Did you know that Troy is in Turkey? And Pergamum, and Ephesus, and Hierapolis, and Constantinople. All of these “Greek” places are actually in Turkey.
If you’re interested in classical history, you’ve got to see both Turkey and Greece, because the glories of ancient Greece and Rome were spread across both countries. They were both part of the Ottoman Empire. They share a common history, and yet they are quite different in many ways as well.
It’s a no-brainer: visit both of the countries bordering the Aegean Sea, Turkey and Greece, on one trip.
What a trip! Lots of travelers want to do it.
Luckily, it’s easy to visit the high points of both Greece and Turkey on one trip, even a fairly short one: Athens, the Greek islands, Istanbul, Ephesus, Cappadociaand more.
Having the best transport plan is what makes it possible for travelers to see both Turkey and Greece in the optimal amount of time. Get the transport wrong, and you’ll spend too much of your trip enroute and not enough enjoying the beaches, the bazaars, thearcheological sites, the cuisine and the people.
I can help you plan the Turkish portion of your trip, but I’m no expert on Greece. What you need is a travel agency that’s expert in both countries, one that has close contacts in both Turkey and Greece and—most importantly!—can plan the tricky transportation for you (flights, ferryboats, island cruises, train, bus and car).
