      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.

    • Off Season Greece -

      Greece Dec 26, 2014 at 2:33 AM

      I'm planning a trip to Greece at the end of February/beginning of March. I'm aware that it's most definitely not tourist season but unfortunately there's a reason for the timing. I've heard different things about some of the islands being "closed" but I'm not necessarily worried about that because people still have to live. Any suggestions on what/where to see? I'm definitely going to Athens/Santorini/Mykonos - just not sure in what order. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks 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.

      We're planing a 4 day visit to Lesvos in late July. Considering how huge the island is I can't make sure about what region to accomidate.
      Would Plomari be an odd choice as it is way too far from Molyvos-Petra region or Sappho's region? Would it be any fun to spend the nights in Plomari? Any advice would be ace! Thanks in advance.

      Hi, I have read old reviews (c.2010) that refer to skala kallonis having lots of stray dogs and cats. Is this still the case as none of the recent reviews mention it.
      Also, some reviews say this resort is really quiet and a bit grubby on the beach etc and others say it is lovely golden sands. What is it really like?

    • Last Minute Questions

      by ReluctantTourist Online Now Jul 10, 2009 at 3:58 AM

      Hi all. Last minute questions (of a basic nature) due to last minute booking of holiday to Petra!

      1. We are 3 adults, 1 child. How much can we expect to pay for lunch and dinner(child normally eats at least as much as an adult) and how expensive are the drinks?

      2. How are the buses regarding regularity, coverage and cost? Would like to travel a bit, but not enough to warrant hiring a car.

      We'll be there in 2 weeks time, so if anyone could answer, that'd be great.

      Cheers!

      We will be going to Petra, in two weeks time 29th May. As the euro is poor at the moment here in England, would it be better to wait until we get to Lesvos to change cash, or would we get a better rate using ATM machines. We have the type of debit card that does not charge for transactions abroad. Hope someone can advise us, thankyou. J.A. COX.

      One of my favorite travel interests is snorkeling. I don't suppose it
      will be enough time during my Lesvos visit to organize some diving expedition but for sure I would like snorkeling a bit ... SO maybe you know some Lesvos beaches where I could observe interesting underwater landscape and sea creatures? Probably My hotel will be in Petra.

      thanx for ASAP answer because my holidays will start already from 28. August.

We will be paying for car hire by credit card. £1,000 spending money is for two people for all food and drinks and any other expenses. We do not like to visit night clubs and a night out consists of a meal and a few drinks. We like traditional bars rather than touristy English type bars. Can anyone advise if this will be enough cash to take.
