Fantastic 50th in Greece?
June 19, 2014 12:50 PM Subscribe
I turn 50 in September and am taking the trip to Greece that I've wanted to take since I was about 10. The problem is, there's so much to see and so much I want to do.... And I'd also love to get recommendations for a fantastic and romantic dinner in Athens on the actual birthday night.

So we have just over three weeks. We are flying into Athens and staying a couple/three days there. That leaves the rest of our time. The problem is there is probably way too much I want to do since this is a trip I've wanted to take for forever. I'm tentatively thinking Athens, Delphi, the Peloponnese including Mycenae and perhaps somewhere rural for a couple nights, Crete, then back thru a couple islands (Santorini, Naxos? Milos?). Is that doable in three weeks or way too much? Are there must sees that I've left out? (Interested in antiquities and beaches and landscapes and eating...) Will we need advance bookings everywhere in September or will we be able to be a bit flexible? Also we will be in Athens for the actual birthday night and I'd love to hear recommendations for a romantic dinner there.
