I am posting my revised supposed partial itinery in a new thread instead of at the end of my other thread. Here I am not listing every museum or site. But I do have a more detailed itinerary written I can post. I want to first see if this is makes logistical or rational sense. I am not going to rent a car.
Last Saturday of September: airplane from Detroit to Santorini (have not bought tickets yet. Don’t know what my flight plan will be. Don’t know whether I will end with a flight to Santorini, or to Heraklion and take a boat to Santorini, or some other arrangement. Would be happy to take small airplanes if the prices and times of day are good)
Sunday: Santorini. Sleep on Santoirni.
Monday: Santorini. “ “ “
Tuesday: Santorini. “
Wednesday: airplane and bus to Delphi. Sleep in Delphi. Don’t know whether I will have time to see anything the day I arrive.
Thursday: Outdoor site; museum. Sleep in Delphi again.
Friday: Bus to Nafplio. Sleep in Nafplio.
Saturday: walking tour; possibly archaeologu museum. Sleep in Nafplio.
Sunday: Day trip to Mycenae. Sleep in Nafplio.
Monday: Buses to Athens. If possible, see Acrocorinth and/or the canal on the way.
Tuesday: Athens. Walking tour. Acropolis museum?
Wed: National archaeology museum. Ancient Agora if haven’t seen yet.
Thu: Jewish museum. Benaki Greek museum? Roman forum if haven’t seen yet?
Fri: Museum of city of Athens? Museum of Greek popular instruments. Panthenaic stadium?
Sat: Airplane back to Detroit.
Are there other ways to fit in the sites outside Athens that would make more sense?
I would not eat in archaeology sites, but would I be able to smuggle food in so I can eat just before entering or just after leaving? Or do the sites have coat rooms or lockers? I am on a radically restrictive diet consisting of mainly fruit but I can’t or won’t not carry around food or go too many hours without eating just because I worry that restaurant food is unhealthy.
I am going to greece just to take a trip and because I vaguely think ancient Greek cultures were so influencial and grandiose. I only have minimal knowledge about ancient Greece but I plan to do some background reading between this week and before my trip.
My story is the same as before. I am a man traveling alone. My budget is ~$2,900-$3,100 US dollars, or less. This amount is supposed to cover airplane tickets, loging places, food, sites, transportion, and so on. Some of you have more experience than me in traveling; and my method of traveling might seem weirdly different from you and I don’t think I would have a better time if I stayed in 4 or 5 star hotels and ate in restaurants every day.
