greece in six days

We are travelling to Greece in late March. If you only had six days in all of Greece, where would you go, and how would you travel? Tour bus? On your own? Thanks!

1. Re: greece in six days

Assuming you are flying into Athens you could:

Do a day trip to Delphi

Do a day trip to Aegina, a nearby island

Travel to Nafplion and spend a night there. Visit Mycanae and quite possibly Ancient Corinth (time pending) on your return to Athens.

Spend two days seeing the sites of Athens with the Acropolis and it's museum at the top of the list.

Not necessarily in the above order though. Although rushed it is possible and can be made easier by joining tours. However, for the day trip to Aegina you're better off going alone.

For 6 days, you should spend at least 2 days in Athens, 1 day in Delphi (day trip by public bus) and 2 days in Santorini (I suggest you fly there). You might not even have a full 6 days, so you can always spend that extra day in Athens before catching your flight home. You can even include a day trip to Cape Sounion if time permits.

If your 6 days are including your days of arrival and departure you will only have 4 full days for exploring.

Where to go and what to see is dependant upon your personal preferences.

I would concentrate in Athens and nearby attractions, such as ajarnandy and greektraveller suggested. Do not try pack too much in your short schedule.
