We have *finally* chosen ( rather late in the day, too, I might add:-)) to visit Greece over London/Normandy. We had planned to, last year,and I'd posted a few questions then, but that trip didn't pan out, so here I am back again on this forum :-), fingers crossed.
Will 12 days suffice for visiting Athens, Kos and Crete? I know we'll barely graze the surface since Crete alone needs several days to explore its wonders, but for first-timers who are mainly interested in Greek mythology/archaeology ( not nightlife, shopping, sunbathing on beaches) will we be able to see some of the major sights at least?
We would love to spend a day or two in Corfu ( for its associations with Durrell)as well, but felt we needed to give that up, given our limited vacation days :-(.
How should we split the days? Could we visit Kos on a day trip from Athens or do we need to stay there overnight? Should we do Athens-Kos-Crete-Athens or Athens-Crete-Kos-Athens?
Thanks a lot.
