Greece for a month!

Jump to last reply

Hi - I am new to the forum and need some travel advice. My wife and I have talked for years about just quitting our jobs and pursuing our dream of travel. Now that we have enough money saved up, we are doing just that! We are starting in SE Asia and making our way back west. We are visiting Greece for a month (out of a 6 month journey) and wanted to know what you guys think of the following itinerary. We've done some research but was curious to know "how long to stay" in each place or if there is something "we simply can't miss" on our first visit to Greece

1) Arriving in Athens from Rome by plane
2) Athens for 3 days (based on research and other forums saying it's sort of "boring"
3) Ferry from Rafina to Mykonos
4) Mykonos for 6 days
5) Ferry to Naxos, Naxos for 4 days
6) Ferry to Paros, Paros for 4 days
7) Ferry to Ios, Ios for 3 days
8) Ferry to Santorini, Santorini for 10 days

We are trying to minimize travel time on ferries, but want to catch at least some decent beaches and food. We will be travelling Greece the entire month of June. Any suggestions?

Is Crete, Corfu, or Rhodes worth the extra travel?
