It may be autumn now, but the end of September is actually a great time to visit Italy. It's not too hot, the water is still warm and you're almost guaranteed to get a beach chair. What could be better? 📷 by @lucylaucht
Around Bavaria's Lake Tegernsee—just one hour from Munich—wildflowers blanket the Alpine meadows, the dairy cows roam free, lederhosen are worn unironically, and "locally made" is a way of life. Follow along on our Stories today as photographer @andreagentl takes us on a tour of this region of Germany, and see the full #InspirationIssue story thru the link in bio.
In our minds, the first week of fall looks like this.
Sri Lanka is something of a three-in-one destination: you've got historic and cultural sites worthy of Kyoto, a Serengeti-level safari, and an Amalfi-caliber beach vacation. Ready to plan a trip? Get your guide thru the link in bio. 📸 @jeromegalland
Virtually no one knows Umbria like Italian designer Brunello Cucinelli, whose whisper-weight cashmere scarves and fine-gauge sweaters speak of his deep respect for the region and it’s people.

It's officially autumn! And although we're sad to see summer end, we know one thing: It's also officially long weekend season. There are the classic fall trips, like foliage pilgrimages to New England and apple picking in Central New York But this year, we're also looking to explore beyond the Northeast, so we rounded up a list of getaways that covers everything from Mexico's mid-Pacific coast to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We're breaking it all down in this week's #TraveloguePodcast hosted by @bradrick (listen at the link in bio!) And don't worry, we'll cover your leaf-peeping fix—but there's no reason why you can't hit the beach, too. 🍂 📸 @paolaandmurray
Lined with fine 17th-century mansions, Ile Saint Louis—the smaller of the Seine’s islands—is like a tranquil Paris in miniature. The main street, rue Saint-Louis en Île, boasts art galleries, lovely boutiques, and one of the best butcher shops in town. What better place to practice the French art of flânerie (also known as strolling)? Our perfect afternoon there goes like this: Buy a scoop of Berthillon ice cream—the salted butter caramel flavor is our favorite—then linger on the bridge linking the islet to its big sibling, Île de la Cité. Best day ever. Head to the link in bio for even more of our Paris faves. 📸 @alexandrine_ar
Forget whatever it is you think you know about what there is to do in Washington, D.C. Yes, America’s capital city is brimming with memorials, museums, and watering holes for high-powered politicos. But there's much more than monuments and politics driving the energy here. Residents will tell you it's supremely livable, full of leafy, trail-filled parks, hip food markets and breweries, state-of-the-art rock venues, and tiny jazz clubs—to say nothing of the booming dining scene of recent years. There are stellar options on and off the beaten path when you're in town, and really, something for everyone.

Europe's home to some of the world's smallest countries, from Vatican City and its artistic masterpieces to the pristine Faroe Islands. And for the traveler who's seen it all, visiting one of these spots is a great way to escape city life, get back into nature, and enjoy the small things in life. We're rounding up our favorite small countries at the link in bio, and we're telling you how to get there, too. Happy travels!
Eighteen miles and a world away from Lisbon, it’s easy to see why Sintra—with its cool, lush hills and proximity to the Atlantic coast—is where Portuguese royals used to spend their summers. Today, the concentration of these former regal estates and equally fanciful gardens has turned this UNESCO World Heritage site into a popular day-trip destination—and we love it for its envy-inducing paint colors, too.

If cities were romances, Cape Town would be the love-at-first-sight kind: That first glimpse of Table Mountain from the sky, presiding over a gently curving coastline lapped by brilliant blue waters, is an image that leaves you instantly hooked. But there’s plenty to pull you in long after landing, from its chic hotels, world-class restaurants, and thriving art scene, to its dazzling cultural diversity and rich, if complex, history. Each day in the Mother City will see you unearthing new details that will have you falling in love all over again. See it all in our brand new Cape Town city guide, all at the link in bio. 📸 @craighowes
