It’s harvest time, so indulge in the local produce including chestnuts, wild mushrooms and truffles. Search for chestnuts in the Chestnut Forest and enjoy the fruits of your labor roasted with a glass of wine. 
Grab a sweater for your romantic lake cruise on a classic wood-paneled boat. Enjoy the reds and browns of the trees and discover ancient villages, churches, villas and gardens. We recommend a stop by the enchanting village of Varenna, where you can stroll along the colorful fisherman houses and visit the gardens of Villa Monastero. 
Visit the Villa del Balbianello, where the autumn colors emphasize the beauty of one of Lake Como’s most famous villas. Enjoy less crowds while meandering through antique statues, exotic plants and ornate shrubs. It’s no wonder this villa was used as a set for blockbuster movies like Star Wars and Casino Royal.
The property features a private beach, as well as a dock, allowing guests to arrive via one of the hotel’s boats, custom-built by Ernesto Riva. The 60-foot-long freshwater infinity pool suspended over the lake is without a doubt one of Il Sereno’s show-stopping features, and the large sundeck is perfect for spending a leisurely afternoon under the Italian sun.

Take a spooky ghost tour or join a haunted pub crawl and learn about the local lore. Visit Dorchester Square, which is built atop the old Saints-Antoine Cholera Cemetery, where 70,000 skeletons are buried underground. Rumor has it that spirits haunt the park!
Visit the Jean Talon Market for an unmatched culinary experience with gourmet “walkabouts”, tastings and cooking demonstrations from local restauranteurs. Procure your favorite local produce and continue with a picnic at Jarry Park!

For lovers of an epic autumn festival, the Ludwigsburg Pumpkin Festival is a must. Held annually in Baden-Württemberg, this is the largest pumpkin festival in the world, showcasing local food and art, and of course pumpkin wine! Don’t knock it until you try it! 
Take a drive on the Romantic Road, as you explore scenic pastures and forest groves turned golden with the changing season. Make a stop for some strudel, then visit the iconic Neuschwanstein Castle.  
A visit during fall is not complete without authentic Bavarian beer. Take a day trip to the world’s oldest brewery, the Weihenstephan Monastery, which began brewing beer in the year 1040. Still bottling to this day, enjoy a tasting in this historic landmark on a crisp autumn day. 
Conveniently nestled between Vienna and Munich, the property offers access to Salzburg, an international favorite that’s just a 20-minute drive away.
