Inland in the summer will be tough.

Greece has beautiful places to go to. I truly belivee it is the most beautiful country in the world. You can find beauty at many places, but Greece has lots of different landscapes in such a small land, it is unique.

RIght off the coast of Turkey, you can go to Rhodes, (very beautiful and varied, but quite touristy) but also other islands, such as Kos, and if you have company and arel ooking for peace and quiet, Kastellorizo and Symh

Thank you to BOTH Anna's! I've been looking at youtube videos of Rhodes...
I read taxes in Greece are 40% - Highest on the whole planet...
I've lived most my life on the water... So I think Ankara, Turkey might get to me after a while...I sure hope I can afford to hop on over to a sunny beach on a Greek island!

Hi Blue, no problem taking a ferry (or even the plane) from Turkey to Greece. You do not need a visa as a tourist with a US passport.
I've never done it, but I have friends who live in Thessaloniki and go to Lesvos for vacation every summer. They drive through Turkey and take the ferry- it is shorter and cheaper they say!

Hello Blue. It won't be a problem getting to Greece from Turkey.
For example, my island, Rhodes, is so close that we can get
a ferry over in a few hours. I myself have flown from Istanbul
to Athens and it's not a long flight.

You need to go to a good travel agent and let them know what
you want to do. It may be cheaper to get it online, but I still
prefer an established travel agent. Fire away and I can see
how I can help you.

I'm in the US (Wa State to be exact) and will be going on an extended visit to Turkey late next year. While there I hope to visit visit Greece.

I'll have my US Passport of course, and a Turkish visa to enter Turkey, I wonder if anyone here knows if I can just ferry or fly on over to Greece from Turkey with no problems?

I know I could fly from the US to Greece with just my Passport, no visa necessary, but will that be the same coming in from Turkey?

It's my first trip, and I'm exhausted with the amount of knowledge one must obtain to travel abroad.I feel like I need to take a college course!
