What are the best periods for travelling in Europe?
Winter is probably one of the least crowded periods, although Christmas Fairs all over Europe are starting to attract more and more tourists. If you travel in winter to avoid the tourist hoards, don’t go to Vienna, for example (although the city is very beautiful during winter).
It goes without saying that places where you can ski are also very crowded in winter!
During preseason – I would recommend Croatia, Italy, Greece, southern France, Spain, Turkey, Iceland and Portugal. You will get a chance not only to discover amazing places, but to enjoy everything in a less crowded situation.
I think low season is the traveler’s heaven. Many of us are bothered by long queues and too crowded places, so we’d rather go to work in the summer and take vacations shortly before or after.
