When the presents have been opened, the crackers pulled and the turkey eaten – we can feel a little bit blue heading into January, so this year why not beat the post-Christmas comedown with an Italian break – where the festive celebrations last until 6th January. On 6th January, Italy commemorates the 12th day of Christmas. Epiphany celebrations include a procession in Vatican City, Milan and Florence, and living nativities are common across the country.
Italy4Real have a great range of Italian breaks available in January, including exciting tours and add-ons.
