Our family of four is planning a trip to Greece to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and our daughter's HS graduation, our son is 15. We are looking for some history, light hiking/walking (trying not to pack hiking boots but will if it enhances the experience), small village and local life and beach time. Although I know that some of this is hard to avoid, we are more interested in authentic experiences than tourist traps.
Here is what we know
We will be arriving in mid June from Chicago.
We will have 14 days total (so really 12?)
We will include Athens and Naxos
We don't feel the need to run from one thing to the next
Here is what we are wondering
Should we choose a third location?
Do you have suggestions for that location? Crete or Santorini?
I have been reading the forums about trips similar to ours and am looking forward to hearing your feedback. Thank you for your time!
