
Fly to Nice; cheap flights, quick flight, easy airport. There’s a train line that just does the coast. So pick a lovely town like Antibes, Villefranche Menton and “do” the others. Nice and Monaco are great day trips with lots to do Then you can come back for a swim and a lovely relaxing French dinner by the sea.

Both Malaga and Madrid at that time of year are great surprises. The autumn leaves in el retiro park were absolutely beautiful

Would also recommend Seville. I can't think of anywhere else that's not in Spain actually
