Cold rains and gray skies make winter a trial. But hot drinks, snowy slopes, frozen lakes and a bright yellow sun? That’s the kind of winter we can all wrap our mittens around.
And winter actually seems to bring out the best in some cities. Here are 10 around the world that make for a great cold-weather holiday:
The best way to navigate the labyrinthine network of airlines and routes is to use a travel fare aggregator such as Skyscanner to find the cheapest option. But do beware that the cheapest option isn’t necessarily the best one – look out for lengthy stopovers, second-rate airlines, dodgy bucket shops (look for the Atol code to know you’re protected) and, in many cases, outrageously indirect routings. While your wallet may thank you for flying four hours in the wrong direction, the environment almost certainly won’t.
Luxembourg Gardens provide ample green space for relaxing, sun-soaking in Paris and people-watching. When the city bustle becomes too overwhelming, meander around the paths and formal gardens, or just relax with a picnic. Kids can float sailboats at the Grand Basin, ride ponies or take a spin on the merry-go-round. Adults might delight in the on-site Musee du Luxembourg, the first French museum that was opened to the public.
Normandy, the island of Mont Saint-Michel and its magnificent abbey are among France’s most striking sights. The Abbey of Saint-Michel, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, perches on the highest point of the rocky islet. Looking like a fortified castle surrounded by ancient walls and bastions, it is one of the most awe-inspiring Gothic churches ever built.

So it kind of ruins all the fun and the surprise of a new place you are visiting. That did not happen to me with Valencia.
