August or September Euro Trip

Jump to last reply

Previously looked into Scandinavia in August, but I am now leaning towards Greece in early September.

My wife and I will be flying from west coast and spending 17 days in Europe.

Some of the interesting places I haven't been to that interest me are:

Greece (definitely Santorini - not sure where else), Budapest, Krakow, Amalfi Coast, Serbia/Croatia/Montenegro?, less popular parts of Italy (maybe Puglia, Sicily, etc.).

We are mid 50s (very immature for our age!), no kids, love the beach, love great food, like to hike (as long as there is great food and wine after it), people watching, seeing all of this beautiful Earth as possible.

We live modestly and splurge on vacations (stay in some some 3 star hotels and throw in a few nights in 5 star luxury (if worth it)).

I have to assume that September is a better time to travel to Southern Europe rather than August.

This board has been great to me in the past, with some creative thinking...

I will get some books, etc. and do some research, but there is no research better than hearing from those who have preceded me!

Thanks for any thoughts, suggestions, comments!

We have 17 days (in the past we have done the blitzkrieg vacations where we spend 2-3 nights in lots of different places. This time I think 3-4 places for 4 nights might be better). Willing to fly between destinations.

Any fun ideas?
