Has anyone gone to Greece for vacation or honeymoon? I am trying to find recommendations of islands we should go to and places we should stay!

    I haven't, but I know a couple people, including my aunt and uncle, who recently went to Greece and LOVED it. Their pictures are stunning. Definitely go to Mykonos and Santorini.

    We went in August & got engaged there! Mykonos had beautiful beaches, make sure if you stay there stay at a hotel with beach access. Santorini was gorgeous! We rented an ATV & drove across the island to hit the small towns & beaches. Are you looking for more luxury hotels or standard?

    I loved Greece!! It's a great combination of beach and water activities, and touristy stuff

    I went on a cruise of a few islands (Mykonos, Santorini, and Rhodes) and would highly recommend it!

    Santorini is the most jaw-droppingly gorgeous place I have ever laid eyes on. I went there on a cruise, so I don't have any recommendations on where to stay, but definitely go there if you get the chance!

    A few of my favorite photos from my visit:

    I'm pretty sure we're going to Athens for ours! We've found a beautiful hotel that overlooks some of the ruins.

    We went for two weeks last summer! We spent 4 days in Athens, 5 in Mykonos and 5 in Santorini! Rent a 4 wheeler in Mykonos and explore all the beaches!!

    FH and I went to Athens and Mykonos back in September and were surprised by how much we loved both places. I'd actually recommend staying just a little bit off of the beaten path, as you may want a respite from the party-heavy beaches and crowded chora (town). We stayed at a great boutique hotel in Agios Stefanos, which was a short walk down a hill to the beach and offered complimentary shuttle service to the town (and service to other areas of the island for a fee). Try to spend a few days in Athens, too; some parts of it are a little run-down and there's a lot of graffiti, but its history is everywhere, the locals are really warm, and the food is incredible (and cheap, unlike in Mykonos).

    I studied abroad there and I loveeeee Greece! Definitely go to santorini! Athens is good for the history but it's a city and not beautiful like the islands. Mykonos is very popular and I hear great things. I stayed in Rhodes for four months but it couldn't compare to santorini imo

    We are going in June for our honeymoon. We are going to Naxos, Santarini and Athens. We booked with a local travel agent there who knew the area well.

    I've been a few times and I don't remember specifically places I've stayed but definitely agree with visiting santorini and Mykonos. Athens isn't necessarily as beautiful but still worth a visit if you're into the historical aspects. Glyfada outside of Athens has some beautiful beaches. Mykonos has a party atmosphere in some areas if that's what you're into. Santorini is just gorgeous. I'd suggest lots of island hopping.

    We just booked one week via Costco (cheaper and they include flights and help with hotel planning) to Athens, Mykonos, and Santorini this August
