Travel Forums Europe Greece in 7 days

I am planning to travel to Greece from Apr 2 - Apr 8. What can I cram in to see in this time? I read that the weather is still a little chilly. My plan was to spend 5 days in Athens (also travel to places within one day driving distance from Athens) and visit Santorini for 2 days. I am more interested to see history. Any help in finalizing my trip with places that I should defenitely see will be helpful.

I only booked my flight and hotel in Athens and was planning to book the daily trips and Santorini after I reach Athens. Is this the best idea?

2 or 3 days in Athens will show you a lot.
Then go to Delphi for the day but remember the site closes at 3pm or it did.

Epidavros is another amazing site which is south of Corinth also worth a visit and Mycenae but these need early sites.

Out of them all Delphi is the best I think

I have to agree that the ancient delphi is one of the best places to see! I stayed in a lovely little hotel on the rockface when i was there. The view was amazing from our room and i just wish i could remember the name to tell you. Look out for the hotel with the roof garden a short walk from the delphi. I lived in Athens for a while and would recommend the new metro system as its packed with old finds! Check out snip
