Itinerary help! How many days in the islands?

Jump to last reply

We're planning to fly from Los Angeles to Athens around September 26th for 2 weeks. I was thinking about the following itinerary but was wondering if I should allocate less time to Santorini and try and squeeze in Naxos as well (or perhaps do Naxos instead of Paros?). We want it to be relaxing, especially at the beginning when we first get there what with the jetlag, but we're not very good at lying on the beach the whole time and like to explore. Would really appreciate your input!

Day 1. Arrive in Athens and get connecting flight to Santorini.
Day 2: Santorini
Day 3: Santorini
Day 4: Santorini
Day 5: Santorini
Day 6: Ferry to Paros
Day 7: Paros
Day 8: Paros
Day 9: Fly to Athens. Drive to Nafplion.
Day 10: Nafplion (visit surrounding areas Mycenae, Corinth, Tyrins and Epidaurus)
Day 11: Nafplion (visit surrounding areas Mycenae, Corinth, Tyrins and Epidaurus).
Day 12: Drive to Athens. Visit the Acropolis and Parthenon in the late afternoon.
Day 13: Day trip to Delphi. Stay overnight in Athens.
Day 14. Fly home.
