Greek Honeymoon

Jump to last reply

Hi all,

I'm new to Fodor's, but an experienced traveler.

My Fiance and I are getting married on August 16, 2014. We'll leave for Greece on the 17th, and arrive on the 18th. We have already booked our flights (Arriving in Athens at 10:00 AM Monday the 18th, and Departing on Sunday the 31st 12:00 NOON).

I have researched many different Greek travel agencies, and they seem to be extremely overpriced. They're coming back with approximately €4,000-5,000 for the two of us. This includes transport between islands, and all hotels - however not much more. I have started researching on my own, and have been able to find the same trip for approximately €2,000 (Using Skyscanner.ca, greekferries.forth-crs.gr and booking.com).

Basically, I'd like to know if anyone with experience traveling the Greek Islands could comment on my proposed itinerary and advise if I'm cramming too little, too much, etc.

Monday 18th Athens
Tuesday 19th Delphi
Wednesday 20th Athens - Mykonos (via Piraues)
Thursday 21st Mykonos
Friday 22nd Mykonos - Paros
Saturday 23rd Paros
Sunday 24th Paros - Naxos
Monday 25th Naxos
Tuesday 26th Naxos - Santorini
Wednesday 27th Santorini
Thursday 28th Santorini
Friday 29th Santorini
Saturday 30th Santorini - Athens
Sunday 31st Athens

Basically, we'd arrive in Athens, drive/bus to Delphi and stay one night. Then take a Ferry to Mykonos and travel between all islands via Ferry.

Finally, we'll fly back from Santorini to Athens. That flight is 7:00 AM on the Sunday morning. We arrive in Athens at approx 7:50 AM, and then I'm planning to stay in the airport until our international flight home 12:00 NOON. I've heard that flights can be cancelled from Santorini to Athens often - is this risky?

Any other thoughts are REALLLLY appreciated. If you think there are islands we're missing, please advise.

Really looking forward to hearing from all of you, and want to thank all of those in advance who take the time to comment!

Sheldon
