Greece Travel Advice

Jump to last reply

Hi there. My friend and I are backpacking all over Europe in June-August 2016.

We definitely want to go to Greece, to Athens and Santorini.

I'm just having trouble trying to sort out a travel plan to get there. It seems to be really expensive to fly from Italy, where we are before heading to Greece. We are backpacking, and thus looking for cheapest options. Below is part of our itinerary we have mapped out, for before & after Greece. If you have any suggestions to re-arrange our itinerary for cheaper options to travel to Greece, please suggest.

Venice, Italy - July 16-19
Florence, Italy - July 19-24
Rome, Italy - July 24-28
Naples, Italy - July 28-Aug 1
Athens, Greece - August 1-4
Santorini, Greece - Aug 4-7 (travel back thru Athens)
Dubrovnik, Croatia - Aug 7-10
Split, Croatia - Aug 10-14

So basically my question is how do I travel to Greece for the cheapest price!

A second question: How does one travel from Athens to Santorini? I have heard of ferries but they take a very long time and sound unreliable.

Thank you for your advice and help!

M
