Europe weather can vary from country to country depending on the season. Between the months of November and March, parts of Central Europe can be very cold, whilst the Mediterranean countries remain mild. The months around Christmas are a magical time to visit Central and Eastern Europe, with traditional Christmas markets and New Years Eve celebrations taking over.
Visit Turkey, Croatia, Greece, Italy and Spain in the spring summer months to make the most of the beautiful beaches and perfect weather. Prices tend to be highest in Europe at Christmas, Easter and during the summer vacation. Travel during off peak times to bag yourself a sweet deal or two.
