Hey guys,

Just wondering if anyone could offer me any advice on where to go in Greece. My friend and I are planning on staying there for 2 weeks and would like to especially visit the islands. Which do you recommend seeing and which do you recommend avoiding?

thanks for your time
any help would be great

love manda xoox

I haven't done much travel in Greece, and no island hopping, so can't help with that, but I would say that you don't need to bother spending much time in Athens (like one or two days tops, and only if you want to really spend time in the museums). Also, I'd just take the metro from place to place, you won't miss anything by not walking. Have fun.

The islands of Zante and Kos are fantastic, and as far I believe Zante is only just finding its touristy legs so is still dead cheap. you can't go wrong with island hopping, just stay a night in each island, you'll find the best beaches that way

The only one I got to check out was Crete. It was pretty cool, I thought. Scenic island, lots of history. I'd love to do Rhodes -- tons of historic sights there, as well.

Of course, Santorini is the island you see all those posters of with the white, cube-like buildings overlooking the sea. Not sure what there is to do once you walk around and have checked out the views, though...maybe dodge cruise ship passengers...

I would shoot for getting off the beaten tourist track. So many cruise ships stop on the same islands, giving their passengers just a few hours there, you'll probably hate it when you're caught in their stream.
