I know this question is very wide open, but I'd still very much appreciate insight from those who know the islands well.
Our family will be spending 10 days in Greece in early July and wanted to divide time among a couple of locations, with likely one or two days set aside for Athens. We'll be flying to Beijing for another 10 days after Greece, so my preference would be to spend our time in Greece near small, quiet, authentic villages...but not so quiet that the kids (15,13,7) get restless and bored. We'd like to see Santorini - but I'm uncertain how many days to spend there...and also don't know what other island(s) we should attempt to visit. I had considered flying into Santorini, then perhaps taking a ferry back toward Athens, with a stop over somewhere enroute....is this a good plan...any better suggestions? We'll look to arrange villas in each destination, and probably would not want to spend any less than 3 days in any one location.
Thanks so much in advance
