30. Rome, Italy
Why you should go: Rome in the winter has one major perk: There are virtually no lines to get into the very best monuments, like the Colosseum and the Sistine Chapel, as well as museums and restaurants. And there’s nothing more scenic than when the Eternal City is dusted with snow—a more common occurrence in recent years.
Why it’s a steal: Flights to Rome go for a median airfare of $560 between December and March. The average room rate is $144, 13 percent cheaper than during the fall.
Where to stay: Situated in Rome’s fashion quarter, the chic Hotel d’Inghilterra is a quick walk to the Piazza di Spagna, the legendary Spanish Steps, the Colosseum, the Pantheon, and the Roman Forum. Rooms start at $230 per night in the winter.
