Am planning a trip to Greece for a May/June 2024 timeframe and plan to largely follow Rick’s recommended itinerary as far as the mainland. Regarding islands we want to include Santorini but also Crete as we are hikers and would like to attempt the Samaritan Gorge. In case you don’t know, Rick’s mainland loop starts in Athens then we drive to Delphi, Olympia, down to Kardamyli, the Mani Peninsula, Monemvasia, up to Nafplio and back to Athens. I know from Rick we could ferry (or possibly fly) to Santorini once we arrive back to Athens. My question regards when and how to best fit in Crete. Would you recommend trying to ferry there from a drive from Neapolis and back again then continuing on the recommended loop then visit Santorini or do you think we should do the complete loop, fly to Crete from Athens then ferry over to Santorini from Crete and then return to Athens from Santorini? Or is there another way I’m unaware of that you would suggest? Any help you can give would be appreciated. Thank you.
