Planning Greece . . .

Jump to last reply

So, we spontaneously booked a trip to Greece. Coming off of a travel high from our recent trip to Morocco, we panicked when we realized that we had no future travel plans so we just couldn’t resist. To date, we have avoided Greece for numerous reasons but it is finally time for a cursory visit.

So, please tell me if I have booked a sensible trip or if changes should occur. Note: We are older & not particularly fond of beaches or strenuous hikes etc (no gorge walks for us). We always like a private balcony or veranda at our hotel.

-- Arrive Athens airport
Athens – 2 nights – Hilton with balcony (free) – see the usual greatest hits
-- Fly to Chania, Crete
Chania - 3 nights – Alcanea Hotel – room with veranda overlooking port - explore town, shop, eat
-- Rent a car & drive southeast to southern Heraklion province
Kamilari - 3 nights – Niriida Guest House (inland near Phaistos) – explore the area with car – ancient sites & villages
-- Drive to Heraklion – visiting Knossos on the drive in
Heraklion – drop car & spend one night @ port (Lato, Megaron or Marin Dream are potentials) – see museum if time permits
-- Ferry to Santorini
Artemis Villas (Imerovigli ) – 4 nights – stare at the crater, eat, rent car & visit sites on island, stare at the crater some more, drink wine on the veranda of the suite that we are paying dearly for . . .
-- Fly to Athens
Athens – 2 nights in the Plaka area – shop & wrap up of any sites
-- Depart Athens airport

Overall, I think it will be nice slowish relaxing travel. Any suggestions? Criticisms?

Ian
