I am traveling with my daughter (15) to Greece beginning of April, it is our first time in Greece. We have about a week, but can make a bit longer if needed. I love museums and architecture, but my daughter is not a fan. She will need time to relax by water, take walks in the hills, anything with animals (suggestions welcome). I like finding farmers markets, cooking(place to stay with a kitchen), taking things slow. I am thinking of the following itinerary, please share suggestions:
Arrive in Athens, rent car and go directly to Nafplio (3 nights). Day trip to Epidavros and possibly Mycenae. Day exploring town of Nafpilo and beach. Day in Epidavros. If possible, day on boat tour of coast or to visit an island (is this possible)?
Return car to Athens airport and fly to Santorini (2 nights). Rent a car and explore island.
Fly back to Athens and have 2 nights before flying home.
I do not like going back to the airport from Nafplio. Is there another island we can go to from Nafplio that would not require a flight? Or, perhaps we should skip the island and go somewhere that we can drive from Nafplio?<<
Must haves: time in Athens, time visiting architecture sights, time by water (although it will probably be too cold to swim).
