Trip Report Athens and Greek islands in the spring

Jump to last reply

We wanted our trip to Greece to include Athens and Crete, as well as Santorini and Mykonos. We found the perfect trip with Gate 1 Travel's 13 Day Greek Islander with Crete.

This was an independent trip - it included air, transfers, ferries, and hotels, but was not guided or escorted. We spent our first night in Athens at the Hotel Stanley on the recommendation of Gate 1's travel consultant. We loved the location - we watched the sun go down and the lights come up on the Acropolis while we ate dinner in the rooftop restaurant.

We spent 3 nights in Crete, 3 in Santorini, 3 in Mykonos and 2 more nights in Athens before returning home. We added the volcano cruise in Santorini, the trip to Delos from Mykonos, the Acropolis tour in Athens, and a day trip to Delphi.

We rented cars on all 3 islands and recommend this as the best way to see the most on each one.

This trip gave us enough time everywhere to really have a good visit, sample several restaurants and take (literally) thousands of photos!
