Winter in Europe?Hey there, my dad and I are possibly planning a trip to Europe this December break (if not Hawaii). If you have any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it!
-We love experiencing local culture, especially food (we are foodies)
-Favorite cities are Paris and Barcelona (we love the Marais district in Paris especially; we like a cosmopolitan or somewhat lively place)
So, restaurants and culture are really the big thing. We would love to go somewhere warm over the winter, too, so that may be a limiting factor. We we're thinking Greece or Amalfi coast, but we heard they were cold (not sure?). In any case, I wouldn't be opposed to going somewhere chilly if the mood is festive and lovely :)
Thanks for your help,

1In my opinion the best 'festive atmosphere' places are cold in winter......cities in Germany,Austria etc.Good bets for me would be Munich,Berlin....maybe Stuttgart.All have very good food (mostly but not only German-Berlin in particulary has excellent food from all around the world),Christmas markets and a great atmosphere in that period.
Nowhere in mainland Europe is going to be 'warm'.It will either be cold (sometimes really cold,with a lot of snow) or usually grey and rainy.
Certainly I wouldn't go to a 'summer'place like the Amalfi Coast.The only part of Europe that will probably be warm enough to (say) go to the beach will be the Canary Islands.
