    • Couple Fira or Oia church questions

      Santorini Island Jul 14, 2015 at 12:47 PM

      I am driving myself crazy trying to figure out where certain churches are located.  I found the site "Greeka" and a guide to 9 churches in Santorini, but I'm trying to get more specific information on just where these churches are.  I've tried to attach a picture of one that really interests me that's in Firostefani.  I know Firostefani isn't that big, but I'm not great on finding things, so need some extra help!  Can you drive to this church (we're renting a quad bike) or must you drive close and then walk?

      Also, I ran across an article that provides GPS coordinates (which I can't understand or get to work) to a church that's supposedly in Oia, but I'm thinking it's really Fira, as it mentions "Gold Street."  Isn't that in Fira?  It is a church (or maybe two) with salmon belltower and 2 blue domes.  The person is standing in front of a gate to (I suppose) a hotel or maybe just a way to get downhill to the church.  She says to duck into the alley beside the Minerali jewelry store.  Anyone know where this might be?  The GPS coordinates start with 36 degrees north and 25 degrees east, which indicates further to me that it's somewhere in Fira - but the numbers aren't in good enough shape for me to determine the rest and enter it into Google Earth..  

      Also, this may be same church, but I read that there 's a really nice blue domed church with 3 bells in Fira, near Mama Thira's.  Can anyone give me more information on that?  Looks like the website where I found that is "theplanetd"under photography guide for Santorini.

      One more question: I've used Google Maps and less so viamichelin to plot routes on Santorini.  Are those times fairly reliable, even if I'm going to some of the lesser tourist-traveled places like Mesa Gonia, Pirgos and Megalochori?

      Thankyou & Efharisto tor anyone who can answer my questions!

      Renting a Cabrio in Athens

Can someone suggest a reliable local car rental company, which has some sort of selection of cabrios? Does it make sense to rent a car in the city rather than in the airport, or prices are the same?

      Six days in the Peloponnese

      Kalamata Jul 1, 2014 at 4:02 AM

      Hello.

      I'll be traveling to Greece at the end of july. While I have to be in Athens on august 1, I got an earlier flight and I will land in Kalamata on july 26, which was cheaper. Once I'm there I have decided to use the days before going to Athens to explore the Peloponnese peninsula.

      I understand Kalamata is a big city, but not particullary attractive, so I was wondering if this is the best place to stay or if it would be better for me to travel and find a hostel in another town. I am interested in knowing all the archeological sites, specially Olympia, and would like a place from where I can easily move around the zone. is it better to stay in one city and do daytrips from there? or is better to go moving along and spending a night or two in different places?

      Also which places do you recommend me to see, while history is my main concern, I am also open to any other kind of cultural attractions.

      Thanks.

      I will be in mostly Kalamata based around Messinia for 10 days from the beginning of september. I'm really very like to swim and sunbath in the beaches mostly pebbles and stones. I heard about the Foneas beach is perfect and of course I will be there. I'm asking if there are other beaches like Foneas (hidden paradise) around? I think transportation will not a big problem cause I also booked a car, so I can reach the places easily if I well informed and planned the schedule before...

      Kalamata to Athens Airport

      Kalamata Jun 17, 2010 at 9:18 AM

      Hello to all -

      My wife and I fly out of Athens at 14.30 on a Tuesday. I have looked at an Athens Long Distance bus schedule and it appears that buses to Athens leave at 4.45, 6.00, and 7.00. Do you think we can make it from Stoupa to Kalamata to Athens in time for the plane? I know it would be a push, but we are trying to have one last night in the Peloponnese, rather than spending it in Athens. Even if we had to get an early taxi from Stoupa to Kalamata or something other than the bus. Can we make it to the airport for our flight?

      Thanks for all the advice!

      Hello to All -

      My wife and I will be coming to the Kardhamili area in late June by bus from Athens (via Nafplio) with nothing but a couple of backpacks and a tent. We are looking for a campsite that is close to Kardhamili. Doesn't have to be big or anything special, just a place to set down our tent and sleep. We are planning on moving around a lot during the day and not being so much at the campground. I have looked online and found Kalogria campsite in Stoupa and Delifina in Neo Proastio. I was wondering if anyone else knew of these and could offer thoughts or had any other suggestions, and how easy it is to get from these campsites to Kardhamili and other surrounding areas without a car. Also, what might be the best way to get from Nafplio to Kardhamili by bus (or train). Thank you!!
