      We are planning to take a 4 day classical tour from Athens ( Epidaurus, Mycenae, Olympia, Delphi, Meteora). On the internet, one sees that there are many tour operators, each with equally good reviews. Could any fellow VT member share with us his/her knowledge or experience to help us decide which tour to go on.

      12 days in Greece : Itineary

      Greece Nov 29, 2014 at 1:29 PM

      Hello VTers,
      After receiving all of your advice and suggestions (especially thanks to mindcrime, brotherleelove, rexvaughan, DAO and to name a few), I have come up with the following plan. Please review and advise.
      Day 01: Arrive Athens in the afternoon; Night life in Athens.
      Day 02: Athens; full day Sarnoric tour. (Visit temple of Olympian Zeus, Hadrian’s arch and Acropolis, Syntagma and etc…
      Day 03: pick up the car, drive to Nafplio – visit Corinth, Myceane on the way, visit Epidavors, walk around Nafplio and enjoy the evening in Nafplio
      Day 04: Drive to Monemvasia, Gilthio, Sparti, Tripolis, Megalopoli (any suggestion where to stay overnight?)
      Day 05: Drive to Olympian Zeus, via Eliad and Achaia to Delphi. Overnight at Delphi.
      Day 06: Drive to Kalambaka. Stay overnight at Kalambaka.(any sightseeing suggestion along the way?)
      Day 07: Visit Meteora, Return to Athens via Trikala, Lamia, Thermopylae.
      Day 07: Athens – Santorini (Flying)
      Day 08: Santorini – Volcano? Hiking Fira to Oia, Hot Springs Boat Tour?
      Day 09: Santorini – Athens (fly back in the evening)
      Day 10: Athens (Shopping )
      Day 11: Leave Athens
      According to weather forecast, on the day 5, 6 and 7 will be sunny on Santorini. In that case, we will have to come back to Athens from Delphie and do the Kalambaka and Meteora trip after the Santorini trip.
      I still have some questions 
      Should we rent a car in Athens when we arrive at airport or at the hotel or book on line from Canada?
      Which area to stay in Athen to drive in and out easily from the city?
      Thank you in advance.

      greek islands from turkey

      Santorini Island Dec 3, 2014 at 10:19 PM

      hello all... i want to visit symi island and santorini in april from BODRUM or MARMARIS in turkey by ferry..
      i observed that though these islands are closer to turkey than athens. the approach from turkey is very difficult and very few options available via RHODES.
      from athens it is very long journey by blueboat cruise and only one ferry per day to santorini. [ i am aware of flights from athens to santorini but i want cheaper option]

      has anybody travelled from turkey to SYMI or SANTORINI please share your experience.

      thanks

    • BEST SEASON FOR MYKONOS AND SANTORINI

      Greece Nov 28, 2014 at 4:28 PM

      We plan to be in Greece in the second half of September next year (beginning 16 September). We will be first spending about 6-7 days visiting Athens, Olympia, Delphi etc and thereafter from the 24th to 30 September we would spend 3-4 days each in Mykonos and Santorini in that order. In Mykonos and Santorini, amongst other things we do, look forward to going in the water on the beaches. Weather wise it is good to do so or will the water become too cold for swimming? Should we reverse the sequence and first go to the islands and thereafter come to the mainland?
      TIA

      suggestion on 2 weeks in December in Greece

      Greece Nov 22, 2014 at 3:38 AM

      My husband and I will be coming on a 2 weeks (dec.3 to 17) visit to Greece in December. Our general plan is 2/3 days in Athens then rent a car and drive to interesting places/small city and visit 2 islands. I checked extended weather forecast for December in Athens and found that after December 10 there will be cloudy and thunder storm most of the days. It looks like we will be in 7days in good weather and 7days in somewhat rainy/cloudy weather. Please advise what to do/see in December. Thanks in advance.

    • Seaside Hotel/Apartment in Karfas?

      by acfink77 Online Now Jul 25, 2011 at 3:58 PM

      I am looking for a seaside hotel or apartment in Karfas. Anybody have any good recommendations?

      I gather from these forums that Karfas is a quiet seaside town with enough tavernas to occupy your evenings. Are there any other similar towns on the island of Chios? Any similar lodging recommendations in those towns?

      Many thanks.

      Hello,
      I will be coming by ferry to Chios from Cesme, Turkey. Does anyone know if you can bring across a rental car from Turkey?
      If not, was is the best and most affordable means of transportation? Car? Motorcycle? Taxi?
      I'll have two days there and I'd like to visit Mesta and Pyrgi. I'd also like to stay somewhere other than Chios town. Please advise.

      Coming to Chios Oct 23, 2010

      by Cruiseone2003 Online Now Oct 12, 2010 at 7:17 AM

      Hello, I'm arriving in Chios (The cruiseline spells it Khios) on 10/23 by cruise ship and only staying for the day. I've been reading the Chios Forum for things to see and do and didn't find an answer to my question so I decided to post them here.

      We are four persons, mid 40's, we won't have a car and will not rent a scooter. We'd like to go to a beach, swim and have some local food and beer; easy peasy right? Are there beaches in the town of Chios or nearby?

    • Stay in Chios town or other village on Chios

      by palioklima Online Now Jun 6, 2009 at 3:18 PM

      I will be with my bf in Chios from 18 Aug to 27 Aug. We like to stay in a place that is central and fun for night time, but not to noisy or commerical, and sitting out in the morning. Chios town seems not so pretty and a little commerical - not beautiful like other port towns (like Syros town, or Symi town). Kombos looks appealing and so does Mesta, but are they too quiet - no restaurants for night, etc, or would we need to drive to Chios town?

    • travel around Chios

      by aeleland Online Now Oct 13, 2008 at 7:34 AM

      My husband and I are traveling to Chios for one day, off a cruise ship in November. We are in our early 60's and well traveled (never been on a cruise before) We do not usually like group tours, so we thought of going off on our own. How do we get around the island to visit the villages? I am particularly interested in local arts, textiles, and folk traditions. Of course we both love local food.
      How do we hire a driver for the day? What villages do you think we should visit and where should we stop for a good local meal?
      Any suggestions welcomed.
