Corfu town is definitely worth it, loads of tiny back roads crammed with shops, interesting churches to see and they have an amazing fortress that you can walk all around which has it’s own church, light house and battlements. On the other side of Corfu Island are some amazing quiet beaches with stunning views. I forget what the place was called now but there is a monetary on a hill which is gorgeous, and the beach at the bottom is to die for

I would really recommend visiting Parga, which a beautiful town with lots of character. It’s also a short boat away from the lovely island of Paxos. Google them – they’re both really stunning. I would go back every year if I could!

If you can, try to swing over to Crete as well, I really loved Chania and Heraklion.

  • Wedding: September 2015

I’ve been to Cofru, Zante and Crete and while I loved them all, Crete was my favourite. That may have something to do with the fact my fiance proposed to me there, but also it was paradise.

We stayed in a resort called Daois Cove, which I highly recommend. I would go back in a heartbeat if we werent saving for the wedding. 


Have fun!

  • Wedding: May 2014

We just got back from Greece. Mykonos was wonderful. It has the stigma of being a “party” island but we found it to be simply lovely (we did not spend much time partying.. actually we didn’t spend any time partying). We stayed at the Rocabella and I can not recommend it enough! The staff was amazing and so attentive. http://www.rocabella-hotel-mykonos.com/

I actually wasn’t a huge fan of Santorini. I wish we had spent more days in Mykonos and fewer in Santorini.

KatiePi:  Another vote for Crete. It’s such a beautiful island. 

I also really, really enjoyed the city of Rhodes on Rhodes. I am a sucker for medival architecture and a medival feel and those city wall, fortifications and the Grand Master’s Palace http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palace_of_the_Grand_Master_of_the_Knights_of_Rhodes etc are breathtaking. The harbor is also interesting. <br />Lindos on Rhodes is also a popular place, but for me it was way too crowded. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lindos (of course the city of Rhodes is crowded as well – but it’s a lot bigger, so I felt less stuck in the crowd)

Another really beautiful place is Symi island. The colors of the houses make for a beautiful picture. The water is crystal clear (and the prices for sunscreen are the most expensive ones I’ve ever seen 😉 ) We went there by boat from Rhodes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symi

KatiePi:  I think there was way too much hype about Santorini being “so romantic” and how it was billed as such a great place for a honeymoon. It was pretty, I’ll give it that. However, we were there at the end of May/beginning of June and it was COLD. Like during the day we were lucky for an air temp of 70 (before wind). At night it would drop into the 50s and low 60s and was SOOOO windy. It was hard to go do anything because I just didn’t want to spend any time outside (we packed for what we assumed was going to be nice, warm weather). The wineries on Santorini were nice. I just feel like the 4 days we spent there were about 2 days too many.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
