      Ryainair flight from Athens

      Athens Oct 17, 2014 at 6:26 AM

      Hello everyone.
      My question is:
      If I purchase Ryanair tickets online, but don't select any checked baggage at this point, can I do this later, closer to the actual travel date? will it be more expensive?(I want to purchase tickets for april 2015).
      Is it cheaper to pay for checked bagagge now than in the airport?

      Thanks so much!

    • What to do in winter on a third visit to Athens?

      Athens Oct 10, 2014 at 8:30 AM

      My husband and I will be coming on a five day visit to Athens in December. Two days will be taken up with friends. What can we do, other than the marvelous tourist attractions we have already done twice? I would love to rent a car for a couple of days and do something wintery (apart from skiing!). Any ideas about activities in Athens and away?

    • taxi service (or transport option?) from piraeus port from/to hotel (intercontinental)

      Athens May 19, 2014 at 8:34 PM


      I am staying at athenatheum intercontinental..which is some distance away from syngrou fix station.
      We are travelling with a toddler and would like to seek advice on options.
      For my travel in June:
      I am intending to catch the early morning 7.20 blue star ferry from piraeus to naxos. (weekday morning)
      Is it easier to take a cab or ok to take metro early in the morning?

      We will have luggage and travelling with a child. how much will taxi cost?

      As for the return a few days later, .I will reach piraeus only at 2325hrs if I am taking blue star ferry.
      Is it safe to take any of the cabs at the port to the hotel? or shld I arrange for private taxi? any recommendation amd approximate cost for reference?

      The alternative would be to take the hellenic seaways which is faster and will reach piraeus at about 6pm on a weekday. I suppose it will be easier for me to catch the metro back to hotel? But I have heard that you may get travelling with a am weighing my options..

      Appreciate your advice!

    • One whole day and one evening in Athens-Help to create my itinerary

      Athens May 6, 2014 at 2:15 AM

      We are a family of 4 and we only have 1 whole day in athens on the way to Santorini and an evening on return and next day flying to Istanbul.
      I haven't create my own itinerary and from what I read and understand that mainly visitor start the holidays visiting the Acropolis early morning doing the walking tour starting at Acropolis subway station. Here I have a doubt where to start and to finish this tour: is this the right place to start by taking the metro or better go by taxi to the nearest entrance to the acropolis? My mother is of 73yrs and walk slowly.
      Which is the best exit door to find a taverna to have our early lunch? We would like to go to Plaka and Syntagma Square. We will stay in Cecil Hotel.
      Any more suggestions would be appreciated
      Thanks in advance for the advices
