Winter in Southern Europe

The Best Way to Beat the Winter Blues

Uncrowded landmarks. Quiet streets. Mild weather. Local experiences. There are many reasons why you should escape those winter blues to Southern Europe, but the biggest one is the unbeatable value you’re getting when embarking on your learning adventure with Road Scholar. During the winter months, the cobbled streets are yours to explore as you study some of the world’s greatest treasures with our experts when the tourists have all gone home. With fewer crowds, you’ll experience in-depth learning like never before while top-notch instructors show you both iconic landmarks and local secrets. 




“This is a great opportunity to spend time in places that are usually overrun by hordes of tourists, but have those places almost all to yourselves! The weather was mild, food was great, the group members were congenial, and the leader was outstanding.” 

— Polly, White Bear Lake, Mich., Class of '19 —
