We've now narrowed down our trip in early Dec 07 to Greece. Been reading up on this but really wanted to get some real 'live' feedback from the experts. We want to visit Athens and Santorini in early dec 07 and are not worried about the cold. Dont intend to be swimming but am thinking of Santorini more for the views. Only problem that worries is the short daylight hours. Do you think the short daylight will be a problem to getting a good itinerary in for this trip? It is still worthwhile to go? Lastly, could you suggest another location to pair with athens & santorini (am looking for great sights, some good shopping, good food). Thks everyone for your vote. Look forward to hearing your views.
