We will visit to Vienna for a few days and then spend some time in Istanbul prior to the beginning of our cruise.
After the cruise we are travelling a little more economically through Italy via train, staying in Airbnb with friends.
Then we return to Istanbul for an Intrepid tour of Turkey. We have travelled with Intrepid twice before and find their trips are great for getting to know people and experiencing a little local culture.
My bags are almost packed :)
