7 days in Greece

Jump to last reply

Hi all! My boyfriend and I are hoping to spend 7 days in Greece after 10 very busy days traveling around nonstop in Israel in July. A priority is relaxing on beautiful beaches, and I want to make sure we don't over-schedule ourselves trying to see too much. But at the same time, we've never been to Greece and want to make the most of the trip! We care about views/beaches, fun towns, shopping, and food.

Thinking about flying into Athens and heading directly to Santorini for 3 nights. Then perhaps 2 night in Naxos, and ending with 2 nights in Athens to allow for airport issues. Does that sound manageable or a bit rushed? Should we stick with just Santorini (5 nights) and Athens (2 nights) and skip the additional island? I thought Naxos over Mykonos to avoid major tourism, save money, and we don't care so much about "night life." Another question - is Hydra an easier third spot?

Thanks for input!! I know there's a lot of info out there on itineraries but not much on 7-day trips. (We're also considering Turkey but that seems even harder to manage in a week)
