First Time to Greece

Jump to last reply

I'm starting to plan a trip to Greece which is a part of a larger to trip to Italy and possibly one other Mediterranean destination. I am traveling alone and I would like to go to (I think?) Santorini and or Mykonos for three or four days. I know virtually nothing about the Greek Isles, but the pictures I have seen of Santorini over the years have blown me away. I am not a fan of sitting around by a pool doing nothing, and I can also get tired of a place after a few days. I am also concerned about traveling alone in what seems to be a very couple-y kind of place.

I would love any suggestions or advice. What are the differences between Santorini and Mykonos? Should I visit both islands or just one. Is three days in Santorini a good amount of time? What kinds of things are there to do other than chill by the pool.

Thank you.
