10/30/2012 Istanbul Flight Home

In Bodrum we were think about staying at Macakizi but it looks a little far away from the city proper and we wanted to do dinners there and walk around and whatever other sites Bodrum has to offer. Is it better to stay at MacaKizi or more towards Bodrum proper?

In rhodes we were thinking about Lindos Blu but were curious about being in Oldtown Rhodes. Any suggestions? What is closer to culture activities places to walk dinners etc...?

In Crete we are planning on doing Blue Palace or Amirandes but Chania has struck our interest as well. What area of the island is better to stay in? We do want to see all the ruins and things like that.

In Santorini we were thinking Canaves Oia or Ikies.

In Istanbul we are planning on staying at Empress Zoe as it's central to everything wed want to do in the Sultanahmet.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Is the length of time in each location appropriate? Are there other areas we should look into? Ideally we'd like to be close to nice areas to walk around and that are close to the cultural sites.

A list of things we should do in each location would be very helpful as well.

Lastly does anyone have any good suggestions on dictionaries/phrasebooks?

Thanks so much for your help. The flight is set everything else can be tweaked!
