Greece only, or include Naples?

Jump to last reply

Greetings. Starting to work on our first trip to Greece (13 days total). Thinking of flying into Athens, spending 3-5 nights, hitting up a couple islands (Mikonos, Santorini, Rhodes are on the initial list), then heading to Naples. We would love to get back to Italy after going to Rome, Flor., Venice several years ago. We are thinking Naples as it is a major city (with airport) and has access to smaller towns/islands nearby.

For those who have traveled to Greece, would you recommend skipping Naples and focusing solely on Greece, or would it be feasible (and more importantly, enjoyable) to leave Greece after 9 days for Italy? Are these specific Greek islands vastly different or is it more of a seen-one-seen-them-all sort of scene?

We are active couple in our 30s who enjoy beaches, good food and exploring new towns/cities on foot. Any personal insights, experiences and recommendations welcome...thanks much.
