    • Antique furniture

      Rhodes (Island) Oct 1, 2015 at 1:34 PM

      I am looking to furnish a house in Rhodes with antique furniture. What I am looking for is traditional Greek island wooden sofas, rush taverna chairs, and old wooden table, wardrobe etc. Does anyone know if there are markets for this kind of thing, or second hand furniture and antique shops? Thank you.


      Mykonos Sep 11, 2015 at 10:00 PM

      We are to travel by ferry from Mykonos to Santorini in end sep 15. The two options are Seajet (Superjet) (0940-1140) and Hellenic Seaways, (Highspeed 4) (1440-1715). So as to spend an additional evening in Santorini, we would prefer the earlier Seajet Ferry. However, the internet is full of negative reviews about this. We are not so much bothered about the sea sickness issue which may have a greater effect on the Superjet being a smaller vessel. However, the issue of dependability and punctuality etc is of major concern to us. Are Superjets really all that bad or are they merely victims of bad publicity launched by competitors. I seek the help of fellow VT members to help solve the dilemma.

    • Greek itinerary

      Greece Sep 21, 2015 at 12:53 PM

      We are 60ish couple and like slow travel. This will be our first time in Greece, 4.5 weeks in spring 2016. We will spend a few days in Athens and then the rest of the time in the Peloponnese. We like to hike and also explore history/art/food/nature. We usually rent an apartment or house for 1-2 weeks and then do day trips from there.

      My question is where to situate ourselves on the Peloponnese and what islands to go to if any? I was looking at Poros, Elafonissos, or????? I thought easier to get to an island closer to the Peloponnese rather than try to get to Santorini? Suggestions would be great! We will rent a car.

      We've been there twice, driving down the mountain from the west. We saw the beginning of the road going north to Zakros, it wasn't asphalted. Do you know this road? A non asphalted and not well kept road can be broken up, especially when it crosses creeks.


      Of course we'll ask at the place, but we'll get the replies of people experienced in driving this road, and maybe with jeeps.

    • Bus vs. Car Rental

      Athens Oct 1, 2015 at 9:32 AM

      We will be traveling to Santorini Greece in July, 2016. I've been doing a lot of reading on using the bus system vs. renting a car and would like some guidance. I hear the buses are at full capacity during this very high tourist season, but I also hear that finding parking can be very difficult. We want to see many of the usual sights in Santorini including the beaches, ancient sights, old churches, etc. What do you suggest for transportation while we're there? If anyone recommends a rental car, do you have any tips for how to find parking at the various destinations? When we traveled to Italy, I found that we could reserve and pay ahead for parking in their parking garages in Rome where available parking is very rare. Thanks for your help!

We will be traveling mid July 2016. The next available flight to Santorini is 1:15 pm.

      Map of Crete

      Greece Sep 12, 2015 at 7:17 AM

      I've got a 1:150,000 Marco Polo map of Crete, I don't find a date on it - but the label of the store is from 2011.Should I look for other or newer maps? We're going to drive at least a week in the west side.

      I remember that there were several roads on the map that hadn't been built yet, only planned (I'm not going to look for them, I just remember that we got to places where we couldn't go on).
