Which European cities are the best in December?
In December, Europe is normally very cold and . So could you please recommend which city is the most pleasant to visit in December?
My sincere thanks,
Can you travel to the southern hemisphere?
Try Buenos Aires.
To everyone: I've found two (separate) good offers for Rome and Barcelona during this period. Which city would you prefer?
But with the ease and affordability of budget airlines, cant you do both rome and barcelona?

By the way...what airlines did you find your flight for Barcelona on? I'm planning on going back sometime in the next few months and am scouting out tickets now.

I would say Crete. Don't know if the sea would be warm enough to swim in, but I doubt it.
Be aware that right about the end of September, the ferry service to Crete becomes relatively infrequent and timing is crucial. I got screwed out of visiting Crete last year (starting on Santorini) as the daily ferry service dropped to twice a week while I was there. Don't know about the schedule from the mainland, though it's sure to be a bit better.
Otherwise, Barcelona kicks ass in winter. Still crowded, but not teeming and not butt-crack hot. Anywhere in Andalusia would be a good bet too, Seville in particular as no sane person should be there in the summer anyway. I was in Rome in December. It rained all but one day, but the trade off in the smaller crowds was well worth the hassle.
Don't rule out Portugal. I'm told Lagos gets about the best winter weather on continental Europe.
I did eastern Europe in December, but my desire to see the cities beat out the cold, and it was cold.
I did spend a Christmas in London, it never really go unbearable there, just dreary.
One caveat - a couple of years ago we went to Malaga in southern Spain in December and it rained non-stop for the ten days we were there. Unfortunately we hadnÂ´t packed for rain and donned modified trash bags whenever heading out to the (mercifully close) pub
