Need help with short itinerary for Greece

Jump to last reply

My adult daughter and I have decided to spend a week in Greece and a couple of days in Istanbul in May. We'll be coming from New York City. I know it's a short time frame to see a lot, but it's what we have available. We are traveling from New York City.
We are trying to figure out how to make the most of our admittedly limited time.
1. Would it be better to start in Istanbul and end in Athens or the other way around?
2. What to see in Greece. Athens of course, but how much time there? Then Santorini and/or Crete? And best ideas for transportation between these places and how best ot see the without a car?
Thanks to all in advance for your help! We have gotten wonderful advice here for past trips!
