Ten Nights in Crete, Santorini & Mykonos

Well, you have ten nights to see three of the most beautiful islands in Greece for your romantic honeymoon. How exciting! Here are some tips...

Stay four nights in Crete.With four nights, focus on one geographic area of Crete because it is quite big. The west of the island is very beautiful, so this is the focus below.

We have looked into the flights directly from Rome - you need to fly from Rome to Athens, then we would suggest Chania airport in the west. The journey time, depending on your transfer in Athens airport, is approx. 5 hours. We suggest Aegean Airlines for this route.


Then later you could fly from Heraklion to Santorini, travel to Mykonos by air and then take a flight back to Athens. These routes have ferries too.

So, the air part of your trip would be as follows:

Rome - Athens - Chania ≠ Heraklion - Santorini - Mykonos - Athens - onwards.

We would suggest one night in the Old Town of Chania just after your arrival, which is very romantic, then a day trip to Elafonisi Beach. Then we suggest you stay in the beautiful Elia Guesthouse & Spa in the little village of Ano Vouves, which is inland but not far from beautiful beaches.

After two nights there you could make your way to the coastal village of Agia Pelagia which is not far from Heraklion, where you need to take a flight or ferry to Santorini. 5 km from Heraklion is the historic site of Knossos Palace, which is not to be missed. You could do this as a day tour from Agia Pelagia, or self drive.

A suggested itinerary with accommodation options is below. This itinerary can be travelled via taxi, public transport and transfers or with a hire car.

For pre-booked taxi transfers we suggest our partner Crete Cab. For hire car we suggest our partner Car Rental Centre Crete, where Harry and his team will look after you.

Travel from Crete to Santorini and travel to Mykonos on your Greek Island hopping holiday or honeymoon with our partner Direct Ferries...

Mykonos is an extraordinary town on a small yet beautiful island. Enjoy your days shopping, visiting cafes and admiring the narrow laneways in Mykonos Chora. Sit by the little harbour and visit Little Venice, gaze at the famous windmills. Did you know they featured at the end of the first Bourne movie?

See our tips for cafes and restaurants in Mykonos here...

Mykonos can get very busy in summer, the narrow laneways get too crowded. For this reason it is better to visit in shoulder season such as spring and Autumn. I visited in September and enjoyed exploring the architecture at my leisure. I discovered this little courtyard below, which is pristine and historic during the day and the entrance to a nightclub during the night!

This green doorway is a feast for the eye with its green tendril of grapevine against the white wall. Who lives behind it?

Another discovery in the back lanes was the outdoor cinema, a must for movie lovers...so romantic. The little church next to Little Venice is also very romantic

We wish you a memorable honeymoon full of little special moments, love and understanding as you get to know one another amidst the beauty of Crete, Santorini and as you travel to Mykonos...


Happy Honeymoon! Ευτυχισμένο Μήνα του Μέλιτος
