Greece, Spain or Sicily (So. Italy) for Xmas 2013???

Jump to last reply

DH and I would like to take a trip to Europe over Christmas 2013. We would have up to 3 weeks for travel, and we do like to take our time in places so we can "soak in" the culture of our location. We are in our late 40's/early 50's and have traveled abroad to Europe & Asia several times.

Initially we thought we'd go to Greece (never been), see Athens, some countryside, Crete and maybe Cyprus. But the economc situation there is a little worrying. (potential for crime, social unrest, etc).

We have been to Italy: Venice, Florence & Rome. But have not explored Southern Italy/Sicily.

We haven't been to Spain, but it's on our list. We would prefer to go somewhere with a mild climate - someplace that we wouldn't go during the summer because it would be too hot for us to enjoy. (we are from Washington State, so we are accustomed to cooler climes).

We enjoy museums, historical sites/ruins, dining, people watching, leisurely strolls, light hiking.

I would like input from my fellow, well-traveled Fodorites. Have you been to Spain, Greece or Southern Italy? What did you enjoy the most? What would you recommend?

Thank you!!
