    • Help me - in need of a day party place?

      Agios Nikolaos 11 hours ago

      Hi all, I was wondering if you could help me. My friend is having her wedding in Crete at the end of the summer, we are staying in Agios Nikolaos and we would like to have a 'hen' party for her. We do not want anything 'tacky', a place that is sophisticated like Ocean Club, Blue Marlin, Nikki Beach - them sort of places. Is there anything like this around this area, we do not mind travelling. Thanks so much!

      Bus: Thessaloniki to Sofia

      Thessaloniki 6 hours ago

      Haven't posted it yet. Anything else I should add?

      My wife and I are going to be in Thessaloniki in late September and from there, we are heading to Sofia. I see that there is now train service between the two cities, but I think the bus still looks to be shorter and arrives earlier, which is favourable for us.

      I have a few questions about the bus: 1. Where exactly do you catch the bus? Wikitravel says 'You can catch this bus if you continue on an imaginary line at the end of Maria Luisa street. It meets in front of the "cafe" and just a few meters to the left of the entrance to the WC.' Is that correct?

      2. Generally, how is the bus travel on this line? Any idea on how many washroom stops it makes?

      3. We arrive in Thessaloniki four days before departing to Sofia. If we pick up tickets when we arrive, will there likely still be some available? Where do we purchase these tickets?

      Thanks in advance!

      Data plan for iPhone in Greece

      Greece Jul 9, 2014 at 4:49 PM

      I always get a local sim card whenever I travel. But have sometimes had to put up with some limitations. For example in Italy, we were only able to get one type of prepaid plan because we were tourists, and were not able to choose from a few different ones.

      I will be using the data plan extensively since we will be winging it for two weeks with a rental car, and will need to search for sites, hotels etc, and I have to have to access my emails 24/7. I have looked at the websites of the main providers, but none of them have proved helpful with package details and prices. Any help would be great.

      Will be landing in Athens, so I'm sure I can find any store once we're in the city, I don't need to get it from the airport.

      have our flights and hotels booked.

      for the ferryboat between santorini and mykonos there seem to be several competing companies, each offering a variety of seat arrangements at varying costs. is one company any better than any other. and which seating option is best value - not interested in steerage class.

      there are multiple websites offering to sell tickets for the ferryboat. is there one preferred site or official site to make sure this is done correctly and with the right people. all the sites look so official.

      lastly, very close to renting a car in santorini. can anybody recommend a quality car rental outfit in mykonos?

      and yes i do appreciate all the help we have gotten. as k knows, our travelling companions may be very nice people but they are not easy. thanks.

      I've been told that the best place to stay in Heraklion is on the 25th August Street. Can someone recommend some hotels there? Or would I find better hotels elsewhere? My budget is approx. Euro150 per night.
      In Chania I've been told that we should be staying on the harbour... is it a good suggestion? Budget remains the same, i.e. Euro150 per night.

      I have a question concerning the 9.45Am Ferry from Heraklion to Santorini because i stay for 3 days in Chania and then i have to go to Heraklion and catch the Ferry to Santorini.

      Do you think that leaving Hania in 5.30Am Bus i'll arrive in Heraklion with enough time to Buy the ferry ticket to santorini?
      I'm afraid that i cannot find a ticket one hour/half hour before of the depart.
      Do you sugest me to sleep that night in Heraklion and then at the other day be early at the port and buy the ticket.
