    • Ano Koufonisia - Has anyone been there?

      Greece 1 hours ago

      We're returning to Greece in September to revisit Mykonos (3 days) and Santorini (3 days), and also to visit Naxos (three full days) and Koufonisia for the first time. We're looking for recommendations for relatively reasonable ($100 or so) accommodations for Mykonos, Naxos and Koufonisia. Of course we'd like a view if possible, and we're more interested in small family owned hotels or B&B's rather than any posh hotels. We really enjoy talking with the locals and meeting other travelers, which seems more likely in that type of accommodation.

      Also, has anyone ever been to Koufonisia? We wanted to stay on one of the really small islands to just chill out for several days, but I'm getting the feeling that it's so small that we may not want to stay for the 6 days we allotted? Any advice? And I understand that you can walk to most of the beaches, but would there be any chairs or umbrellas to rent there? We're in our 70's, and the idea of slugging blankets or chairs and snacks for a mile or so does not appeal to me. Having had two knee replacements, I have real trouble getting up and down from the ground, so chairs are really a concern for me. I'm not looking for luxury, just any kind of chair would do. Is there such a thing as a taxi there if we wanted to schlep a bunch of stuff to the beach?

      So, if anyone has a feeling for whether we should spend more time on Naxos (only planned three full days) and less on Koufonisia, please speak up.

      transportation

      Rhodes (Island) Apr 2, 2014 at 8:12 PM

      We plan a family reunion meeting in Faliraki, Rhodes (12-14 persons, 3 babies). I have several questions regarding transportation:
      1) Is there a taxi service from the airport to Faliraki (Ladico Beach) and how much it ca cost
      2) Is there a service of hiring a van/ minivan with driver for a day trip around the island and how much it may cost?
      3) taxi service cost from Faliraki to Rhodes old city: does it operate on late nights?

      Thanks - HA

      Meteora - Litochoro by bus

      Greece Apr 16, 2014 at 12:07 AM

      Hi there!
      My husband and I are going to Halkidiki this may.
      We want to travel from Thessaloniki to Meteora by bus or train. There stay for a night and in the morning visit the monasteries. The same day (in the evening) we want to get to Olympus, Refuge A.
      I found such a useful bus schedule http://www.visitmeteora.travel/en/getting-to-meteora/getting-to-meteora-by-bus but still have some questions.
      I guess the best way is to get from Kalampaka to Trikala, there take a bus Trikala - Thessaloniki. Does it stop at Litochoro? And where can I find bus numbers, routes and stops?
      Does anyone have any advice?

      Ferries: 48hr rolling strikes still? Days of operation?

      Thessaloniki Apr 6, 2014 at 1:40 AM

      Hoping to catch a ferry from Thessaloniki or Kavala to Lesvos on Sunday, April 13. From my calculations, that Sunday would be a day that the ferries DO run... But I wouldn't bet the price of a hostel stay for 2 on it! :) It is unmercifully difficult to find information about options and timetables, etc, even when one goes into the ferry office at the port of Thessaloniki, which I did--they said to call back on Friday but we caught a bus to Toroni instead. Trying to decide when to head back up...

      Anybody have any insight into the murky depths that surround the ferry situation?

      Many thanks in advance,

      .A.
