Greek Itinerary Help: 8 days Early November w/ 12-yr-old

Jump to last reply

I'll be taking my 12-year-old nephew on his first trip abroad, and was thinking about doing something along the following. We'll be renting a car to keep travel times down a bit. My thoughts:

Day 1: Arrive Athens, drive to Nafplio via Epidaurus Theatre (time allowing).
Day 2: Guided tour at Mycenae, afternoon stroll around Nafplion or the Theater if we missed it;
Day 3: Nafplion Archaeology Museum, Palmidi, travel to Arachova (by way of Patras to avoid backtrack? Other suggestions for a short detour on the way?)
Day 4: Guided tour of Temple of Apollo/Delphi at sunrise, travel to Kastraki/Meteora;
Day 5: Meteora, Day hiking;
Day 6: Drive to Athens (by way of Larissa? Other suggestions for a detour here? Extra time in Meteora?) (stay near acropolis)
Day 7: Athens (stay near acropolis)
Day 8: Athens (sleep near airport)
Day 9: Depart early morning.

In addition to criticism/confirmation of the itinerary, three questions:
(1) Where (within the itinerary) would you pick to take the kid to a busy market? I assume Athens, but perhaps ya'll have some off-the-track insight for a large/raucous experience.
(2) Advice on hiring reputable guides with excellent English. I was thinking Tours by Locals?
(3) Would you recommend forgoing Nafplion or Meteora in favor of Pelion or Mani?

Thank you!!
