We are mid-40s, moderately adventurous...sightseeing, culture, relaxation with a bit of partying thrown in.
I'm getting closer to a draft of my itinerary. Here's what I have so far:
Sep 21/22 Fly JFK to Athens
Sep 22 Fly Athens to Crete
Sep 23 Crete
Sep 24 Crete
Sep 25 Ferry Crete to Santorini
Sep 26 Santorini
Sep 27 Ferry Santorini to Mykonos
Sep 28 Mykonos
Sep 29 Mykonos
Sep 30 Ferry Mykonos to Athens
Oct 1 Athens
Oct 2 Athens
Oct 3 Fly Athens to JFK
Wouldn't mind at least a partial hike at Samaria Gorge.
Planning a day trip to Delos.
Is Delphi day-trip accessible from Athens?
Maybe swap any of the above for anything else, e.g. skip Crete and allow more time in Santorini or add Paros/Naxos?
