Default Europe in August on Carnvial?

I have heard conflicting reports that August is not the time to visit Italy and Europe. Some say nothing is open in August and others say its not crowded (and the best time to go) because that is the vacation month.

I posted the 2 possible itineraries below. Can anyone help us with this? Thanks, Carla



ITINERARY #1
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Naples, Italy
Venice, Italy
Dubrovnik, Croatia
Messina, Sicily, Italy
Barcelona, Spain
Cannes, France
Livorno, Italy

ITINERARY #2
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Naples, Italy
Rhodes
Izmir
Istanbul
Athens
Katakolon
Livorno, Italy

How many days are the cruises?

I have done Itin #1 except for Dubrovnik, Croatia and Messina, Sicily, Italy on a Med/trans-Atlantice cruise in 11.05.

Itin #2 is close to what I have booked for 11.08.

Both look good, but in August it is going to be pretty hot over in Greece and Turkey. So, I would pick #1.

That is what I have booked for 11.08, a 12 day cruise RT from Civitavecchia. What I liked the most about it is that you do a little Italy then Greece, Turkey and Egypt. This is on the Grand Princess.

You can check the temps over there now and get some idea as what to expect. But it can get hot in August in the med on Itin #1.
