Find the best rates for your travel plans and experience European food, culture and history.
For gourmet food lovers, there are various fall festivals celebrating food and wine in Italy. Most of Italians take their vacation during August, so in summertime shops and restaurants are very likely to be closed, but they are re-opened in autumn. Truffles are the centerpiece of restaurant menu. In October and November there are numerous truffle fairs throughout northern and central Italy. Other fairs and festivals include wine degustation, theater and opera performances, donkey races etc.
For a traveler who seeks for adventure, autumn is the perfect season. A tour to Denmark and Greenland may be the right choice: Reindeer Safari or an overnight in an igloo can guarantee a good time and unforgettable experience. And perhaps a unique journey through Iceland’s underground caves and craters may be the reason to visit Reykjavik.
Rainy weather should not bother anyone who intend to spend a whole day visiting museums and having a meal at a local restaurant. But, there are some tips that could make an off-season traveling more joyful and pleasant. For example, when thinking about packing, the key is layering. The weather is very likely to be changeable, unpredictable and cool, so it is good to have more light clothes and to wear and combine them in order to feel as comfortable as possible. The fact is there are fewer sunny days and hours, but earlier sunsets mean more tome to explore the romantic side of cities after dark. In many European cities historic monuments are enlighten so sightseeing the city at night can be beautiful and enchanting.
