My wife and I have booked flights to Greece giving us 23 days there, mid-September to early October (2023). We are planning 3 nights in Athens at the end of the trip; 7-10 nights in Crete at the start, and 2-3 nights in Santorini.
That means we have 7 or 8 days remaining. Would you recommend one island (e.g. Paros) for this time, or splitting it between 2 islands? We want to avoid spending too long in transit between destinations. I have read with great interest the posts about Sifnos, Tinos and Andros, among others. Renting a car for sure in Crete, otherwise we would prefer not to. We are early 60-ish, interested in gentle exploring but also relaxing travel.
Thanks in advance!
