Greek trip Re-boot: March 2016

Jump to last reply

Thanks a mill for all the good advice on my prior thread. We had to postpone our trip but plan to go next March. As recommended, starting a new thread for our first trip to Greece.

We are pretty active and like history/archeological sites. Prefer views/walks/boats/trains/relaxing & sightseeing over water sports/fine dining/drinking; ok getting a car and driving though.

Trip so far:
Mar 9 SFO to FRA via ORD Booked bus class with miles
Mar 10 arrive FRA; flight to Berlin (not yet booked)
Mar 10/11/12 Berlin
Mar 12 flight to Athens (not yet booked)
Mar 12-18 or 19 Greece: up for grabs
Mar 18/19 fly to Naples or Rome
Mar 1819/20/21/22 Amalfi Coast
Mar 23 near FCO (6 a.m. flight!)
Mar 24 FCO to AMS and AMS to SFO Booked bus class with miles

I contacted Fantasy Travel recommended on another thread; They asked if something like the following would work for us. Any thoughts?

Day 2: Athens. After breakfast we meet you at your hotel or close by, in order to start the morning Half Day Athens Sightseeing Tour (see details in the tours sections) The remaining afternoon is at your leisure.

Day 3: Delphi/Kalambaka. Early in the morning, departure for the 2 days tour in order to visit Delphi with the Archaeological site.After the visit depart for Kalambaka, passing through the picturesque villages and towns of central Greece. Dinner and overnight.

Day 4: Athens/Meteora. Amidst striking scenery, perched on huge rocks which seem to be suspended in mid-air, stand ageless monasteries where you can see exquisite specimens of Byzantine art. Return to Athens via Trikala, Lamia, Thermopylae (visit the monument of Leonidas). Arrive in Athens early in the evening. On arrival you have a transfer to your hotel for your overnight stay.

Day 5: Athens/Santorini . Morning transfer from your hotel to the port by our mini bus or by our taxi driver to embark on the ferry to Santorini. Upon arrival we meet you at the port and transfer you to your hotel for 2 nights stay.
