Italy or Spain in winter

Jump to last reply

My husband has work in London and France in December. We have family in London and have seen parts of France a few times and although we love France as well as England, we thought we'd go someplace different this time.

So we are thinking of visiting Italy or Spain for the week after Christmas. We both know that the winter days are short, cold and maybe even rain/snow, therefore we are looking to see city areas rather than villages or other places that may require us to drive.

We both love art, museums and food, so are debating between Rome and Florence in Italy or Barcelona and Madrid in Spain ... we plan to do just ONE city, so any help for us to make the decision is welcome. Any suggestions for a different city to see is also very welcome.... but we are not too much for snowy places like Alps as we don't do skiing.

Our dates are Dec 27th to Dec 31st. We plan to be back in London to spend new years eve with family there.

Thank you all in advance.
