So you want to visit Greece do you? Ok then, Greece is made up of about 6,000 islands – which are you going to visit?
“Hold up,” you might be thinking, “not all of those islands are inhabited, so it isn’t like I have 6,000 options from which to select.”
Fair enough, you are absolutely correct. According to Greek travel site, greeka.com, only 227 of the Greek islands are inhabited. So that narrows it down quite a bit.
meldoy is facing this very dilemma and has asked for advice over on the Lonely Planet Thorn Tree forums.
We have 2 weeks and would like to limit ourselves to 2-3 islands. We’re not interested in night life or shopping – we’d like a quiet place with some good hiking, good food and scenic villages. Any ideas?
Though only a couple of fellow travelers have posted suggestions at the time of this writing, between the two of them they have offered detailed advice on more than 10 of the Greek islands, replete with ideas as to how long to stay and what to do on different islands.
If you have suggestions that could help meldoy make a decision please consider posting them on the thread. Or, if you are yourself considering a trip to the Greek islands you might want to checkout the suggestions in this thread to prepare for your own trip.
