    heya. I did the London to Athens tour last year, so went through rome to get to athens. Rome is beautiful. There is a long drive thru Napoli/ Pompei from Rome to get to Brindisi to catch the ferry to the Greek mainland. The ferry is good, but full of old people, mainly good for just sleeping. The attendent wakes you up early, like before 6am and you better get up or else you’ll miss getting off – we almost did!
    Athens is awesome, clean and easy to get around. we stayed in this hotel starting with a ‘B’ – finally TV!! very nice rooms and such. More just go for the experience, BUT the guides will ask you to tip them at the end!
    Hope this helps, sorry for rambling i miss it too much
