    • How do you like Arillas?

      Arillas Mar 23, 2015 at 2:01 PM

      My family and I are thinking about spending one week to ten days in Arillas in late June. None of us have ever been to Greece, and we are just seeking a beautiful place to relax, play with our kids (ages 8 and 5), be on the beach, go to some nice restaurants, and also discover the area around Arillas. Could you tell me what you thought of your vacation in Arillas? Could you also tell me what kinds of things one can do in and around Arillas? Are there nice places or villages to visit nearby? I would be grateful for any and all advice and thoughts. How does Arillas compare to the rest of Corfu and vacationing on other Greek islands? Thanks for your help!

    • PLAN FOR TWO NIGHTS AND ONE DAY IN ATHENS

      Greece Mar 19, 2015 at 9:58 PM

      Hi, we, a middle aged couple are planning to visit Athens on our way to Santorini and Mykonos. We arrive one afternoon, have complete day two in Athens and will depart for Santorini on day three. On our return again we arrive one afternoon and will have a complete evening to spend in Athens. Could anyone suggest an itinerary for our time. Specifically, I would like to know:-
      1. Is it worth taking an evening / night tour of Athens?.
      2. Can we take a walking tour in the Day.
      3. Is there a free walking tour. If yes the timings please.
      3. If we have done the above, what would be left to do on the second evening.
      4. Suggestions for good tours are welcome. We would not wish to have exclusive tours but would like to join other groups.
      Thanks in advance.

    • BLUE STAR FERRY DELOS: AIR SEATS LOUNGES 1 TO 5

      Greece Mar 28, 2015 at 3:57 AM

      Hi, We intend taking a Blue Star Ferry (Delos) from Athens to Santorini. One finds that there are Air Seats Lounges serial 1 to 5. Before we book our seats could anyone guide on:-
      1. The difference between lounges 1 to 5.
      2. Which have the best view while seated?
      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?
      TIA.

    • FERRY BOOKING BETWEEN MYKONOS AND SANTORINI IN SEP 2015

      Greece Mar 28, 2015 at 10:42 PM

      Hi, I know the question has been put a number of times on the forum. Pardon me for repeating; just want to be doubly sure so that there is no hitch in our travel schedule. My wife and I are senior citizens and are travelling between Mykonos and Santorini in end Sep 2015. After reading suggestion so aptly given by fellow VT members, we have planned to take the Sea Jets ferry from Mykonos to Naxos and by Blue Star from Naxos to Santorini. We would obviously want to be fully confident on the travel schedule. Is there ANY reason why we should book in advance or can we be 100% sure of getting ticket from both ports prior to departure (other unforeseen situations of weather / ferry cancellations are of course understood).

      Is there a bus that goes past this the Lakitira Suites hotel from the airport?

      The hotel appears to be 4km west of Kardamena, not at Kardamena as shown by Google maps. This is a link of the possible routes. It may just be easier to hire a taxi, but I was hoping to master the public transport.

    • GREEK ISLAND HOPPING - JULY-SEPT 2015

      Greece Mar 26, 2015 at 1:59 AM

      Hey there,

      Firstly - LOVE this VT Forum - I always receive so much useful info...

      My husband and I plan to island hop through the Cyclades, Greek Islands from late July - mid-September 2015.
      We don't like to plan or book ahead, preferring to just take each day as it comes.

      1) is it possible to just turn up to an island off the ferry and get accommodation at that time of year?

      2) are there any recommendations of "must see" islands, other than Santorini and Mykonos?

      Thanks in advance

      Hello everybody,
      I will be in athens at the beginning of May. My hotel is at Omonia square and I would like to know what it's like right now. I know that everybody says that it's really dangerous, but it's no option for me to avoid it at night time, because my plane lands around 8 pm. After all the reviews, I'm a bit scared to walk around with my suitcase. My hotel is only 20 meters from the subway station. Does that make it a bit safer? I won't have to walk around very long. And does anybody have any tips for me to "survive" my first night there?

      Rethymno May 26, 2005 at 4:21 AM

      i spent a year in rethymnon in 1987/1988. i taught english at the paragioudakis frontisterion and stayed in a rent room in the old part of the city. my reminiscinces are that although the place was lovely, the winter was pretty grim (wet & windy - just like my native brighton). i used to spend most of my time with the other ex-pats at the why not? bar, sunshine bar, sunset bar (round the city wall), and tasos restaurant on the front, stelios restaurant near the town hall, together with the occasional visit to plakias and georgiopolis.

      are any of these places still going? i loved it in the summer, and also the students i taught.

      Of all the budget hotels in Rethymnon, the only one I can find a valid email address or web site for is Rent Rooms Sea View. For 35 Euros a night it seems like a good deal, though there's no way for me to compare that price to others in town because they are apparently not connected to the internet in any way. If anyone knows anything about this place I would appreciate hearing from you. Thanks. Here's the web site they have: rethymnoatcrete.com/seafront...

      Hotel recommendation? How long should I stay?

      Rethymno Mar 28, 2005 at 8:22 AM

      After seeing Knossos and the archeological museum in Heraklion, I plan to take the bus to Rethymnon and spend at least one night there before driving down to Plakias for a few nights and then to the southwest part of Crete for the remainder of my visit. I will probably arrive in Rethymnon in the evening. Can someone recommend a good but inexpensive hotel there?

      Also, is one night enough in Rethymnon or should I stay a second night so I can spend a full day there before heading south? I don't want to be in too big of a hurry, but I also don't want to miss anything if it's worth staying longer. Normally I would not try planning things like this but I need to know when to have my rental car reserved. Thanks.

      Elafonissos

      Prefecture of Rethymno May 19, 2003 at 11:33 AM

      How long would it take to drive from Chania to Elafonissos? From past experience on Crete, I've learned never to try and figure distances based on klms. Last time I drove the dirt road to Preveli beach... only six km which took about 2 hours and it was such a disappointment to find out at the end of the road that I still had to climb the mountain to get over the other side (which I didn't) or pay the ferryman a handsome sum to take me there (which I also didn't as I hadn't thought to bring enough money with me...) Is Elafonissos worth the trip? Any other must see places en route? Thanks in advance!

      Hello all Could someone inform me if there is a local paper in Rethymno which carries job and accommodation adverts? If so, which is its day of circulation? We will be down in Rethymnon next week 27-30/5/03 to attend an interview but I would like to make good use of my time and try to arrange a couple more job interviews. Any idea of the cost of living in Rethymnon? I.e. how much to rent a dyari (one bed flat), how much to budget for food and utilities, and so on? I hope there will be some students there with up to date information or some foreigner workers with great tips! Awaiting your comments... :)
