    It's so much better to go in the fall/winter - you don't have to deal with the hordes of tourists and its much more relaxing. If you want to spend some time in a warmer place you shoudl see about a weekend in the French Riviera or something. It won't be beach weather but it will still be in the 50s or 60s and romantic!

      Spoken like the true Canadian girl you are, lol.

      We get to 9 celsius and everyone is out washing their cars, buying spring clothes, and floating their fannies down the ganny (homemade floats down the ice filled river). I say enjoy Paris in November, it could be oh so romantic and last I checked you can eat and drink your way across a cool France just as well as a warm one.

        I think it would be romantic to stroll away the streets of Paris with your DH in the rain.
        Well said Yari! You've nearly convinced me to change my honeymoon location!!

          I was just in Paris and London this past november and it was so ROMANTIC! Yes it was cold but it didn't stop us at all if anything it made us much closer, and nothing is crowded! there is much less tourism in November and rates are better. you should still go, you will love it. we had an AMAZING time. and not a single day of rain. there are a few pictures on my blog, you can see that we are bundled up, but its still very nice out.

            Go for it girl! I think Paris would be amazing in the fall. Get a cute raincoat and galoshes to match so that you'll be excited if it rains.

                GO!!!! I've spent lots of time in Paris and Florence during the colder seasons. It's not bad. Just... cold. So take a good pair of cutie rain boots, a small WINDPROOF umbrella (big fan of the one from Sharper Image), and a decent coat and you'll be fine!!

                And if you need any help with restaurants hotels in Florence or Paris (I'm better with Florence than Paris), PM me - I've got a great list!

                      to tell you the truth, it's probably the best time to go! My family always goes to Europe in the fall since summer prices are INSANE and the weather is still semi-warm. I wouldn't worry. If it's where you want to go, then go! Good luck :)
