Planning First Visit to Greece -- How Much Time in Athens?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning our first visit to Greece((2 weeks) for this October. My main question is how much time should we spend in Athens. We were thinking about a week, but other people have told us that's too long to be in Athens. To me it looks like there is plenty to do in Athens. We are very interested in archeological sites and history. Also we're perfectly happy spending time sitting at outdoor cafes etc.
Beyond Athens, we're thinking about renting a car and visting the Peloponnes. That seems like the most reasonable area to visit in the amount of time we have, as we are not inclined to island hop & I assume beach weather will essentially be over by mid October. Any suggestions on "must sees" in the Peloponnese for a couple who are really interesting in archeological/historical sites? Are there any islands that we absolutely should try to see?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
