Greece - Travel Schedule for late August/September - 13 days

Jump to last reply

I on my own and now with my husband have traveled extensively. However I am starting to hit a wall in planning our trip to Greece.

I originally was thinking to do Santorini - Naxos- Athens. (4-4-3 days respectively.) But it has been exceedingly difficult to get hotel reservations on the islands for late August or early September.

This is what I think I can line up: 3 nights/Hotel Enplo in Santorini and 3 nights/Hotel Grotta in Naxos and 3 nights/New Hotel in Athens. I am very worried that Santorini is overrun with tourists and has become one big tourist trap. Hate that.

I have heard and read lovely reports about Peloponnese. I am starting to think about adding on 2 nights there. We have the time to do it since we have reduced the time on the islands. We would do the islands first and then work our way to Athens. Not sure how to get from islands to Peloponnese or from there to Athens.

I would appreciate Fodorites weighing in on this plan. Any recommendations would be welcome.

Many thanks.
