Fall is an amazing time to explore places without the heat of summer or tourist crowds. If you’re planning to take a trip this fall, here are some of the most exclusive holiday places to visit.
Reasons to Take a Fall Vacation
Summer may be the most popular season to take a vacation but there are lots of great reasons to plan a trip in fall instead. For one thing, the weather can actually be better for travelling and exploring during the autumn months. Without the oppressive heat of the sun, you can get out and explore new areas more comfortably. Depending on your destination, there may be an increased risk of rain but being caught in a downpour is no more likely to spoil your trip than becoming overheated or getting sunburn!
Travelling out of season is also more economical as demand is lower, meaning you may be able to increase the length of your vacation and spend longer at your destination. In the fall, you can also avoid the busy crowds of tourists and long queues for attractions. For people who love nature, autumn is the best time to have an adventure vacation and take in the breathtaking views in all their colorful glory.
The Amalfi Coast
One of the most famous spots in Italy, the Amalfi Coast makes a stunning vacation spot any time of year but early fall is a perfect time to visit as you’ll avoid the busiest crowds but still experience mild temperatures courtesy of the Mediterranean climate. This means you can still swim in the sea and enjoy your meals outdoors surrounded by the heady scent of jasmine and orange blossom. You can spend your days comfortably exploring the picturesque and winding streets of towns and villages like Sorrento, Atrani and Positano, where many famous movies have been shot.
Located just off the coast of East Africa, the Seychelles islands are one of the most beautiful tropical vacation destinations in the world and ideal for people who want to escape reality to experience a slice of paradise.

A vacation here can be as laid-back or adventurous as you like, thanks to the nation’s beautiful beaches and crystal clear waters and the wide variety of activities on offer, from hiking trails with breathtaking views to world-class scuba diving, snorkelling and sailing.
The French capital is world-famous as ‘the city of love’ and autumn is a particularly beautiful time to visit Paris thanks to the beautiful fall colors on display and the joie de vivre in the air.

After experiencing all the culture the city has to offer, you can also indulge in one of the best cuisines in the world.
