We are the family with teen boys who like to poke around, look at ruins, eat, museums (but they have a limit), hike. Off the beaten path but of course need to see major sites since this will be the only family trip there. Prefer apartments to fancy hotels. We do like to see things but are not the checklist type: Parthenon CHECK, Acropolis CHECK
We are going in April Probably 12 days and over Easter give or take a day. Do not have tickets yet but will nail that down depending on itinerary.
How to make this all work? Too much? Which places do we need to stay over at and which can be from a base.
We will drive.
Keeping in mind Easter Sunday things will be closed (would it be better to end in Athens and be there for Easter since a lot will be closed in smaller towns? ). Athens 2 Days.
Nafplio and use as a base for a few sites. 2 nights?
A few days Peloponnese. Would like a quiet base to maybe hike and explore around? Maybe Kardamyli or? ______________.
Should we stay overnight in Olympia? ? 1 night?
Maybe a day trip to Spetses or Hydra or Aegina. Although if other things are more interesting, we can skip that
Meteora 1 night
Any advice on how to fit this all in and what order? Hidden Gems I don't know about that we swear we won't be the obnoxious American and ruin it for you!
Advice for any tours that would be worth booking in advance?
