      Data plan for iPhone in Greece

      Greece 10 hours ago

      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.

      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.

      Hi,
      We are hoping to travel by bus from Nafplio to Porto Heli, changing bus in Kranidi I think, to arrive at Porto Heli during the afternoon of Saturday 13 September.
      Then we are hoping to take a ferry to Spetses to see the recreated naval battle there that evening and stay Sat, Sun and Mon nights on Spetses.
      On Tuesday we are hoping to catch a ferry to Hydra, spend some time looking around, and then ferry to Piraeus to over night in Athens before flying out.
      Please can someone tell me is this is possible within the timeframe and a reasonable schedule? Any travel tips at all would be very much appreciated! Thanks - Sheena

      Three Days From Athens

      Greece Jul 3, 2014 at 2:38 AM

      Hi all, We have been in Greece already for 24 days.

      Before we head home we have five days between flights into and out of Athens.

      We would like to see Delphi and are open, of course, to visiting other archaeological sites, but feel at this point (24 days in, we've seen a lot of archaeological sites already) but are less well-versed in other things we might see and do before we head home.

      We figure the last two nights will be in Athens, so really we're wondering about some suggestions on a three-day spin out of and back to Athens by car. All of the books I have feature the islands so not much help elsewhere.

      Thanks as always.

      I've been told that the best place to stay in Heraklion is on the 25th August Street. Can someone recommend some hotels there? Or would I find better hotels elsewhere? My budget is approx. Euro150 per night.
      In Chania I've been told that we should be staying on the harbour... is it a good suggestion? Budget remains the same, i.e. Euro150 per night.
