Plan Now To Visit European Christmas Markets!
I know it's only September, but it's not too early to start thinking about doing your holiday shopping - at a
European Christmas Market!
• European Christmas Markets are absolutely charming; they're old-world Europe at it's best, with snow, roasting chestnuts, hot cider, and lots and lots of booths with hand-crafted items perfect for gift-giving.
• There are many ways to visit these markets; my favorite is a
Christmas Market River Cruise.
Just like any European river cruise, you'll travel from one town to the next on a lovely river ship, stopping in the heart of each old city to tour the town and visit the markets. But these cruises combine sightseeing with holiday festivities - and are tons of fun!
• If you're not interested in a river cruise, there are several very good
Christmastime land tours
, some of which allow you to stay in one place and take you to a different market in a nearby town each day. Others, like the river cruise, travel from town to town by bus.
No matter how you travel to the markets, this is a trip you have to take once in your life!
Next month, we'll talk about adventure travel!
Until next time - Happy Travels!
