Trip itinerary: Greece & Istanbul

Jump to last reply

Hi all! Thank you for feedback for my previous posts which finally led me to this itinerary. Now I just need to get some ideas on charming local places such as shops, restaurants, cafes, experiences for each of the locations aside from the major touristy things which we plan on since this is our first trip to these locations. Background info: mid-30s, active, love history, museums (my husband loves more than me), architecture, dining hot spots, wine, souvenir shopping, some out-doorsy things. Here is what we have planned:

Sept 9: arrive in Athens in morning
Sept10: Athens 3 hour acropolis and city walking tour in morning
Sept 11: drive to Kastraki and stay night
Sept 12: see monestaries missed from day before, then drive to Delphi
Sept13: see Delphi, then drive to Athens and stay night
Sept 14: wander around Athens until about 21:00 then night ferry to Chania
Sept: 15-18 Chania
Sept 18: Heraklion and stay night so can catch morning ferry to Santorini (not morning people so do not want to wake up too early to take a bus to Heraklion from Chania)
Sept 19-22: Santorini, photo tour the day we get there
Sept 22-28: Istanbul by plane from Santorini via Athens (of course), staying in Sultanhamet for 2 nights & in Galata area for 4 nights. We plan on doing some historical walking tours and Bosphorus cruise.
