half cruise half land trip

Jump to last reply

My husband are in the early stages of planning our first trip to Europe. We have always wanted to do a Mediteranean cruise. So we were thinking that we would have half of our trip be the cruise and the other half on land traveling on our own. We are planning to be in Europe for 14-17 days.

So if the cruise is one week, that leaves about a little over a week to hit a few spots. The spots that we are interested in are Rome, Venice, London, and somewhere in Germany. Does anyone have sugguestions on a good Germany destination? We are interested in castles and history. I have a feeling that we won't have enough time for 4 cities in just over a week. If we really had to cut a city, it would probably be London.

Is this a good idea to do half land half cruise? or should we just spend all of our time on land. We figured by doing the cruise we could see a few more countries. It leaves rome, and hits Athens, Turkey, Crete, and Sicily, and returns to Rome.

Our initial thought was 2-3 days in Rome before the cruise, a couple days in Venice, and the rest split between London and Germany. Is this too much? Any sugguestions and ideas are welcome!!
