My girlfriend and I will be in Greece from Oct 7-15 and are looking for some advice. We are planning to be in Santorini for 2-3 days, one other island for 3 days, and Athens for 2 days at the end. We realize that it will be fairly late in the season but we would like to avoid crowds and try to save a bit of money. We are considering Naxos, Paros, or Mykonos. We're hoping not to have to rent a car if possible, and would like to be able to spend time on the beach if the weather is nice enough. Would one of these islands be better than the others for an October visit?
Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
