      We are planning to take a 4 day classical tour from Athens ( Epidaurus, Mycenae, Olympia, Delphi, Meteora). On the internet, one sees that there are many tour operators, each with equally good reviews. Could any fellow VT member share with us his/her knowledge or experience to help us decide which tour to go on.

      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.



      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?

      I think my question's quite similar to the last one posted so maybe we can compare notes.
      I'll be staying for one night in Corfu in August, on my way back from Albania. Does anyone know of any hotels that are nice and good value in the centre or (particularly) around the port area?
      The Konstantinoupolis is exactly the kind of place I'd like to stay but 102 euros for a single room sounds a bit expensive....
      Does anyone know of any others, or how to halve the price of the Konstantinoupolis?

      Corfu or Santorini?

      by Nitina Online Now Aug 3, 2007 at 1:21 PM


      Still a bit undecisive about whether to go to Corfu or Santorini. we will be going around 20th August. I will be going with my parents ( I am over 18) and both my parents are fun people and young hearted.

      I was told both islands are nice, corfu being very green and having really nice beaches but no idea about nightlife? and santorini having the most amazing views and compact centre

      Where would u suggest for a nice island experience?
      we like swimming, nice cafes, restaurants, lively atmosphere popular with young greeks and international people etc..

      has anyone been to these two islands and can recommend which one is better?

      Two questions, as I am intending to hire a car when I visit next month (to Arillas).

      How much is rental? Last year in Kefalonia an Atoz (tiny car) was E100 insured for 3 days (start of July). And does anyone have any recommendations for hire companies?

      Me and my husband are thinking of going to Corfu this summer. would you say June or end of August/beginning of September is better?
      we like hot weather but not too hot (anything below 35 is ok) and we would like to go swimming in the sea so hopefully the sea will be warm. We rather it wasn't a month which is too crowded with kids though.

      My other question is accomodation. We have never been to Corfu before and it would be nice to stay somewhere which has been recommmended by people. (preferably with a pool). We don't want to be too far from Corfu town as I assume that's where people go out at night?
