I'm in the midst of planning a Greece Trip/Itinerary.

Right now, we expect to fly into Athens and flying directly out to Santorini (or one of the islands that we are interested in) then fly back into Athens, leaving Athens in the tail end of the trip.

So right now the islands that we have our heart set on are the following:

  • Santorini
  • Milos
  • Paros
  • Naxos

Based on the following, can someone suggest how many days in each? We do have our flight currently booked for approximately July 8th to the 22nd (approximately 13 full days?) I took off a day in the beginning and the end of trip for travel flight back home.

I can change the amount of days if required but trying to understand realistically how many days I should try to stay on each island, including a day or two in Athens?

Thanks in advance!
