Most of us think of Christmas as a holiday to spend time at home with family. But have you ever thought about traveling somewhere special for Christmas? There are many places in the world that can be a truly magical place to spend the Christmas holiday, for whatever reason you may wish to get away from it all and do something unique.
Sometimes a Christmas vacation trip can be a good change of pace - for instance, if a beloved spouse or parent has passed away recently, and the idea of spending Christmas at home will be too full of reminders of past family celebrations. Or perhaps you and your partner or spouse want to get away for a romantic Christmas with each other. A great Christmas gift for a small family to give to each other could be a vacation trip to a place they've never seen before during the holidays.
Here are some of my top picks for fabulous Christmas travel destinations. Whether you want to enjoy a vibrant city atmosphere, traditional religious celebrations, or just get away from the cold winter weather, each of these places can make for a Christmas you'll never forget!
Here in Romania we often spend Christmas with family and then go away for New Year's. But you make a great case for spending Christmas in these locations :) Of all three, I'd probably pick Rome. It's such a great destination that it's worth while to visit it in summer, winter, and any time you can. I've never been but have been to London and Paris and great cities beg for you to return :)
