    • Clothes for the larger lady

      Athens Nov 24, 2014 at 12:23 AM

      Are there any clothes shops in Athens catering for larger ladies?


      Greece Dec 2, 2014 at 7:37 AM

      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.
      Thanks in advance

      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?

      Greece Nov 22, 2014 at 3:38 AM

      My husband and I will be coming on a 2 weeks (dec.3 to 17) visit to Greece in December. Our general plan is 2/3 days in Athens then rent a car and drive to interesting places/small city and visit 2 islands. I checked extended weather forecast for December in Athens and found that after December 10 there will be cloudy and thunder storm most of the days. It looks like we will be in 7days in good weather and 7days in somewhat rainy/cloudy weather. Please advise what to do/see in December. Thanks in advance.

    • 2 weeks Cheap Non-resort hotel accommodation & travel advice to Paxoi sept 2007

      by kirkmeister Online Now Mar 26, 2007 at 8:35 AM

      My boyfriend and I are trying to plan a trip to paxoi for the last two weeks in september but the flight tims from london gatwick and ferrys seem to be inpracticable times. Does anyone have any advice on the best way to do this?

      Also we would really like to stay in a traditional building or in our own one double bedroom villa near a beach but not as part of a resort. Maybe we are being unrealistic, but so far costs have been around £800 for 2 weeks at this time. Does anyone know of somewhere cheaper and suitable to stay?

      We also plan to try and get around the island a bit. Can you easily hire bikes?

      All help really appreciated - many thanks

      My boyfriend and I will be going to Paxi for the first time in a few weeks. Can anyone recommend 'must see' places/things to do please? From what I've seen on the internet, the island looks beautiful. We'll be staying at the Marmari Stone Houses in Loggos... has anyone stayed there before?

      Flying from Manchester, UK into Corfu... then its the boat over to Paxi. Hopefully a large boat, so I can't feel the waves and get sea-sick! :o)

      Any help/advice would be gratefully appreciated.

      How are Tourist Numbers in Greece at the Moment?

      by XenosUK Online Now Jun 5, 2004 at 2:01 AM

      I had already heard that numbers are down so far this season, but I've just seen a last minute deal in the Saturday Times for my favourite Greek island of Paxos, which is offering almost 40% off the original price. It's for the last week in June, which is usually quite a popular time to visit Greece, so things must be worse than I thought. Has anybody in Greece at the moment, or who's just got back noticed it being particularly quiet? It sounds like the Games have put a lot of people off visiting Greece this year and this is probaby the right time to grab a bargain holiday.

      Eritha Apartments - Lakka

      by Elenitsa Online Now May 20, 2004 at 3:47 AM

      Off to Paxos next week (YAY) - have booked a package holiday for a change. Just wondering - anyone know what the Eritha Apartments are like??? (Got to be honest - providing they're clean and have a bed and somewhere to sit out - I'll be content!) Also is the Rosa di Paxoi any good?? It's both mine and my partner's birthdays while we're away and I've sort of earmarked this as "birthday night out meal". (Finally figured where to post this correctly!!)
