2 Week Trip- Greece, Italy, or Spain

Jump to last reply

Hello fellow travelers! I'm a new member and thus far am rather enjoying fodors.
I have started the overwhelming task of planning our honeymoon which will be from September 5th to the 19th. We are trying to decide between Greece, coastal Italy, or coastal Spain. To give you an idea of us and what we're looking for: we are in our early/mid 30's, we're not looking for a city feel, we love remote locations, but want an authentic cultural experience- history, great food, great wine, etc. We like a little nightlife, but aren't into the club scene. The ideal vacation would be a mix of sight-seeing and culture, hiking, my fiance loves fishing and boating, and a healthy dose of relaxing on the beach. We prefer more remote beaches to touristy, crowded beaches. We would be flying out of NYC, we have enough points to fly to any of the three so cost as far as the flight is not an issue.
With that in mind here are a few possible itineraries. It would be so helpful to get insight from those who have traveled there.

Greece:
Athens, Aegina, Spetses, and Naxos (not necessarily in that order)
or
Athens, Naxos, and Santorini
or
Athens, Cephalonia, and Ithaki

Italy:
Fly into Milan, Cinque Terre, Fly out of Rome
or
Rome, Pompeii, and Amalfi Coast

Spain:
Andalusia (not sure where exactly maybe Marbella) and Canary Islands (not sure which)
or
Las Islas Cies and...somewhere?
or
Barcelona and Mallorca
or
Valencia and Mallorca

I think I need more guidance on Spain as I'm not getting a clear picture of what that vacation would be like. Any information or opinions on all three countries is very much appreciated!
