The medieval city of Bruges becomes one of Europe’s most beautiful cities in the fall with crimson and golden vines covering historic buildings with rich autumn hues. The colors reflected in the canals create an especially romantic scene as well as picture-perfect photo ops.

Vienna is a diverse and colorful place full of life; there are different things to see, places to go and stuff to do in different times of the year. In this set of articles, I will highlight the best seasonal events of each month. September is the month of the ceasing season – the torrent of tourists becomes a creek. Vienna can still be crowded, warm and sunny. Nevertheless, hotel rates drop with the numbers of visitors. The Heurigen wine taverns serve “Sturm” (lightly fermented grape juice) and most tourist attractions are still open. After May, September is probably the best month to travel to Vienna.
The nights are still warm, which means it’s the last opportunity to get involved in the night-time events around the city, which only happen during the summer months, and the day time temperature has dropped (just a little)
meaning that exploring during the day is not as difficult as it is during the previous couple of months. So without further ado, here’s our recommendations of things to do in Seville in September!
Bordeaux is the regional capital of Aquiaine and one of the most important ports in Europe, exporting, among other things, those glorious rich Bordeaux wines and spirits to a grateful world. Today it’s a lively, vibrant ci
ty with some of the most gracious architecture in France; good museums; top events and more than its fair share of cafes, restaurants and bars. It makes a great place for a short stay or use it as a base to explore its famous surrounding wine country.
