Sicily & Greek Islands Help
There are two (okay, more, but one at a time) major holes in our European travels: Sicily and Greece. We don't like to go for long trips - 12 days is absolute tops, but 8 - 10 is about ideal. We have done escourted tours and we have gone out on our own - we can be comfortable either way or a combination. When I look at tours and/or cruises involving Sicily and the Greek Islands, I am surprised at how few - like none - are exclusively Sicily and Greece! And that's what we're looking for. Sure, we'll fly into Rome or Naples or somewhere else in order to make a connection to where we want to get to, but we want the lion's share of the trip to be Sicily and the Greek Islands (and Athens, too).
If I were to design my own tour, it would include 4 - 5 days exploring Sicily and 4 -5 days cruising key Greek Islands and a solid day (or two) for Athens - this does not include travel days to and from the US. I know, I know: both those locations deserve far more ... but for now, those are the parameters.
By the way, we're looking at this coming spring - 2018.
Any thoughts, ideas, and recommendations would be most appreciated.
