I haven't been to many of those places, so can't really comment on how much time you'll need to enjoy each place. But just from looking at it, it certainly does look jam-packed! Personally, I would think about cutting back a bit, but that's just me! It does look extra fun though!

My main comment is :

Pace wise, as long as you keep the possibility to change the schedule, I see no problem. The Greece part does seem a bit fast (only one full day in Athens for example), but you can always decide to skip something while on the road.

HAVE A GREAT TIME !!!!!!! :D

I agree about it being fast-paced, especially Greece. If you are up for all the travel time it will be fine, but being flexible is good. You may end up wanting to lay on the beaches of the Greek Isles for a while I know I planned 2 - 3 days there and stayed 5, all on one island!
