The article above literally contains my top recommendations for Europe in November, so hopefully a few of the choices look interesting to you. Saint Petersburg Obviously you’d have to fly to Rome and it’s worth it if you have the time. Also, Rome is a very interesting city, but it’s also rather hectic and kind of intimidating.

The intercity trains like that are pretty good with having enough space for luggage, so it shouldn’t be a problem, but you’ll obviously want to pack as light as you can and keep an eye on your things. That said, I think I would choose one or the other because if you did 4 days or so in both of them you’d be rushing around and also missing things, and most of one day would be spent flying between them. The major attractions in London are quite crowded in August, but at least it’s a good weather month and the sun doesn’t set until well after 9pm so you can see a lot.

I’m not sure what else to say other than it can rain any day of the year in Europe and the cities are quite good at dealing with it and offering shelter and indoor options. Montevideo, Oh, I just noticed that you are looking for a “day trip.” If you want to go back to London that same night then I’d definitely stay in England. -Roger, Thanks for your suggestion on Italy trip. Please advise if its OK to visit Salzburg (2 nights) and Innsbruck (2 nights). Fez, November in Italy is still fairly warm and usually pretty dry so it’s a great time to be able to see the main sights without the insane crowds of summer.

I m planning for 5 days trip to Europe in early November.. The days in London that time of year are fairly short as well, but you can still see a lot with the sun setting at 4pm. One challenge is that most trains out of London are slow, with the exception of some of the Edinburgh ones. I’m sure that tour is cheaper than it would be in summer, but another advantage is that those cities will be far less crowded with tourists when you are there than in summer.

We are planning for Italy in first week of November for 9 days, we have shortlisted Rome, Venice, Florence, for completeness of our tour we are also planning for Milan with Lake Como or any parts of Italy from Alps will be visible better. I want your honest opinion on the travel dates. You’ve only got 10 cities on your list, so saving two of them for a future trip shouldn’t be too tough. The Big 3 in Italy are Venice, Florence, and Rome, and you probably want to spend about 8 days in those. As for rain, almost all of Europe gets rain most of the year and it’s pretty evenly distributed. Nine days is also slightly long for just London and Paris, although I love both of those cities and you definitely won’t get bored. Let me know if you have any other questions. That should give you some ideas to start with. My trip starts on November 3rd in Amsterdam and and will follow the itinerary as below.

Portugal – Lisbon, Porto, Lagos? You could even do a day trip to Venice instead of Lake Como, as it’s only a bit over two hours away by train. What other places would like to suggest to add in this? Is there a particular reason why Athens doesn’t make the list for November? As for Switzerland, the summer hiking season ends around 15-October each year and many smaller hotels and restaurants close until 15-December when the ski season starts. -Roger. Thank you very much for this. I actually lived in a town in Serbia called Nis for 5 months a few years ago and things there are VERY cheap and there are almost no tourists because there are few worthwhile attractions. Roger, I could use your help. The main attraction here is the interesting architecture, and you can see all of the most famous buildings on top of the hop-on, hop-off bus tour, which is included with the Barcelona Pass. And how we can plan our visit there? Santa Ana El Salvador When my parents took me to Italy a long time ago I remember how motivated I was by getting an amazing ice cream each day. Thanks for your great insight and recommendations. Now that you mention it, it’s probably worth listing Athens at least through November in spite of the other points. The November weather in that part of Europe tends to be drab and gray quite often, but it rarely rains very hard or for long periods at a time, so it should be good enough for a bit of sightseeing.

If you were looking for a place to explore for four days I’d suggest Berlin, but if you’ve only got 2 or 3 days I think Amsterdam is easier and better. Boracay Island, That would be quite rushed, but it would still be fun. When we plan a family vacation, one of the first things we consider is transportation and lodging; how accessible will everything be from where we will be staying. Beirut Our plan is to first visit Helsinki or Copenhagen during weekend and come back to Stockholm. The Lauterbrunnen Valley next to Interlaken is where you’ll find the most stunning scenery, but the city of Lucerne is also beautiful and quite different. Prague. My general recommendation is 1 or 2 nights in Venice (it’s small and quite crowded so staying longer doesn’t really pay off), 3 nights in Florence, and 3 nights in Rome. My favorite countries to visit in Europe are Greece and Italy. Germany is also on the list, we just don’t know how difficult travel might be between the cities and what is best to see in Germany. Can you please recommend some places? Aside from Switzerland I would definitely visit Paris if you’ve not been before. Grand Cayman Avoid places with English menus out front for the best quality and value. Caracas. Dominican Republic -Roger. Recife, That sounds like a great opportunity.

Have a look at my suggestions for the best Italy itineraries for your best options. I think if you look at some of those you can choose 2 or 3 of the itineraries that interest you and then combine them together and then see where else you might go to connect them. Estonia The thing is that the hiking season ends in mid October and the ski/snow season doesn’t start until mid December so some smaller hotels and restaurants close during those two months. If a cruise doesn’t work out I’d probably just spend time in Spain. Bosnia and Herzegovina Or you could fly to Lisbon for a few days and then head down to the Algarve area on the southern coast of Portugal. Hey Roger, I must say the post as well as your reply on each comments is commendable. Lyon, I am planning to come to London in November 2019.

You could spend 3 or 4 days in Switzerland and I’d focus on the Interlaken area for most or all of that. I’m always thrilled to hear that some people find this advice useful. You could do Naples and Sorrento and even Sicily in November, but the beach areas such as the Amalfi Coast and the Isle of Capri would be chilly and mostly empty in November. I think Scotland would be a great choice as an add-on, except that in late December the days up there are very short. Thank you. If not both, is it good time to travel Italy alone? And most places have even warmer temperatures in November, so it's an ideal time to explore Cappadocia or even the southern coast along Antalya. And personally, I think Italy is in the Top 2 for European food (along with France) and I’d put Spain in the middle of the list at best. It’s really better to avoid beach resort destinations in Europe in August because they are all completely packed, but actually Paris and Rome empty out to some degree during August because so many office workers are gone. We plan on using high speed trains to get around if the max time is 3 hrs, otherwise we will fly if we can.

San Francisco, Rome, It's worth checking as November draws near to see what the situation will be. So, you can spend a low budget vacation in november in Europe with your loved one, with your friends or with your family without breaking your family budget.

New Orleans, It takes about the same amount of time as flying when you factor in airport transportation and security and all of that, but the train is more enjoyable and the scenery going through France is pretty good. And with more snow at the very tops of the mountains by then it can be really beautiful. There is no other city in the world like Venice and the smaller crowds in November will help you feel less like a herd animal. In Germany I think the best options are Berlin and Munich, although they are both very different as well.
