The holidays are upon us. Christmas is coming. If the thought of Christmas does not warm your cockles – if, rather, it invokes a sense of dread – then here’s a list of countries you might like to go instead of staying home.
Famed for its food, wine, and couture fashion, Italy is worth paying a visit at any time of year; though, depending on the season, some places are more appropriate than others. We would say that Milan, at this time of year, is especially nice; it has a festival celebrating the feast of Sant'Ambrogio and its Christmas market is full of goodies. You could also go skiing in the north of Italy.
