Looking for some advice on where to spend Christmas next year in Italy. We'll be flying into Milan, and we're looking for a nice town/village to spend the holiday. We're drawn to this region due to the dramatic scenery and romantic holiday charm. Looking for a town that's not too busy, but not too sleepy either. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Heading for Rome over Christmas is probably the most obvious choice, and with good reason. In addition to the festivities in Rome itself, you also have Vatican City's celebrations. It's like getting two cities' worth of holiday in one spot. At the Vatican, the Pope delivers a Christmas Eve midnight mass (book tickets well in advance if you want to sit in St. Peter's), there's a huge Christmas tree in St. Peter's Square and a life-sized Nativity scene in front of the basilica. In Rome, the Piazza del Popolo fills with over 100 Nativities, the Piazza Navona turns into a Christmas market and Christmas Eve mass is held in historic churches throughout the city -- including the Pantheon, where you'll hear Gregorian chants. I have some good work experience with a OOH ERP and my words are clearly based on what I felt through such processes in the past. http://www.platooh.com about 4 years ago
