Help! May 'Babymoon' in Europe

Jump to last reply

I've been to Europe many times, but my husband has never been. With a baby due in August, I figured this is our LAST CHANCE (i kid, kinda) for a while to do a quintessential Europe trip. But, I'm already huffing and puffing pregnant so I know that I can't over-plan, either.

Can you help us with a 12 to 14-day itinerary? My biases are for my hubby to see Florence and Rome, and the rest to me is gravy. Because we'll be going in early May, I suppose it won't be quite warm enough to do Amalfi or Greek Islands, but those are both possibilities.

My two different ideas:

Itinerary 1: ARR London (2 nights) --> fly Florence (3 nights) --> drive Tuscany (1 night) --> drop off car Rome (3 nights) --> Amalfi Coast (2 nights)

Itinerary 2: ARR Rome (3 nights) --> drive Tuscany (1 night) --> drop off car Florence (3 nights) --> train to Venice (1 night) --> CRUISE 5 nights greek islands

Does anyone have any better ideas, or suggestions? Should we try for Salzburg or the Alps? Am I wrong to skip over France (I'm not the biggest fan of Paris)
