Honeymoon in Greece: Athens - Santorini - Crete? Suggestions needed!

Jump to last reply

Hello to all you fellow Greece lovers!

My fiance and I have recently purchased our plane tickets to Greece for our honeymoon (May 13-23). We arrive the morning of the 13th in Athens and are thinking of immediately hopping a ferry/plane to get our trip started and will need to return to Athens by the 22nd.

We know we want to hit Santorini and are also throwing around the idea of heading to Crete, Mykonos, or some other smaller island convenient to our route. While we don't mind being on-the-go, since this is our honeymoon, we thought we might want to narrow it down to 2-3 islands total so we can do more relaxing. I know Santorini will be touristy, but generally we love to go somewhere with a mix of beautiful landscape/beaches, towns for exploring, a fun local scene, and great food (although I'm sure that won't be hard to come by!).

Does anyone have any suggestions for:

-Which island(s) to visit in addition to Santorini?
-How many days/nights to stay in Santorini?
-Where on the islands to stay (what towns/areas)?
-Any specific search engines/travel agencies to use to book accommodations. We want something special (maybe even with a private jacuzzi - although this may be a pipe dream!), but don't have the funds to spend over $250 or so per night on average. I'd love to do a mix of in-town and water-front hotels as we move from island to island.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions - any help would be really appreciated. We can't wait!
