That friends trip of a lifetime

We are two 40-somethings who have been friends forever. FINALLY taking that BIG trip. We could work it out in May or mid-Oct of '08. We are Total opposites. I'm married on the east coast with kids, she's single living the LA experience.

We want a great, relaxing fun-filled week. We are torn between Tuscany and northern Italy vs. Santorini and maybe sailing a couple islands. I don't know much about Greece- I was there in high school.

What we like: great scenery, relaxation, wine, food (but doesn't need to be high end). We are great Happy Hour girls. No club scene. Our budget isn't over-the-top but definately not less than 3 stars, preferably 4.

I know its a bit vague. We are just in the talking stages. But.... I always rely on my Fodors friends for input. Opinions? Ideas? It will be 7 days TOPS. I'm pushing THAT with my husband/kids. THANKS

I chartered a sailboat in Greece with a friend once. It was a once in a lifetime experience.

Any input on sailing in Greece: Anyone know anything about it? Where to begin my search? We would love a couple nights on a smaller size boat.

I have a friend who lives in Athens who can put you in touch with several outfits that charter sailboats; with and without skippers. If you want to email me I'll put you in touch with her. [email protected]
