Do they plan to have a car if necessary?

This area does not come up very often on this forum, but I will mention it once again. Why not Lefkas and surrounding area?

Lefkas is an island with very beautiful beaches, nice scenery, tons of boat trips to surrounding islets and islands, various inland villages to explore, a few hiking opportunities and so on... and the ultimate advantage of been connected to mainland only on a small bridge. So no ferries involved and you have tons of options for more beaches and scenery and a vast array of places for sight seen and similar say in half and hour or say 2 hours driving ratio. Ancient Nikopolis, Acheron Springs, Ioannina are only a few among the sightseen options while this part of west mainland Greece offers many nice coves and beaches too.

Assuming Athens is the entry/departure spot in Greece, if driving there and back one could always allow one overnight in Delphi or Galaxidi or NAfpaktos or Meteora and so on to break the journey or they could always fly.

OF course that's just an idea out of many. Let us know what they decide and best wishes for a great honeymoon and prosperous marriage : )
