Help needed please, we cannot make our minds up between Samos and Lesvos for a 2 week stay in August(asking the same question on the Lesvos Forum too)
I appreciate both islands will be busy and very hot at this time of the year.
So which do we choose, we are in our fifties, happy to hire a car to see as much as possible, like to get away from the crowds (in the hire car), like things to do rather than laying on a beach most of the time, must have good swimming/snorkeling locations available, again away from the crowds, prefer to stay in a none commercial location if possible.
Lesvos does seem to have a lot more sites of heritage/ancient monuments and places of interest etc to visit, I'm not sure if Samos can compete in that sense.
Decisions, decisions which one is right for us?.........any help from like minded people, who have perhaps been to both islands would be much appreciated.
