Even with a vast ocean between us, the lure of the Old World is inescapable, its magic, untranslatable. Americans have long been fascinated by the stunning lands many of our families came from; the life-altering impressions they leave are eternal. Every region in every country has its own deep, wholly unique roots. These roots connect intricately throughout the continent, a complex network from which sprouted the origins of nearly every facet of Western society and civilization as we know it today.
Art, culture, music, and history comes alive here like nowhere else. Dance to a waltz in Vienna, Austria, or discover the sound of music in the hills of Salzburg. Follow the footsteps of contemporary musical icons in Liverpool, Iceland, Helsinki, or Stockholm. Cheer on footballers in Manchester, Barcelona, or Dublin, or just drink a toast in Budapest, Prague, or Brussels. Defeat any fear of heights in Killarney’s Ring of Kerry and the steep inclines of Santorini, Amalfi, and Positano. Get lost among the canals of Venice, Amsterdam, and Bruges, or find fashion in Paris, Milan, London; gastronomy in Provence, Galway, Bologna, Naples, Sorrento, Tuscany, and Sicily; and ancient history in Athens and Rome.
We could go on and on … but there’s no need when the fact is that regardless of the European destination, the lasting impression you’ll get is that it’s indeed possible to find yourself swept up in the romance of a fairy tale. The only question is, which story will you choose?
Personalize Your Vacation With Monograms
Monograms vacations were created so you can tailor your vacation to your specific likes, interests and travel style. YourWay takes the Monograms concept one step further by allowing you to choose the number of nights you wish to stay in select European cities.
For the first-time visitor to Rome, Venice, Florence, London, Paris, Barcelona, and Madrid, Monograms has found that 3 nights is the magic number for the optimal city experience. But maybe you’ve already spent time in Paris or want to explore more of Florence. With Monograms YourWay, you can customize your stay from two to five nights in these popular cities.
Two Nights To Explore Each Destination
A two-night YourWay package is perfect if you have limited time or if you have previously visited a destination. Monograms vacations always kick off with a half-day of guided sightseeing in each city with VIP access to famous attractions. Once you’ve enjoyed this city orientation (and skipping the lines at the top sights!) you can use your remaining time to explore independently, checking your top “must-sees” or “must-dos” off your list. The Local Host® will have plenty of suggestions and optional excursions!
Three, four or five nights to discover more.
A three-or-more-night YourWay package allows additional time for deeper discoveries and cultural immersion. After the included half-day of guided sightseeing with VIP access, these longer packages allow you to tap the Local Host for more suggestions and favorites, and take advantage of additional Activities & Excursions (available to book via MyMonograms.) With more time to explore – armed with the knowledge and guidance of a Local Host – you will be transformed from “looker” to “local” in a matter of days.
When’s the Best Time to Travel to Popular Cities in Europe?
If you want to see the city of romance during one of its most pleasant weather seasons, spring or fall are your best bets. But if you’re looking for a break on travel expenses, the sparkling holiday lights in Paris are charming. Watch for special deals any time between November to February.
You can’t beat the outdoor music, theater, festivals in London in summer. But don’t overlook all that winter has to offer, like excellent travel deals and smaller crowds. Spring, fall or winter are perfect times to enjoy London’s world-class art galleries, see the crown jewels or enjoy Shakespeare at the Globe Theater.
Amsterdam is known for its gorgeous tulips, which bloom in April and May. Tourism is also at its peak during this time, so book well in advance. July (a school holiday) is also a busy month for tourism. If you’d enjoy quaint cafes with the locals or want to discover a cool little gallery that’s just about to hit the big time – thanks to a tip from your Local Host – consider traveling to Amsterdam in fall or winter.
Between April and June or September and October, Rome’s weather is comfortable, the crowds are lighter and hotspots like museums, fine dining and wineries are open to the public later. Rome’s Christmas Market, with it cheerful lights and toy fair, is a delight. But know that many attractions change hours of operation for a few months in winter as well as in August, when Italians go on holiday. Your Local Host can help you find the greatest places to experience any time of year.
Enjoy the temperate nature of the climate and crowds by planning a Barcelona vacation during a shoulder season – April to May or September to October. Consider a visit during Barcelona’s Catalan independence day on September 11, when the city honors its heritage with a festival of music, cuisine, traditional attire and entertainment.
