      I am spending 8 day in Santorini in September 2014. I'd like to hear what others did on their stays. I'm breaking the trip into three segments so I can experience the island from different perspectives - 3 days in Fira, 2 days in Imerovigli and 3 days in Oia. What were the 2-3 most memorable things that you did in Santorini - things that I should not miss? Thanks!!

    • Cable car or walk?

      Santorini Island Mar 28, 2014 at 8:45 AM

      We will be on a cruise in June and have 11 hours in port. Rather than taking a cruise line score excursion I am thinking of touring on my own. In addition to the usual tendering delay, it appears that there is also a potential, long delay in using the cable car in Fira. Several posts mention stairs to climb. How treachurous is it? Approximate distance? How long for a person used to walking long distances though not climbing for long distances. Recommendations?

      From Athens to Mykonos

      Mykonos Yesterday

      Hi all, I need to be in Mykonos at the 5th or 6th of June, coming in from Amsterdam. Off course I can book straight flight from Amsterdam to Mykonos, but I think it saves money to fly to Athens and go from Athens to Mykonos, by boat or plane. What I checked till now is that there is only one flight a day from Athens to Mykonos and departs early in the morning. Now does somebody know if it is easy to purchase a ticket for the ferry from Athens to Mykonos and what are the time schedules and where can I buy these tickets. Thank you for any reply

      Best Route?

      Santorini Island Apr 17, 2014 at 3:40 AM

      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

      I am looking for accommodation (hostel style) on Ios in a couple of weeks and being a complete idiot I forgot to book any accommodation. I am looking for about a week starting from 14th or 15th August. I am an Aussie guy 25 y.o. from Perth who is very easy to get along with. Any suggestions or people who have a spare bed would be much appreciated.

      If Ios is out of the question can anyone suggest another greek island that will provide a similar experience as Ios?

      Cheers in advance

    • Crete to Ios transportation?

      by irenegirl Online Now Mar 29, 2006 at 9:49 PM

      Hi everyone. We're going to be in Greece for a month May 2006. In our excitement over booking hotels, we forgot to make sure we could travel between our chosen islands and are having trouble connecting buses and ferries.

      1. Has anyone travelled in may ( may 18th for us)from Crete to Ios? I found a KTEL bus to take us to Heraklion for 8am, then a Blue star ferry 8:15am to Piraeus, and later to Ios to arrive at 1:05am on the 19th. I'm worried about having only 15 minutes in Heraklion before the ferry leaves... is this possible to do? How much in advance do we need to be at the ferry terminal? Is there a better, more direct option? I'd be grateful for any advice on this!!
