I am looking for an apartment to rent in Rafina, Greece. I only need a small apartment for one person, with a small equiped kitchen. For 3 weeks in July. Something nice and affordable. thank you.
We're returning to Greece in September to revisit Mykonos (3 days) and Santorini (3 days), and also to visit Naxos (three full days) and Koufonisia for the first time. We're looking for recommendations for relatively reasonable ($100 or so) accommodations for Mykonos, Naxos and Koufonisia. Of course we'd like a view if possible, and we're more interested in small family owned hotels or B&B's rather than any posh hotels. We really enjoy talking with the locals and meeting other travelers, which seems more likely in that type of accommodation.
Also, has anyone ever been to Koufonisia? We wanted to stay on one of the really small islands to just chill out for several days, but I'm getting the feeling that it's so small that we may not want to stay for the 6 days we allotted? Any advice? And I understand that you can walk to most of the beaches, but would there be any chairs or umbrellas to rent there? We're in our 70's, and the idea of slugging blankets or chairs and snacks for a mile or so does not appeal to me. Having had two knee replacements, I have real trouble getting up and down from the ground, so chairs are really a concern for me. I'm not looking for luxury, just any kind of chair would do. Is there such a thing as a taxi there if we wanted to schlep a bunch of stuff to the beach?
So, if anyone has a feeling for whether we should spend more time on Naxos (only planned three full days) and less on Koufonisia, please speak up.
Hi, we (Husband and Wife) are planning to visit Greece in this summer (Jun 14). I will reach Athens at 1645 hrs. My ferry to Santorini is at 2100 on the same day. After checking out from Airport will it be possible for us to visit Acropolis and then moving towards the Piraeus Port?
Is there any place near Acropolis where i can keep my luggage?
We are planning 8 nights in Crete. We are planning to hire a car so will have transport.
I would like to split the island into 2 parts - 4 nights in each as I prefer not to move Accommodation more than that.

Can anyone suggest (a) which 2 areas to stay (Chania and Heraklion?) of the 4 main districts?
I would love your suggestions on the best beaches and restaurants and things to do please
Hi All, We will be in Mykonos for 3 nights in July. Want to spend the days on the beach and enjoy the nightlife of an evening. Love good food (not touristy places if they are available in Mykonos?)

Hi There. We will be ready to depart Istanbul on Sunday 6th July and have 17 nights to spend in the Greek Islands. We have decided upon Santorini, Crete and Mykonos for a mix of Food, Culture, Beaches and nightlife. (probably split 6 nights, 6 nights and 5 nights to allow time to soak up each island)
I am looking for advise on the best route / order to visit these islands - do i need to go from Istanbul to Athens and start the ferries from there? Or can i fly direct from Istanbul to the first island?
Also, does anyone have a suggestion for the most effective route to take between these 3 islands?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

My husband and I are going to Halkidiki this may.
We want to travel from Thessaloniki to Meteora by bus or train. There stay for a night and in the morning visit the monasteries. The same day (in the evening) we want to get to Olympus, Refuge A.
I found such a useful bus schedule http://www.visitmeteora.travel/en/getting-to-meteora/getting-to-meteora-by-bus but still have some questions.
I guess the best way is to get from Kalampaka to Trikala, there take a bus Trikala - Thessaloniki. Does it stop at Litochoro? And where can I find bus numbers, routes and stops?
Does anyone have any advice?

We are a retired couple who arrive Athens Tuesday 7th October. We have 4 nights booked Athens then want to spend five to six nights on 3 to 4 islands with Santorini being a must the others we are open to suggestions. We prefer not to have to back track to Athens until we fly out on Wednesday 12 November. We are in our mid 60's and like quiet country style we are not party animals. Looking forward to your response many thanks Lucia and Steve Williamson.
I can say "Giraffe" in greek, is that as well as some rough spanish and fluency in English and French, enough to get through airports, trainstations, hotels and tourist centers between Athens and Corinth?
