Finally, we are getting to Greece (2020 and 2021 cancelled)!
We are flying into Athens, staying May 8-11.
Then driving the Peloponnese 12-19 (nights of 12, 13, 14 Nafplio, 15th Monemvasia, 16th Porto Kayio, 17th Stoupa, 18th Olympia).
Flying to Santorini 19 -22.
Then cruising some islands and into Venice 22-29.
My question is........
The 18th (Thursday) we will wake in Stoupa.
Drive to Olympia seeing sites on the way and the ruins upon arrival.
Stay the night.
Then drive 3.5hrs Friday to ATH (drop car) for a later evening flight to Santorini.
Wake in Stoupa (Thursday the 18th), skipping Olympia and drive to ATH (3.5hr) seeing (suggestions) along the way.
Drop car and stay the night at ATH hotel and early Friday flight to Santorini.
This way having a 3rd full (Friday) day in Santorini (and Sa/Su), as Monday early we head to ATH port for cruise.
I'm leaning on option two but wonder if missing Olympia (for the extra day in Santorini) is a mistake.
I welcome and thank you for any input.
