When it’s spring in greece
Exactly, as Melqui and Silvia say, May and June, and September, are months with good weather and less tourist crowds than July or August (especially May, a beautiful month for the exuberance of the spring landscapes). A week in Greece gives you enough time for Athens and one island (or two islands, much more). As for Turkey, in a week you can do Istanbul (3 or 4 days) and a getaway (3 or 4 more days) to Cappadocia or the Aegean coast (Ephes/Pergamon).
Thanks for your advice. I will finally be 20 days touring and I have the itinerary already put together. However I have doubts about how to get from Rhodes to Santorini. I will be traveling at the end of May and would need to know if there are ferries every day or at least which days they do not run. I am also not clear on how long the trip takes.
Thank you very much. Anyway I think I will decide to travel by plane to Athens, take advantage to visit the city a little more and then go to Santorini by ferry That way, I make better use of the time getting to know places instead of spending so much time on the ship. I would like to know your opinion about this new idea.
