      Relaxing, quiet,

      Crete Island Jan 27, 2016 at 4:23 AM

      We're two active, mid 50's who like a relaxing holiday is small, local places by the sea. Crete is our plan for 2016. Ideally, somewhere with some bars and restaurants and a lack of nightclubs! We plan to travel in September, and go self catering if possible. We're not high maintenance, so long as the place is clean, comfortable and close to amenities, we're good to go. We like to walk, cycle, use local transport and generally explore. We've had a couple of suggestions, Sissi being one. Most of the reviews I read, though, are quite a few years old. Anyone visited recently, got any suggestions?

      My wish list (but realise I can't have everything) is: Clean, self catering apartment, sea/harbour view, local/small town/village, bars/tavernas, supermarket, local restaurants.

    • Getting from Delphi to Meteora area.

      Delphi Jan 8, 2016 at 2:28 PM

      I didn't realize that it would be so hard to get from Delphi to Meteora. I have been reading, and it seems that our best bet would be to try to get the (:53 train from Levadia to Kalambaka. That means that we need to get a bus that would allow us lots of time as it seems that we also need to find a taxi to get us from the bus station to the train station. One question is whether anyone knows what times buses leave Delphi ( guess I should try to find a schedule) and two, this I can't find out. Will we have a hard time finding a taxi in Levadia?

      Thanks so much for any info. Elaine

      Wasps in Thassos

      We have booked Thassos for mid May this year and on many previous visits my wife and I have experienced problems with wasps but cant remember what time of year it was we went.
      My daughter and her husband are not good with wasps, but they insisted we all go to Thassos including our two year old granddaughter.
      I've read that wasps are only a problem on Greek islands August / September onwards, just wondered if anyone visited Thassos last year and were effected by these little blighters

      Should I book the ferries now?

      Greece Jan 18, 2016 at 1:22 AM

      Visiting Greece end of June start of July. Have been researching ferry connections between islands on gtp.gr and openseas.gr, which both give me ferry options for my selected dates. Would you recommend I book these now, or wait? Will they sell out if I don't reserve them now, or will there be more connections available as we approach summer?
      The same questions obviously also refer to flights.
      Plan on flying from Athens to Crete and taking the ferry to Santorini, Paros and Mykonos before returning to Athens.
      Another question: is it recommended to finalise all transportation before booking accommodation?
      Thanks!

      Hey there, I'm planning to go from Athens to Marathon next month, by bus. I read that I have to take the bus named 'Marathon' at Mavrommateon street, is that right? Do you have the updated rate? Is the bus final stop in a walking distance from The Tumulus of the Athenians or should I drop off anywhere else to reach this site? I heard that some drivers do not speak english and are not up to help that's why I'm worried

    • 10-12 days Mainland Greece

      Greece Feb 2, 2016 at 12:52 AM

      Hi, our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids 12yrs and 9yrs) will be in Greece for approx 3.5weeks. We plan to spend 2 weeks on the Greek Islands (including Ios to visit a relative as well 4-5 days in Crete).

      That leaves us approx 10-12 days to see the Greek mainland. We will be flying in and out of Athens. Preference to use trains/buses but we can hire a car if that is everyone's recommendation. Any suggestions for itinerary, must see places, where to stay or what to do are appreciated. Any good family friendly destinations would also be good. We are open to all suggestions :)

      Can anyone please give me advice on visiting Greece in April?

      Greece Jan 28, 2016 at 5:16 AM

      Hi, I have never been to Greece, so this is new territory for me. I am hoping to visit Greece at the beginning of April this year. I have very limited time (8 days in total) and my arrival and departure dates are inflexible. However, I am hoping to build in some flexibility during the eight days.

       

      So, what I would like to know is, taking into account that it is April i.e. low season, how much flexibility is there with booking ferries and accommodation a day or two before going out to one of the islands like Santorini?

       

      My thinking at the moment is to arrive in Athens and to spend one day/two nights there, and then to get an idea of what the weather is going to be like for the next couple of days. If the weather is quite OK, I would like to book/get on a ferry and head out to an island for a few days. I will need to book accommodation as well, which I would need to do in Athens.

       

      My tentative itinerary looks something like this, but it depends on the weather:

      • Tuesday: Arrive late afternoon / overnight Athens
      • Wednesday: Day in Athens / overnight Athens
      • Thursday: Travel to an island, preferably Santorini, using Blue Star Ferries
      • Friday: Santorini / overnight Santorini
      • Saturday: Santorini / overnight Santorini
      • Sunday: Travel to Athens using Blue Star Ferries / overnight Athens
      • Monday: Open day / flexi day
      • Tuesday: Open day / flexi day
      • Wednesday: Day in Athens / overnight Athens
      • Thursday: Depart Athens am

       

      What I am certain of, no matter the weather, is to be in Athens the Wednesday, because I depart Thursday morning.  I do not want to be on an island on the Wednesday only to find myself stuck becaue of bad weather. 

       

      I would appreciate any advice on this matter. 

      Many thanks

      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)

      Hello everyone!
      I'm planning an island hopping trip from Rhodes to Alexandroupolis in August and unexpectingly came across a problem with ferries to Samothraki. It seems that there are no ferries to Samothraki from neighbouring islands like Mitilini (Lesvos) or Limnos (at least they are not seen on the webpages on the major ferry companies). On the other hand, Lonely Planet and other tourist guidebooks mention that these ferry connections do exist. Can anyone clarify what's going on with the ferries in this part of the world and where the information on timetables can be obtained? Thank you!

      Hi! I have a similar problem to another poster. I'm traveling from Alexandroupolis to Istanbul. I have been told the busses are faster! One bus for example goes from Edirne to Istanbul in half the time it takes the train! One problem I can see is, the drop off point in Istanbul is more convenient at the train station than the bus station, way out of town. The negative is the train leaves at noon and doesn't get into Istanbul until 8 PM. Does anyone have more recent information or has anyone actually done this?

      Hi, I will be traveling from Istanbul to Alexandroupolis in April 2008.
      I prefer taking a train but from schedule looks like it leaves Ist. 8PM
      and arrives to Alexandroupolis around midnight, too late to look for a nice place to stay (2-3days) and I dont like to book a hotel in advance in unknown place before checking it first. Do you have any suggestions? How are the buses on the same route? I have heard they take twice as long and less comfortable, but hopefully come at decent times. Or maybe you know nice and not expensive hotel (motel, guest house?) in Alexandroupolis you can recommend? (but what if I show up 1AM and door is locked?)
      Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

      Hi all,

      Dear Moschos,

      I was in Alexandroupolis 4 years ago and have some very good friends living there. Recently I lost my mobile telephone at an airport with all my contact numbers in Alexandroupolis. I moved to London but now live in Chicago. Is there any chance any of you know a Giorgos V(B)oulgaridis? He is a 34 year old art teacher who used to live in Paris with me. He had an elder brother Tasos who died some years ago of cancer. He lived at Kritis 2 in Alexandroupolis with his parents but may have moved. If not, do you know Billis? He is a crazy taxi driver who has all sorts of videos and music in his disco taxi. Stellios is a very close friend of Giorgos but I do not know his last name, his sister and brother in law run a souvlaki shop in the centre of the city. Another is captain George Katsaros who is now living in Athens. All of them are around the same age 34/35. Another is Illias Karamanlis who also was driving a taxi but does all sorts of things, club owner etc. If you happen to know of these people please could you help me contact them again. They are very dear to me and I do not wish to lose touch.
