Greek Islands - 30th Wedding Anniversary

Jump to last reply

We will be celebrating our 30th wedding Anniversary in 2014. We are trying to finalize where we want to go for 14 days. We are thinking of Italy or Greece. On this thread, I would like to ask your opinion on Greece.

First, I want to let you know that we have been to Greece once before for 2 weeks. We toured Athens, then rented a car and did the Pelopponeese area, Nafplion, then up toward Delphi and Meteora. Then we flew to Santorini and spent 4 nights in Oia. We just loved our vacation. My husband is Cypriot so that really helped as well.

We enjoy seeing the country, enjoying the culture, and good food. We like the beach a bit as well but that is not the main reason we go. We are not night life type of people in our late 50s. We prefer very nice dinners out experiencing the culinary eats and strolling.

Our budget per night accommodation would be up to $300 Canadian. We have also stayed in places for less that have been a charm.

So our question to this Board is - what 2 islands would you recommend we consider? At this point, we have already landed on Crete being one places we need to go.

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. You people are always very helpful.

The time of year we would go is mid September and are flying transatlantic.

Have a good day!
