Sicily, Turkey, or Romania and Bulgaria?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are trying to decide on our next trip and have narrowed it down to these three possibilities: Sicily, Turkey, or Romania and Bulgaria. We are planning on an in-depth one-month trip (we are slow travel types), and are looking at next fall September/October timeframe.

Couple questions: Is fall too late to visit the Aeolian Islands? Has Turkey become anti-American? Of the two, which country is more appealing Romania or Bulgaria?

We are retired and have traveled extensively throughout Europe (favorite countries are France, Ireland, and Greece). We love history, traditional cultures, ancient ruins, and out-of-the-way small towns. We prefer to use public transportation most of the time with maybe a one-week car rental to visit hard to reach spots.

Which place would you recommend?
