The travel band is finally over so pack up your suitcase and get yourself a plane ticket, cause we’re going to France! From Paris to the South of France, you really can’t go wrong. Fall might be one of the best times to visit France as the weather is comfortable and the beautiful colors of the foliage illuminate the cities. Read below to find out my top 5 suggestions for a France fall voyage!
Oui, Oui, Paris! The capital city of France is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. It is especially beautiful in the fall when the colorful foliage decorates the entire city. In Paris, the Luxembourg Gardens, the Tuileries Gardens, and Parc Buttes Chaumont are the perfect places to visit in the fall. There are also plenty of events that take place in Paris during the fall season and all the museums are open and tourist free!
2. Aix-en-Provence, Provence
If you’re looking to enjoy the last of the summer sun and wine, Provence is the place for you. Because it is located in the Southern region of France, this city stay warm for much longer than places further North. Surrounded by Vineyards, and filled with shops and restaurants, Aix is the city to visit in the fall. While you’re there, don’t forget to check out the local markets and walk along the Cezanne walking trail.
3. Brittany Coastline, Brittany
There is no better time to visit the shores of Brittany than in the fall. Although the weather can sometimes be rainy, the smaller crowd and beautiful beaches make this a prime fall destination. While you’re there, make sure to visit the walled city of Saint-Malo and if you’re a history geek, you’ll find the medieval history of this city fascinating.
4. Toulouse, Occitanie
Fall is the best time to visit this “pink city” as it is right after peak season when the weather is still warm but the crowds are scarce. I recommend checking out the UNESCO-listed brick building of the Basilique Saint-Sernin and the Place du Capitole.
5. Loire Valley, Pays de la Loire
The chateaux of the Loire Valley are the best to visit during the fall months. I recommend visiting the Chateau de Chambord and Chateau Chenonceau. While the Loire Valley is an easy day trip from Paris, I definetely recommend staying there for a weekend in Blois and Chartres.
Voilà! I hope you enjoyed reading about my favorite Fall spots. Let me know if you end up traveling to any of these beautiful destinations and what you think by commenting below or tagging us @ouiplease on instagram.
