Travel in early November

I am going to travelling to Europe from Oct 28th to Nov 20th in Europe.
I wanted to travel to places which are not too chilly or where it's raining. Right now, I am thinking of Spain. I spent considerable time last year in Italy, Greece and Swizterland - so I don't want to be travelling back there again this year. Thanks for your time and suggestions! :)

Stay near the coast if you want milder weather. Granada can get chilly so close to the Sierra Nevada. Madrid can get cold too.
That's a rainy time in the Med. But the South East of Spain is the drier part of the country. The islands in the Med are also generally drier. But the small ones will be dead off season.

Roberto, thanks for your reply. Besides Spain which other country/countries would you recommend?

How about Austria, Prague and Germany? Do any of you reccomend these places in early November?

Nothing wrong at all except that it may fly in the face of "...not too chilly or where it's raining."

One year I was in Bavaria Germany end of Oct beginning of Nov and there was snow. A week earlier I was in Rome and it was 78 degrees. :)

One thing to keep in mind, the first week of your travel is the same time kids will be out of school for All Saints week (All Saints is celebrated on 1 November). All the kids are out of school for their "winter break" prior to the standard two week break at Christmas time. Travel is still good, but will be a little more crowded during that week since families are getting in one more vacation before winter hits.

We have also traveled to Germany and Austria in late October into early November and encountered some snow and cold temps. Due to it's location, I imagine Prague would be much the same.

I'd say Italy, Rome and south, southern Spain, Greece, Turkey, Malta will all be pretty nice even if it's not beach weather. From Rome up will likely be chilly and/or wet. North of the Alps will probably be cold for at least part of the time you're there (maybe all).
