Top Things To Do & Places To Visit This Christmas

Christmas In The Sun

Christmas In The Sun

Escape the holiday madness and fly south on our selection of Christmas holidays in the sun. Malta and Tenerife have some of the warmest winter weather in all of Europe and are a great place to get a dose of Vitamin D during the holiday season. Spain’s Costa Brava may be slightly cooler than the islands this time of year, but no less beautiful! On our Costa Brava holiday, we’ll experience a traditional Spanish Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with dinner, drinks and entertainment.

Christmas Markets

Christmas Markets

Turn Christmas shopping from a chore to a treat on our Christmas Market holidays! We offer a selection of holidays to Christmas Markets in Cologne, Munich, Vienna and more. Enjoy a steaming cup of Glühwein as we explore the markets of Berlin, get in the festive spirit with live carol singers in the markets of Vienna, and shop for traditional Hungarian crafts in the markets of Budapest. All of our holidays include city tours with expert, local guides to help us get our bearings and plenty of free time to wander the markets at our own pace.

Christmas In Austria

Christmas In Austria

When most people think of a European Christmas, we picture snow covered mountains, rich, timber-framed buildings strung with Christmas lights, and a winding maze of lively Christmas markets. We’ll be able to experience all of this and more on our Festive Holidays to Austria, where we'll be surrounded by beautiful alpine scenery in the Austrian Alps. If you’re looking for a traditional European Christmas, look no further than our festive getaways to Austria.

Christmas In Italy

Christmas In Italy

Enjoy a holiday like no other on our Italian Christmas getaways. On our trips to Lake Garda and Tuscany, we’ll have the opportunity to experience Christmas in another culture as we explore towns and villages, cathedrals and sacred sites, all lit up in celebration of this magical time of the year. Italy is known for its fantastic food and at an Italian Christmas, the traditional cuisine takes centre stage. Our festive Italian holidays include Christmas dinners featuring a variety of regional delicacies and international staples.

Guided Christmas Holidays

Take the hassle out of the festive season and escape the mayhem of Christmas time. Sample a traditional Italian Christmas dinner in Lake Garda, take a sleigh ride through the Austrian Alps or simply spend your holiday soaking up the sun in Malta. Wherever you choose to go, we have the perfect Christmas holiday for you. We offer holidays to a selection of sunnier spots around Europe, such as Malta, the Algarve and Tenerife. As well as having a relaxing Christmas Day, we’ll also discover the highlights of your chosen destination with a local guide.
