Description

This travel guide to Europe is designed to ensure that the traveller is in the right place at the right time to suit his/her personality and preferences. This volume spans the whole year and is sectionalized month by month, each month containing details of the best of that month in the European area; what to see, where to find the most interesting events, climate and conditions and also things to avoid such as arriving on public bank holidays, when the rains have started or when the snow has melted. The sort of information covered includes top sporting events, where the best skiing is, seasonal foods, top events in the music and drama fields, the most interesting or offbeat folkore and traditional local customs in which the visitor can be involved. For example, Vienna's season of balls and events after Christmas, the Venice carnival, Easter week in Seville and the more traditional places to spend Christmas and New Year. Useful addresses are included of hotels and local tourist offices plus a list of major public holidays. Carol Wright is travel correspondent of "House and Garden".show more
