We are 2 couples and 2 singles on an extended 60th birthday celebration for three of us. In early June we're looking at 10 days in Greece as part of a longer trip that includes a couple weeks in Spain and Portugal just prior to Greece.
Our plan is to fly in late to Athens (flight already booked), cab over to a hotel near the ferry port Piraeus (hotel recommendations?) and head out early the next morning to our first island for 4 days; either Ios or Mykonos. Looking for a relaxing paced restaurant, pub, low key attraction kind of place. Would like to hear any experiences/recommendations people have had along those lines on those islands.
After that we will ferry to Santorini for 4 days where we have already booked a house looking over the caldera in Fira. I'm curious about any "not to be missed" spots on Santorini people may recommend.
Then it's back to Athens by ferry. Based on other posts we are planning on booking the ferries once we arrive in Greece. Is that really a good idea? Also, can we expect the ferries to be on time, as we have a fairly close air connection outbound from Athens.
