I am working on planning a yacht trip through Greece. I live it because I am in total control of the itinerary and what goes on, unlike booking a cruise or something. There's enough of us in the group to make this a super affordable trip.

I am developing am itinerary - thought I'd run it by you:

  1. Athens to Mykonos: Begin in the historic port of Athens and make your way to the cosmopolitan island of Mykonos. Dock at Agios Ioannis beach and take a stroll through Little Venice.
  2. Mykonos to Naxos: Naxos awaits, with its marble gateway to nowhere and beautiful beaches. Try the local kitron liqueur for a true taste of the island.
  3. Santorini: Sail to the iconic island of Santorini, where the sunset from Oia is second to none. Enjoy a swim in the hot springs of Palea Kameni and taste some of the best wines in Greece.
  4. Ios to Folegandros: Keep the vibes high in Ios known for its lively atmosphere, then find tranquility in Folegandros, where the untouched Mediterranean prevails.
  5. Return to Athens: Wrap up your adventure with a pitstop in Syros, the capital of the Cyclades. Its charm lies in its austere yet handsome neoclassical buildings and the stunning Aegean views.

What do you think? Anything to add or subtract? I have about 10 days.

I am curious about this too. For those of you who have done this, I have some questions:
  • What was your experience like?
  • Which islands were the highlights of your trip?
  • Did you go for a crewed charter or did you sail the yacht yourself?
  • What are some of the must-dos and sees that you recommend?
  • Are there any companies you would recommend for a first-timer?
  • Do you need an itinerary or can you be flexible?

Advice for Different Dishes to Try in Greece?

I’m really excited about exploring the local cuisine. I’ve heard so much about how delicious and diverse Greek food is, and I want to make sure I don’t miss out on any must-try dishes.

Could you please share your recommendations for Greek dishes that I should definitely try while I’m there? I’m particularly interested in both well-known classics and any regional specialties that might be a bit off the beaten path. Some questions:

  • Are there any dishes specific to certain regions in Greece that I shouldn’t miss?
  • I love street food! Any Greek street food recommendations?
  • What sweet treats should I indulge in?
Also, if you have any restaurant or taverna recommendations where I can experience these dishes authentically, that would be amazing!
