I'm a solo female traveller with plans to be in Italy this coming December/January. My itinery is as follows:
Rome: Sat 21st Dec to Tues 24th Dec
Florence: Tues 24th Dec to Fri 27th Dec
Bologna: Fri 27th Dec to Mon 30th Dec
Venice: Mon 30th Dec to Thurs 2nd Jan
Milan: Thurs 2nd Jan to Sun 5th Jan
Could anyone with knowledge of these cities at this time of year provide any recommendations of things to do, particularly on Christmas day (Florence) and new years eve (Venice)? I know that a lot of places will be closed due to the time of year but I'd like to make the most of my limited time in each city. I want to stay in hostels as much as possible to hopefully meet other people travelling and want to try and celebrate the holidays despite being alone.
Any tips would be much appreciated, thanks in advance!
