Itinerary: 13 day trip to Greece

Jump to last reply

Hi, I'm 22 and my friend, also 22, have made a last minute decision to go to Greece after college graduation (Late May 2014). We are both experienced European travelers, but haven't been to Greece. We would like to hit some of the major tourist destinations, but not try to see everything. Some time to relax would be nice too, though we realize our schedule might be hectic. Here is our tentative itinerary for the trip. (Nothing is booked yet, not even flights, so any suggestions or advice is much appreciated).

Day 1: Leave from LAX
Day 2: Arrive in Athens at night, check into hotel
Day 3: Athens
Day 4: Athens
Day 5: Athens
Day 6: Leave Athens (Piraeus) in morning and arrive in Mykonos in afternoon
Day 7: Mykonos
Day 8: Mykonos
Day 9: Leave Mykonos at about 2 pm and arrive in Santorini at 6 pm
Day 10: Santorini
Day 11: Santorini
Day 12: Santorini- leave late at night for Athens (we would get beds to try to sleep for a few hours)
Day 13: Arrive in Athens in early morning
Leave Athens in afternoon and arrive in LAX the same day

Is the number of days at each place adequate? Too much in one place over another? Any major flaws in the plan? Do you recommend different islands over the ones we were considering? Also, any recommendations on cheap hotels (about $100/night/room) without sacrificing location or fun things we might be interested in would be greatly appreciated!!
Thank you!
