These are the top European destinations to visit in September, October, and November. Visiting Europe in the autumn means less tourists and lower prices. Off-season adventurers enjoy step-right-up service at shops and tourist offices, and experience a more European Europe. For many, fall conjures up images of freshly baked apple pies, Halloween parties, and falling leaves turning countless shades of gold in the crisp air of a September morning. For others, it means low travel prices, lesser crowds, cultural city breaks, flamboyant food festivals, and harvest season in Italy and France.
