8 Sweet European Escapes for Every Season

Tips on Timing Your Euro Trips by Season

Believe it or not, some things really are better in the winter:

1.) Prague, Czech Republic


Prague in the wintertime is incredibly magical and gives the city an even more mysterious feel than it already has.  Scour the many Christmas markets in Old Town Square but make sure your hands aren’t too full so you can grab a warm beverage at one of Prague’s many quaint cafés!   

Here are some fantastic hand-picked hotels just minutes from the heart of Prague:

2.) Mont Blanc, France


Dreaming of a winter wonderland?  Look no further.  Mount Blanc is the perfect escape for ski bunnies and spa lovers alike.  The French Alps is a dream for those who are looking to spend the weekend hitting the slopes and ending the day with some little ski town shopping and hot chocolate.  If you’re not a fan of snow sports then that’s no problem because Mount Blanc boasts some of the most elegant and luxurious spas in the world- so you can pamper while staying warm.

4.) Paris, France


“Paris is always a good idea”, as Audrey Hepburn once said.  She’s definitely got that one right.  Skip the large tourist crowds that usually begin to invade Paris in June and take in the City of Love with visits to the gardens and picnics beneath the cherry blossoms at the Tour Eiffel. Bon voyage!

Visit Italy this summer and find yourself swooning over the charming islands of Capri.  If you’re not taking a dip in the waters of one of Italy’s gorgeous beaches, take a trip to Venice and cool down with some delicious gelato.  These are just a few of many reasons why Italy is just exceptional during the months of summer!  And, let’s face it, wine tasting is always better in the summer and there’s no better place to do it than in the vineyards of Tuscany.  Cheers!

7.) Ireland


No matter the season, the views you will see at the windswept Cliffs of Moher will never disappoint.  But with autumn in the air, the scenery will look even more outstanding.  Ireland during this season is still mild enough to go outside and enjoy the beautiful landscape, so you can leave your hefty winter coats behind.  For more breathtaking sights in Ireland visit the Ring of Kerry, where you will find a wealth of things to see from majestic castles to spectacular lakes.   

If you’re thinking about travelling to Ireland in the autumn, look into these hot spots:

8.) Scotland


Experience Scotland during autumn and find yourself lusting after its brilliant landscapes.  Roam through the brisk air with a walk through Edinburgh’s Royal Botanical Gardens where you will see an array of beautiful shades that will be sure to please.  And of course you will not want to miss a viewing of the iconic Edinburgh Castle, which looks great any time of the year.
