Europe In The Summer 2024

The summer months in Europe (June-August) are the most popular time to go. During these months, places like France, Germany, Greece, Spain, Italy, and Switzerland are full of tourists. That’s because of the warm weather with highs of 30 C and lows (if you can even call it low) of 15 C.

Peak season in Europe isn’t always everyone’s cup of tea as the attractions are crowded, accommodation rates are high, and the prices for flight tickets skyrocket.

Best places to visit in summer: Paris (France), Rome (Italy), Barcelona (Spain), Munich (Germany), and Lisbon (Portugal).

What to do: Anything you want. During the summer all the attractions are open.
