Were you in Europe in August? How crowded WAS it?

Jump to last reply

So all of you who were in Europe in August - how crowded was it where you were?

I travel to Europe every July and, with a few exceptions, find the crowds not as bad as a lot of people would have you believe. But I have heard August is when it gets really bad. I've heard this from locals in numerous different places, and I've also noticed if I check hotel prices in July versus August that they generally are higher in August - leading to the same conclusion. I kind of think the 'really bad' crowds are in the coastal areas. Next year I'm considering August instead of July for my trip, but if there really is a significant difference in crowds I'll stick to July.

So ... if you were in Europe this past month did you find the crowds terrible? Have you also traveled in July or other months so you can compare.
