I am having a hard time deciding between these 2 areas, We will be spending a week in Crete before this part of our trip so beaches aren't an absolute must.
One itinerary I am thinking of is driving from Athens to Delphi. Spending a few hours in Delphi then driving towards Thessalonki and staying outside of the city as a home base to explore Thessaloniki and doing a day trip to Meteora. We would love to explore the small towns and villages in the area.
The second option is driving from Athens to Cherofto and exploring this area. We love exploring towns, markets and local food.
Since this will be our first trip to Greece, we are open to anything, with 4 to 5 days before we spend 2 days in Athens. Thanks so much.
