    Of course, you don’t have to travel far to get the most out of your year-end holidays. For those in the know, December is the best time to also stay put at home. The weather is perfect, the roads are quiet and the city takes on a subdued nature, unheard of in the midst of the rough and tumble working year. It’s the perfect time to explore the nooks and crannies of this fascinating city. If you’re short on ideas this article offers some interesting spaces and places to explore.

    Whatever you decide to do, stay safe and enjoy your time off with your loved ones.
