Need an 8-day itinerary for Greece in November

Jump to last reply

My sister and I are going to Greece mid way of our trip in Turkey in November this year and are thinking of spending 8 days in-country before flying off to Istanbul to end our Turkish trip.

We would like to split the time between the mainland and probably just one island... certainly no more than two and wish to get around by public transit.

Santorini has always seemed absolutely magical but I'm sure there are other islands that are equally splendid.
Meteora seems interesting too with monasteries perching on the hillside.

Our interests include simple hiking in beautiful countryside, city-sightseeing and eating great food at unpretentious restaurants, and we are not into clubbing. We don't mind exploring 2-3 ancient ruins but not too many.

Our initial plan is as follows:

Day 1 - Fly from Izmir to Athens - Fly to Santorini
Day 2 - Santorini
Day 3 - Santorini
Day 4 - Fly from Santorin to Athens (early afternoon)
Day 5 - Athens
Day 6 - Bus/ train to Meteora
Day 7 - Bus/ train to Athens
Day 8 - Fly to Istanbul (late evening)

Any thoughts? The other question is are we spending too little time in Athens - all in about 2 days ?
