So I will be staying on Crete from Aug 16-Aug 21. Not too much time (I am finding out) to explore this island, but that is all the time I have unfortunately. I have been reading that Chania is the place to stay, perhaps Rethymnon. But also need to see Knossos and fly in and out of Heraklion. Any thoughts about an efficient itinerary?? For any advice, I’d be so grateful!!
Also, I need to get to Gocek, Turkey next and meet friends who begin their/our vacation in Gocek on Aug 21. I booked a flight to Rhodes so as to hop a ferry to Turkey, but I’m wondering which options would be best, much less possible…
Flight: Heraklion > Rhodes Arrives 2:20p
Ferry: Rhodes > Fethiye Departs 4:30p
**Would I even make this?
or stay a night and tour the city/be one day late to meet up with friends
can take either of these on aug 22
Rhodes > Maramis departs 9:00a
Rhodes > Fethiye departs 4:30p
I am in a proper dilemma…
