We love Greece, the people, the Greek way of life and have visited more than 20 islands over time from Thassos and Skiathos to Samos near the Turkish mainland. The four day pass is a great way to see a number of them but you have to consider the distances involved and plan carefully before buying one. In another life I spent 6 months travelling around the islands and you have just four days. Take the highly popular island of Mykonos in the Cyclades for example. It is is a 5 hour boat ride from Piraeus or 2.5 hours on a high speed ferry...if your ticket allows you to use it. Once there you can visit Paros (an hour's ride) and the tiny but gorgeous island of Anti Paros (approx. 30 mins from Paros) which I highly recommend, where Tom Hanks has a house but remember, on one of these four days you will need to get back to Piraeus and you can do that from Paros. There are islands much nearer Piraeus but these three would fill your days with others 45 mins ish ride away.

Santorini is another great destination but I would mention it is about 145 miles from the mainland and potentially a 9 hour ferry ride. After leaving Athens, you don't want to spend all your time on ferries, so planning is the way forward and serious time table checking.
