Just booked a 13 day trip to Greece. I will be staying in Athen's one night (we arrived at 1:30 pm) and then after that, I planned on taking the ferry to one of the Cyclades. After doing research I have been convinced to buy my in Athens, the only issue is I have yet to book a place because I have indecision/need advice.
I will be traveling with one other person. Budget is $250 a night for accommodations (maybe $300 but would much rather be cheaper than $250). We are both 22, and we are both from the states. We are well traveled but have yet to visit Greece. What advice do you have for us regarding which Island(s) we should visit for a combination of relaxation and fun.
Also, any recommendations regarding excursions are very appreciated or any advice for first-timers. I will appreciate anything you are willing to share!
