Greek Mainland Itinerary

Jump to last reply

I'm in the early stages of planning a trip to Greece with friends for next fall (with my job I need to start planning early), and I want to ground-truth our initial itinerary. I'm not worried about specific details; I'm more interested in knowing how this route sounds in general - it's not one I've seen others take.

4 days - Athens
(rent car)
4 days - Nafplio (use as base to explore Corinth, Mycenae, and possibly Mystras)
1 day - Delphi
3 days - Meteora
(return car in Thessaloniki)
4 days - Thessaloniki

My travel pace is generally slow and steady. I don't like long days rushing site to site, or days of endless driving, but I do like to experience as much as I can. I'm far more interested in historic sites, beautiful scenery, good food, and experiencing the local culture, and not interested at all in resorts or beach days.

Based on google maps this doesn't appear to be a busy schedule - but I have been fooled by google maps before. My main question is: does this route look reasonable, or does it look like it's rushing through areas to fast? My secondary question: would this route allow us to experience Greek culture more than, say, a trip to Mykonos and Santorini would?
