While the 12 Days of Christmas may be a classic song about receiving gifts from a generous loved one, we saw it as a challenge. Using the days listed in the tune, we devised the ultimate Yuletide guide to Europe, with real-world experiences to tick off your bucket list.



From pear trees in 18th century manors to traditional drummers in Swiss alpine villages, this tour will take you to new and interesting corners of the continent.

So forget stuffing your stocking, stuff your suitcase instead and hit the road for some festive fun.
