A long holiday in Greece

I am planing a long holiday in Greece like for 7 to 8 days. I would like to cover Athens (Main spots and highlights only), Mykonos and Santorini. Please suggest how many days should I give to each destination and in which order.


HI @Gaurav and welcome to our forum,

I believe the best itinerary for 7 nights is:

Athens 2 nights
Santorini 3 nights
Mykonos 2 night

It also depends on when are you visiting because if it’s in the winter then I wouldn’t stay more than 1 night in Mykonos as the island is only worth a visit for its beaches but in the winter you won’t be able to visit them or swim in the sea because of the cold weather.

Hi Pavlos,

Thanks for your reply. Well, I shall be visiting greece in the 2nd or the 3rd week of May 2020 and I plan to visit Athens for a day or two then fly to Mykonos the next morning and spend 3 nights and then take a ferry to Santorini and spend 4 nights (3 nights Fira and last night at Oia).

Does this sound good to you?


A post was split to a new topic: Greece Winter Trip

That sounds absolutely perfect!
Though the 10000% perfect scenario should be to have more days in Greece! :slight_smile:
