    • How do you like Arillas?

      Arillas Mar 23, 2015 at 2:01 PM

      My family and I are thinking about spending one week to ten days in Arillas in late June. None of us have ever been to Greece, and we are just seeking a beautiful place to relax, play with our kids (ages 8 and 5), be on the beach, go to some nice restaurants, and also discover the area around Arillas. Could you tell me what you thought of your vacation in Arillas? Could you also tell me what kinds of things one can do in and around Arillas? Are there nice places or villages to visit nearby? I would be grateful for any and all advice and thoughts. How does Arillas compare to the rest of Corfu and vacationing on other Greek islands? Thanks for your help!

    • Help choosing a village?!

      Rhodes (Island) Feb 28, 2015 at 4:10 AM

      Hi All,

      My partner and I will be visiting Rhodes for just over 2 weeks towards the end of May and are struggling to find the best place to stay.

      We will be hiring a car and planning on exploring to find secluded more intimate beaches but love the history and hustle and bustle of the old town. We want to stay clear of the new town but since we will have a car to park are concerened about booking to stay in the old town.

      We were thinking about villages just outside of the old town so we can travel in in the afternoon/evenings. Does anyone have any suggestions of alternative ideas?

      We aren't big fans of built up resorts and ideally want to stay in a traditional but nice b&b??

      No amount of research seems to answer our questions :{

      Thanks in advanced
      Lauren :)

    • PLAN FOR TWO NIGHTS AND ONE DAY IN ATHENS

      Greece Mar 19, 2015 at 9:58 PM

      Hi, we, a middle aged couple are planning to visit Athens on our way to Santorini and Mykonos. We arrive one afternoon, have complete day two in Athens and will depart for Santorini on day three. On our return again we arrive one afternoon and will have a complete evening to spend in Athens. Could anyone suggest an itinerary for our time. Specifically, I would like to know:-
      1. Is it worth taking an evening / night tour of Athens?.
      2. Can we take a walking tour in the Day.
      3. Is there a free walking tour. If yes the timings please.
      3. If we have done the above, what would be left to do on the second evening.
      4. Suggestions for good tours are welcome. We would not wish to have exclusive tours but would like to join other groups.
      Thanks in advance.

      Is there a bus that goes past this the Lakitira Suites hotel from the airport?

      The hotel appears to be 4km west of Kardamena, not at Kardamena as shown by Google maps. This is a link of the possible routes. It may just be easier to hire a taxi, but I was hoping to master the public transport.

    • GREEK ISLAND HOPPING - JULY-SEPT 2015

      Greece Yesterday

      Hey there,

      Firstly - LOVE this VT Forum - I always receive so much useful info...

      My husband and I plan to island hop through the Cyclades, Greek Islands from late July - mid-September 2015.
      We don't like to plan or book ahead, preferring to just take each day as it comes.

      1) is it possible to just turn up to an island off the ferry and get accommodation at that time of year?

      2) are there any recommendations of "must see" islands, other than Santorini and Mykonos?

      Thanks in advance

      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

      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

      We will be landing in Athens @ 6:00 pm the night before Good Friday.

Can we see all the sights using public transport (Easter Weekend)? If this is doable, then we will rent a car after our four days in Nafplio to continue our exploration of the Peloponnese.
