My Favorite Cities Few People Visit

They're in Italy, Germany, Norway, and Austria

small group tours to venice If you ask me, cities like Rome, Venice, and Paris are barely worth visiting during peak times.  Our Traveling Professor small group tours avoid these cities in the summer and certain holiday periods.   However, there are gems located all over Europe that can be visited any time of the year.  Each has it's own charms for different reasons.   On your next tour to Europe, try visiting one of these cities, even for only a day.  I guarantee you will enjoy them.
