Best Time To Visit Europe
Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination
Europe may not be among the largest continents but it has a highly varied geography. So, the climate of Europe is different as per the region from sunny Mediterranean isles to arctic Norwegian fjords. The best time to visit Europe changes as per geography and climate patterns across its 45 countries. Western Europe experiences an oceanic climate, southern Europe witnesses a Mediterranean climate, and Eastern Europe has a continental climate. This beautiful continent is truly a year-round destination for an ideal vacation, where any season is the best time to go to Europe. Travelers can narrow down travel dates as per the best time for Europe tour and things to do in Europe.
Be it the coast of Mediterranean or the alps in Italy, Europe in winter is as magical as any other destination in the world. Some destinations in Europe are notoriously expensive during the summer months due to busy season. In the shoulder seasons of Spring and Fall, the crowds are smaller and hotel prices are reasonable. Here's a detailed season-wise look at the ideal time to visit Europe:
Climate in Europe
Summer Season in Europe
Summer in Europe is considered the best time to visit Europe for holiday. Months of May through September are ideal to visit Europe. It is when the hotel and flight prices are reasonable, tourist attractions are less crowded, and temperatures are pleasant. The weather in Europe during summer months is by and large agreeable. Summer in Europe is not as sweltering as the summer in India. July and August are usually the most hotter and popular months to travel in Europe. Rome, Florence, Paris, London, and Madrid are popular places to visit in Europe in June. Although daytime temperatures are mostly bearable, except along the Mediterranean coast. Most outdoor festivals in Europe are celebrated in the summer season, making it the best time to travel to Europe. Also, several fairs and other cultural events in cities in Europe make summer the best season to visit Europe.
Weather Tip: Southern Europe is known for heat waves in the peak of summer season. So, keep hydrated and apply sunscreen to avoid UV exposure.
Monsoon Season in Europe
Monsoon in Europe is known as the Return of the Westerlies. The western winds from the Atlantic Ocean cause rainfall along North Atlantic coastline and in Scandinavian nations. The wet season in Europe usually lasts from October through March or April. While the areas in Alps Mountains witness rainfall in the summer season, lower regions in Europe experience rainfall in November and December. For those wondering when to go to Europe, rest assured as the shoulder seasons of spring and fall are also the best time to visit Europe on a budget. In these seasons, hotel rates and flight tickets are usually lower in most of the continent.
Weather Tip: Do not forget to carry light jackets or windcheater jackets as the weather can be unpredictable in monsoon.
Winter Season in Europe
Winter in Europe is a sight to behold. Whether it is skiing on the slopes of the Alps or Christmas vibes in Paris, winter is surely the best time to visit Europe for honeymoon. While the coldest temperatures are mostly found in Russia and Eastern Europe, milder winters in the continent can be enjoyed in Southern Europe. One should not look further than Europe in winter if one is looking to enjoy skiing and snowboarding in the Alps. Shopping in Christmas markets is a popular things to do in Europe in December. Travelers can explore glaciers in Norway, witness the Northern Lights in Iceland, and spend the New Year’s Eve in Vienna. Spring, from March to May, is also an ideal time to visit Europe as travelers can go on sightseeing, hiking, and other outdoor activities.
Weather Tip: Since the winter season is really cold in Europe, make sure to pack woollens for a trip to countries in Northern and Western Europe.

Trip to EuropeFirst of all my personal thanks to the TravelTraingle team.This whole concept of personalized tour is so great. I had been to Europe once hence it was very easy for me to do a personalised tour. The travel agent in my case were very responsive. I was simply amazed by the level and quality of service provided by them. All the bookings were prompt and I didn't face any trouble anywhere. Definitely recommended. My next trip will definitely be planned through these guys. U guys rock. Cheers!!!! This is the best time to visit Switzerland and the Nordic countries.
Trip to EuropeOverall it was an excellent tour of Vienna, Budapest and Prague. Some point of improvement for the agent or things which can be taken care by new travelers... 1. Searching for cab driver after landing at the Vienna airport was tough. 2.Rooms of Ramada encore in Vienna and IBIS in Budapest were very small. 3. There was no electric water heating machine ( used for tea/coffee) in IBIS-Budapest and Fortuna west-Prague, so it was little problem for us. 4. Fortune-West hotel in Prague was far away from the main city. 5.We should have been informed that exchange price in India is best as compared to European countries. Excellent response time, proactive and very professional. Special Appreciation to Agent- Daman, who designed my entire itinerary and made all the bookings

Trip to EuropeIt was a long planned trip to Europe , comprising of 3 main countries (France , Switzerland & Italy) in 12 days. Started off with multiple vendors and their quotes , but finally selected Hub Holiday based on my interaction with Rohit and Prashanth. The rates which were given to me was highly competitive. Thumbs up to it. PROS : ===== 1) First and Foremost , Highly competitive rates. 2) Excellent response time from Prashanth , not only before the start of the trip but also during trip. There was one case where I did not have a connecting train ticket printout with me in Venice Railway station. Got response within 30 sec from Prashant and got the ticket. Hats off to that. 3) Support during changed requirements was nicely handled. After initial plan , I requested changes for inclusion of PISA. It was excellently managed. Thumbs up. 4) Politeness of the persons in Hub Holiday. Every interaction of mine was handled with utmost sincerity. Good job. IMPROVEMENT AREAS (I will not say CONS as these people are new to travel organizing compared to other agents) =================== 1) I think , practical knowledge about the countries are really needed ( not only google / blog study ) for an effective itinerary creation. There were several instances where the station / bus stop is far from hotel , without even us knowing how to reach. Even though we managed with Google Maps and other ways , but for older and not-to-tech-savvy people , it might not be easy. So either detailed guideline or easy transport details should be given during travel voucher sending ( this i even asked , but did not get ) 2) Best transport options suggestion really would help a first time traveler. For example , in both Paris and Rome Hop-On Hop Off buses are waste of money. Much better option is to get Metro Tickets in bulk and use them for transportation. They are much cheap as well as very fast , so saving both money and time. These suggestions should be given and recommended. 3) Louvre / Vatican City etc. museums are always recommended to be visited with guides , or else it will just be some idols / arts without knowing what exactly are they. I felt , if we were told these things before hand explicitly , maybe we would have got better deal. Actually in Vatican , I had to book on-spot-guides , which is much more costly compared to prebooking of guides from Vatican itself. 4) VISA Planning : This was really scary for us. Even though i enquired with Rohit and asked him about VISA , his initial suggestion was 1 to 1.5 month was more than enough for Shenzhen VISA. But later we came to know , for some countries like Italy , it is always better to apply 3 months in advance as they take long time to issue VISA . For us , we received our VISA just 5 days before our travel, which was really scary. We even asked Prashant not to book any other vouchers like Eiffel Tower and other things. This resulted in , in last moment , we did not get online slots to book ticket at all and finally after reaching Paris , I had to book it separately. So these things needs to be handled in better way by guiding the first time travelers. Overall the trip went well and we were able to visit all the places as PLANNED. A Big Thank you to Prashant and team. Wish to get in touch with Hub Holiday again in future.
