Best time to visit May to October
Western Europe is a year-round travel destination, where any time is a good time to visit some corner of the continent. While each country has different weather, there are a few common trends. The best time to Western Europe is from June to August and September to October. Unfortunately, summer (July and August) is also the most crowded time and can be expensive too. For lower travel rates and significantly shorter lines at attractions, plan a visit in the spring (Apr-June). Remember, that Madrid, Paris and capital cities will see be touristy seeing millions of travellers yearly. The best time to visit such places is in the fall (Sept-Nov), when things are easier to come at reasonable prices. The months of April, May, June, September, and October are very good for travel.
