    All contiki tours are good in summer, honestly Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->. One thing to keep in mind, in the mediterranean countries in summer temperatures can exceed the 40s. It can get bad waiting in queues etc for museums. However, I wouldn’t say not to go because of these reasons. Europe comes alive in summer.

    Also, with the snow, skiing in Austria is pretty much impossible in summer. This is unless it has an absolutely awesome season with conditions still good in May, June, etc. Best time to go skiing in Austria is ofcourse in winter, January or February the pick of the months.
