Rome or Stockholm - PLEASE HELP ME MAKE UP MY MIND

Jump to last reply

I have the opportunity to exchange homes over Christmas 2014, and I have to choose between Stockholm and Rome. Tough!
On this trip my sister will be going with DD and me. This is her first experience of Europe, and I really want her to have a great time.

The apartment in Stockholm seems nice, bright and spacious. It is in Sodermalm, and it seems easy to navigate from there to the rest of the city. The apartment near Rome is in Ostia. This means a 30 minute train ride + a metro ride twice a day, most days. The Rome apartment is smaller, but it has a sea view.
The weather in Rome will not be as cold as in Sweden. In Stockholm snow may be a problem (slippery sidewalks?). Snow may also be a great experience (will it?)
Prices for food in both places seem to be more or less the same, but coffee in a restaurant AND WINE in Sweden is much more expensive. Public transport in Stockholm also seem to be double the price than in Rome.
We will have 10 days, so will want to make a few day trips. Within an hour from Rome there are lovely small towns (right?). Within half an hour from Stockholm nature seems extremely beautiful. How much will we be able to enjoy this in winter?
I have been to Rome before, and know that you will not exhaust its treasures in ten trips. Does 10 days in Stockholm make sense?
We enjoy nature, architecture, history, food, art. Not interested in shopping or nightlife.
Please - those of you who know and enjoy both these cities, what do you think? What have I not considered?
Thanks!
