itinerary advice

Heading to Greece in August with family ( 2 grown sons)- trying to fit a good mix in of classical Greece and some island time. I spent a month on Santorini many years ago.

one partial jetlagged day and one full day in Athens ( I have been twice , family has not)
Renting car
overnight day 3 overnight Nafplio
overnight day 4 Olympia
overnight day 5 Delphi
overnight day 6 Meteora ( a lot of driving but on everyone want to see)
overnight day 7 Athens ( return car)
nights 8,9,10 Paros ( 2 1/2 days)
nights 11. 12, 13 santorini ( 2 1/2 days)
14th day fly santorinin - Athens - Home
if i look to spend 2 nights around Patra or Nafpaktos instead of Olympia/ Delphi does that work? I know i will be doing some backtracking to see the sight but hate moving every night. Any recommendations for hotels in that area.

Do I need two nights in Meteorer?

Also in Athens using Starwood points when arrive but for the last night back any other recommendations so am in good place to get to ferry in the morning

Hotels so far looking like- any comments welcome
Amfitriti Hotel in Nafplion
Europa Hotel in Olympia
Fedriades Hotel in Delphi
Dellas Hotel in Kalambaka
Contaratos Beach Hotel in Paros
Volcanos View Hotel in Santorini

thanks for any comments
