Athens & Greek Islands Mid-May

Jump to last reply

We are big on planning and researching trips, but not big on advance planning, and so it is that we're now thinking about going to Greece in mid-May. Only problem: we're overwhelmed by the amount of options. We were originally thinking a cruise through the islands, but having only been on one cruise in all of our travels and not especially liking it, we've decided to go it on our own.

Here are some preliminary thoughts:

Flying from NY to Athens (prices are all above $1,000 r/t - is this normal?)

We want to spend a few days (is 2 enough to see the prime sights?) in Athens and then head to the islands.

We've heard good things about Santorini and were thinking of that as a home base. Recommendations on places to stay would be great.

As for other islands, we'd love suggestions. We'd like to see some ruins, some beaches, and eat some good food.

We're thinking of 7-10 days.
