While traveling is enjoyable at any time of the year, there’s just something magical about Europe in the spring. This spring is an especially exciting time to travel. With travel restrictions lifting, the world is finally opening up, again.
If you’ve been denying your wanderlust for the past two years, here’s your big chance to cross another item off your bucket list.
So, where in the world should you go? For an unforgettable spring trip, here are five cities in Europe that are perfect to visit this time of year. Now you can get there for less thanks to our discounted business class flights to Europe and other global destinations!
Paris is a truly magical place, but it is even more beautiful in the spring. Visit the world’s most romantic city this spring to enjoy all the wonders Paris has to offer.
Depending on whether you go earlier or later in the season, the weather may vary, so be sure to pack accordingly. However, you can still expect the city to be in bloom while you’re there! Easter in Paris, spring fashion week, and the verdant Luxembourg gardens are a few of our favorite things to do in this city as the weather warms. Who wouldn’t love a sunshine stroll along the Champs-Élysées followed by some people watching at one of the city’s elegant outdoor cafes?
The spring months are also still considered the “off-season” in Paris, so you’ll find there are fewer crowds and better deals, including cheap first-class tickets to Paris with Business Class.
Longer daylight hours and milder weather make London a phenomenal destination to visit in the spring. As the city awakens from its winter slumber, you’ll find a vibrant array of exciting activities to enjoy outside.
While it’s impossible to reduce London’s allures to just a handful of must-dos, we do have some suggestions for springtime travelers. Take in the dazzling pink pom-pom cherry blossoms around St. Paul’s Cathedral, soak in the scenic view from the roof at “Up at the O2”, and end the day with dinner and dancing on a Thames Dining Cruise on a warm evening.
London also comes alive Easter weekend, and the long weekend is packed with things to see and do. Just make sure to bring a raincoat and rain boots (or “wellies”) for London’s unpredictable weather.
Mild weather, spring festivals, and extraordinary seasonal foods are just a few of the reasons why Rome is one of the best European cities to visit in the spring. While Italy’s capital city can be sweltering in the summer, you can expect perfect weather in the spring with temperatures ranging from the mid-60s to mid-70s.
Wander around and get lost in the Rose Garden, watch the rainfall through the oculus atop the Pantheon, and partake in the city’s birthday celebration in late April. Easter is, of course, a bustling time in Rome, and you may happen to catch a glimpse of the Pope if you are lucky!
Speaking of getting lucky, chocolate lovers visiting Rome are in luck thanks to the artisanry of Rome’s pastry shops. We challenge you to find more delicious works of art than the chocolate Easter eggs you’ll discover in Rome in the spring. Other spring delicacies to indulge in on your trip are Roman artichokes, puntarelle, and fave e Pecorino.
While many European destinations shine in summer, fall, and winter, Amsterdam owns the spring. While winters can be dreary in this Dutch capital, the city comes alive in the spring.
A few of our favorite things to do in Amsterdam in the springtime are spending a day at one of its wonderful green spaces like Vondelpark or Bloesempark, exploring the city’s historic and fascinating street markets, and partying on King’s Day.
Of course, no discussion of Amsterdam in the spring is complete without mention of its awe-inspiring tulip fields. We recommend renting a bike and cruising through the field of beautiful flowers. You could even take a short bus ride to the massive gardens of Keukenhof, one of Amsterdam’s major springtime tourist attractions. Just be sure to get your tickets in advance so you don’t miss out. Bonus tip: Weekday afternoons tend to be less crowded.

The return of warm weather is a wonderful time to discover Geneva. This cosmopolitan city along the shores of Lake Geneva plays host to a plethora of springtime activities.
Geneva’s world-famous parks are bursting with blooming flowers in a rainbow of colors, as is the glorious Conservatoire et Jardin Botaniques. Even simple walks through the historic city or surrounding countryside feel more splendid and spirited in the spring. Visit the stunning Jet d’Eau and other monuments, take a boat ride on the lake, visit the Palais des Nations, and enjoy a drink on one of the city’s signature terraces.
