DW, kids (DD6, DD4), and I are travelling to Greece May 14-26. We're a couple from India turning the big 4-Oh this year. Rough plans are these.
May 14: Land at Athens 1220hrs. Rent a car and drive to Meteora. 2 nights. (4 hours??)
May 16th: Drive down to Delphi. 1 night
May 17 - 19 - Back to Athens.
May 20-22 - Ferry to Naxos. Olympic air on return.
May 23-25 - Drive to Nafplio, Mycenae, and Epidavros
May 26 - Fly back home.
To me this seems like a relaxed kind of trip. Have to do two sets of car rentals as we are meeting family who are flying into Athens on 17th. Some questions I have.
- Some of the members suggested budget car rentals in Athens. Is this the best one?
- Are the meteora hikes child friendly? or extremely rugged?
- Athens - Naxos - thinking of Olympic airlines on the return leg and ferry to Athens. Got a fare of E150 for 4 of us which seems quite reasonable. Good and dependable airline?
- Can someone help with a routing of sites in Athens. We will most likely stay near city center, but wanted help on how to plan to visit the key sites - I don't plan to drive in Athens so public transport and legs mostly. Thanks a bunch. Very excited about this trip.
