    • 10 days in august

      by Maurice52 Online Now Dec 18, 2014 at 2:35 PM

      3 of us planning 10 days beginning August in Greece. Looks like we have to begin and end in Athens. Plan is to visit one or two islands....Siros is a definite and would like to see Mykonos also. Perhaps break the return ferry journey to Athens with another island?? Then a relaxing hideway ( for last three days) beach and peace important, within striking distance of Athens for return flight. All suggestions welcome. Thanks.

      How long it will take to look around in acropolis ?

      by lforlondon Online Now Dec 5, 2014 at 4:41 PM

      We will be arriving Athens in the middle of the day. After checking in at hotel around 1 o'clock, we would like to go to acropolis. Is it enough time to visit all including ancient agora, before the sun set.

      Ryainair flight from Athens

      by DianaMS Online Now Oct 17, 2014 at 6:26 AM

      Hello everyone.
      My question is:
      If I purchase Ryanair tickets online, but don't select any checked baggage at this point, can I do this later, closer to the actual travel date? will it be more expensive?(I want to purchase tickets for april 2015).
      Is it cheaper to pay for checked bagagge now than in the airport?

      Thanks so much!

    • taxi service (or transport option?) from piraeus port from/to hotel (intercontinental)

      by stacy_yx Online Now May 19, 2014 at 8:34 PM

      Hi,

      I am staying at athenatheum intercontinental..which is some distance away from syngrou fix station.
      We are travelling with a toddler and would like to seek advice on options.
      For my travel in June:
      I am intending to catch the early morning 7.20 blue star ferry from piraeus to naxos. (weekday morning)
      Is it easier to take a cab or ok to take metro early in the morning?

      We will have luggage and travelling with a child. how much will taxi cost?

      As for the return a few days later, .I will reach piraeus only at 2325hrs if I am taking blue star ferry.
      Is it safe to take any of the cabs at the port to the hotel? or shld I arrange for private taxi? any recommendation amd approximate cost for reference?

      The alternative would be to take the hellenic seaways which is faster and will reach piraeus at about 6pm on a weekday. I suppose it will be easier for me to catch the metro back to hotel? But I have heard that you may get seasick...am travelling with a toddler..so am weighing my options..

      Appreciate your advice!

      by Babelllla65 Online Now May 6, 2014 at 2:15 AM

      We are a family of 4 and we only have 1 whole day in athens on the way to Santorini and an evening on return and next day flying to Istanbul.
      I haven't create my own itinerary and from what I read and understand that mainly visitor start the holidays visiting the Acropolis early morning doing the walking tour starting at Acropolis subway station. Here I have a doubt where to start and to finish this tour: is this the right place to start by taking the metro or better go by taxi to the nearest entrance to the acropolis? My mother is of 73yrs and walk slowly.
      Which is the best exit door to find a taverna to have our early lunch? We would like to go to Plaka and Syntagma Square. We will stay in Cecil Hotel.
      Any more suggestions would be appreciated

      Beach hotel east coast of athen

      by clausito Online Now Feb 9, 2014 at 3:20 AM

      Thinks it is difficult to find a nice hotel close to athen and close to the beach.
      Price around 100 Euro per night
      Lot of possibilities along the east coast, but what to choose from Marathon to Porto Rafti? Not too much south of Athen because of too far distance to airport.
      We are on a 14 days roundtrip of Greece and will finish with 3 days relaxation

      Have you any ideas?
