Europe Late December/early January

Jump to last reply

What a great forum. I have off December 16/17 2011 until Jan 2 2012. Which is a perfect time to take a long vacation. Over the past month I've map the route I would like to use. I've made a lot of notes on the attractions, transportation, hours of operation as well lodging. I plan to fly into Amsterdam and Depart from Rome. I know I will be traveling a lot. Unlike most I prefer to hit the spots and move on. As of right now this is what I plan to do.

Amsterdam- 2-3 days
Brussels day trip in route to Paris
Paris 3 days
Train to Geneva day trip
Lucerne 1-2 days
Milan ( in route to Venice) 1 day
Venice 2 days
Florence 3 days
Rome 3-4

I've read a lot of mixed reviews on Winter in Europe. Some say December and Christmas is awesome while others say its not a good time to go. Financially its cheaper. With my long vacation time I feel like its the perfect time to go. The train ride ( unless there are issues due to the weather) and the cold is not a factor. Any thoughts on Dec-Jan in Christmas as well as my itinerary ? Your comments are greatly appreciated.
