I'm off for Italy on sunday [OMG I WILL NOT FRET :D] and then onto the Greek Islands... Question is, THER AER SO MANY! Which ones do you guys reccy I hit? I want beaches and some nightlife, but also some cultural stuff - and I don't want to stay in one place forever.

If that's not too tall an order... Any suggestions? :D

I know that Santorini is great, and you could give Corfu and the Pink Palace a try-- supposedly one of the biggest party hostels in Europe. Other than that I have no suggestions. Have a great time tho!

Have fun, Jacq!

For culture, I recommend Crete...what with the ruins of Knossos and the classy, seaside town of Chania with its Venetian influences. There's also hiking, beaches, tiny villages, etc., to explore.

Of course, I'm biased: It's the only Greek island I've been to! I'm dying to go to Rhodes and Santorini, though!
