Don’t forget about the benefits of travelling to Europe in winter – its off-season.

Local Living


As the pace slows in winter everyone has more time to share stories. Sink into the local culture as you are visiting neighbourhood markets or sitting in a cosy cafés. Also experience the holiday festival and markets that are a tradition.

Get Closer


With smaller crowds comes the chance to spend time with the Mona Lisa and marvel at the work of Michelangelo. Take advantage of this sometimes underappreciated off-season perk.

Winter Cuisine


There is something a little more satisfying when there’s a tinge of cold in the air. Warm yourself with a bowl of beef bourguignon or some hot chocolate.

Mild Temps


Many parts of Europe are relatively warm in the winter. From the sun you’ll find in Spain and Portugal to comfortable days in Italy, it’s the best time weather wise to visit.
