Discover Europe in a different light


To travel Europe in winter is to see this exciting region in a different light: with all the same great sights and attractions, only without the summer crowds.

Better still, travelling in Europe in winter lets you witness the traditions of the Old World as the continent adopts a slightly different attitude and warms up during the colder months with a healthy dose of festive cheer. Christmas markets abound, selling warmed mulled wine and other seasonal specialties. Opulent old capitals have their charming streets and squares decked out in festive finery; and there is always the strong likelihood of witnessing the stunning countryside enveloped in a blanket of freshly-fallen snow.
