If you have in mind a trip to somewhere in Europe, then let us share information that will undoubtedly help you better organize your trip. So that you can fully enjoy the so-called old continent.

Why travel to Europe?

Among the reasons why Europe can be taken as a travel destination we have, for example, that there is the option of traveling without a Visa. This clearly does not apply throughout Europe but in those countries that belong to the Schengen community, that is, only some of the European Union. The condition for this to be possible is that the person does not stay more than 90 days.

Another reason that makes people travel to Europe is the search for gastronomy without equal. And it is that, without a doubt, this part of the world has a delicious gastronomy that has been imitated throughout the world.

Do you want to taste the delicacies of the Mediterranean? As well as the recipes of Italian cuisine, or perhaps French food and desserts, among many other dishes? Then Europe awaits you with its great gastronomic variety.

Would you like a train trip through Europe? This is also possible. If you have not yet had the experience of getting on a train and enjoying the beautiful European countries close to the railway tracks, then you definitely need to have that experience. We assure you that it will be an unforgettable experience!

On the other hand, if you are a wine lover, then you can enjoy a trip to Europe and its wine tourism routes. The land and vines of excellent quality have allowed the great fame of European wines, such as French, Spanish and Italian, to be generated. Well, these are the places where we can find the best vineyards and wineries, whose harvest takes place between the months of July and October.

There are several wine routes that you can find on your way through Europe, a route that is also very enjoyable.

When to travel to Europe?

To answer this, it is important to keep in mind that the choice of the time of year or the moment to make a trip to Europe will depend a lot on the country or countries that you have in mind to visit. Well, you will certainly find many climatological differences between them.

Therefore, in the winter season that includes the months of November and February, the Nordic countries reach really low temperatures. And during the summer season, between the months of June and September, the heat can also become something terrible to bear, especially towards the southern part of the European continent.

The spring season that runs from the months of March to May aims to be an ideal time to travel to the old continent. Well, it is a time when you can find a more temperate climate within the European geography.

But remember that for the autumn season it will always be a little more difficult to find good weather to enjoy a trip to Europe, since the rains are usually much more present in that season of the year.

Also remember that if you travel to Europe outside of the high seasons such as: August holidays, Christmas, Easter and other holidays, you may be able to save some money by finding cheaper hotels.

Where to travel to Europe in winter?

You must bear in mind that winter in Europe is a very variable time, for example, in the polar north the winter season arrives with abundant snow and a good number of weeks without seeing the sun. While in the mild Mediterranean you can still see the sun and in the center everything is Christmas spirit and comfortable cafe culture.

It is an inspiring time to take a trip and visit great cities and charming towns. Europe's rail network allows you to explore its countries without rushing and enjoy seeing how the locals go about their daily lives, away from the hectic summer tourist season.

If you need to know which places in Europe to visit during the winter, we recommend the following:

 

  • Rovaniemi (Finland) “The land of Santa Claus”
  • Enjoy the Northern Lights in Abisko (Sweden)
  • Athens (Greece) This is the best time to enjoy the monuments of ancient Greece.
  • Copenhagen (Denmark) Quite a fairy tale!
  • Budapest (Hungary) enjoys its thermal baths and skating.
  • Venice (Italy) Enjoy the Venice carnival in February!

What is needed to travel to Europe?

Who wants to travel to Europe as a tourist needs to meet the requirements according to their country of origin. It is important to remember that the Schengen visa and the ETIAS visa waiver can only be used to visit those European countries that belong to the Schengen area.

Tourists from countries that are currently exempt from applying for a Schengen visa need to apply for an ETIAS online in order to visit Europe. And those citizens from third countries that are not exempt from visa, will require the Schengen visa. This demands a series of requirements that must be presented to a European embassy or consulate.

Every tourist needs a valid passport to be able to travel to Europe and it is also important that the person has medical insurance or travel insurance.
