      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

      Santorini Island Dec 3, 2014 at 10:19 PM

      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.

      thanks

    • 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

      suggestion on 2 weeks in December in Greece

      Greece Nov 22, 2014 at 3:38 AM

      My husband and I will be coming on a 2 weeks (dec.3 to 17) visit to Greece in December. Our general plan is 2/3 days in Athens then rent a car and drive to interesting places/small city and visit 2 islands. I checked extended weather forecast for December in Athens and found that after December 10 there will be cloudy and thunder storm most of the days. It looks like we will be in 7days in good weather and 7days in somewhat rainy/cloudy weather. Please advise what to do/see in December. Thanks in advance.

      Road from Ioannina to Kalamaka

      I am coming to Ioannina at the end of January and I intend to travel to visit the Meteore. I heard that the tunnel under Katara is not open yet... does it mean that I have to go over Katara pass to reach Kalamaka? If so, is it likely to find snow on the road in this period? Would anybody suggest an alternative itinerary to reach the Meteore? Also I am looking for a good but cheap hotel in Ioannina for one night. I would like some suggestions. Thank you all. Massimo

      Is it possible to travel from Corfu to Lefkada or Kefalonia by ferry, or do you have to go via Igomenitsa or Patras (which is 8 hours.)?? I will only be in the Ionianns from th28th of Aug to the 31st. With such little time, do you have any suggestions of must-see places? I'm mostly intersted in snorkeling, beautiful beaches that aren't heavily populated with tourists, and traditional Island life. Are the sea caves as amazing as the pictures look? Thanks!
