Best time to visit Europe

Visit Europe in the spring for warm days and cool nights. Summer brings longer days and lovely weather, but can be busy August is when locals escape for their annual holiday. Fall in Europe brings the changing colours and fewer crowds. Winter is best for avid skiers and bargain hunters.

Peak Season: Most visitors from the U.S. explore Europe in the spring and summer months. Early fall tends to be busy in popular convention areas, and rates can be higher during this time.

Value Season: Winter and early spring see fewer travellers, and can be a great time to visit if you're looking for discounted flights and hotel rates.
