Considering traveling to Europe but on the fence during these colder months? Well, wonder no more. Here are 7 Reasons to Travel to Europe in the Winter.
1. IT’S LESS EXPENSIVE
Hotels and attractions often have low-season prices in winter. For example, staying in a hotel in Venice during winter will have double the room rates in the summer! Enjoy these rates in the low season while you can!
2. IT’S MUCH LESS CROWDED
People tend to travel less in the winter, so you can enjoy seeing the Mona Lisa without all the crowds and headaches. Enjoy frolicking among ancient architecture like it's your own personal playground!
3. MANY OF THE ATTRACTIONS ARE INDOORS, ANYWAY
Art galleries, wine tastings, culinary classes, architecture tours, and more... all of which are indoors, will still be open in the off-season-- with lower fees to boot!
4. ENJOY WINTER SPORTS
Embrace the winter months skiing, snowboarding, snow shoeing. There is nothing more exhilarating than being in the elements in some of the most historic places in the world!
5. CHRISTMAS MARKETS AND LOCAL FOOD
Europe is the home of some of the world’s most amazing Christmas markets. Enjoy locally crafted cuisine and beverages, artisan made gifts, and feel that holiday nostalgia in its truest form!
6. IT’S EASIER TO BE SPONTANEOUS
During the off-season, you don't need to book accommodations far in advance. Many events that happen in the winter are open to random guests at any given time!
