Europe Wintertime Wonders

Think about your dream winter vacation … Strolling through the town squares lined with festive decorations or enjoying mulled wine and relaxing at a local café. Seeing Europe as a winter wonderland, visiting Christmas markets, and of course, doing it all with the smallest crowds of the year. Why else should you skate across the pond this winter? Let us count the ways…

1. Mosey Up to Mona.

Colosseum, Rome, Winter

See the Colosseum with no crowds!

Fewer travelers in winter mean fewer crowds. Enjoy more space in museums, among the ruins and down cobblestone streets.

2. More Bang for Your Euro.

Shopping, transportation, all at a better value!

Everything looks a little different in Europe during the winter, including the prices. From transportation and dining to shopping and sightseeing, enjoy plenty of discounts and deals.

3. To Market, to Market.

Frankfurt, Germany Christmas Market

Frankfurt, Germany

Centuries-old Christmas markets offer unique crafts, toys and goodies to bring home, eliminating any reason to visit the dreaded mall.

4. Meet Beppe. Not Bob.

Mingle with the locals.

While traveling during this time of year, the locals typically aren’t. This means there’s more time to get to know them and their beloved traditions.

5. Glühwein!

Yum, Glühwein!

 If the snow-dusted castles and cathedrals of Europe don’t warm a traveler’s heart, this German-spiced mulled wine will.

6. An exclusive deal.
