Beginners attempt at an itinerary

Jump to last reply

I am in the early stages of planning my first trip to Europe.

I can take roughly 21-25 days including flying in and out.

My desired countries are Italy (primary interest) Greek Islands & some of the Turkey coast.

My partner and I are fast paced young travellers (24 & 25) and like to make the most of our days/nights. We hope to just scratch the surface of the major cities, as well as covering as much ground as we can.

We appreciate any advice, tips and suggestions anyone may have as nothing is set in stone and we just want to see as much diverse and beautiful cities and towns as possible in our short trip!

We did look into Contiki but have read a lot of posts that put us off - we want to eat the true and delicious local food and stay as close to the action as possible! But please share if you have contradictory stories :)

Would love to know any additional cities/towns and any to miss.

Am I making a mistake fitting Turkey I to this trip?

Fly in from Australia to Venice (2 nights)
Venice to Bologna
Bologna to Florence (2 nights)
Day trip to Cinque Terre
Florence to Rome (2 nights)
Day trip to Vatican City
Rome to Naples (2 nights)

Athens to Mykonos (2 nights)

Thanks in advance!!
