My fiance and I will be going to Greece for the last weekend in March. We will be flying in and out of Athens, and aren't sure what's worth seeing in this time of year. We would love a romantic, luxury and authentic (not touristy!) kind of vacation. In Athens, we will be staying at Hotel Grande Bretagne. Here is a tentative schedule we have, but we are also open to taking a mini trip to the islands for half of our stay....which one is nice this time of year? Heard Ios, Folegandros, Spetses, Santorini, Crete are good.
OUR TENTATIVE SCHEDULE:
March 22- Arrive in Athens
Hike to the Acropolis, Parthenon
That night – rooftop bar for a great view of the acropolis, drink
Kalamaki Kolonaki souvlaki restaurant
New Acropolis Museum
That night – Athens bar crawl - tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g189400-d1…
