We will be in France in the first half of December. Are there any recommended festivals/activities one should see in that region? Right now, our schedule is fairly open. Thank you!
We found the village of Versailles to be beautifully decorated in December.
Where exactly in France will you be? "France and surrounding area" is quite a large piece of geography.
We will be starting in Lyon, France. We certainly are planning to see Toulouse, Nice and Monaco. Afterwards, we are considering possibly Spain and Italy. Or, we could go the other direction and go to Switzerland, Austria and/or Belgium.
Take in a panto in England or Wales; a concert or opera in Paris, Vienna, Milan or Rome; or a ballet in London, Paris, Vienna or Rome.
Christmas markets in certain towns in Germany.
Skiing and snowboarding in Germany, France, Italy, Austria and Switzerland.
Christmas decorations in central London, especially on Oxford Street and Regent Street, and Piccadilly.
Skating on a frozen (if it is) canal in Holland.
Hopefully next year the Oxford Street christmas lights will be sponsored by a different company and we won't have vomiting elves like last year.
Vomiting elves!! Now that's jolly!
Yes, and they were horrible. Over and over and over again. I had thought I had put that out of my mind. Thanks Philip.
