Since a lot of you have asked me what I’m going to do in Greece and where I’ll be going, I decided to make a big blogpost about it! I’m going to tell you guys day by day what we’ll be doing and seeing. If you have any tips for restaurants or cafés, let me know in the comments! I’ll add a little compilation of photo inspo to each destination we’ll be visiting!
Day one to three: Athens
Athens will be our first stop! We decided to stay here for about two and a half days. It’s our first stop and we won’t be hiring a car yet. We want to just take it all in. This is the capital of Greece and you can see a lot of cool things here. The Acropolis being the biggest attraction. I’m a big fan of history and culture. I just love old things and imagining people from the old times walking around in certain places. This will be so beautiful! You also have a lot of other things to visit such as the Parthenon. Me and Thomas love strolling around in a city and getting to know it as well as possible so we’re planning on walking around a lot in the different neighborhoods, Plaka being one of the most beautiful ones. A lot of pictures will be taken here people. We also want to eat until we die on this trip so this will be a big part of our Athens adventure. I also would love to do some shopping and strolling around in the markets and we’ll have plenty of time for everything.
After our great Athens citytrip it’s time to hop into the car and start our epic roadtrip. Our first stop is Epidaurus! Also here we’ll be able to imagine how the old greek lived. One of the most beautiful things to see here is a very nice and beautiful old theatre.
After visiting Epidaurus, we’ll be heading towards Corinthe. Here we’ll be visiting Ancient Corinth. This is a very nice archeological site. Today we can see ruins from temples to baths. To end our day we’ll be heading to Nafplio. This is a very beautiful city by the coast and it’s just the most romantic thing ever! We’ll be arriving here around 16:00 so we’ll probably stroll around a little and eat some delicious food.Day 5: Nafplio to Mycenae to Sparta
Waking up in a beautiful, cosy and instagramworthy little beach city. Our plan is to walk around by the beaches and take a plunge in the sea. We’ll also be taking a lot of instagrammable photos and eating our butts off! After our mini beachbreak it’s time to drive to Mycenae. Here we find a big archeological site which used to be a military stronghold. As I said before, I LOVE archeology and ancient stuff so I’ll enjoy this A LOT!
After our jump back in time we head to Sparta. THIS IS SPARTA! It sounds like a very impressive city but it actually isn’t that big. There isn’t a lot to see here but it’s so legendary. It happened to be a 20 minutes drive from our next destination so we decided to pay this legendary place a visit! Day 6: From Mystras to Olympia
Today we’ll be visiting a very big archeological site! We’ll be needing 4 hours to see everything so it will possibly be an early morning. After this and some food to fuel up (and maybe a car fuel up as well haha) we might be heading to some awesome waterfalls. We’re not sure if we’ll be doing this because it’s a little detour, but it looks so pretty and I think some refreshment will do us good. They are called the Polylimnio waterfalls and yes you can swim in them! We’ll end our day in Olympia, have some amazing moussaka and go to bed because the next day is going to be awesome!
Day 7: Olympia.
You might think of the olympics when you hear this name and actually this is the place where the very first Olympic games took place!! WHAT!? That’s crazy and you can visit some insane ruins and shit here. It’ll be epic. After lunch we’ll be heading towards Delphi. Getting our bellies filled with fried greek deliciousness and strolling around a bit but then straight to bed for our next adventure.
Delphi used to be one of the most visited oracles of Greece. Legend says that the oracle was made by the god Apollo. It’s situated on and between the mountains and looks amazing. The legend and history of this place makes me so happy and I’ll be so excited to visit this incredible ruin. Next up: Meteora. It’s time to get our legs moving and our hike skills activated because this is one of the most epic places to hike that I have ever seen (on photos at least). There are six monasteries that are built on immense natural pillars and you can do a big breathtaking hike to see all of them! Day 9/10: Meteora to Thessaloniki
The day after we’re planning on getting up early and hiking to see a sunrise! Or we’ll just do another hike in the area. After a lunch we drive to Thessaloniki. The second biggest city in Greece! It looks so pretty and yes you can do some shopping here. There are a lot of fun activities to do here so we’ll be staying here for 2 nights. Day 11/12: Island time!
Big drive to Athens and hop on the ferry because it’s time for some island madness. Our first stop: Mykonos. One of the most famous Greek islands so we can’t skip this one. It’s famous for its white beaches, beautiful houses and nightlife. It’s time for us to relax here and soak up some beach, sun and cocktails. We’ll be gorging on so much food on these islands, you won’t even believe it. Chill mode is on! Day 13/14: Paros
This is also a very beautiful island but slightly less touristic! We’re planning on renting a scooter here and discovering the island! Also some beach action and food madness will be present. And oh! A lot of Instagram footage will be shot here haha :p. Day 15/16: Santorini
To end our Greek adventure in style, one of the most beautiful islands in Greece: Santorini. You have probably seen it all over instagram already and there’s a reason for that. The island is just so breathtaking! From the houses to the streets to the beaches. The perfect end of our amazing trip! Eating ourselves in a food coma while burning in the sun for the last 2 days and then it’s time to head home. ET VOILA! That’s our itinerary! I hope you guys got some inspiration and you can always give me some extra tips in the comments!! 😀
