6 or 7 days in Cyclades, Need itinerary help from Athens

Jump to last reply

I am planning to conclude my trip to Europe in September with 6 or 7 days in the Cyclades. Currently, I am planning on leaving Athens on Monday, September 10th, after spending the weekend there, and flying out of either Santorini or Mykonos open-jaw back to the United States on either the following Sunday or Monday, so 6 or 7 nights. I have found flight options for both cities that will get me back to the States in one day with no overnights. I need help configuring those 6 or 7 days. I have never been to Greece before, and I know I want to visit at least 2 islands. My boyfriend and I are looking for sun, beaches, water activites, food and drink, as we are definitely wanting to go out a few nights. Would like to see Mykonos and Santorini, with maybe a day in Paros or Naxos or Ios, or a day trip to Delos from Mykonos.

Also, heard that the traditional ferry into Santorini is amazing for photos (versus the high-speed cat from Athens), should I go to Mykonos first then down to Santorini or vice-versa, would Mykonos be fun for going out on a Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, versus the weekend?

We will have seen lots of historical sites in Athens, so we are looking for fun and sun and great photo ops, though I think a day-trip to Delos would be interesting. Thanks in advance for advice!
