Architecture & culture trip to Greece

My wife and I would are considering a visit to Greece at the end of August (Sep 1 is our anniversary) for 6-8 days. Our interest is in art, culture & architecture, with perhaps a few picturesque places thrown in. A romantic Sep 1 evening would be nice. We are not particularly keen on beaches or shopping. What places/itinerary would fit our needs?

athens for its classic period monuments and the neoclassical small buildings of old athens..also the new modern space olympic buildings are great for a visit(calatrava complex) see byzantine,cycladic,and benaki museum just to take a great taste of greek architecture..cyclades islands are special for their minimal unique cycladic architecture..i can say the truly greek minimal design....also corfu island is something like a little greek toscane.at last peloponese,mystras,mani,monembasia,pilio are places with great rocky buildings and houses...completely traditional greek mountain architecture really beautifull and not very well known....

From June-October the famous Hellenic Festival is on. There are world class performances of music, theatre and dance taking place in the ancient theatre of Herodes Atticus on the south slope of the Acropolis Hill.

As part of the same festival, there are also performances (usually in modern Greek) of ancient Greek drama in the magnificent ancient theatre of Epidaurus in the Peloponnese and also (mostly rock and pop) concerts in the theatre of Lycabettus Hill in Athens.

Check out the festival's website:

www.hellenicfestival.gr

There you can find the full programme and also have a virtual view of teh imposing theatre of Herodes Atticus
