Monte Carlo Masters

Near the top of anyone’s bucket list of travel is likely to be Europe. The continent is ripe full of history, culture, natural beauty, and modern societies. However, as any experienced traveler understands, the best time of the year to visit the area is spring. The northern climate begins to warm up while the days lengthen, creating luscious, bright evenings in romantic destinations. Among the top travel destinations in Europe are Paris, London, Rome, Madrid, Monte Carlo, and Barcelona. Not surprisingly, the ATP and WTA tennis tours make stops in each of these towns just as summer sets in.

Due to this smart timing, the spring weather makes for the perfect time to schedule not only a fabulous European vacation, but also include a stop to a major tennis tournament. Some of the popular spring events include the Monte Carlo Masters in April, the Rome Masters, Mutua Madrid Masters, and French Open in May. These events are all major tournaments featuring the world’s top ranked players like Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic.

Rome Masters offers a festive atmosphere unlike anywhere else.

Additionally, many minor tennis tournaments take place throughout Europe as well during this time such as the Barcelona Open in late April. While some of these events don’t carry the same superstar appeal, there are still scores of up and coming players and the wonderful aura of pro tennis!
