Help with Itinerary

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip to Greece with our 14 year old son in May this year. My son loves Greek mythology while we would like to do sightseeing and island hopping. We are not interested in nightlife. We have about 10-12 days including travel time. Would appreciate help / suggestions on the tentative itinerary we've drawn up :

Day 1 : Athens
Day 2 : Athens
Day 3 : Day trip to Delphi
Day 4 : Day trip to the Peloponnese
Day 5 : Athens
Day 6 : Crete (by air)
Day 7 : Crete
Day 8 : Santorini (by ferry - have heard that the approach to Santorini by ferry is beautiful - but that would mean that we have to take a slow ferry)
Day 9 : Santorini
Day 10 :Santorini
Day 11 : Mykonos (by ferry)
Day 12 : Mykonos
Day 13 : Back to Athens - take flight back at 5 pm

Is this doable or should I drop one of the islands ? If so, which one should I drop ? Should I keep more number of days for the islands ?

Thanks
