Where to travel for Xmas/New Year's in Europe?

Hi guys, I wrote previously about going to SE Asia for Xmas/NYE, and now it looks like that's not happening since tickets for us (from the US) aren't dropping in price (it's $16-1900 at the moment!). So instead, we're looking into Europe which is much more reasonable since it's off season.
Any suggestions on where to go? We have about 12 days to spare, and are wondering if we can manage more than one place...
We've both already been to Paris so that's out. We'd prefer not to go somewhere TOO cold, but we're glad it's off-season enough that it shouldn't be crawling with tourists.
We like exploring old places and eating good food and taking photos.
Options at the moment are Portugal, Spain, Greece, Turkey, or Italy. We don't have too much money to spend so we're trying to make this as cheap as Europe can possibly be. We heard due to the economy Greece is cheaper than usual...
My only concern is that we plan to get there Xmas day and stay till NYE... are lots of places going to be closed on xmas day?
Also read on another thread that Marrakesh is amazing/cheap in winter? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
