1. Best Places to Visit in November: Venice, Italy

The magical beauty and charm of Venice always awaits you, but there is something really special about the floating city in November. Don’t be fooled into choosing a destination based on weather conditions, because November is one of the best times to come here. Can you imagine how incredibly romantic it is taking a ride in a gondola whilst everything is shrouded in fog around you? No, you must experience it!

Venice shrouded in fog looks like a watercolour painting, painted with very gentle brush strokes. The streets are almost deserted, the narrow canals are all quiet and everything is unimaginably peaceful. Meanwhile in the morning a white blanket of fog covers the city, during the day it dissolves, giving way to the warm sunlight.

November offers you an exceptional opportunity to discover the landmarks, buildings and secrets of the city and to have an insight into the history of Venice. Discover small canals, hidden spots, legends and secret stories with the Real Hidden Venice walking tour. What is so special about it is that it is off the beaten track! The informative and enthusiastic guides take you to hidden places which you normally would not find on your own. Therefore, we highly recommend you to sign up for this eye opening experience!

2. Mexico

If you crave for a destination for culture and heritage, Mexico definitely has to be on your list in November. On the 1st and 2nd of November they celebrate Mexico’s most colourful annual event, the Day of the Dead.

It should not be confused with Halloween though! The Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) is a UNESCO honoured Mexican holiday and it’s about life-affirming joy. For Mexicans death is a natural part of the lifecycle. It’s all about showing respect for their deceased loved ones and keeping them alive in their memory and spirit. During these two days funky makeup, costumes, parade, colourful flowers, sugar skull paintings invade the towns and cities throughout Mexico. It’s better to celebrate in the southern part of the country, since the holiday has richer history in southern regions.

Be part of this colourful and moving celebration!
