Greece & Turkey Fall 2012

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, my husband and I are visiting Greece & Turkey for our honeymoon in late Sept-early Oct. All flights, hotels and ferry tickets are booked! We want a trip with the perfect balance of exploring and relaxation. We spent 3 weeks in Europe last summer and visited 9 cities in 5 countries. It was go-go-go the entire time and we had a blast. But since it is our honeymoon this time, we want some R&R time.

To be honest, I am a little bit worried about the situation in Athens (strikes, riots, demonstrations, etc) but most blogs and forums I've read says strikes and protests are generally quite peaceful and to just stay away from government buildings and large crowds. What does everybody think of the situation there? Any concerns we should be aware of? I am worried about the air transport strike that may cause delays/cancellations of flights & ferries.

As well, my husband really wanted to visit Turkey and we've heard wonderful things about this country. Is Istanbul generally quite safe for tourists? I've read a few articles on a bombing at Topaki Palace last year..

I am doing a lot of research on each place we are visiting and would like some feedback on my itinerary. Are we missing any must-do's on the list or is there something we shouldn't bother with?

ITINERARY:

Day 1: Athens - visit Acropolis, Temple of Zeus, and surrounding sites
Day 2: Athens - visit Syntagma Square and Plaka District
Day 3: Flight to Mykonos
Day 4: relax in Mykonos, see windmills
Day 5: relax in Mykonos, beach time
Day 6: relax in Mykonos, beach/pool time
Day 7: Ferry to Santorini
Day 8: explore Santorini, watch sunset over volcano
Day 9: relax in Santorini, beach time
Day 10: explore Santorini - visit Oia Village and Ammoudi Island
Day 11: relax in Santorini, beach/pool time
Day 12: Flight to Istanbul
Day 13: explore Istanbul- Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, Basilica Cistern
Day 14: explore Istanbul - visit Suleymaniye Hamam (Turkish Bath) in the morning then shop at Grand Bazaar & Spice Bazaar
Day 15: explore Istanbul - Topaki Palace, Harem and over to Jennifer's Hamam to buy towels
Day 16: Flight to Athens, stay over one night
Day 17: Fly home

Thank you in advance for any advice and feedback :)
