Athens, Santorini and either Milos or Naxos in mid-May

Jump to last reply

So, after some further thought we decided that we'll stick with the Cyclades but we can't decide if we should go to Milos or Naxos as the second island and wanted to get some advice...

Both islands seem to have a lot to offer -- Naxos appears to have more to do but Milos appears to have more majestic pictures from what we have found.

The question is, considering that we are in our late 30's and like to wander around and explore, see the scenery, get the feel for the culture, etc. and aren't really concerned about swimming, party scenes, and like to avoid big tourist crowds; which of these two islands will be better for us?

The two itineraries we are considering are:
A) arrive in Athens on 5/7, take a ferry to Milos on 5/8, ferry to Santorini on 5/11 or 5/12, fly from Santorini to Athens on 5/15, and leave Athens on 5/18

B) arrive in Athens on 5/8, take a taxis to Rafina and ferry to Naxos on 5/8, ferry to Santorini on 5/11 or 5/12, fly from Santorini to Athens on 5/15, and leave Athens on 5/18.

Can you catch a cab between Athens and Rafina for the ferry and is it a good idea to ferry from Rafina to Naxos?

Also, we were considering renting a car and driving to Corinth either 5/16 or 5/17; is it a worthwhile destination?

Thanks,
Jim
