We had a wonderful honeymoon in Greece that consisted of 2 nights in Athens, 3 nights in Mykonos, 2 nights in Naxos, and 3 nights in Santorini. Our travel agent Hilary was extremely accommodating and responsive, and she provided her useful advice and input throughout the planning process and leading up to our departure. Particularly for going to a country that we were unfamiliar with, it was very helpful to have that input, as well as to have all of the minor details (transfers, etc.) taken care of. All in all, it was an excellent experience.
In Athens, we did as much historical stuff as we could. The Acropolis, Ancient Agora and Acropolis Museum were all very cool to see. We also caught a sunset from Mount Lycabettus and ate some wonderful food.
Mykonos, while quite crowded and hectic, was beautiful. We did more relaxing on the beaches here than other places, but we enjoyed a couple sunsets in little venice, walked from our hotel (Petasos Beach) along the coast to Paradise Beach and explored the town's tiny streets. We also spent several hours on Delos one day, which we really enjoyed.
We loved Naxos as well. It was a great changeup from Mykonos (a bit slower paced, which I preferred), and although we only had a short time there, we were able to do quite a bit. On the one full day we had, we rented a car and explored the island. We went to Agios Prokopios, Plaka, into the Tragea Valley to Halki, Filoti, Apiranthos, and then back by way of the ancient quarries.
Really enjoyed the sailing in Santorini. It was a great way to see the island. We were able to relax, eat some excellent food, swim, and see some things that we definitely would not have otherwise been able to. The crew was also very friendly and helpful.
Did the hike from Imerovigli to Oia. It was a pretty good distance, but it was also an excellent way to see the island, and Oia is a beautiful city.
Hard to say we would really want to do anything differently. It would have been nice to have a bit more time in each location, but we knew that that would be the case going in, and we made the most of the time we did have. We also would like to have visited several more islands, but again, that was not possible within the constraints of this particular trip.
