I am looking to take my girlfriend for a trip around Greece, but she's already been to Santorini and doesn't really like a lot of crowds. Is there any place that's super romantic that any of you recommend? I really want to spend some quality alone time together, because we don't get to see each other that much. I'm thinking of going just for a couple of days. Any advice?

Happy to give my opinion,I am confused,....You say 'I am looking to take my girlfriend for a trip around Greece,..... You then say
'I'm thinking of going just for a couple of days. Any advice?'
Are you going to do all the trip in 2 days and have a romantic time?
From where is your journey beginning?Let us begin to recommend you so you do have a romantic time.... There are many choices.After reading some suggestions from others here I would definitely consider Syros....

How about a smaller island, like Tinos? It has a charming appearance much like Santorini and Mykonos but it's a bit more off the beaten track. Also, one could find romance anywhere in Greece. Crete is a large enough island where you can easily avoid the crowds and stay in a part of the island that doesn't get as many tourists.

My vote would be any of these Greek islands:

- Crete
- Paros
- Zakynthos

All the Greek islands are amazing and it depends on the time of year plan on going as well you can find some of the more popular places without the big crowds of people. 🇬🇷🇬🇷

I think Lefkada would be a nice option. I also took a day trip to Hydra from Athens and it was so quiet and romantic. It really depends on what type of vibe you both are looking for. Greece had endless options.

Tinos is a great idea!

I have travelled all over Creta many times.....If anyone is heading out that way stay at Marelina's Apartments (They are partially rented exclusively by My Holiday Property Bond from UK, they also have a few apartments to rent directly.

My best memories are when they close the street to traffic behind and the Tavernas put out tables and chairs,a feeling of dining on the road.... Just magical! Trying different one every day.❤️❤️
