Fall is the most colorful time of year, and, therefore, you must spend as much time as possible outside enjoying its romantic tones. Apart from the incredible colors that fall displays, there are a few more reasons to travel overseas during this period of the year is better for you. Firstly, it’s more budget-friendly than traveling in summer, no crowded places, and pleasant temperatures. Many experienced travelers prefer to take their holiday during the fall because they can still visit the most famous of the world’s destinations, but avoid millions of tourists. When traveling in fall, you can often get the feeling that the place you visit is only yours.

Greece is a popular tourist destination throughout the year, that’s why the best time to visit one of its islands or the northern Aegean coast is in fall. You will be surprised by the low prices offseason and you’ll enjoy being by the warm and calm sea. Having a Greek salad with loads of olives in one of the typical tavernas is a real treat for gourmands. You can rent an entire villa and enjoy the sunsets from a yard full of fig and olive trees.

How exciting does this sound? All Agatha Christie fans will vote for this one. Flying to Cairo in fall is cheaper than going there in summer. Plus, the temperatures are lower which will allow you explore the area without being worried that you’ll pass out on the sun. A river cruise is always a romantic way to get to know a new country, but doing it in Egypt is the best experience you can ever have.

On the journey, you’ll get to see old temples, the Valley of Kings, and when in Cairo, you can go and visit the pyramids. There are some places on Earth that you shouldn’t miss at any cost.

Maybe Europe isn’t home to the world’s largest lakes, but it can be proud of the most beautiful alpine lakes on the planet. Most of them are located in the Central Alpine region. You should start in Switzerland, known for its dramatic lakeside sceneries. After visiting Zurich, Lucerne, Geneva, and Maggiore head to Lake Garda in Italy and then visit Lake Annecy in France. To finish the lake tour, head to the Balkans to enjoy the fantastic nature of Lake Bled in Slovenia and go on down to Macedonia to Ohrid Lake.

Our world is a beautiful place, and it would be a pity if we didn’t manage to see at least some of it during a lifetime. Choose your favorite place and book a flight. Good luck!
