I'm planning a honeymoon trip to Greece in late September - Early October. I'm looking for some advice about my itinerary as it initially feels very ambitious.
Day 1 - Arrive in Athens late morning. Relax, get acquainted, and sleep.
Day 2-3 - 2-day trip to visit Delphi and Meteora. Overnight stay in Kastraki. End back in Athens. Maybe a private tour from Famous George.
Day 4-5 - Embark to Rhodes by plane if possible. Visit the famous sites there and catch a flight to Santorini. Stay in Oia.
Day 6-8 - Santorini R&R & ferry to Milos. Stay in Milos.
Day 9-10 - Milos and travel back to Athens. Stay in Athens at end.
Day 11-12 Athens day excursion (if we aren't tired, a day trip to Mycenae).
I'm wondering if the out-of-the-way trips to Meteora or Rhodes are worth it. Rhodes seems like the most difficult and time-consuming to reach. I definitely want to hit Delphi, and Meteora seems more breathtaking and different than going to Olympia for a 2-day mainland trip.
Anyway, some advice for an inexperienced American traveler would be much appreciated. She and I are both in our 20's, pretty active, and enjoy exploring and museums as well as R&R on beaches. We aren't into clubs or crazy nightlife, more Romantic scenes and Mediterranean culture experiences (as much as that differs from club life).
