#20: Visit Turkey, Greece or the Adriatic Sea – 30 before 30 list

It’s official! I’m going to Greece and Turkey in less than a month. Flights and hotels are booked, guidebooks and clothing are strewn around the house, and we’re getting down to business planning the perfect itinerary. And for some reason, I’m quite excited that we’ll be seeing the Aegean Sea and the Black Sea in one trip. Here is my unofficial itinerary:

  • Days 1-2: Athens
  • Days 3-5: Santorini
  • Day 6: Heraklion, Crete with a daytrip to Knossos
  • Day 7: Chania, Crete with a daytrip through the Samaria Gorge
  • Day 8: Athens and Delphi
  • Days 9-11: Nafplion with daytrips to Mycenea and Epidauros
  • Days 12-16: Istanbul

Supposedly, fall is the perfect time to visit Greece, as the weather is still great but the crowds are gone. I’m counting down the weeks until I get to cross #20 off my 30 before 30 list.

So, what do you think?
