From Nicole:

Well, I don’t know about you all, but this month’s Italy Travel talk has inspired me to plan an Italian adventure over the holidays. Although exploring south Tyrol in northeast Italy has been on my travel bucket list for years, I think it might just be too cold in the winter months. (I’m weak, I know.)

It’s still on the list, but now I’m thinking about heading back to Sardinia. I’ve been to the south of this amazing Italian island twice, but have never been up to the north. Anyone have any recommendations for Italy over Christmas?
