Italy & Greece - To cruise or NOT to cruise - THAT is the question!?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are starting to plan a trip for next summer - July 2013. I know it sounds early, but I like to take my time planning and have something to look forward to! To provide a little background, we are both 30 years old, just got married, and love to travel. We like a mix of relaxation and being active.

I have been to Italy (Venice, Florence, Tuscany, Cinque Terre, Pisa, and Rome), while my husband has not yet been to Europe. I loved Italy so much that I would really like to take him there and show him how amazing it is! With that being said, we'd like to do something that both of us have never done together as well. We were thinking of cruising to the Greek Islands from Venice. Has anyone ever cruised to the Greek Islands from Italy? Is it worth it? Would you prefer flying to Greece and picking 2 or 3 places to visit rather than crusing? Does anyone have a dream itinerary that they want to share with me? We have roughtly 12 days for our vacation. Please let me know your thoughts!

Thanks!
Allison

ALSO...I am COMPLETELY open to any other itineraries that you thought were phenomenal in Europe. I have only been to Italy, so I would be open to suggestions in other countries as well, but am stuck on Italy and Greece...for now!
