Revised Greece Itinerary - adding Crete?

Jump to last reply

Hi all, thanks for helping me think about our visits to Athens, Peloponnese, Kythira. I've revised our itinerary a bit and we're now planning to take a ferry to/ from Kythira. The itinerary looks sort of like this:

June 14-16 - Athens
June 16-17 - Delphi
June 17-20 - Nafplion
June 20-21 - Gythion
June 21-26 - Kythira
(overnight ferry back to Piraeus, leave Athens on June 27)

But I'm also scheming to tack on about five days to the beginning of my trip to spend some time with my sons (ages 10 and 9) on Crete (my husband can't leave the US until June 13). The goal for Crete is to do some hiking and active outdoor adventures, plus see Knossos.

Since we don't have that much time, I'd appreciate your thoughts on the best place(s) to stay and things to see/do. Maybe fly from Athens to Chania, spend 4 days there, then visit Knossos, spend a night in Heraklion, fly back to Athens, meet my husband? Should we rent a car or try to find a good guide to drive us around? Any guide recommendations?

Thanks!
