What country would you pair with Turkey? Greece?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning on a trip to Turkey in August with our four kids. Our priorities are to visit Istanbul, Ephesus and Cappadocia. I would like to add a second country to our trip to have as many different experiences as possible. Greece seems like the most economical option since it is a ferry ride away. We have 3-4 weeks.

So, these are the things I've considered.
Option #1. Stay in Turkey the entire time and add the Turquoise coast. (My husband is worried about driving on our own and we are considering a guide).

Option #2. Keep to just the priorities in Turkey (Istanbul, Cappadocia, Ephesus) and then spend the rest of our stay on an island in Greece.

Option #3. Which is probably too time consuming and expensive to travel to a different region. If anyone has another country suggestion I'd love to hear it. I've dreamed of going to Italy and my husband would love to take our family to Israel. If anyone has any experience please share so I can see if we could make it work too :).

Thanks,
