Hello! I'm planning a family trip to Greece (after 2 weeks in Turkey, including Ephesus) and want some advice.
We have 3 full days in Athens and would consider travelling by city-bus to Delphi for a day-trip. Then, drive around the Peloponnese to see Nafplio and nearby ruins, Hydra, Gythio, Mani and Messina peninsulas, Olympia and Dimitsana and back to Athens.
Another possiblity is island (Aegina, Hydra?) day-tripping from Athens, tour Dimitsana before Olympia, drive to Delphi, and back to Athens.
Is Delphi worth the time? Also, which island is preferred?
Another possiblity is to see an island on a day trip while we're in Athens, and then drive to Dimitsana before Olympia, and then go to Delphi via Patra (4 hours of driving)
Does anyone have suggestions on which island to go to? I'm still thinking of Hydra. And small pensions to stay in? Is Delphi worth the extra time to get to it?
