Greece Itinerary and Ferries - Suggestions needed!

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip in early June and have decided on 2 night in Athens, 3 nights in Mykonos, 4 nights in Santorini and 4 nights in Crete.

There are a few parts of the trip that we can not decide on (agree on!). Love to hear from people who have been to these places and what you suggest. My husband and I are in our late 20's-early 30's and want to experience the culture, beaches, night-life and history of Greece. We like to spend time exploring and seeing the attractions, but most of all we like to relax and go at our own pace.

- A suggestion was made to us to spend our first and our last night in Athens ensure we do not miss our flights and a stress free travel. Is this something that is common, or is it better to keep nights in Athens consecutive at he beginning or end of the trip?

- We can't decided whether we want to fly or take the ferry from Athens to Mykonos. Is the flight really worth the extra $$$?

- When in Crete, we are looking to stay in Rethymnon and renting a car to explore the island. Is there a ferry into Rethymnon port? I can only find ferries from Santorini to Crete arriving in Heraklion. If that is the only port, can we rent a car there and drive to Rethymnon?

If you have any other suggestions...we would love to hear them. Thanks so much! J & C
