      Best Way to Get from Bitola to Meteora

      Greece Aug 18, 2015 at 9:32 AM

      I will be in Bitola in October with two work colleagues. We will be all over Republic of Macedonia on our visit but I know these two guys will absolutely love Meteora and I would like to try to get there for two days / one night when we're in the area.
      From Bitola, what would you suggest as the best way to do this?
      I was thinking of taking a taxi from Bitola to the border, then a Greek taxi to Florina. From there, though ...

      I see a network of three buses as an option (risky, though, with timetables could add a lot of time and if you miss one you're stuck).
      Can I rent a car in Florina (which would be helpful once at Meteora)?
      Could I lengthen the taxi route once inside Greece to a town where I could rent a car?

      Since we have only two days, we'd have to avoid a long detour to, say, Thessaloniki, in order to make this happen. It would be a real treat for my companions, though, so if we can pull it off I'd like to give it a try.

      Thanks for your help.

      A few days in Milos

      Greece Aug 2, 2015 at 11:32 AM

      We plan to visit some Aegean islands in September. Can we see interesting rock formations and colors in Milos, staying there a few days and renting a car? We can take boat tours if there are any after the main season, but not take a boat for self-sailing.

      How many days should I plan? We think of going by ferry to Santorini, and probably end in Crete - where we always go.

      Arrange myself or use an agent?

      Greece Aug 30, 2015 at 8:18 AM

      We're just buying tickets to Greece (Aegean) for about two and a half weeks, from September 10th. Planning to visit Milos and Santorini, and then Crete which is our usual destination in Greece.

      We always arrange our trips ourselves, and never used a travel agent. I've been reading Matt Barrett's websites since I've got internet, maybe 1997, and never used his advice of arranging the trip through a travel agent. This time we have several islands with different transportation connections, is it a good idea of using an agent, maybe this time with the elections in the middle, and I don't know which strikes?

      We've been in Greece in the past at election times, and several strikes.

      Milos in October

      Greece Yesterday

      Milos will be our last destination before we return to Athens. Our whole trip will be four weeks, we'll probably get there from Santorini. Any suggestions in which village/town to stay? We'll rent a car, but we want to be in a quiet place, not far from tavernas for dinner.

      I hope that in this season we can have a boat around the island, I'm specially interested in geology. How many days should I plan? My original intention was to visit at first Milos and Santorini, and the rest of our time be in Crete. But we got a very good one way flight from Israel to Heraklion, so that's where we start.

      Is it possible to fly to Athens (from NYC), and transfer for flight to Heraklion, Crete? Not sure of carrier for Intl flights, but arrival times usually are between 9:00 and 10:00am. Some a bit later than that.

      I want to know .. does the same thing apply in Paros where you can just sort out accommodation at the port on arrival? That's the way we prefer to travel but I'd check. If so, does that also apply to most of the other islands in the Cyclades group?

      We've loved the beaches of Vari and Galissos in Syros .. any recommendations for beaches in Paros that we should aim for?

      Appreciate your help ... LOVE this site!!
