I have a rough itinerary that I need to fill in with places to visit and stay and would love your input. Here is what our plan looks like so far...
Sept. 18th-19th, My 15 year old son and I fly from Washington state to Athens and straight on to Santorini
Sept 20 Santorini?
Sept 21 Santorini?

Sept 23 Naxos
Sept 24 Naxos
Sept 25 Fly from Naxos to Athens, meet up with one member of our party, stay at the Avra Hotel
Sept 26 Meet up with the last two of our party at 8am, grab our rental car (booked) and head towards Napflio
Sept 27 Napflio and surrounding areas
Sept 28 Napflio and surrounding areas
Sept 29 Napflio and surrounding areas
Sept 30 Head back to Athens and return rental car by 11am
Oct 1 Athens
Oct 2 Two of our members leave, 3 of us left do Athens
Oct 3 Athens
Oct 4 Three of us fly home early morning
The first week is just my son and I. I am unable to drive due to strokes but would like to take a couple of must see tours. We would like to stay somewhere within walking distance of as much as possible (food, shops, sightseeing and beach if possible). Sounds like Firastefani would be good in Santorini and Naxos Town or St George Beach might be good for Naxos?
The next week is with 5 of us and we will have a car. We are mainly into seeing the sights and at least one beach. They are much into food and excited to eat some good food. None of us can do difficult climbing or hiking but we are all able to do easier paths.
Last few days is Athens which seems like Plaka would be ideal to stay as it is within walking distance to lots of stuff.
I can definitely plan the details in between but want to make sure we are staying in the best areas to then explore :)
