Greece - Italy - Switzerland itinerary help

Jump to last reply

Hello!

We're going to Europe for our honeymoon next month and would like to get as much input as possible on our current itinerary. As you can see, the planning is a bit rushed as we initially planned of doing this later on this year. Things have change though, so it's either now or wait til next year sometime.

I have gone through lots of threads in this forum to get some ideas on where to go, how to get to each place, etc. However, this is our first time travelling out of Asia/Oceania so we'd really appreciate it if you could provide any feedback on the following itinerary. Feel free to add any comments to each Day item too if you wish.

Thanks in advance!
