    If you like really hot beaches and super warm weather, and lots of people than go summer. I usually go to Europe in Spring and it is pretty warm then. Where you planning on going?

    I wouldnt want to go in the winter! It gets so cold all you would want to do is stay snuggled up in bed!! In summer you want to get out into that stunning scenery and onto the beautiful beaches!! Besides if you look into average climate conditions for the time of year you’re wanting to go, you’ll find that in some destinations even in the summer it can get quite cool at night.

    I would take Spring or Early Summer…

    It’s reasonably warm but you won’t drown in sweat. And you will avoid the massive July-August crowds.
