Going to Greece!

I'm going to Greece for the first time next week and I was wondering if anyone had any tips or recommendations on things to see/do?

We'll be staying at this beachside resort 60 miles south of Athens for 10 days and then going to Santorini and Mykonos for 2 nights each. I can't wait!

Congrats. I'm actually going in 3 weeks.

I unfortunately have no recommendations except to eat as much fish as possible.

skip Mykonos. Go to Ios instead. Ios rocks.

For a second there I thought this was an escort thread.

Lots of lube.

Er, wait, "going to Greece" isn't metaphorical here?

Second the recommendation to skip Mykonos. Very touristy. Depending on your desire to party, I'd either stay on Santorini for the full four (sedate), or go to Ios for the other two (not so sedate).

Re: Going to Greece!

Oh Ios...
I only planned to stay there for a week or two. It ended up being 5 weeks. Here's why:

Party until 7 or 8 AM.
Eat a Gyro for breakfast.
Sleep until 3 or 4 in the afternoon, missing the ferry back to the mainland.
Eat a Gyro for dinner.
Repeat.

I miss Ios.
