My girlfriend and I (age 24) want to do a greek island trip and possibly turkey sometime in either june or july of this summer. We will be traveling from Toronto. I have very little knowledge as to traveling in Greece and the little research I have done is a little overwhelming in terms of all the different places that we could go to and all the different ways in which we can accomplish this, as per cruise or whatever.
I don't think we want to do a cruise as most of the time will be spent on the boat rather than ashore. We plan to spend around 1-2 weeks on this vacation. As said before, my knowledge on Greece is very little. What I can tell you is that we want to experience some of the must see parts of the country that are very nice and not necessarily super touristy although if that cannot be avoided, that is OK. Where should we start? How many islands should we go to? Which ones? How should we travel amongst the various islands? Can we do around 3-4 days in Turkey as well? What are the most appropriate islands for people our age? We do not necessarily want to party a ton but places that attract a younger crowd is good for us. Please let me know what you guys think.
