      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.

    • 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

      need some help in finding a guide to show our family around Nafplion, Mycenea and Epidaurus.
      We are arriving in August (I know, the heat) on board a cruise.
      Our time is limited 0700-1300 - but our children LOVE Greek mythology and we want to make the most of our visit.
      Cruise trips spend too much time at the shops - not enough time at the sites.
      family of 4 - 2 adults/2 kids
      Should we just hire a local taxi - but that's full of risks as well -- bit Iffy, huh

      Hello to All -

      My wife and I will be coming to the Nafplio area in late June by bus from Athens with nothing but a couple of backpacks and a tent. We are looking for a campsite that is close to Nafplio. Doesn't have to be big or anything special, just a place to set down our tent and sleep. We are planning on moving around a lot during the day and not being so much at the campground. I have read through some of the posts and see that Triton II has been recommended and a campground called Lefkas which I have been unable to locate. I was wondering if anyone else had any suggestions, and how easy it is to get from these campsites to Nafplio and other surrounding areas without a car. Thank you!!

      We will be visiting the area from April 1-11 and have just learned that the Greek holiday runs the week before and after Easter. Question is: in light of the Greek people vacationing in the area during this time, should we pre-book all of our stays throughout the Pelopponese? Other than pre-booking our Nafplio stay, we were going to make last minute bookings. I want to spend time in Monemvasia but have been informed that the minimum booking at Hotel Malvasia is 4 nights during Easter break. If we do stay there that long, what can we take in for day trips.

      Hello Wise Ones,
      Thank you for your assistance. May I now present my itinerary for your opinions?

      April 1 - Athens to Nafplio - by bus

      April 1,2,3,4 - 3 days/4 nights in Nafplio (hotel booked) - touring by bus

      April 5 - Rent Car in Nafplio - drive coast to Monemvasia, spend 1 night

      April 6 - Explore Monemvasia and Dirou Caves, drive north to Mystras, spend 1 night

      April 7 - Drive east to Koroni, Methoni and Pylos, spend 1 or 2 nights

      Drive North to Stemnitsa, Dimitsana, spend 1 or 2 nights

      I'm thinking of staying somewhere closer to AThens the last night so our drive isn't long/stressful. Any ideas?

      April 11th - Drive to Athens Airport, drop off rental car there. Flight leaves Athens at 1:30 pm, Sunday

      I didn't plan on booking accommodations anywhere 'til we get there (other than Nafplio) using a mobile phone.

      There will be 2 drivers to help with that task. Is this itinerary overdoing it?

      I appreciate all advice. Sincerely, Carol
