Scotland, Italy, or Greece for 6 days?

Jump to last reply

My mother and I are traveling to Europe next summer, around late July/early August, to visit my uncle who lives in Germany. We will be visiting him for 10-12 days, and will be visiting Germany, Austria and Switzerland while with him. We do, however, have another 6 days on top of that, where we would like to visit a different country.

Our thoughts of possible options:
Reason for Scotland: our Douglass Clan heritage makes Scotland high on the European priority list
Greece: I have heard the Islands are absolutely gorgeous
Italy: anther country on our Bucket List, including the cities Rome and Venice
I had Croatia on my list, but my uncle from Germany told me to give the country another 5-10 years before going to visit.
I love landscape photography and history. Mom's just along for the journey together :). Looking for a "pretty" place to visit and relax a little

We only speak English and I understand limited French. I have looked at flights from US to Scotland to Germany then back home, and it was only $30 more than if we just flew round trip to and from Germany.

What would be the suggestions for this time of year and amount of days we have to dedicate to a region? We want a safe locale for two women traveling together, and nothing too too expensive. Overnight accommodations need to be clean, and we would like them to be under $120 US /night total. We don't mind renting a car while there.

Being our first trip to Europe, we are excited but nervous at the same time.
Thank you ahead of time for any input
