Family trip to Italy/Greece-August

Jump to last reply

I am thinking about traveling to Italy and Greece for two weeks in August. I am worried about the reports of terrible heat and stickiness, but it is the only time we can get away for two weeks. Any suggestions of where to be in these areas to minimize the heat problem? I am traveling with my husband and 12 and 15 year old daughters. My initial thought is to go to Rome and Venice then fly to Athens and then beach bound. My daughters have been looking forward to going to Greece ever since seeing Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and Mamma Mia! I would like to combine exploring with some relaxing beach time. I would like to get to at least one beach with beautiful blue water and white sand. Preferably calm water (as my younger daughter gets a bit scared of big waves!). I was thinking of Santorini and Mykonos, perhaps with a day trip or two to explore some other areas. I would like to include some adventure if possible (snorkeling, etc.). I am looking for any and all suggestions: locations, places to stay, things to do....
