I can’t wait to hear about your trip.  That’s where we are planning on going as well, just the greece part, not England.  With maybe a side trip to Italy 🙂

Your trip sounds lovely… I loved the greek islands but athens itself was a big let down for me.. hope you have a better experience! and England is awesome!

@Baileyh:

YAY for European honeymoons! Your trip sounds divine!

We were in Athens for about 1.5 and for us it was more than enough! We hit the major sights that we wanted to see.

The villa in Oia looks fantastic!

Exciting!  We’re also planning to go to Greece – to Athens, Santorini, and Crete. 

I’ve been to Athens before and while people are right that it’s kind of underwhelming as a destination (it reminds me a lot of LA – hot, crowded, and sprawling), there are some amazing things there.  It’s definitely worth a day or two in Athens to see the Parthenon.

@Baileyh: I am so excited for you! We are also going to Santorini and Mykonos (and then heading over to Italy) for our honeymoon in October.

I think your villa in Santorini looks amazing!! Every place I’ve looked at is much much more than that (including the place we’ve booked), so I think you got a great deal! When are you taking your honeymoon?

@Baileyh: So glad you will be coming to my beautiful country!

I think you have to know where to go in Athens and youll see how great a city it is- there are a few bad neighborhoods in the central area that you can avoid. Most tourists understandably do not know where the nicest parts of the city are.

In Athens, go to Thissio, walk on the cobblestone streets and go to Plaka for dinner. Those are two gorgeous areas in the city. Also, you can go to the rooftop of the Hilton or Grande Bretagne to their rooftop bars at night that are luxe and have an amazing night view of the city.

The new Acropolis museum is fantastic by the way. It would be a shame to see the little time in Athens as time just to pass quickly…

Enjoy! Santorini is one of my favorite islands!!

So excited to read all of this – we are going to Greece for our honeymoon as well. Staying 10 days in Athens – Santorini – Crete – back to Athens.  We have 4 days total in Athens alone, and even though pp mentioned underwhelming experiences there, we plan to make the most of it.  That is why we are island hopping too, so we can see the more romantic/beach sides in addition to the historical landmarks.  I cannot wait!

Sounds fabulous!  We’re doing something similar.  Flying to Rome then Athens, Santorini and Mykonos.  We’re most likely staying at the Mykonos Grand.  My bestie stayed there last year for her honeymoon and said it’s the most amazing resort she has been to anywhere.

Are you sold on Mykonos?  Some of the smaller islands have rooms for that price at really nice hotels.  We’re going to Santorini and Paros, and found an amazing deal in Paros for only 90 euros.
