Christmas is that time of year in which many travelers find the perfect excuse to redo the backpack and embark on the last trip of the year. We do not care too much if the destination is new or is repeated, in the end, returning to any city on these dates is like traveling to it for the first time. These days some cities dress in their best clothes, adorning themselves with Christmas lights and ornaments that turn them into scenarios of stories and other destinations, which flee in some way from Christmas, become the perfect scenarios to enjoy the last getaway of the year. We leave you a selection of what we believe are some of the 6 best getaways for Christmas:
And being on these dates we could not forget the places we have closer to home. Cities like Barcelona will allow us to enjoy one of thebest getaways for Christmas, especially when the month of December begins and the city begins to be covered with Christmas lights and ornaments and prepares to live one of the most familiar and festive times of the year.
Although in Barcelona you could spend months and not finish discovering it, we recommend that if it is your first visit to the city you dedicate a minimum of 3-4 days, to know the most tourist places. We propose a route for a weekend in Barcelona that will take you through some of the most iconic places in the city, including the Cathedral area, where you will find a Christmas market where you can buy and take a special souvenir of the city.
