1. Re: which island from athens

Hey and welcome spadge:-) There are a number of isles that may fit the bill for you..take a look at Naxos and Paros..both w/easy access from Athens and offer some beautiful beaches, villages..Good idea to read up on the various isles in the Cyclades and see which you feel would be best for you...Just to note, would not count on connecting same day (morning) from isle to airport for flight out! Best to save Athens portion of your stay for the end..or at least make your way over to the mainland (Athens) the night before your flight to ensure no delays/cancellations resulting in a missed home-bound flight! Enjoy!
