This is my first time posting here, and I appreciate any/all help! We are planning a three week honeymoon in Europe for July/August 2014. It's our third time in Europe, and we've been to Paris, Amsterdam, Madrid and throughout Italy.
We're having trouble paring down our itinerary. We MUST go to Paris first because we'll be getting pictures done there, but given that we've already been there, we're fine with limiting our stay to three nights. Afterwards, I'm torn between limiting our trip to just France and Spain (doing more of a "deep dive" into the regions) or adding in a week in Greece (which I'm favoring because we've never been and it just feels like a cool honeymoon location).
Here's a tentative itinerary we're pondering:
Paris - 3 nights
Barcelona (via train) - 4 nights
Valencia - 3 nights
Mallorca - 3 nights (tentative)
Athens (via air) - 2 nights
Santorini - 2 nights
Crete - 2 nights
Athens - 1 night
Fly home to NYC
Does this sound too ambitious? Is there anything I should consider skipping or adding, given that we're looking for a mix of new/exotic, traditional, and romantic for our honeymoon? Would we be better off lengthening our stays in France and Spain to get more immersion from our trip, saving Greece for another voyage? If so, any recommendations for where to find/what to prioritize in these two countries to make our trip feel unique?
I so sincerely appreciate any feedback anyone has!
