    • Current situation with banks in Crete

      by crazymum Online Now Jun 29, 2015 at 1:16 AM

      My Son is departing for Crete next Sunday and as parents we're worried about the current currency situation. He does not have a credit card only a bank debit card. Which currency is preferred - is it still Euros or would US$ GB £ be a better option. If local people could keep me updated I would be much appreciated. Much has been heard about what is happening in Athens but how much is this directly affecting Crete. I note that the banks will be closed for at least a week - difficult to distinguish fact from fiction in the media

      Hoping someone can keep a worried mum up-dated. Please no generalised info - hard facts as to what is happening.
      Many thanks

      What to see and how to go ?

      by piano_007 Online Now Jun 9, 2015 at 9:48 AM

      I'm going to Crete for 9 days-(arrival july 3 th) .(Couple 65+) booked hotel via (Belgian)travel agency in Anissaras (Chrissy Amoudia). but we want to see some history ( + cathedral Heraklion, Knossos.....) We normally travel: or with public transport or with rental car. I found one daily bus to (9.00 am ) and from (1.45 h pm) Heraklion that stops at the hotel. So I think we'd better rent a car. Any suggestions? or are there more buses available ? Which places are also interesting ? (within 50 km).As I said we are 65+, I'm 67, my husband 70, we still want to travel and discover new places, but we do need a few days more to realise it. (both have back- and heart problems, but we still don't give up !) who wants to give an (ancient) couple a good advice ?

      Can anyone recommend a big sandy beach with a nice village feel not sprawled out, like village squares and tavernas overlooking the sea, we have been to crete many times and love georgioplois, but have heard this year they are doing major sewage repairs. Would love to find another place similar, we are both in our fifties and are young at heart but don't like mad house places.

    • Family of 4 in Crete for 7 nights

      Hi Guys,

      We are planning a trip to Europe in 2015, with a trip to Crete mid-September. We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids - 8 & 11). We will fly in from Athens and catch a ferry to Ios after 7 nights in Crete. I have a couple of questions:

      1. We will be using travel backpacks for luggage - are we ok to use public busses to get around from town to town to our accomodation or will we need to hire a car?
      2. Any suggestions for itinerary (we are keen to see major sites)
      3. Any suggestions for kids activities/family friendly restaurants etc.

      I appreciate any advice you have to any/all of the above questions. Thanks for taking the time to help.
