      Does anyone know where can we find the timetables that will enable travellers to know which bus to catch to make connections at Corinth? The Ktel site is not easy

    • Couple Fira or Oia church questions

      Santorini Island Jul 14, 2015 at 12:47 PM

      I am driving myself crazy trying to figure out where certain churches are located.  I found the site "Greeka" and a guide to 9 churches in Santorini, but I'm trying to get more specific information on just where these churches are.  I've tried to attach a picture of one that really interests me that's in Firostefani.  I know Firostefani isn't that big, but I'm not great on finding things, so need some extra help!  Can you drive to this church (we're renting a quad bike) or must you drive close and then walk?

      Also, I ran across an article that provides GPS coordinates (which I can't understand or get to work) to a church that's supposedly in Oia, but I'm thinking it's really Fira, as it mentions "Gold Street."  Isn't that in Fira?  It is a church (or maybe two) with salmon belltower and 2 blue domes.  The person is standing in front of a gate to (I suppose) a hotel or maybe just a way to get downhill to the church.  She says to duck into the alley beside the Minerali jewelry store.  Anyone know where this might be?  The GPS coordinates start with 36 degrees north and 25 degrees east, which indicates further to me that it's somewhere in Fira - but the numbers aren't in good enough shape for me to determine the rest and enter it into Google Earth..  

      Also, this may be same church, but I read that there 's a really nice blue domed church with 3 bells in Fira, near Mama Thira's.  Can anyone give me more information on that?  Looks like the website where I found that is "theplanetd"under photography guide for Santorini.

      One more question: I've used Google Maps and less so viamichelin to plot routes on Santorini.  Are those times fairly reliable, even if I'm going to some of the lesser tourist-traveled places like Mesa Gonia, Pirgos and Megalochori?

      Thankyou & Efharisto tor anyone who can answer my questions!

      IMPORTANT read about RED BEACH!

      Santorini Island Jul 3, 2015 at 12:49 AM

      IMPIS (Institute for the Study and Monitoring of Santorini Volcano) has sent a letter to the members of the Hotel Association Santorini. They want to draw everyone's attention of the status of Red Beach in Akrotiri:

      "We would like to inform you and ask you to inform clients of this situation, and that access to the beach is extremely dangerous due to landslides, to avoid any accident with incalculable consequences for the island" They ask the members of the Hotel Association to contact the authorities and to take the nessesary steps to protect visitors from the enormous consequences that will occur in an accident due to a possible landslide.

      The authorities have put up signs at the red beach but tourists does not respect these and still walk down. Very soon they will need to put a fence!

      Renting a Cabrio in Athens

Can someone suggest a reliable local car rental company, which has some sort of selection of cabrios? Does it make sense to rent a car in the city rather than in the airport, or prices are the same?
