The usual weather during the winter months will be clear days, with sun but with that cold sea breeze that can be quite annoying if you are not properly dressed.

Back to Winter ,the best clothes to travel will always be warm clothes. Coats, scarves, gloves and thick socks. Wool and knit sweaters, long shirts, we recommend to choose pants are not excessively long because if they touch the ground they will be soaked if it rains and better to avoid jeans, since that fabric absorbs the cold a lot and also if It rains, it takes a long time to dry.
We recommend one hundred percent to wear good footwear, which is warm, and is thick for those cold cold days and if you have the option of waterproof shoes, bring them along.

It is different to be traveling in the city that to live in, activities as visiting museums, parks, churches, streets will take long hours no matter the weather, but when you live in the city, you have more time to choose what a day to go

Warm clothing. (jackets, coats, down jackets etc)
Winter accessories (caps, scarves etc)
Underwear (thick or wool socks, cold starts at the extremities)
Wool or thick knit sweaters.
