My husband and I are planning a trip to Greece in the second half of September. We are both interested in history and would also like to do some hiking. My husband is also very into photography and I enjoy trying out restaurants and visiting wineries when we travel. We know we want to spend a few days in Athens and see Meteora and Nafplio.
How many days does it make sense to spend in Athens? I had originally thought 4 or 5 but I'm not sure that there is enough to do there to sustain that many days.
I was thinking we might use Nafplio as a base for a couple of days and then go on day trips to the vineyards in Nemea and/or Mycenae. Does that make sense?
Is Delphi a day trip or should we plan to spend more time there?
Will we be missing out if we stick to the mainland? We know we're planning to skip Mykonos, Santorini, and Naxos. I am a little wary of the travel time to the islands.
How much is practical to do in two weeks? I don't want to rush from place to place but it's hard for me to tell how much time is reasonable to budget.
Thanks! I know that is a lot of questions.
