Greece Itinerary Suggestion: Athens, Crete, Santorini and where else ???

Jump to last reply

DH and I are planning a trip to Greece in mid to late May/early June. Our trip will be about 12-14 days. We prefer to go when it's a little less hot and hopefully fewer crowds. We haven't booked our airfare or hotels yet.

Photography is always our biggest priority so, I'm asking my question purely from a photography standpoint. I'm looking for a suggestion for another island that we could add to our itinerary. We're thinking maybe 5 days in Crete, 3 in Santorini, 2 in Athens and we'd like to add one other island. This is our first trip to Greece and we're looking to see the highlights vs. an in depth itinerary of each island. I know people would say we could spend a month on Crete alone but, we don't need to do that.

If by chance it's possible to get to another island from Santorini for a day trip by ferry, we'd be open to doing that and adding more time there but, something tells me the nearby islands are just too far away to do so. Originally I had thought we'd visit Mykonos but, no one ever seems to recommend it and in fact it's quite the opposite. People seem to really discourage folks from going there. We're not sure what to do but, I know we'd like to add one more island. Any ideas????
