    Well, why not do both?  We did.  We did Rome, Santorini, Mykonos and Athens over 2 weeks.  Loved every bit of it.  Santorini beaches or rocky, (they’re called black sand) but Mykonos beaches are sandy.

    Also Istanbul is amazing and way better than Athens.  Athens is definitely skipable if you’re pressed for time.

    @ladydi5485:  Either one would be great!  Are you planning to go with a tour company or travel independently?  If you’re an experienced traveler you could do either, but the Italy itinerary covers a lot of area and may be too aggressive for two weeks on your honeymoon.  Ther’s so much to see that you may think about focusing on one area of Italy.  For example, Rome, Capri, Sorrento and Pompeii would be do-able and you’d explore one area of Italy without having to move across the country.  To explore Rome thoroughly at a comfortable pace could easily take 5 days, especially if you’re feeling jet lagged.

    Athens and 2 islands also sounds like a fantastic honeymoon itinerary and it’s not hard to move between the islands.  PM me if you have additional questions 🙂

    Darling Husband and I went to Milan, Florence and Rome for our first holiday together three and a half years ago. The food was fantastic and we had a lovely time.

    If you’re happy to move around a bit, then I agree with PP – why not try to fit in both? They are both easy countries to get around, and you could choose a few highlights to hit in each. I personally loved Greece – the weather, the food, the friendliness of the locals – have you considered a cruise that tours some of the islands? Both would be wonderful though, and if you go for Italy then I would definitely recommend setting aside a few days for Rome – so much to see there! Either way it will be wonderful.

    I think Italy is great, Capri or Sorrento are great places, Capri is more resort ($$$$$) and. Gorgeous but it depends on when you go, we were there in the off the tourist season and NOTHiNG including hotels were open.Sorrento is awesome, we stayed in a hotel up on a hill over looking the Bay of Naples and on a lemon grove and it was incredible. I don’t know about Greece now, there have been some issues with the politics and economy and union strikes trapping tourist because the bus and trains stop.
