Greece is a great honeymoon destination. Your Greece honeymoon itinerary will be highly dependent on the type of trip you want to take. An adventurous Greece honeymoon itinerary is going to look a lot different than one that is relaxing. Greece has something to offer to every couple looking to spend their honeymoon there. In this post, I am going to cover one idea for a 10-day Greece honeymoon itinerary! My husband and I got married and spent our honeymoon in Greece. It was magical and couldn’t have picked a better place to honeymoon!

10-Day Greece Honeymoon Itinerary
The below 10-day Greece honeymoon itinerary is easy to customize to your needs. I included the Greek islands of Paros, Naxos, and Milos. I highly recommend these three islands for your honeymoon! We had a great experience on these islands during our honeymoon. We found that they were not as busy as some of the more popular islands like Santorini and Mykonos. They were also more affordable for better quality food, souvenirs, and services.
Note: In this guide, I am skipping Santoirini as I didn’t think it had much of a romantic vibe since it was expensive, crowded, and a bit chaotic. If Santorini is a top destination you want to visit, I recommend replacing it with either Naxos or Paros. However, Paros is known for being a “Santorini dupe” and a recommended alternative since you get the same white cobblestone streets and charming boutiques. If you did want to visit Santorini, 1 or 2 days is enough and I would highly recommend staying in Oia at a hotel with a view!
Athens (Day 1 & 2)
Most likely if you are flying into Greece, you are going to be starting in Athens. Athens is a great place to get your bearings. You could spend a week in Athens and still have many more things to do because of the amount of history there is in this city! However, if you are looking to have more of a romantic honeymoon, I recommend spending the majority of it on the islands.
After flying in, be sure to stay in the heart of Athens. This is around a 30- 40 minute taxi away from the airport. If you haven’t previously visited Athens, the Acropolis is a must-see landmark. I recommend spending 2 days in Athens as on your first day you will likely be getting in late, or just not have the complete time to sightsee. For the second day, spend time sightseeing. Head to the Acropolis, Ancient Agora, and pick a museum. Make sure to grab your first gyro (I recommend Kountouriotiko). I have a post on how to spend 24 hours in Athens, Greece that you can read here for more on how to spend your time in the city!
Paros (Day 2, 3 & 4)
Paros has the perfect romantic ambiance to begin the island-hopping portion of your honeymoon! To save time, fly into Paros. Tickets are only slightly more than the ferry and you will save a few hours, plus money on taking a taxi to the port (which is nearly an hour away from the heart of Athens). While you’re in Paros, be sure to visit the mountain villages of Lefkes and Marpissa, shop in the boutiques and grab a nice dinner by the water in Naoussa, and take a day trip to the Antiparos caves if you’re looking for something adventurous to do. You can read my full guide to Paros here.
Naxos (Day 4, 5 & 6)
Naxos is known for its beautiful beaches and is a great island to spend time relaxing! Some of the most notable beaches in Naxos are Agios Prokopios, Agia Anna, Mikri Vigla, and Plaka Beach. This island is only a short 30-minute ferry from Paros, so you won’t need to spend the entire day traveling. While in Naxos, be sure to take a catamaran tour to all the best beaches, visit the shops in Naxos Town, and make the small trek to Portara, which is the remains of an unfinished Temple of Apollo. You can read my full guide to Naxos here.
Milos (Day 7, 8 & 9)
If Paros and Naxos already didn’t steal your heart, Milos definitely will! Milos is the perfect island to finish off your honeymoon after taking it slow in Naxos. You will want to take a ferry to get to Milos. There are lots of things to do and places to visit. While you are in Milos, you can’t miss Sarakiniko Beach (an Instagram-famous moon-scape beach), a boat tour to Kleftiko, and the small fishing village of Klima where you can eat right on the beach. You can read my full guide to Milos here.
Athens (Day 9 & 10)
On day 9, fly back into Athens so you can catch your flight back home on day 10. If it’s windy in the Cyclades be sure to have a backup plan as flights can be canceled due to high winds and the only other option is a ferry that leaves once or twice a day from the port!
10-Day Greece Honeymoon Itinerary
If you are planning your honeymoon in Greece, you won’t be disappointed. There is something for everyone to do, no matter what kind of honeymoon you are planning on having! Not only that, but the views anywhere you go will be beautiful, and the Greek locals are so friendly and accommodating. The Greeks go above and beyond to make sure you are having a special and memorable time.
I hope this guide 10-day Greece honeymoon itinerary helped plan your trip. If you are spending longer than 10 days in Greece, you can easily add another island to your itinerary. You can also increase the time you are spending on each island. If you are looking to change up this itinerary, I wouldn’t recommend spending less time than what is budgeted above for each island.
