Over Christmas, I'm thinking about possibly 1 week in the general London area and 1 week in Naples. Due to my high schoolers' school vacations, this is the only practical time of year for us to go (we travel from west coast so the travel is not practical for 1 week...nor are the economies of 4 airline tickets).
I'm getting discouraged by weather reports and warnings about the limited daylight hours in both locations. I know that it can rain the whole time on any vacation, but weather forecasting models are predicting quite a bit of rainy days, although temps are very comfortably at around 40F. Is there anyone out there that can describe in practical terms how limited the daylight will be in either location re sightseeing? Or comments about the rainy weather. I'd be DELIGHTED with cloudy days, but if I'm walking into a near guarantee of 98% rainy days, I need someone to give me a good talking to. Suggestions for European areas that are less likely to be drizzly/cold at that time of year? I know, I know it is winter weather after all....thanks.
