December vacation help, 2 weeks - southern Italy or Spain or other?

Jump to last reply

Looking for advice on where to travel this December. My teenage son & I are going to visit my college age daughter who is studying in Copenhagen for the year - she will show us around a couple days then we want to spend time somewhere else, then back to Copenhagen to return to US (already have tickets or would have planned that better), We have a total of 2 weeks over xmas holidays. We prefer milder temps since we like to explore outdoors and we get plenty of cold in upstate NY, Would rather not have to rent a car so good transport is essential, we would like to stay somewhere within walking of some sights. Love markets, people watching, ruins, cooking, castles, cute little bakeries and friendly down to earth people, beaches, hiking, rock climbing (not sure if we can squeeze it in but maybe). We are not really looking for a high end, dress up fancy, big crowded city, art museum type of trip, but rather a meet the friendly locals, walking thru cobbled streets and farmers markets and cafes and shops and beautiful scenery, and old ruins type vacation. We are thinking to stay at an airbnb home to keep down expenses, and have some good intel on the local area. We speak some Spanish so that is a plus, but love Italian food, and the pictures of Sicily look so beautiful and welcoming. Also not much for nightlife, and want safety as a priority, since I'm relatively inexperienced with foreign travel & am a sometimes overcautious single mom traveling with kids. Any help you can provide would be most appreciated, Thank you so much!
Jen
