Europe in autumn

Paris in springtime is lovely, but autumn shines brightly throughout Europe, when oppressively hot temperatures in the Mediterranean have all but disappeared and crisp nights greet the northern and alpine regions. Unlike those April showers, fall is often quite dry, perfect for one more bike ride through a series of Belgian villages, paddling across a lake beneath the Alps or joining a fall wine crush in the south of Spain. However you intend to spend your autumn holiday abroad, these European destinations will add plenty of color to your experience.

Was in Prague in Jan 2012 and I must say I think it is the most beautiful city in the world and I have been to all of the European capitals and most of the others as well... If you are thinking about it... Quit thinking and go now!!   I promise you won't regret it..  Skip the Old Jewish cemetery,,,, a rip off,,, long lines,,, tour takes two minutes to walk around a small courtyard with old headstones.. Other than that... Absolutely fantastic place to visit.... Go Now!!

Ahhhhh, Praha, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Spent 10 days there on vacation. IMO, the zoo is the best in the world.

I'm sad not to see any of the Baltic republics on the list. Riga (in Latvia) and the Gauja national park are gems in the fall.
