Hi, we are an older Aussie couple coming to Greece for the first time and hoping you can help with some itinreary ideas!!! We fly into Athens (from Rome) at 12.35pm on Mon 8 Sept and fly out of Athens (back to Rome) at 12.20pm on Thursday 18 September. So we have 9 nights to visit! We would like to see some highlights of Rome, the naval battle on Spetsis on Sat 13 Sept (and maybe visit Hydra), then travel around the Peloponnese. Any suggestions would be so much appreciated, thanks!!!
Where do i find a representation of the frieze from the temple of athena
I'am looking for the timetable for this church above, for sunday.
Do they do in English, or in French or any other language??
Is there a metro station that is near the hotel Central Athens Hotel in Athens?
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 seasick...am travelling with a toddler..so am weighing my options..
Appreciate your advice!
During our visit to Grecce, we want to visit Santorini. We will visit greece on Jun 14. Do we need to buy Ferry ticket from Athens to Santorini (Round Trip) earlier or these tickets are always available?
We have from June 1st until early evening June 5th to be in Athens. We have a Greek friend who has said it might be too long. What other side trips would be good to include. Maybe for 2 days?
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

We are flying into Athens and we have 2-3 days there before we go to Thessaloniki for a week.

Thinks it is difficult to find a nice hotel close to athen and close to the beach.
Price around 100 Euro per night
Lot of possibilities along the east coast, but what to choose from Marathon to Porto Rafti? Not too much south of Athen because of too far distance to airport.

Have you any ideas?
Have a nice sunday
