We've cut out a couple things from our honeymoon. Instead of going to 3 different islands (it was too much airtime for Ian - he hates flying!), we are only going to Athens and Crete. Once we got the updated itinerary from our travel agent, we realized that this sounds absolutely perfect for us. And we are SUPER excited about the hotels we're staying at. Here is our itinerary:
2 nights in Athens staying at Electra Palace Hotel Athens Electra Palace Hotel Athens where our room will have a view of the Acropolis. It's a perfect location so that we can walk just about everywhere for sightseeing, food, shopping, etc. After 2 days of sightseeing and getting used to the time difference, we're off to:
3 nights in Heraklion (a city in Crete) staying at Elounda Beach. We will have one of the bungalows that walks right out onto the beach. This will be the start of the lay on the beach and relax part of our honeymoon! Then, we will drive to the other side of Crete for:
4 nights in Chania staying at the Minoa Palace. This is a bigger resort and apparently you don't have to leave the resort for anything - you can eat, sleep and relax right there.
After getting tan (okay maybe not me so much) we will head back to Athens for one more day and night at Electra before our flight home the next afternoon.
I'm counting the days:)
