ITALY IN DECEMBER
  • The Best Places to Visit in Italy in December – "No matter the season, Italy is a feast for the senses, and if visiting in December means having to substitute a cozy wine bar for an outdoor cafe, no one is a loser. When the weather in northern Italy turns damp and chilly and temperatures become cooler in the southern region, Italians head indoors to museums and theaters, or don a fashionable topcoat while strolling the shops and Christmas markets set up in town plazas. At the end of the day, Italians embrace the season with their usual passion, choosing to celebrate the arts with vigor, shop with flare and feast on dishes flavored with the season's harvest." – Robin Thornley – Source: This story is part of Travel Tips which was found within the TRAVEL section of the USATODAY – "Latest World and US News"
  • Italy in December – "While most tourists dream of visiting Italy during the summer, there are some who would visit at no other time than in December – and it’s not just because of the Christmas holiday, either." – 27 Nov, 2007 – by Jessica [Spiegel] – Source: Italy section of WhyGo – "More than simple destinations guide books 
  • Places to Go in Italy in December – "While many people visit Italy in the summer months to enjoy the sun and surf of the extensive coastline, outdoor concerts and meals made from fresh seasonal produce, they may not realize all there is to do and see in Italy during December. However, this primarily Catholic country begins its holiday celebrations early, offering visitors a plethora of attractions and events even during the last month of the year." – Amie Taylor – Source: This story is part of Travel Tips which was found within the TRAVEL section of the USATODAY – "Latest World and US News"
