      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.

      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?

      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?
