Mykonos, Santorini and Athens in Sep, Oct or Nov

Jump to last reply

Most of the articles/blogs/web sites I've found say early October is a good time to go to Greece. We are not locked in to October and we could go in either September or November but it seems October would be good (weather should still be nice and crowds should be less). Do I need to be concerned about limited ferry/flight options in October?

Out of these three months, when would you choose to go? We are thinking of starting out with a few days in Mykonos, then a few days in Santorini and finishing up with a few days in Athens. We are a couple in our sixties looking to relax on the islands and see the ancient sites in Athens. We enjoy exploring new places by walking around and taking plenty of breaks to sample the local wines and foods. A little beach time (maybe one afternoon) and a little tame night life (we will not be going to Paradise Beach - haha) are still on our agenda but neither are high on our list.

As always, thanks in advance for any advice/recommendations you may have.
