Those that know Turkey and/or Greece -I need your advice! Unique situation.

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I are planning a short trip (10 "real" days - doesn't include travel days) and we are trying to decide between Turkey or Greece. What makes this question different from the other hundreds of "Turkey or Greece?" questions is that I'm in a small wheelchair and I am looking for some general guidance regarding these countries and which one might be easier for me to visit.

I'm looking for advice on which cities would probably be ok, as well as those that I should wholely avoid. Some places that seemed difficult (but that I have conquered) have been Rome, Seville, Brussels, small hilltowns in Tuscany, and some small towns on the French & Italian riviera. I'm fine with cobblestones, but gravel more than one layer deep can be a problem. More than 2-3 stairs isn't doable, hills are okay but within reason. Beaches themselves aren't really an option, but I still love the coast and wouldn't mind spending some relaxing time around that type of area.

We aren't looking to cram a lot of stuff into 10 days - so only visiting 2 cities/areas is fine (unless otherwise suggested). We can always go back, so we'd rather not rush around like crazy.

In terms of getting around - we like walking, we're okay with driving as long as the area isn't too hectic, city buses are okay, but traveling between cities by bus isn't really an option - its hard to find accessible ones and the lifts always seem to be broken once you do - so too much of a hassle. Flying is good. NO trains, but that's another story :)

Our initial feeling is that we'd love to visit Istanbul, Cappadocia (though I know there probably isn't a lot there that I'd be able to do...), Santorini or Crete. But we are completely 100% open to suggestions. I know this is probably really broad, but I'm just looking for a little bit of direction to start with - just your first impressions from those that know some of these places relatively well. Once we decide on the country then I can really start to delve into the details and research.

We are planning to go in either April or May of 2012 - early planning, but thats kind of what you have to do when handicap rooms are limited. From what I've read this time of year is good for either Greece or Turkey, but if there is a better suggestion we aren't married to going in these months...

Anything helps!
