Rotterdam – the quintessence of the Netherlands

Wind is getting warmer, trees start to blossom and you feel like going somewhere to charge your batteries? Take a look at these destinations with the best flight prices and places to see in spring.

Tulip season in the Netherlands

March and April are the best months to visit Holland. This is when the tulips grow and the whole country is covered with colourful flowers. If you really want to embrace the Dutch tradition, you should visit Keukenhof – the biggest garden with 800 varieties of tulips with flower shows, inspirational gardens and unique artwork. Those who prefer sticking to the capital city can still grasp the beauty of growing tulips while walking around the streets of Amsterdam. If you look for some last minute flights, you can still make it for the food festival which takes place between the 24th and 26th March. You will find 70 foodtrucks with Dutch delicacies and drinks, numerous workshops and presentations.

Irish festivals and folklore

There are many spring festivals to enjoy in Ireland starting with the famous St. Patric’s Day. If you missed it, you can still choose from other attractions offered by Dublin. For example, the Dublin Walking Festival which gives you an opportunity for active holidays. While strolling along the Dublin Mountain Way trail towards the Irish sea at Shankill, you will have a chance to explore hidden treasures of the capital city. If you’re looking for a place to stay during Easter, don’t miss the International Pan Celtic Festival in Carlow, 90 km outside Dublin. From 29th March until 3rd April the place will be full of family attractions: parades, competitions, music and dance events and many more.

Italy in spring

The first months of the year are the best time to visit Italy usually filled with tourists. Whether you want to enjoy the attractions of Rome with its ancient buildings and Vatican City or spend a few days on a romantic trip in Venice, make sure you plan your stay in spring. Don’t forget about the spots mostly known for their ski resorts, such as Bergamo, Milano or Torino. In early spring they offer an opportunity to spend your holidays outdoors walking along trails and stunning views.
