      Data plan for iPhone in Greece

      Greece Jul 9, 2014 at 4:49 PM

      I always get a local sim card whenever I travel. But have sometimes had to put up with some limitations. For example in Italy, we were only able to get one type of prepaid plan because we were tourists, and were not able to choose from a few different ones.

      I will be using the data plan extensively since we will be winging it for two weeks with a rental car, and will need to search for sites, hotels etc, and I have to have to access my emails 24/7. I have looked at the websites of the main providers, but none of them have proved helpful with package details and prices. Any help would be great.

      Will be landing in Athens, so I'm sure I can find any store once we're in the city, I don't need to get it from the airport.

      have our flights and hotels booked.

      for the ferryboat between santorini and mykonos there seem to be several competing companies, each offering a variety of seat arrangements at varying costs. is one company any better than any other. and which seating option is best value - not interested in steerage class.

      there are multiple websites offering to sell tickets for the ferryboat. is there one preferred site or official site to make sure this is done correctly and with the right people. all the sites look so official.

      lastly, very close to renting a car in santorini. can anybody recommend a quality car rental outfit in mykonos?

      and yes i do appreciate all the help we have gotten. as k knows, our travelling companions may be very nice people but they are not easy. thanks.

      Three Days From Athens

      Greece Jul 3, 2014 at 2:38 AM

      Hi all, We have been in Greece already for 24 days.

      Before we head home we have five days between flights into and out of Athens.

      We would like to see Delphi and are open, of course, to visiting other archaeological sites, but feel at this point (24 days in, we've seen a lot of archaeological sites already) but are less well-versed in other things we might see and do before we head home.

      We figure the last two nights will be in Athens, so really we're wondering about some suggestions on a three-day spin out of and back to Athens by car. All of the books I have feature the islands so not much help elsewhere.

      Thanks as always.

      We'll come to Piraeus in the afternoon (after a very long flight!) Since we'll be tired from jet lag, we thought we could spend a relaxing afternoon, perhaps rest in the hotel by the port, have a meal, etc.

      Any suggestions for restaurants nearby, place to take a stroll, etc. in the evening? We leave very early the next morning on a ferry to Santorini, so we thought the night in Pireaus would be best.

There is plenty of info on the metro etc but not much about driving your own car and a detailed route to take. Does anyone know the best and quickest route? we will also be towing a boat.
      We will be catching the ferry to Rhodes which I believe sails from Gate E1 at Piraeus port. When I have zoomed in on the map of Piraeus port it hasnt got much detail of the direction we will be coming in from. I have read somewhere about a new tunnel but typically cant find the site now.
      I would be grateful for any help. We arrive in Patras April 24th 2011 so not long to go.
