Rhodes - is it worth the extra travel time?

Jump to last reply

Hi. We are a family of five (the kids are 14, 17 and 19) and hope to be spending 2 weeks in Greece this June. We are traveling from NY and are thinking of flying to Rhodes (via Athens) for 3 nights, then flying to Santorini for 3 nights, and then taking a ferry to Athens and staying on the mainland for 7 nights before flying back to JFK. Is this too much time on the mainland? Should we add another island instead? I must admit that I do not like to fly, so I would prefer to add an island that is reachable by ferry. Also, we are not really sun worshippers, so islands with other things to do would be more appealing to us. Lastly, I was even thinking of cutting out Rhodes and just flying to Athens, taking the ferry to Santorini and then finding other places to visit on the mainland so I could do away with the flights to/from Rhodes, but from what I can read online it seems that Rhodes may be worth the extra traveling. Is this true, even for someone like me that hates to fly?
Thanks so much for any advice!
