A Vacation Itinerary: Athens to Venice

Take a ride up the Mediterranean and into the Adriatic and you’ll find yourself easily accessing two of the biggest destinations in the world. Traveling to these tourist hot-spots, I found myself seeking more than the made-for-tourist areas.

    These are all great reasons to get the Athens. But for me, the history and culture of Greece and Greek mythology is the magnet that will draw me there. Of course, these are all valid reasons and each is the icing on the cake.

    I asked my girlfriend where she wants to celebrate her 26th birthday, and I guess she already read this article because she answered Southern Europe.

    Can you suggest a local food that we could try? A trip couldn’t be a complete journey without a taste of a local dish or snack!

    How much would be the Gondola ride? And how long does it take?

        Vacation is always pricey. If you want to enjoy your vacation, your budget should be much.

    I’m glad you featured the Southern parts of Europe. If you want something more of nature, then this is the perfect article for you.
