There is no shade so go early and it gets packed - we decided to lose the guide after 15 mins and met them back at the bus - we had decided that the school type lesson was droning on a little too long at each place she stopped.
Marmaris - this is a holiday place with an old and new town - we walked all the way to the beach (30 mins) and it was pretty. They really take care of you on the beach with no charge for beds etc as long as you buy your drink from them. A lovely little paddle and lots of bargain copy goods. Son got jeans and a Liverpool shirt (copies of course but he's not bothered) for little money
It's pretty - you can get to a small sandy beach easily or walk around the limited number of shops.
We found the famous pelican sheltering from the sun under a tree - looking like he'd had his share of fish for a week.
Santorini is beautiful - a volcano erupted that left the island split into a few parts. You tender in here and ride up the cable car for 4Euro each way. The white winding streets of shops are interesting and you can take a trip to Oia which has the white buildings with blue roofs that you see on all the pictures. Great bar near the cable car at the top with a great funny owner making everyone laugh. He asked my step mum if she wanted 'him or the menu' and she chose him!
Canakkale - pronounced Chanankale - visited Troy ruins - interesting but lumps of ricks and nothing has been rebuilt. The horse used in the film is in the centre harbour front in Canakkale and they have fantastic ice cream and kebabs for little money.
Cesme - wasn't supposed to stop here but it had a massive harbour with shops and the town centre was pretty - the people really friendly and they all spoke english
Nauplion - could have happily missed this one - walked around in about an hour - unless you want to climb the 999 steps to the fortress.
