With only 8 days, and because you're going in March when the weather is still cold and possibly wet, I suggest you stick to Crete, the southernmost Greek Island. You can get there from Athens by ferry or you can fly. There's much to see and do, and renting a car there will not be expensive and will give you the most flexibility and save you the most time when it comes to getting around the island.

I see that you are new here - - how did I know that? click on your own name (this is one of the numerous useful tips that Fodors fails to tell you when they send you that first e-mail confirming your registration) - - we'll assume that you have also did not know to read the "HELP" (little tiny red letters in the upper lefthand corner) - - another oversight that Fodors fails to recommend to you to do.

Anyhow, you owe it to yourself to take a look there: - - especially - - which I have listed below, in excerpt form, for you (my own emphasis added):


Finally, create a title - make sure it is concise and clearly describes your message (and destination, if applicable) -- and write your message in the space provided


Thus, when you re-post - - and you really should do that - - be sure and mention Greece in your message header.

Best wishes,

TTT Any other help on this subject? How long a ferry ride is it to Crete and what is of interest there? Weather in mid-March?

Centex: It is usually fine to tack a new question to an existing thread. However - the thread you chose has a truly useless title. You will be much, much better off to start a new thread asking what you want to know.
