Avoid the Summer Crowds

Share Article

Many of us know that summer is not always the best time to travel to Europe due to high prices and many tourists. However, not everyone knows that the locals in popular, European metropolises often close up shop and leave for vacation during the summer months. This means less of a chance for travelers to experience the great European cities’ cultures at their best. Why not plan your trip for fall instead of summer? An international education company even provides a savings incentive to immerse yourself in the local culture during the fall months.

The summer high season in Europe means high prices, large crowds, and a lack of locals as city dwellers close up shop and head to the countryside or the beach. Popular city destinations in for example France, Italy, and Spain experience a high influx of tourists during the time when many Europeans are away on vacation.

Savvy travelers can avoid the pitfalls of summer travel by planning a trip during the fall months. As the visiting tourist crowds dissipate, travelers have a greater opportunity of immersing themselves in the culture and truly exploring Europe. Whether it’s studying the architecture of France, touring the vineyards of Italy, or learning Spanish in Spain, fall is a great time.

To encourage fall travel and true cultural experiences, AmeriSpan, an international education company (http://www.amerispan.com), is offering a 20% discount on language and culture immersion programs in Valencia, Spain. This is a great way to introduce yourself to a new culture. A typical immersion experience is for all age groups and provides daily language classes, cultural activities (such as local dance and cooking classes, museum visits, and cultural lectures), accommodation with a local host family or in apartments, and most meals.

This fall promotion means you can participate in a 2-week immersion program for as little as $650. You would need to buy your own flight ticket, but don’t worry, many airlines offer eye-popping deals during the fall months. Participants must register by September 1, 2005 and commence their program by January 1, 2006.

Valencia, Spain’s third largest city, is located on the Mediterranean coast and boasts a temperate climate year-round. The city offers a wide array of museums, beaches, and an exciting nightlife. With both traditional and modern elements blended seamlessly together, Valencia is a vibrant destination that is waiting to be discovered.
