Advice for first time trip to Greece

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning our first trip to Greece in mid to late May of 2018 traveling from the US. We have two weeks total travel time and would like to visit three islands. Our main interests are the local culture and food/wine, sightseeing and secluded beaches (possibly naturalist friendly). Not interested in the loud/party atmosphere, more laid back approach perhaps to enjoy the local history/culture scene at nighttime as well as during the day. A few places that may appeal to us are Santorini, Mykonos (have heard it could get touristy however, in mid-May we should be ok??), Milos, Naxos and Paros (which includes Antiparos). If you have any other suggestions on islands that would be better, I would love to hear more. Our main goal is to enjoy the beauty of the islands and relaxation however, we do seek some nightlife choices as well. Would love to hear some thoughts on what islands would fit the bill and possibly lodging on them. We will mostly be traveling by ferry between the islands and then flying home from Athens but we are not particularly interested in seeing too much of Athens. Looking forward to your input.
