      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

      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.

    • 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

    • Drive from Athens airport to Delphi, then Meteora, then Athens Airport

      by floridaru Online Now Aug 13, 2012 at 7:59 PM

      Hi everyone,

      We are going to Greece 08/31 (arrive 9am)- 09/07 (leave at 11am) and we want to drive to Delphi from the airport, then to Meteora from there and then back to Athens to visit acropolis. Do any of you know how long/safe these drives are (Airport to Delphi, Delphi to Meteora, and Meteora to Airport). I'm also a little worried about driving at night if the roads are dangerous mountain roads :) Also would 1 night in Delphi and 1 night in Meteora be enough to at least see a couple of the main areas? I know more time would be much better but we don't have the time available. We are going to Santorini for 2 nights so we don't have too much time left. We might drop Meteora but we don't know when/if we will ever be back to Greece so we would really, really, love to see that beautiful place. Also, do I need a special driving license to rent a car there?
      Thank you everyone for your help :)

      How to adopt a kitten from Delphi???

      by Cho-Cho Online Now Nov 13, 2011 at 6:50 PM

      I visited Delphi a couple of weeks ago - I had a great time. I know this sounds crazy, but I met the cutest kitten i would love to take home to live a long and healthy life in California. I have to go back to Athens in a couple of weeks so I was wondering if anyone has ever done anything like this. I know you need to have a vet check them out a month before you come to the US (which would be a challenge).

      I know this sounds crazy, but I thought I would try. Does anyone take care of them or feed them right now? It would be great to help this kitten that was so friendly. Thanks!

      Delphi - Olympia- Athens

      by samitbabu Online Now Jun 21, 2010 at 1:52 AM

      I would be travelling from Athens to Delphi and halting at delphi for the night.
      The next day I have a late evening ferry to catch from Athens -Piraeus.

      My question is :
      Is it possible to start from delphi and go to Olympia , halt there for a couple of hours and be back in time ( around 8 pm) to Piraeus?
      if so:
      1. Is it possible to do this by Buses or do we need to hire a cab for this.
      2.How much is the travel time from delphi to Olympia and again from Olympia to Athens in both these modes of transport?

      All suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    • Cost for Guide in Delphi?

      Hi,

      I am wondering how much a private tour guide for the ruins at Delphi should cost. I am considering booking a private two-day tour from Athens and they are offering a tour guide for Delphi (who can come inside the site) for an additional 100Euros. Is that a standard price? It seems a bit high to me. Any info would be appreciated!

      And what about ticketing? From another post at the Athens forum I have learned that you can't by tickets in advance, so I will be at the bus terminal around half (?) an hour prior to departure. Can you already by a roundtrip ticket in Athens, or is it again only sold in Delphi?
