Hi hope if anyone could help me through this...
I'm getting married in feb 2009 so making plans to visit Switzerland, Italy and Greece
i just wanna know the routes which to visit first as i'm coming frm New delhi (India)
and also how many days atleast should i spent to visit these places??
You have to give us a little more info. to be of help to you. (1) Where do you plan to make "landfall" (country city in Europe? Do ypu plan to depart form India from thesame place, or would uou consider an "open jaw" itinrary?
(2) How much time will you have to spend overall?
(3) What are you interested in - - - wintersports, cities, museums, etc.?
(4) How do you plan to travel - - car, planes, trains?
(5) How important is Greece in your plans. It really is fairly out of the way adn not easy to get to from Italy or Switzerland, unless you plan to fly on an open jaw intinerary.
As a rule you should plan to spent 2-3 weeks per country. For Rome or Florence you should plan on 5-7 days, Venice 1-3 days, Naples 5 days. Athens 3-5 days if you go.
Note that it will be very cold in Europe in February. It will feel especially cold to you. In the mountains in Switzerland temperatures can be as low as -10 C when it is 20 C in New Delhi. You'll need really warm clothing. Plan on about 200 EUR and more to buy yourself boots, winter pants, a jacket, winter underwear, scarf, hat and gloves in Europe.
It is difficult to visit Greece in winter, as most places are closed. The best attraction of Greece are the islands, especially the sun and the beach in summer. In winter the ferries often do not run and hotels are closed. I do not recommend going at this time.
thanks for ur replies..helped me loadss
