Tuscany conjures up visions of idyllic towns, rolling green hills, and fields of flowers. Without a doubt, it’s the region of Italy most known to visitors from abroad. Students on fall vacation from college can discover the production processes for regional wines, truffle-hunt in the lush Tuscan forests, and feast on delicious Italian food. The best time to book a fall break package is from SeptemberOctober when the weather is warm during the day and cool at night.  

Novosibirsk, Russia

Novosibirsk maintains the character and charm of a small town, but it’s the largest city in Siberia with a population of more than 1.6 million people. The Siberian capital may be notorious for its harsh, below-freezing winters, but from mid-September to mid-October the sun is shining. A favorite fall vacation idea for young people is bathing in the refreshing waters of the Ob River. Away from the river, students can witness the beauty of performing arts at the Opera and Ballet Theatre, the largest in Russia. One of the most underrated fall locations, this is the perfect spot to form student group travel experiences.

The Fujikawaguchiko Autumn Leaves Festival showcases the natural beauty of this peak whose surrounding is drenched in spectacular red colors and tranquil crystal water during the fall travel season.

Hartmannsdorf, Austria

While the rolling hills are beautiful during all seasons, Hartmannsdorf is at its peak during the autumn months. All roads lead to the central church’s 118 ft (36 m) tower, which is especially evident as the trees start dropping their leaves.
