The Ultimate Travel Guide for Summer in Europe

Summer is the best time of year to visit Europe, but also one of the busiest.

Traveling to Europe in the summer is similar to watching your Pinterest board come to life. It is the best time of year to visit, but also one of the busiest. The weather is sunny and warm, the days are long and filled with good food and drinks. But for first-time travelers to Europe, knowing what to expect from your trip could be overwhelming. This is where AESU comes in to help. Read on for the ultimate travel guide for Europe during the summer!

Plan Ahead As Soon As Possible

Summer is peak tourist season over in Europe, so this means popular destinations can become crowded, and prices are higher than at other times of the year. To avoid long lines and other sold-out attractions, it is a good idea to plan your itinerary ahead of time and book accommodations and tickets way in advance. Consider visiting less popular destinations this summer to avoid the large crowds. Make sure to start planning your accommodations for the summer right now. If you haven’t done this, don’t delay! Make sure to check for the best rates by searching your accommodation to cross-check different websites for different rates. You can also avoid all the stress of planning by going on a tour with AESU!

Pack Smarter and Not Harder

Europe during the summer can be sunny and hot, so it is important to pack as best as you can. Lightweight, breathable clothing is important, as are comfortable shoes for all the walking you’ll be doing. Do not forget to bring a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen to help protect yourself from the hot sun. Depending on where in Europe you’re traveling, you might also want to pack up a raincoat or umbrella just in case.

Skip the Lines

If you’re planning on visiting famous museums, monuments, and attractions, you may want to buy your tickets in advance. Having pre-bookings will allow you to skip the lines and quickly enter, which helps save you time for more adventures in the city you’re visiting. The “three day pass” cards are usually a great deal and encourage you to see a city more in-depth by visiting the top attractions and museums. They usually include the ability to skip the line, which saves you hours. To learn more about how to plan the perfect trip to Europe in the summer, call AESU as soon as possible!
