Greece-Italy Trip for first time

Jump to last reply

Me and my husband are Egyptians (in our mid 30's) and we are planning for our third trip to Europe by the beginning of September 2013. We are basically interested in visiting Italy for the first time. My husband likes to visit more than one country at a time. That's why we thought we would add Greece (first time as well). We like sightseeing, monuments, open areas, beaches, love Italian & Greek food, day trips, like villages and small towns, beautiful countryside and picturesque villages. We don’t like museums and noisy places. Yet we still don’t like very dull places. It’s more like a relaxing trip. We don't like checking-in and out so frequently as it's a bit exhausting and requires a lot of packing & unpacking.

Here's my suggested itinerary. Please feel free to criticize it and please advise your opinion regarding my questions below.

1- Flight Cairo-Athens on 30-Aug.

2- 5 nights in Athens. 1 day trip to Hydra. Any other islands you recommend close to Athens where we can make a day trip not necessarily for beaches, but maybe beautiful sceneries or a different taste ? Or maybe make day trips to other places outside Athens? Is 5 nights too much for Athens or just convenient?

3- Flight Athens-Venice on 3-Sept.

4- 3 nights in Venice. Is it too much or just sufficient?

5- Train from Venice to Pisa, rent a car to visit Pisa Tower. Is it worth it?

6- Drive to Tuscany Area, as we are intending to spend 4 or 5 nights in Tuscany towns. Is 5 days too much? As far as I could find out, Florence is a part of the Tuscany area. Is Florence worth a visit? Do we need to spend a night there? We don’t like museums and art galleries. Do you recommend a specific Tuscany town to stay in? it would be great to stay in a central Tuscany town and drive every day to a different town to see it.

7- Drive to Rome and leave the car.

8- 5 nights in Rome. Is it sufficient? Do you recommend any day trips from Rome?

9- Flight back to Cairo from Rome.

thanks a lot my friends.
Wella
