Travel to Europe in the off-season

Would you love to take a European vacation but are concerned about the cost?  Here are several reasons to travel in the off season.  Off season is considered to be November – April.

Trevi Fountain, Rome, Italy

Prices are lower.

Both for flights and hotels.

Because of school and business, crowds are much lighter.

No huge lines for major attractions.  Not a bunch of people in the way of your photographs.  For an even more peaceful visit, try to get to popular attractions early in the day.

Beautiful fall foliage and snowy landscapes.

This enhances the beauty of said photographs.

Relatively decent weather.

Usually the average temperature in the fall and spring runs in the 40s and 50s.  In the winter, you will experience 30s and 40s.  If the weather gets a little chilly or damp, just step inside a cozy pub or restaurant and meet some of the locals.  Such a fun experience!

If you go in late November or December, you can experience the Christmas Markets.

Enjoy the stalls with handmade decorations, gingerbread, roasted chestnuts, hot mulled wine and many other things to tempt all of your senses.  Some of the best Christmas markets are in Vienna, Austria; Nuremburg, Germany; Strasbourg, France; Florence, Italy – just to name a few. You can do river cruises that include many of the markets in the itinerary as well.
