The Ultimate Greece Honeymoon Itinerary

Instead of going through a day-by-day plan, I’m going to show you the best things to do in each Greek destination on this two-week Greece honeymoon itinerary. 

There’s no point just staying in one place when there are SO many stunning spots to visit. From island hopping around Mykonos and Santorini or diving into ancient history in Athens capital, to sipping Grecian wine and enjoying the finer things in life, these are the ideal places to visit during your honeymoon in Greece.


First up, how can we not talk about the stunning Greek island of Mykonos? If you and your loved one are looking for a lively atmosphere and a luxurious, high-end feel, then this is a great destination for your romantic holiday in Greece.

From delicious cocktails overlooking the crystal clear waters to sunset cruises to the neighbouring island of Delos, famous for its links to Greek mythology, Mykonos is an island that’s definitely all about the finer things in life. It’s one of the best Greek islands for couples for a reason!

If you’re looking for a little adrenaline boost, Mykonos is the perfect place to learn to windsurf. Spend a day trip on the golden sand at one of the many beach clubs, shredding the waves with your new spouse and making plenty of memories!

Mykonos is known for its whitewashed buildings and blue accents

In terms of accommodation, choose from boutique hotels, luxury hill-top resorts and Instagram-friendly honeymoon resorts. There are plenty of stunning infinity pools that go on forever!

While there are plenty of five-star, luxury honeymoon hotels all around Mykonos – and you can check out some of them here – one of my personal favourites has to be Mykonos Blanc.

With a minimalist design, crystal clear panoramic sea views, and a reputation as one of the most highly recommended honeymoon destinations on the island, there’s a lot to love about a stay here! 


If you’re looking for luxury, iconic scenery, and a Mamma Mia feel to your Greek honeymoon itinerary, then I’d recommend spending a few days in Santorini.

You might need to start saving now as this is one of the most expensive Greek islands. It’s full of beautiful places to stay, and a bit of a volcanic wonderland.

Some of the biggest highlights are the vineyards and food scene. Producing some of the oldest wine in the world, a full day of wine tasting is a great addition to your to your two-week Greece honeymoon itinerary. I’d recommend looking at this tour which will also show you some of the best sights on the island.

Santorini is also a great place to start or end your honeymoon, as it has a well-connected international airport on the island itself. This can be pretty rare for Greek islands, so not having to rely on ferries from the get-go is a great way to start your honeymoon off in the right way!

In terms of luxurious places to stay, there are some amazing honeymoon hotels in Santorini. One of the most popular is Astra Suites. With an infinity pool that takes in some of the best views on the island and a prime location for sunset lovers, this five-star accommodation never misses!

Can we even talk about a Greece honeymoon itinerary without including the iconic capital city? From the ancient Acropolis to the bustling street food scene, Athens is an essential part of any Grecian adventure.

We recently spent the weekend in Athens as a couple and absolutely loved it! It’s so vibrant and while it’s famed for artefacts, it also feels very youthful and urban.

Of course, you have to spend at least a day or two exploring the National Archeological Museum and the Acropolis. It’s touristy but worth it. Try and check out the Acropolis at golden hour or just as the sun is setting for a remarkable and romantic view without such huge crowds.

Obviously, Athens is the ideal destination to fly in or out of at the start of your Greek honeymoon, with lots of international flight links, as well as internal flights and ferries to all of the major islands.

If you’re looking for a romantic sunset temple tour, then check out this tour of the Temple of Poseidon. Of course, as it pays tribute to the God of the Sea, this well-protected archeological marvel is located right on the cliff top with jaw-dropping views across the sea towards the islands. Bring a picnic and a glass of Grecian wine, and relax!
