With winter fast approaching and your coats out, are you dreaming? Nothing like a little trip to recharge the batteries. But where to go in November? Here are a few ideas for a getaway to recharge your batteries!
Where to go in November to go out in the sun?
In Sicily, just a two-hour flight from Paris, the temperatures are still mild in November and the sun is well and truly shining on this beautiful Mediterranean island. The Sicilian way of life is all yours, with villages with flowered streets along the seafront and terraces of bright white cafés where la dolce vita takes on its full meaning while you enjoy a good espresso or a smooth limoncello
If you're craving sunshine and warm seas, head for the Dominican Republic, a Caribbean hot spot to fill up on warmth in winter. It offers beautiful beaches and almost permanent sunshine. Fine sand, transparent and turquoise water, the island has all the ingredients to meet the most beautiful postcard clichés. Without forgetting seaside resorts such as Punta Cana where all-inclusive hotels are very good value for money! Here's something to brighten up in November
Florida is another destination where you can gild the pill in November. Between Miami Beach and its dream beaches, those of the Keys where you can discover beautiful seabeds or those of the west coast far from mass tourism, you will have a wide range of choices in terms of beach tourism! And when you get tired of the beach, the amusement parks of Orlando, Seaworld, Disney World and Universal Studios will take your mind off it
Where can you go in November to go green?
Head for the island of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands to hike in slightly warmer temperatures than in France! Lanzarote is rich with a desert of volcanic sand that covers the island and contrasts with the red of its hills. The landscape of Lanzarote was created capriciously by lava from volcanic eruptions throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. It has thus acquired a rare and attractive beauty, which offers a great contrast with its sandy beaches and sites where vegetation grows as if by magic. The island is made up of volcanic caves and lava lakes, pink soils, lit and sublimated by a permanent sun that offers luminosity and clarity. All that is needed to make superb hikes!
Another dream destination for nature lovers: Vietnam. This country benefits from an extraordinary variety of landscapes from north to south. Rice terraces, bamboo forests, heavenly white sandy beaches, dizzying waterfalls, marble mountains, majestic temples, colourful markets such as in Muong Khuong, Vietnam knows how to receive, all wrapped up under a bright sun and in a luxuriant tropical vegetation.
For those who wish to stay in France, the Queyras region in the Hautes-Alpes is perfect for getting some fresh air. The Queyras Regional Nature Park is a concentrate of nature and tranquillity with mountain landscapes, meadows, peaks at over 3,000 metres that are still accessible and villages with character. Here's something to breathe in and get out of the gloom of November!
Where to go in November for an exotic city trip?
Direction Rome, the eternal city of which we never tire of finally as it is so beautiful and rich in superb heritage! The Italian capital has so much to offer without leaving far from Paris and for rates that are very reasonable in November, the low season. Colosseum, Saint Peter's Basilica, Palatine, Trevi Fountain... So many visits that will change your daily life! And to regain your strength, the famous Italian gastronomy will be at the rendezvous on every street corner. Let yourself be tempted by a plate of pasta or a melting burrata?
For an original city trip, head for Dresden in Germany. This city often unknown to the French may well surprise you! Beyond its picturesque historic centre, the city's innumerable museums will seduce aesthetes and science lovers alike, not forgetting the sublime Zwinger, a true jewel of Baroque architecture, or the Saxon National Opera, undoubtedly one of the most beautiful lyrical theatres in the world. Dresden is also a rich alternative scene full of creativity; the Neustadt on the north bank of the Elbe bears witness to this dynamism with its decorated inner courtyards, crafts, cafés and unbridled nightlife.
Another culturally interesting city, but probably sunnier in November: Thessaloniki in Greece. It's good to come to Thessaloniki, especially if you love art. With some thirty museums, 23 centuries of history, this city of 1 million inhabitants, and its international airport, has nothing to envy Athens... except, of course, a certain notoriety. Note: at the beginning of November, the city hosts the annual Thessaloniki International Film Festival with a very nice international program and films that the general public can see for a small fee.
We're entering the festive season. By the end of November, you can already enjoy Christmas decorations all over Europe. Take the opportunity to visit the most beautiful Christmas markets in Europe.
