    • Help me - in need of a day party place?

      Agios Nikolaos 23 hours ago

      Hi all, I was wondering if you could help me. My friend is having her wedding in Crete at the end of the summer, we are staying in Agios Nikolaos and we would like to have a 'hen' party for her. We do not want anything 'tacky', a place that is sophisticated like Ocean Club, Blue Marlin, Nikki Beach - them sort of places. Is there anything like this around this area, we do not mind travelling. Thanks so much!

      Bus: Thessaloniki to Sofia

      Thessaloniki 18 hours ago

      Haven't posted it yet. Anything else I should add?

      My wife and I are going to be in Thessaloniki in late September and from there, we are heading to Sofia. I see that there is now train service between the two cities, but I think the bus still looks to be shorter and arrives earlier, which is favourable for us.

      I have a few questions about the bus: 1. Where exactly do you catch the bus? Wikitravel says 'You can catch this bus if you continue on an imaginary line at the end of Maria Luisa street. It meets in front of the "cafe" and just a few meters to the left of the entrance to the WC.' Is that correct?

      2. Generally, how is the bus travel on this line? Any idea on how many washroom stops it makes?

      3. We arrive in Thessaloniki four days before departing to Sofia. If we pick up tickets when we arrive, will there likely still be some available? Where do we purchase these tickets?

      Thanks in advance!

      Data plan for iPhone in Greece

      Greece Jul 9, 2014 at 4:49 PM

      I always get a local sim card whenever I travel. But have sometimes had to put up with some limitations. For example in Italy, we were only able to get one type of prepaid plan because we were tourists, and were not able to choose from a few different ones.

      I will be using the data plan extensively since we will be winging it for two weeks with a rental car, and will need to search for sites, hotels etc, and I have to have to access my emails 24/7. I have looked at the websites of the main providers, but none of them have proved helpful with package details and prices. Any help would be great.

      Will be landing in Athens, so I'm sure I can find any store once we're in the city, I don't need to get it from the airport.

      We thought to take a metro 'til end of red metro line "Elliniko" and hop on bus E22 to Vouliagmeni Lake. Is bus ticket same price anyways for I noticed that expressline goes straight from Syntagma to Vouliagmeni bus stop (which would be easyer with kids)? Do anybody know where to get timetables? ...And is that 24 hour metro ticket valid with trams, busses etc.?

      we are making progress, next issues.

      Greece Jun 25, 2014 at 9:54 AM

      have our flights and hotels booked.

      for the ferryboat between santorini and mykonos there seem to be several competing companies, each offering a variety of seat arrangements at varying costs. is one company any better than any other. and which seating option is best value - not interested in steerage class.

      there are multiple websites offering to sell tickets for the ferryboat. is there one preferred site or official site to make sure this is done correctly and with the right people. all the sites look so official.

      lastly, very close to renting a car in santorini. can anybody recommend a quality car rental outfit in mykonos?

      and yes i do appreciate all the help we have gotten. as k knows, our travelling companions may be very nice people but they are not easy. thanks.

    • 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.

      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.
