Hi everyone! You were all so helpful when I planned our last trip to Italy that I thought I'd come back for help on Greece! :)
*Traveling will be my boyfriend and I (both 40) and my son who will be 15. We will be meeting my Mom and her boyfriend at some point (need your help to figure out which part of our trip).
*We are NOT much into art, partying or difficult hiking and, although we want to see a beach or two, we don't want to plan our whole trip around that. Other than that, we love it all...history, sites, food, scenery etc.
* We have a flexible time table and funds but looking to spend about 17 days including travel from and to the states (Washington state, to be exact) and are more of the budget-friendly type of people. This will be happening sometime between mid-Sept and mid-Oct 2022.
*My Mom and boyfriend land in Athens on Sept. 26th, hop on a cruise Oct 2nd until the 8th and fly home on Oct 10th. We are thinking of flying in before them, meeting up with them when they fly in/on land and then fly home sometime while they are cruising.
I have read numerous posts, articles and suggestions from all over. Since there is SO much to do and so little time, I need help. This is a rough draft outline of itinerary. I would like to fill in the details once I get dates/flights set...
Sept 18th- Fly out of SeaTac
Sept 19th- Arrive in Athens, catch plane or ferry to an island (probably Santorini)
Sept 20th-25th- spend 6 nights in Santorini and other islands (prob Naxos)
Sept 26th-Return to Athens by plane or ferry and grab Mom and bf from airport, walk around and rest, stay in Athens
Sept 27th-Sept 30th- Take land trips (Napflio and around maybe)
Oct 1st- return to Athens
Oct 2nd and 3rd- see all of Athens
Oct 4th- Fly home from Athens
Having a hard time scheduling around my mom's itinerary. I would love suggestions on a better flow. Also, with this itinerary my Mom/bf can see Athens when they get off their cruise on the 8th and 9th, right?
Any help is appreciated so I can book our tickets soon :)
