Sites and Museums in Greece

NB: This list has been maximized, i.e., we've listed everything we might possibly want to do on any given day. Otherwise, we'd be in trouble with the Greek government. It may happen that museums we wish to visit are closed (even though the official website says they're open) because of austerity measures, etc. Thus, we've listed some museums for several days. We may not be able to visit Milos because of disruptions in the ferry schedule, because of austerity measures, etc. Sometimes a bus driver cannot manipulate our bus through narrow streets because of traffic, etc.--this often happens in Argos.
