MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Vayama.com, the online travel agency that specializes in international travel, announced today its European winter deals. In addition to offering the lowest rates of the year for airfare and hotel in Europe, travelers will find that the most popular sites are largely free of crowds.
"The post-Holiday season is the experienced traveler's preferred time to fly to Europe," said Tom Kent, VP Marketing at Vayama. "January is known as a soft period for traveling making it the perfect time to take advantage of deals whether giving them as a Christmas gift or simply to treat yourself. While you can expect cold weather in Europe in January, tourists are in short supply, many cities have their streets still decorated from the holidays and the indoor entertainment is exceptional."
Below are a few of the best, most discounted places to travel in Europe post-Holiday.
Take advantage of the lowest airfares of the year to explore Dublin's pubs - warm up with a visit to the Guinness factory followed by a city walk that follows the route set up in James Joyce's "Ulysses."
London in the winter is very cozy. Start off with a pub-crawl and take a boat from the Embankment to Greenwich to view the city from the Royal observatory - the best view in town. Take a train ride to Edinburg and York to explore England's Viking past (Jorvik Viking Center) and sip the best whiskey Scotland has to offer.
The views of Paris' snowy rooftops from the window of a cozy Montmartre Bed and Breakfast are an overdose of romance. This city is gorgeous in winter, as its wide boulevards get romantically moody in the snow. Warm up with a Cafe au lait at a local cafe accompanied with raw cheese on a toasted baguette before you hit the Louvre or the top of the Eiffel Tower.
The nightlife in Zurich is great and the best Swiss alpine resorts are easily accessible via train - get a Swiss rail pass and save. Take the world famous Jungfraujoch cog train trough the Eiger to admire the glaciers of the Jungfraujoch region, quite appropriately named "the top of Europe."
