I've booked flights to Athens, returning a week later for my husband and I from 20 May. My question is how best to spend this time...
I've always wanted to visit Athens to see the historic sites and museums and really enjoy European city breaks for the different culture and eating & drinking experience... but we'd also like some relaxing time and to make the most of our trip.
At the moment I'm thinking of spending 3 nights in Athens at the start of our week then 3 nights on an island that's not too far away - potentially Hydra or Aegina before spending a final night in Athens the night before our return flight (which is at 2pm). We had originally thought we'd visit Santorini, however I think the travel by boat is too much for our short trip and flying adds too much cost.
Would appreciate views on the optimum itinerary for our short trip!
