I think this will greatly vary based on where you want to go in Greece (what island(s))and how much you want to travel between places. I went to a travel agent and priced out a 2 week trip to the island of Lesbos (not a majorly touristy island) with a nice, non-chain hotel inclusive of breakfast with flights from Frankfurt airport it came to about 2,000 EUR for 2 people.

We ended up mot taking the trip because we found really cheap flights to Tokyo instead but Greece is still on my wish list so I’m interested to see what others have to contribute.

It depends on where you are starting from.  When I lived in Europe, I went to a Greek Island (Samos) for a week by myself.  The trip, i.e. flight & hotel+breakfast and dinner, cost me about 700 Euros in September, which is almost out of season.  I was in school back then and Greece was one of the less expensive vacation options, so I went there.

If you are coming from the US, it will of course be more expensive with the transatlantic flight.

They do have all-exclusive packages.  But according to my travel agent back then, those are not very common in Greece.  If you want all-exclusive, it might limit your choice of hotels.

Quite honestly, there are so many cute little bars and restaurants along the beach promenades, and the food is just out of this world, that you might regret being tied to your hotel for food and drinks.  The prices were very reasonable as well.  For lunch, I usually just went to the local supermarket and got some bread, cheese and tomatoes, and made a sandwich. They had the best, most flavorful tomatoes I ever ate!

I wanna go back! LOL!

I just saw that you are getting married in October.  When I went in September, I made friends with some of the locals who were celebrating the end of summer/season.  According to them, places shut down for the winter in October/November, and those who work in the tourist industry often go to work in other countries that are not so seasonal.

Yes, September is pretty much when the season ends.  At least in the village that I stayed in, they had parties to celebrate the end of summer and tourist season. I went to one of those with a bartender I met.  He later went to Amsterdam to bartend there for the winter, while the owners of the bar he worked at spent their winter in Australia like they do every year.

Early September was a perfect time to go there, though.  It was still warm enough, 80s F/upper 20s C, but not as hot as in the middle of summer, and the water temperature was comfortable and refreshing.

@AprilJo2011: Where did you go in Greece? I’ll be there for the first part of my honeymoon (Oct 10-16), and now I’m starting to worry a little bit! However, if it’s just partially closed down, I’m sure we’ll still enjoy it.
