1 week in the Cyclades

My fiancé and I are trying to figure out where to spend our honeymoon next June. We are pretty set on Greek Islands but we need suggestions!

We have 7 nights to spend, and we need suggestions for an itinerary.

We would love to spend 3 days in Santorini (romantic sunsets!), then hop on another island (Milos? Naxos? Paros?) for the rest of the trip (3 other nights) before heading to Athens for the last night before our flight back home.

What do you think? Suggestions?

Santorini and Naxos would be a good combination, but go to Santorini for the caldera views, which you can see all day. You can see the sunset anywhere, and one of my favourite views is at the Portara on Naxos: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=na...w=1436&bih=732

It is up to you and your travel style.
Do remember that 3 nights comes down to 2 full days and even if the ferry rides among said islands are quick, mainly you lose at least half a day on practicalities on the day of transfer from one to another. Maybe you would like to pick one island and enjoy more in leisure instead?

With the ferry between Naxos and Athens arriving at 3pm, will we have enough time to let our backpacks at a nearby hotel and run on the Acropole before the sun sets? We don't want to visit Athens in 4 hours but, if we have to be there, why not get a glimpse of the famous Parthenon...

On June quite possibly the archeological sites will close at 8PM (last admission ~7.15) . If so, I guess yes, you may do this.
Keep checking http://odysseus.culture.gr/h/3/eh355.jsp?obj_id=2384 closer to your dates.
