What is the best city in Western Europe in which to spend Christmas?
My spouse and I have decided to spend Christmas and New Year's in Europe! We will be going to Athens for New Year's Eve, but we aren't sure where we should spend Christmas, and the days leading up to it.

The front runner was Rome - one of us has visited before and one of us hasn't. Now we're thinking maybe Paris is a better option? London is out because we've already spent significant time there.
Wherever we wind up, we will be there for 5-6 days, include Christmas eve, day and boxing day. We will be renting an apartment. Good food is important, as is (dry) wine and cocktails (not interested in beer.) We like city life - we will take in a few museums but we also enjoy walking around, shopping, and just generally experiencing life in a new place. Climate isn't important - we don't mind the cold at all.
Tell me about your amazing European Christmas adventures!
