I’m traveling to Greece for a week this June and while beyond excited I don’t really know exactly what to see. My mom & I are flying into Athens & then need to take a ferry back to Venice after 7 days. We want to spend a day or two in Athens visiting the must-sees but beyond that we’d like try to pick just one island to relax on…preferably one with picturesque white buildings with bright blue roofs perfect for enjoying saganaki. Any suggestions? PS I should also mention that I’m a Peace Corps volunteer so low-budget suggestions would be ideal. Thanks!

Corfu would probably work well, especially for ferrying back to Venice.
Please try a search (upper right-hand corner), we discuss Greece quite a bit here.

Santorini would be a nice experience for you. Corfu would be as well and does indeed make more sense transportation wise.
