Rome & Venice or Athens- 10 days

Jump to last reply

I am finally going to Europe & have 10 days (plus 1 day prior and after allotted for travel). My main question is: do I cram all 3 cities into this one trip? They are Rome, Venice, and Athens.
I want to see everything so I know it will be "go go go", but I probably wont get the chance to go again for 5-10 years...and the way the world is going I'm not sure how safe travel will be (ex: I had always planned to go to Egypt one day but I don't see that happening now).

I was thinking 4 nights in Rome (as I want to go down to Pompeii one day), 3 nights in Venice, and 3 nights in Athens (at least part of a day I would like to spend on the beaches there).

We are planning to go in mid/late October.

Any thoughts on that as well as the best ways to get around, which order to go in, and THE best sights to see are appreciated.

This will be my husband and I, both early 30s. We travel every year to the beach but have only ventured to the Caribbean and Hawaii. We aren't all about shopping and all that, more about seeing landscapes and old artifacts/buildings, and EATING local food. Don't like things too commercialized (which I'm sure we'll see everywhere) - we love off the beaten path.
