5 or 6 Day Greece Trip Help

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling to Greece 5/28-6/2. I am traveling by myself and I am a woman in my 20s. I am flying into Athens and won't arrive until 9 pm on the 28th. I am looking to see the main historical sites in Athens, but would also like to relax on the beach. Also, I enjoy adventure-type activities, like snorkeling for example, or that huge gorge that everyone hikes. I like going to restaurants and enjoying good food, but I don't foresee going out to bars or anything like that because I am a young girl traveling by myself.

Can you please suggest for me how many days I should stay in Athens, what other islands I should travel to, if I should plan these trips by myself or order excursions from my hotel/a travel company, how to get from island to island (via ferry or other mode of transportation), any hotel suggestions you may have for me (safety is the most important factor, besides that I would choose location over luxury but I am on a budget so I'm looking for somewhere around $100/night, but can go a little higher for a nice place if you have some place you really loved). I would LOVE a hotel that plans excursions for you.

I would also appreciate restaurant suggestions, any specific activities you enjoyed, and advice on how to get from the airport to my hotel (and getting around to the different historic sites).

Thank you in advance for any advice you can give! I am an experienced traveler, I have traveled to around 40 countries, but I have never traveled in Greece and I am not familiar with any part of it.
