Attempting to pitch in on the planning for our last island choice and feeling overwhelmed by the choices!
Quick sketch of what has been planned:
- We'll be there early July with two other adults (4 total).
- Will have done Santorini and Mykonos, with two days in Athens at the end before headed home.
So just need to pick that last island. Time there will include afternoon of our arrival day via Mykonos Ferry, one full day, and another half day (or as long as we can stay before catching ferry back to Athens...with no real pressure to be in Athens at a certain time).
I'm guessing there are some limits to our options so we aren't spending a ton of time traveling between islands (and flights are certainly an option to avoid 4+ hour ferry rides)
As far as what we are looking for: a bit of sightseeing love the quaint village feel; don't really need beach time; but not bad if options exists to watch sit and watch sunset and put feet in the water; we're all food/wine lovers...
Crete is one of our group's top list...but after that, wide open to ideas.
So much to read, so just wondering if there is something unique or off the beaten path that previous travelers recommend we should be considering? At least it will help narrow the research!
Thanks in advance, and happy to answer any further questions.
