    I fancy going through East Europe to Greece where we'd send most of the winter
    Then crossing into Italy up to the dolomites in march to ski . That way we'd get a huge variety of different cultures and scenery.
    Partner prefers dropping into Italy through France and spending whole time there. 2 main reasons really - he's never been to italy and wants to be there a long time (as do I) and he's quite wary of eastern European countries as it's unknown plus the migrant worry on top. We'd like to take the dog and he's worried about all the border controls in eastern Europe
    I'd appreciate any ideas from people who've done these trips preferably with a dog l.
    Cheers.

    Beneluxe Mixed with a bit of Germany. Alps (Austrian, Swiss, Italian, French). Drive over to the Pyrenees, Andorra and into Spain and spend the rest in Portugal?.

    Or does it have to be Greece?

    The weather in Sicily will be better than Greece in the winter I think, unless you want to go on to Crete. But Sicily has become the new migrant hotspot now the flow from Turkey has diminished - but that might change of course. :)

    Hahaha you dilema sounds similar ours. We are just discussing where next and 'think' we have settled on Greece because it looks drier but decision may change. We are currently in Finland and going to make our way down through Eastern Europe! We have read up on the border control and seems OK but will let you know.
    We've spent time in Italy and Slovenia (excellent) with our dog and fine. We went to Slovenia because we were nervous too and just wanted a taster. You know it was one of the most beautiful countries both in terms of scenery and people.

    Depends where you mean by 'Eastern Europe'.
    We went to Crete a couple of years ago in the motorhome with a dog via Slovenia, Croatia, Montengro and Albania. Great trip and no problems anywhere. Here is the map of the route we took and the sites we stayed at.

    Hey Dude, you don't have a live link to that map do you? I would like to zoom in a bit to get more info on the route you took.
