After almost 2 weeks of planning, i have finalised my tour and it includes 4 days in Greece. A couple travelling with a 8months old.
It can sound rushed, but we only get so few holidays, and I always try and make the most of it. The current plan is
Day 1: Arrive in Athens on a monday morning (11am), in late July. Check in. Perhaps go to Cape Sounion for the sunset. I was looking for afternoon/evening tours and this is what came up. Any other recommendations? Back in Athens, dinner, sleep.
Day 2: All day in Athens. Take a morning guided tour to the major sites. Half day left for the museums. Any other spots we can go to?
Day 3: Morning at leisure. In the afternoon, take the fast ferry to mykonos.
- Is this reasonable and doable or we are being too ambitious? I have all the tickets etc. decided, once I have confirmed it here, I will book everything.
- Also, any other places I should see or visit on Day 1, 2 or 3.
-Most convenient location for the hotel to do all this
- What is the best way to go to Mykonos. I do not want to spend 5 hours in a ferry, so is the fast ferry doable with a small baby. seasickness would sort of spoil things. I looked at flights, but the cheap ones are at 5 in the morning which are not very useful.
-I was thinking about rushing through the sites on Days 1 and 3 and going to delphi on day 2, but it seems too touristy to me. and too long a drive with a baby as well.
I'll post the mykonos question on that forum, but once we arrive on 23rd afternoon/evening, we'll stay there for 2 nights before flying out on 25th afternoon.
Many thanks for your advice.
