      Tour trips to Elafonisi in April?

      Elafonisi Apr 16, 2015 at 2:13 AM

      Does any tour organiser make trips from Chania to Elafonisi in last week of April? I suppose that if we use the municipal buses, we'd have to spend the entire day in Elafonisi. Just a couple of hours is enough there (we just want to see the place and walk around the beach, not sunbath).
      Or is the only way to rent a car.

      My wife and I arrive at Athens by midday and hope to be in our hotel (Athens Gate) which is near the acropolis metro station, by about 3 PM in mid september. We plan to spend the next full day visiting various important places of tourist interest in Athens. However, we would like to explore areas nearby to our hotel in the few hours that we have on the day of our arrival.
      1.any suggestions for what to do for the evening of the day of our arrival?
      2. Any nearby market place that we can just walk around and possibly pick up something to eat.
      3 How does one get to the Strathmos Bairaktari Café Resturant, at 63 Mitropoleos, Dimopratirious Square. (Etaomoe Mhaipaktaph). (picked up by reading the reviews of fellow travelers).
      4. Would welcome any other suggestions for cheap and authentic Greek food.

      mens silver bracelets...

      Santorini Island Apr 17, 2015 at 6:34 AM

      hi , its driving me crazy- i bought an amazing mens click on bracelet from santorini back in 2005, and sadly lost that bracelet..
      for the life of me cannot recall the shop- im assuming it was in Fira..as we were based around there for the week.
      all i recall is a grumpy shop owner,his fat tummy hanging out-but amazing jewellery and crafts.
      the bracelet was really unique, lots of detail design in it.
      if anyone has names and websites for some jewellery stores on santorini plz let me know.

      thx.

      Well I need to get to Istanbul to meet my fiance's side of the family, but I can only get a ticket to Alexandroupolis,so I was wondering how will I get from the airport to Istanbul and has anyone taken the route before? Are there fixed timetables for the buses, how long will the ride be and when I get to the Turkish border what happens? Do I need a VISA to enter or will the bus driver just cruise through lol? Also once I'm done at getting through customs(at Alex... airport) where shall I go to catch a bus? Is it close by, can one walk or have to catch a taxi to the station? And what is the name of the station lol? (I know this is a lot of info needed, but I'm terrible at traveling, lets hope I don't forget my passsport)

      3. Which lounge would offer the fastest exit? Does it matter in terms of time spent in exit?
      4. Needless to say we do plan to go on the deck while approaching Santorini. For this activity is there anything to chose between the lounges?

      Athens Apr 15, 2015 at 7:27 AM

      Planning a route from Athens to Lavrio, however, I'd like to stop at Sounion and spend a few hours there on the way.
      I plan to use buses. I figured out the bus to Sounion is every other hour from Egypt Square. What I cannot figure out is what to take from Sounion to Lavrio, and how often is there a bus going this way.
      Also, do I buy a ticket to Lavrio, and use it to Sounion and then to Lavrio? Or two tickets (one for each leg)?

      Thanks,
