As summer slowly comes to a close and autumn draws near, it’s time to start planning for a vacation. Although the summer months have a reputation for the best vacation time, winter can also be an amazing time to travel. While it may be cold in some places around the world, it could be all sunshine somewhere else. Check out the best travel destinations in winter:
Many people have Italy high on their travel list and rightfully so. Italy is one of the most beautiful countries and is rich in culture. Rome, Italy is known as the Eternal City and is quite beautiful in the wintertime. For those who don’t mind a little cold weather, winter is the perfect season to visit Rome. Without the crowds of tourists and other travels the summer months bring, you’ll truly be able to enjoy sights such as the Roman Forum, the Spanish Steps, and the Colosseum.
For those looking to escape the cold and a romantic getaway, St. Lucia is the perfect destination. During our winter months, St. Lucia is very warm during that time of year. Picture clear skies and highs in the 80s. Although traveling to ST. Lucia during the winter can be a bit more expensive than other destinations, it is well worth it to see the warm sandy beaches and breathtaking views.
