My fiance and I are going to Greece for our honeymoon and we wanted some advice on our preliminary itinerary. We are in our mid 30's and are visiting Greece in June. We'd like to focus on the islands and are planning to spend only 1 day in Athens, followed by 3 nights in Mykonos, 3 nights in Santorini, and 7 nights in Crete. We would love your thoughts on this itinerary... is this the right amount of time in each location? Are we missing out on any key sights/things to do in these locations? Thanks!
