Christmas in Greece and Italy-need ideas!

Jump to last reply

I'm spending two weeks in Greece and Italy from Christmas to early January with my husband and kids (two teens and a 21 year old). I'm looking for ideas on ways to make it merry and homey for all of us while also visiting must-see sites in both countries. We'll be in Greece for Christmas itself, then going to Italy for 8 days. we'd rather not be constantly on the move, but we want to balance that with experiencing some of the major highlights of both countries. Any and all tips will be appreciated!

    Not all people including teens and 21 y.o.s have same interests. "Must-sees" vary from person to person.
    I can comment based on logistics issues for a start...I think in Greece you have to stick with mainland and/or very large islands. I can't comment about Italy. There are some options connecting west Greece with Italy on a long ferry ride in winter, but most likely you'll decide it is more convenient to fly from Athens or maybe Thessaloniki (?). Assuming you have arrival day+6 full days+departure day in Greece, you could always simply stick to Athens or maybe devide your days among Athens +1 or at most 2 other places... Answer on this lies on your interests. Also, are you willig to hire a car or you look on public transport? Very common places for first time visitors to Greece that team up well with Athens is Nafplion and surroundings, Delphi (+Meteora) and possibly day trips to Aegina or Hydra if weather co-operates... Note that 25th + 26th December and 1rst January are bank holidays in Greece, so museums, archeological sites etc will be closed on those dates.
