Europe in the autumn is all about fashion and style -and food! Its when Northern cities shine.
Bologna and Turin Its all about wine, truffles and mushrooms and these 2 Northern Italian cities are all about the best gastronomy of the Dolce Vita. Explore medieval streets and markets in Bologna, enjoy the elegance of cafe culture and aperitivo in Turin. Not to mention its truffle season and the coveted white truffle can be found on the menu in many restaurants. Just make sure you can still fit into that outfit you bought in Milan!
Paris For all the poetic love for Paris in the Spring, for me nothing compares to the golden hues of Paris in November. The coziness of the cafes, the start of the roasted chestnuts on the streets, and the celebration of the Beaujolais Nouveau. The fashion houses display their best fashion of the season, and the museums abound with important art exhibitions. Paris Photo is a major event. But perhaps my favourite pass time is walking through Saint Germain and sitting in Cafe Flore in the afternoons. To me Paris in the autumn is a Parisian’s Paris.
London Come October London is the capital of art. Many of their major exhibitions open at this time and you will see world class art shows. Then there is one of the art world’s most epic annual shows, the Frieze and Frieze Masters art fair held on the manicured gardens of Regent’s Park. By November London is peppered with red ivy on many houses and pre -Christmas starts to peek in. That combined with the best city in the world for shopping and top restaurants makes London a great destination.
Milan While always stylish, Milan is at its most fashionable in September through November. With the cooling of the weather and the latest fashions in the shops and of course the Milanese giving a constant runway show with their Bella Figura looks. Milan is going through its own rebirth, throwing off that severe business feel and bringing in exciting design and attitude.
