Hello. We are just starting to talk about where to spend Christmas, New Years, and one teen-aged child's birthday and all want to travel to Greece. We would fly into Athens and spend some time there but want to visit a couple of islands too (or some other option we haven't considered). On the table are both Crete and Rhodes ...
We would like to structure the trip to include meaningful/interesting/local celebrations of each of those holidays and any other festive days at that time of the year. Please share any information you have about celebrating Christmas and New Years anywhere in Greece.
Also, our priorities are historical sites/museums, food and fishing. We have a ten-year-old obsessed with fishing everywhere we go. :)
The five children - ages 6 - 18 - are all hardy, experienced travelers who love to engage with locals and do everything from museums to backpacking.
Thank you for your help.
