The Perfect Seasons to Make Europe Yours
This is when savvy travelers go
The crowds have gone. In the north, Christmas Markets begin to pop up, and mulled wines warm cold hands. In the south, no one bothers to change out of their summer wear, and the sun shines down on golden beaches. Somewhere in between, flowers bloom in a riot of colors across wide fields.
This is Europe, between late fall and early spring. These are the seasons for experienced travelers like you.
What draws savvy travelers to Europe during these times of year?
These are the same beautiful destinations that you want to see, except you’re traveling at non-peak seasons.
The touristy crowds thin out, and there’s more time to soak in the local culture alongside the people that call that destination home.
Must-Sees with Smaller Crowds
Museum lines shrink. The crowds of photo-takers taper off at the iconic sites. Take advantage of smaller crowds.
