We are a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teenagers). We are planning to spend last two weeks of December in Rome / Florence / Venice. While all our trips to Europe have been in summers, this is the first time we are contemplating going in December. However we have been getting mixed suggestions from our friends - some feel its a good time with less crowds and less tourists; other feel that its cold and will get dark early so you will get less time to spend outside, need to pack lots of layers....
We like visiting monuments, gardens, churches, local markets....... We want some feedback if December is the time to be in Italy or its better avoided.
