We are in the early, early stages of planning a Spring 2015 trip---looking for any and all suggestions----sooo many islands----soooo little time!!
Here is our first imaginary "schedule"
Arrive in Athens---connect to Crete
3+ Days exploring around Hania
Ferry to Santorini--spend 2 days
Ferry to Mykonos--spend 2 days---yes I've read pros/cons about this stop but???? husband wants to cross it off his "bucket list"---unless I can cross it off for a different stop!!
Possibly 2 days in Hydra--if schedule allows
Finish up back in Athens---for 2-3 days then POOF back to USA
We love walking and exploring all areas - soaking up the history--food--wine!! and culture--and would love to try and stay in local/small homes-hotels
Will have 14 days- including flight time to plan
Planning for the end of April or first part of May---thinking this time of the year, will not be too crowded BUT will the ferry/flying dolphin schedules be limited??
Sorry this is so long, but just trying to get an early "mind wrap" of how to squeeze it all in!!
Thank you for all your help!!
