Tales from Greece when antiquities are not your thing

There seem to be a few fairly common Greece questions posted as I prepped my trip. I was hoping to post trip reports here but I’m already spending enough writing time on my blog and so I’ll just make this short. If you want to hear about the 1) March 2019 weather 2) for a group of two adults who opted to book a private 5 day tour of the Peloponnese and 3)booked business class ferry tickets on the Blue Star Delos to Naxos and then to Santorini and 4)opted to fly back from Santorini then PM me or check my Bio for a link to my blog. Also covered is traveling Greece with food allergies and there’s a focus on sites that outside the typical archeological-heavy route.

Valerie, as always I enjoyed reading your blog filled with humor. Greece was fairly recent for us so it was fun to relive similar sites. We so enjoyed Jewish Athen's on a private tour. I recognized the display in the Jewish Museum. We will never forget the tragic history. Thank you for sharing your journey and heartfelt story about your loss.

85% of all Jewish people in Greece were killed in the war, many of them in Auschwitz.

I can't believe I didn't know this.

Thanks for sharing your interesting blog.

We loved Napflion. It is a weekend get away for Athenians who sail therein their yachts.
I LOVE antiquities but each to her/his own! I remember you went to Egypt.Are you going to these places for your husband's interest in them?
I've eager to hear about Naxos. Been to Santorini twice, never again!

The only reason I returned to Santorini after saying I never would, was because Akrotiri had reopened after they had the fatalities from the roof crashing down in 2005. I hope Ron got there.
