It was not an easy decision but when traveling in the month of March, we thought that taking a ferry, to visit an island, was not what we most wanted, so we came up with our tour of Greece for 10 days on our own.
Of the many things to visit in Athens in 1 day , we visited the two most famous neighborhoods of the Greek capital and the famous Agora of Athens , Hadrian’s Library and other interesting places in the area.

Greece has about 6,000 islands, of which about 200 are inhabited. You could spend a lifetime to visit them all! During our tour of the Greek islands we decided to focus on the archipelago of the Cyclades Islands, in the Aegean Sea, which comprises about 220 islands.Mykonos and Santorini are part of these islands, but if something was clear to us from the beginning is that we would not visit them in the middle of July. We needed tranquility above all else! And you don’t know how glad we were with our decision.
