From the serene South of France to the foliage-filled landscapes of Great Britain and Ireland to the scenic Adriatic Coast, the season's vibrant colors enhance the appeal of the best autumn destinations in Europe.
Picture-perfect Provence, France
The landscapes of this region, which inspired artists like Van Gogh, Cézanne and Picasso, take on a golden hue as autumn settles in. September through November in this region is the harvest time for grapes, mushrooms, truffles and more. You'll find many of these delicious seasonal fruits and vegetables in outdoor markets and at local festivals in Provençal villages and cities like Aix-en-Provence and Avignon.

Taste local culture in Great Britain and Ireland
A hearty regional meal is one of our favorite ways to warm up. From vegetable soup to steak and kidney pie, many well-loved dishes in this region are served hot. Be sure to try Irish stew, made with lamb, potatoes and onions, traditionally cooked for several hours over an open fire. In England, sit down for a Sunday dinner of roast beef with roasted potatoes and Yorkshire pudding, a baked side dish made with a batter of egg, flour and milk. Another great way to get a feel for the culture is by popping into a pub with your fellow travelers and sampling a real ale or local cider.
