Confused: Spain or Italy for Summer 2011???

Jump to last reply

Last summer we finally fulfilled our dream vacation by going to Spain (Madrid, Toledo, Cordoba, Seville, Granada and Marbella). This summer we planned on going to Italy (Rome, Florence, Venice and I really want to see a bit of the South-Amalfi coast sounds so beautiful). The problem? We LOVED Spain so much that we can't help but want to go back! I know there's more in Andalucia that we didn't get to see and of course we didn't see Barcelona either. We can't decide! Which would you do?

Here's a bit about us:
1. We travel every summer (we don't have any other option if we want to have a 2 week vacation).
2. We don't mind intense heat at all (Turkey, Middle East, Spain, Morocco- we've been to in the heat and we had a great time).
3. We love admiring natural beauty of a country, walking around a lot, culture, architecture, history and we try to always do something 'water related' to please the kids, beach usually.
4. We're a family of 5 and we work very hard for our money so controlling cost is always a factor. We don't care about eating in fancy restaurants (we always go grocery store shopping in the countries we visit) and we love to walk and use mass transportation (that's what we enjoyed so much in Spain! Those trains are amazing).
5. Spain seems more affordable than a trip to Italy. Italy scares us a bit when we start looking at hotel prices!!!

So, which should we do? Italy--- my kids love art, food, beach or Spain--- we've seen a bit and fallen in love with the country and its people???
