Best Way to See Italy and/or Greece?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary in September 2017. We are looking to book a special trip to Italy and/or Greece. We have never been on a cruise before and have heard a lot of great things about them--both big cruise ships and river boat cruises. In fact, we're not big travellers at all. Any recommendations on the best way to see one or both of these beautiful countries over a two-week period? We aren't big travellers so we would welcome any insight you can offer.

We realize we can't possibly see all of these places in two weeks but the most beautiful places in Italy seem to be Venice, Rome, Naples, Capri, Amalfi Coast, Portofino, La Spezia, Sorrento and Positano. In Greece these would be at the top of the list: Santorini, Mykonos, Corfu, Parga, and Zakinthos. Any recommendations on which spots are "must-sees" for our first time there?

Many cruises I have looked at have cities on their itineraries which I am not interested in or ones that I want to see are missed altogether. Is it better to do a bus tour for say one country and do a cruise for the other? Which cruise lines would you recommend most and which would you stay away from?

Any ideas you might have would be most appreciated.

Thank you!
