We're a senior couple from New England (yes it snowed today 3/28) and are contemplating a winter trip to various locales in Greece next winter. We like scenery, museums, historic places and old towns with charm. We avoid gifts shops, big crowds, long lines, most night life, unless it's a local concert or festival. Not so much into spending a lot of time on the beach - would rather walk til we drop. We're thinking of spending 1-2 weeks in several places, staying in efficiencies, local boutique hotels. airbnb's or the like.
We'd like your thoughts on what islands would be best in the winter for a week or more of sightseeing. Will major museums be closed all over Greece? Other places we'd like to see - all of the Peloponnese, Athens, Delphi. We're just concerned that we'd be missing too many attractions in winter due to closings. We love Rick's Tours but also travel on our own.
