This post is for all of my budgeters! I would love to know if anyone has advice on inexpensive islands visit in Greece. I have found that over the years, the prices of hotels and restaurants are increasing and getting way too expensive. I would love to keep traveling to Greece, because it’s my favorite destination but I don’t want to break the bank either. Any advice from seasoned Greek travelers? Thanks 😊

I recommend Paros! Much cheaper than Mykonos and Santorini and a quieter alternative

Hello from Athens. I would say the cheapest island would be Evia and some remote parts of Crete. But have in mind that prices change - become higher in July and August. So, if you travel in September, you'll find better prices (and fewer crowds and better service). :)

Great advice, if you're looking for cheap then don't travel during the summer

Go to the lesser known islands like Andros, Tinos ( easy to reach from Athens ) or the smaller ones Amorgos, Folengandros, Sikinos ( travel time and costs are higher) and off season is always cheaper.

Sikinos is a great recommendation! I had a friend who went a couple years back and they still can't stop talking about it. Cyclades is the best!

I am curious about which islands you traveled to, as well. Which places in Greece do you find expensive, so that it can put things into perspective... I have lately found all of Greece expensive, just because it is a pretty expensive process getting to Greece from the United States.
 

Great Neighborhoods to Visit in Athens?

I know that Athens is a big city, and I tend to do the same things all the time. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love what I end up doing in the city. Here is where I visit:

  • Plaka - it's touristy, but I love it
  • Monastiraki - I really love the flea market!
  • Syntagma - I like to hang around at the square and poke around
  • Kifisia - I love shopping!
I know there is a ton to do. I want to branch out!

Help Navigating Trip to Mykonos

I can't shake that I want to go to Mykonos soon, but I am nervous because I've heard mixed things about the island. What attracts me to the island is the party scene - but a lot of what goes with the party scene turns me off. I don't know if any of you have advice on how to navigate it. I want to enjoy the parties, but I want to also be able to avoid them here and there to sightsee, relax, etc. So I want a balance. If this isn't the place for that kind of balance, I am open to suggestions.

Which island group is your favourite?

Share You Santorini Photos...

I would love to see your Santorini photos. I want to visit but am hesitant because of what I have head about the crowds. I would love to visit this church, too!
