"Next destination in Greece?"

Athens???

Unless Athens is included in some of the other locations you write about.

I have been to Athens a few times but a long ago. I had a nice time there. But I like history.

I always included Athens in all my trips to Greece.
Even in my next trip ,i will plan to keep the 3 last days to stay in Athens which is a good mixed of history, cycladic architecture near plaka ,meusems , beaches in a short distance , concerts, music ,good food, shopping and many other events ans places which will occupy anyone for several days, in addition to the daily trip s to Delphi, Epidavros, Saronic islands such Hydra and Poros...
Now i hisitated between Messinia west coast of peloponnese and the central mainland to meteora kastoria ,zagoria, parga , the pelion and sporades ,or some cycladic islands like syros, tinos, amorgos and astypalea?

I would suggest the small island of Milos where the Venus came from. Although it has some big quarries you don't really notice them. Relatively crowd free.

Athens and Santorini . :)
Those two were my main places to visit when I went to Greece.

Northern Greece with Meteora is a wonderful choice and a safe one, especially now that there is a surge of Covid-19 cases in the Cyclades.Stay away from cosmopolitan islands,leave them for next time.This year you may regret it. Kastoria,Florina, Thessaloniki,Katerini up in Northern Greece offer crystal clear sea, great service and more safety.Good luck!
