My friends and I are currently in the exploration phase of a 10-12 day trip back to Greece this summer, because we loved it so much last summer. But, because we are Americans with limited vacation time we hate to repeat a trip without seeing something entirely new - preferably visiting at least 1 city in another country for a few days. So, the question now is what and how can we combine a visit in Greece (perhaps just Mykonos) with a visit to another destination in the region, like Turkey (our current preference is Istanbul) or Cyprus, or other destination in the region.
I haven't been able to find ferry connections between these countries (do they exist?) but know that flights are an option...and I have consulted whichbudget.com for possible budget flight options.
I would love any Fodorite suggestions on what you would combine with the Greek islands. Specifically, more adventurous advice is requested - we know we could just stay in the Greek islands and explore more of them, and are considering that (e.g. Crete) but are looking for some unique ideas (aside from simply staying in the Greek islands, which we do love)
So, in addition to Mykonos, where to go...and how to get there? Thanks in advance!
Add-on to Greece: Turkey, Cyprus, or ???
