Trafalgar (www.trafalgar.com), a leader in guided vacations, is introducing three new itineraries to France, Italy and Morocco that offer unique local experiences and exceptional value in its 2012/2013 Autumn, Winter & Spring Europe brochure. The programs are noted for offering local experiences and value.

Trafalgar’s collection of 33 incredible itineraries that visit 18 countries feature Trafalgar’s Insider Experiences, including Hidden Treasures and Local Specialties with Europe’s finest Travel Directors. These itineraries are perfect for travelers looking to experience the wonders of Europe with fewer crowds and lower airfares, plus up to 38% savings compared to travel during the summer months.

On the new 9-day Paris & Rome, travelers get the opportunity to see two of Europe’s most fascinating cities during some of their most beautiful seasons. Spending the first three nights in Paris, guests will see the City of Lights bursting with color in the fall, twinkle amongst lightly falling snow in the winter, or bloom to life in the mild spring. After a morning of sightseeing with a Local Guide, guests enjoy a few days of leisure time to explore beautiful Paris on their own, warming up with deliciously rich hot chocolate in a cafe or quietly soaking up the beauty of the city’s many art galleries. Next, it’s a short flight over to the Eternal City of Rome where guests can drink wine and fill up on fresh pasta to their heart’s content. Three days at leisure gives them time to visit the Colosseum, gaze up in awe at the Sistine Chapel and sip on warm cappuccino.

The new 10-day Best of Morocco is sure to delight the senses, as guests weave their way through the vibrant cities of Marrakech, Fez, Casablanca and Ouarzazate, to name a few. Between resting their heads at beautiful First Class hotels like the Le Meridien and Le Berbere Palace, guests will enjoy highlights like a visit to the Royal Palace in Fez and a trip to the country’s biggest ‘souk’ in Marrakech, plus will have plenty of time to sample the many flavors of Moroccan cuisine and shop for intricate textiles in the exotic bazaars.

The 10-day Wonderful France takes guests to the country’s most vibrant cities and small towns, traveling from Paris to the south and back up again. Highlights include an exclusive Be My Guest dinner amongst the vineyards in Aix-en-Provence, winetasting in Beaune and a daytrip to the jet set playground of Monaco.

“Visiting Europe during the Autumn, Winter and Spring gives travelers an opportunity to immerse themselves in their destination with fewer crowds than in the summer,” says Paul Wiseman, President of Trafalgar USA. “Plus, this time of year represents great savings. Not only are airfares lower, our vacations from November to April are up to 38% less than peak summer months. Travelers can enjoy Europe starting at just $99 per day.”
