Another popular European destination, travelers can enjoy cheaper flights and even hotel stays during Italy's off-season. Plus, travelers can celebrate the holidays Italian-style, taking in the beautiful sights, holiday decorations and even taking an Italian cooking class or two.

Miki Taylor, Founder & CEO of Taylor & Co. Travel, said, "European vacations have been more popular with families this holiday season than in the past. Families with older children, instead of purchasing gifts, have decided to getaway and take that dream vacation abroad. I would usually have a few of these each year but it has become a more frequent request."
