1. As you can see from the itinerary on the bottom of page, we are trying to do too many things to do for the number of days in Greece we have (24):
see Athens, visit Delphi and Meteora, and possibly Sounion;
see islands of Hydra, Paros, Naxos, Mykonos, and Santorini.
Do you have any suggestions for shortening this?
2. Choice of Places to visit:
- We would like to fly in to or out of Santorini, taking the ferry in the other
direction. Do you think it makes any difference which way?
- How much in advance should we make our
Athens-island airline reservation,
and island hotel reservations?
- Regarding Hydra: Robert wants to stay overnight. He thinks it will
be more enjoyable and prettier at night, but he thinks one night
is enough. What do you think? Can you recommend places to stay
- Do you recommend staying in Paros so we can do day trips to
Naoussa and Anitparos?
- Is Meteora worth the long trip? Should we go on tour bus? Are
there restrictions on women visitors so that the trip wouldn’t be as
nice for Maria? Which is more interesting Meteora or Delphi?
- How long do you need to spend at Delphi to really appreciate it?
One overnight bus trip to Meteora only stops at Delphi for about
an hour or an hour and a half.
- How do you rate going to Sounion for a half day?
Thanks Robert and Maria
