My itinerary for Greece

Jump to last reply

At long last, after many years, I will be visiting Greece next May. I have 24 full days on the ground (no days with flights in them). Here's my plan at the moment:

I arrive at 5:25 pm on a connecting Lufthansa flight from Frankfurt. I see Aegean has a flight to Rhodes leaving at 9:30 pm, and it seems it should be pretty safe that I can make that flight. I suppose hoping to make the 7:30 pm flight is too risky. Anyway, I should start Day 1 on Rhodes.

Day 1-4 Rhodes
Day 5 Ferry to Santorini
Day 6-8 Santorini
Day 9 Ferry to Mykonos
Day 10 Mykonos (just to visit Delos)
Day 11 Ferry to Athens
Day 12 Pick up rental car, head to Nafplio
Day 13-15 Nafplio and environs
Day 16 Olympia
Day 17 Delphi
Day 18 Transit to Meteora
Day 19 Meteora
Day 20 Return to Athens, drop rental car
Day 21-24 Athens

I'd like to fit in Monemvasia (well, and Crete, but I gave up on that one), but I don't see where I trim a day to do it. If you have ideas, let me know.

I know there are some long driving days, but I live in the Bay Area and think nothing of jumping in the car and driving 4 hours to visit my folks in Reno, so I think I will be up to it.

Major interests are historical ruins, sculpture, antique places, lovely views - I take lots of very good vacation photos.

Any comments or suggestions? Any place I should try to fit in? Anywhere I might visit en route to somewhere else? Anything I should take out?
