Honeymoon: barcelona/french riviera or barcelona / greece

Jump to last reply

Hi there! My fiance and I are having the hardest time deciding on where to plan our honeymoon. We will be vacationing from Sept 27-Oct 11 (end dates are still up in the air). I am not one to lay on a beach all day...I like to explore. My fiance is more into relaxing and luxury but still adventurous. We both really want to go to Barcelona. I feel like the energy will be wonderful! We LOVE Paella, wine, Gaudi, and an exciting nightlife. Maybe spend 3 or 4 days there at the start? Possibly taking a day trip to Costa Brava...?
Then we'd like to either fly into Nice and find a homebase in Antibes maybe and explore the French Riviera by renting a car.
OR
fly into Athens from BCN and do a day or two in Athens before relenquishing to the greek isles..santorini, oia, etc. What do you think? I'm sure they are ALL fantastic.

Now the catch is, I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to stop in Rome to go to Formia to visit my family...most of them won't be able to come to the wedding and my grandmother will be 91!!! She is the best! Do you think trying to stop in Rome either after Barcelona or after Greece...is pushing it?
