Eurotrip - Athens to Santorini

Jump to last reply

Hi - so we booked a trip through tripmasters.com (a great site if you want to travel to EU from US). We travel through Delta to and from the US to Barcelona for 3 days - head to Santorini (1.5 layover in Athens) for 3 days and then (3.5 layover again in Athens) Rome for 2 days before we journey back home.

We have not honeymooned yet but been married for 5 years. So this is literally the trip of a lifetime for us and we have planned a lot of it and left certain parts to spontaneity but recently had 1 pressing concern!

Our flight from Barcelona through Aegean Airlines cuts it pretty close in Athens. Is 1.5 hours enough as we have 1 check-in bag. Will this be something that can be accommodated at Barcelona for a direct stamp to Santorini or did we really not plan this as well as we thought! It is too late for any changes but I want to brace myself for any bad news before hand so any feedback would be appreciated! We are travelling on Wednesday - mid-afternoon in September.

PS - One more note - return from Santorini has a 3.5 hours layover in Athens- From that time we guess we could possibly have an hour outside the airport to look around. Is an hour enough for us to go out and explore a bit. Any cool monuments which are walking distance or within a few miles/km from the airport which you think we might be able to gander and take photos around?
