      Hello. I'm traveling to Kavala for the first time with my husband and two sons (ages 7 and 10) in August. We want to visit all the main attractions in Kavala and surrounding areas but unsure of what area to stay in -- whether it is the city or by the beach. I think we may need to be near the water just to have a relaxing activity at the end of the day. What do you recommend? Thank you!

      How much time?

      Delphi May 21, 2015 at 4:55 AM

      Ok, here is the question. How much time does the site deserve? I am history and archaeology person.
      1 tour said 1 hour for the museum and 45 minutes at the site itself. Most 1 day tours give 2-3 hours, splitting the time between the museum and the site. Also, none of the 1 day programs go to the Sanctuary of Athena.

      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.

      Hello,
      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...

Are the people who stay there mostly Greek, European, etc? I'd just like to get a feel for what it's like there.

      Kalamata to Athens Airport

      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?

      Camping close to Kardhamili

      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!!
