Season 3 - Greece & Turkey sounds like great places to visit this year.

GREECE

With 6,000 islands and islets, Greece has beautiful scenery all around that makes it a highlight of season 3. The Ionian, Sporades, Cyclades, and Dodecanese Islands are bucket list-worthy destinations. Crete, Thassos, and Evia are other locations we will try to see if we have enough visa time.


There are roughly 227 out of the 6,000 islands that are inhabited. So we are in for a good mix of places that have been developed or untouched.

Corfu or Kerkyra is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea, of the Ionian Islands, and, including its small satellite islands, forms the margin of the northwestern frontier of Greece.

The Corinth Canal (Greek: Διώρυγα της Κορίνθου) is an artificial canal in Greece that connects the Gulf of Corinth in the Ionian Sea with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland, making the peninsula an island. The canal was dug through the Isthmus at sea level and has no locks. It is 6.4 kilometres (4 miles) in length and only 24.6 metres (80.7 feet) wide at sea level, making it impassable for many modern ships.


Leg 12 - Athens the capital of Greece (we will skip this stop and come back later)

Athens is the capital of Greece. It was also at the heart of Ancient Greece, a powerful civilization and empire. The city is still dominated by 5th-century BC landmarks, including the Acropolis, a hilltop citadel topped with ancient buildings like the colonnaded Parthenon temple.


Welcome to the Cyclades

The Cyclades is a group of Greek islands, southeast of the mainland in the Aegean Sea. It centers on uninhabited Delos, considered the birthplace of Apollo, and home to some of Greece’s most important archaeological ruins. Many of the islands are popular holiday destinations, known for their beaches, ancient sites, rugged landscapes and traditional blue-and-white stucco towns overlooking the sea.
