Colorful Cues in Europe


Aug 17, 2016 | by Aon

If your idea of vacation includes strolls through winding canaled neighborhoods or viewing world-class art, check out what top travel writers have to say about exploring Europe – particularly when the weather first starts to warm. Some of these experiences are limited time only, so plan ahead for your next colorful adventure:

Copenhagen, Denmark

Travel & Leisure calls charming Copenhagen one of the world’s cheapest places to travel in spring. It marks the end of Scandinavia’s brisk spring, perfect for exploring the Tivoli Gardens and lingering in outdoor cafes.

Glasgow, Scotland

Vibrant and friendly despite its imposing architecture and famously bleak weather, Afar magazine delivers a lively outlook for exploring Glasgow that’s sure to put some spring in your step.

Brussels, Belgium

Art fans should make their way to Brussels in April to enjoy fine weather (the month with the least amount of rain) while they explore the city’s emerging new galleries, studios and vintage shops. More in Travel & Leisure.

Oxford, England

If finding a slower pace is on your menu, National Geographic Travel offers a picturesque journal of the delights of cruising the Oxford Canal at three miles per hour.

The Netherlands

April is peak tulip season in the Netherlands and prime time to soak in the season’s colors. For maximum impact, take a road trip to the Keukenhof garden to view 70 acres of park land covered in 7 million flowers. More in Travel & Leisure.
