The Ultimate Europe Travel Guide

The Best Time to Go to Europe

In Southern Europe, winter experiences more rainfall (December through March), while summer months are dry and hot.

When planning to travel to Northern Europe, beware that temperatures oftentimes go below 30℉ from November to March or April, and the daylight hours are far fewer. This, however, gives the reason to celebrate the solstices in the North, so it is a great time to plan your visit around Midsummer or Christmas.
