Need help with Greece Islands travel. We are arriving in Athens on Sep 11th (1:30PM) and departing on Sep 21st early morning (8:00AM)
We are not party people - beaches, nice scenery, white-washed towns with nice cobbled streets - that's what we love.
Here's a few options - please let us know if this is feasible.
1) Thursday seems like a bad day to arrive in Athens for connecting flights to islands - one option is to do a quick evening in Athens - see Acropolis and stay near airport
2) Friday - Flight t to Naxos or Milos (3 nights) - please advise which is better based on our interest ??
3) Monday - Ferry to Santorini - (3 nights)
4) Thursday - Ferry to Chania.. (pretty much 3 nights) - Saturday night flight - Chania to Athens. Stay in airport.
Depart Sunday morning.....
Is this too much or doable ?? Should we shift nights ??
We can also do this in reverse somewhat - on the day of arrival (we arrive at 1:30PM), there is a 9:00PM Ryanair to Chania - we would have 7 hours to kill - perhaps just do a quick visit to Acropolis and back and skip staying in Athens until the last night ??
Thanks a lot.
