Torn: Crete or Peloponnesian peninsula

Jump to last reply

Dear fellow Fodorites,

I'm in the early stages of planning my Next Big Trip. I had hoped to travel this past year, but alas,given recent job/career changes, we never did. But I'm hoping to travel sometime next Spring/early summer.

I have my heart on Santorini, but I'm torn between making the trip Peloponnese + Santorini, or Crete + Santorini (and a few days in Athens).

Which one? I think I lean toward the Peloponnese, as the idea of off-the-beaten track really appeals, but Crete also seems to be have much to offer.

I love experiencing the flavor of a region (culture - ie, interacting with locals in small towns, via small cafes, B&Bs, markets; intimate museums and sites); beauty (lovely vistas & dramatic topography); ruins (old, older, oldest).

Anyone have any recommendations one way or another?

Many, many thanks,
Paule
