Hey guys, me and my cousin are planning on visiting Greece and Turkey from May 25-June 7. We are landing in Istanbul and leaving from there as well so we'll be there from the 25-27th and hopefully be back in Istanbul on the 6th.
Our plan is to fly out to Bodrum and be there on the 27th and most likely catch a Ferry on the 28th over to Kos where we can then take the connecting Ferries along the Greek Islands. What we wanted to know is what would be our best options as far as Islands to visit in Greece, basically if you had one chance to see the Greek Islands where should we go!
We've narrowed our choices down to Santorini, Ios, Naxos and Mykonos...If we got to see three of these Islands we would be satisfied (we always travel like crazy people and go at a fast pace so it shouldnt be a problem). The other thing is we also plan on making our way over to Athens and spending a day or two there before flying back out to Istanbul. BUT we were wondering if it's worth it to skip one island perhaps so we have time to rent a car and take a two day trip to Delphi and Meteora? We would only spend a short period of time there (leave Athens in the morning, hit Delphi for a few hours and drive up to Meteora for the night, spend the morning there and head back to Athens and perhaps fly back to Istanbul same day/night).
If you could help us out and give some suggestions as to what Islands are best to see and if it's worth it to drive to Meteora we would really appreciate it! Thanks!
