A Greece honeymoon is one of the best decisions you can take for an unforgettale experience, as Greece is considered one of the most romantic places in the world (for many good reasons). This is an honest guide from a greek to make your planning as easy as possible!
Ok, let’s get things straight from the beggining: you are probably seaching for the best honeymoon location or best honeymoon package for you and your other half, to get on an amazing trip.
You can probably go down the very obvious path: Hawaii, Maldives, Paris, Italy or the Carribean but I can assure you that after you read this guide, you’ll want to put Greece on the top of your list.
Greece has amazing mild meditteranean weather (like California) with 4 seasons, amazing culture, incredibly photogenic landscapes, romantic islands and one of the best local cuisines in the world.
If you decide to plan a honeymoon in Greece , in this guide I will give you all the tips you need to know such as: when to visit Greece, most romantic hotels, where to stay in Greece, most romantic restaurants and the best things to do in your honeymoon in Greece.
Before starting throwing lots of islands or beautiful beaches and towns with strange names it is rather wise of me to lt you understand a little bit about the geography (boring…!) of this amazing country called Greece (here it is on Google Maps).
So what are the best places to go in Greece?
If this is about your honeymoon, then you have to follow the famous greek itinerary:
…and that’s pretty much a week to 10 days honeymoon in Greece!
If you want to visit places in Greece that are probably less crowded and touristic then I highly recommend these:
Unfortunately, you cannot combine the islands on the west side (such as Corfu or Kefalonia or Zakynthos) with islands on the east (such as Santorini, Mykonos or Crete) because it is difficult to make it work logistically because they are not very well connected (you have to go through Athens, take a s and then a flight or a erry…). Don’t get me worng: it is doable but you will be wasting too much time on transportation.
And what are the most romantic places to go in Greece?
In regards, to Athens, I wouldn’t necessarily call it romantic as it is a big city with lots of areas and neighboorhoods but it has its own charm with its famous archaeological ruins and museums.
But let me give you more details about these places and why I believe are the best for your Greece honeymoon:
Chances are your flight is landing in Athens (especially if you are coming from the US) but even if that is not the case, I strongly advise you to visit Athens for a couple of nights. Especially if this is your first time in Greece.

Mykonos is one of the Europe’s hotspots for celebrities and wealthy peole. The island has an amazing boheme vibe and Mykonos beaches are some of the best in Greece. However, I do not recommend spending more than 2-3 nights in Mykonos because the island can be quite tiring as there are lots of parties going on (especially in July and August).
