      Tour trips to Elafonisi in April?

      Elafonisi Apr 16, 2015 at 2:13 AM

      Does any tour organiser make trips from Chania to Elafonisi in last week of April? I suppose that if we use the municipal buses, we'd have to spend the entire day in Elafonisi. Just a couple of hours is enough there (we just want to see the place and walk around the beach, not sunbath).
      Or is the only way to rent a car.

We plan to spend the next full day visiting various important places of tourist interest in Athens. However, we would like to explore areas nearby to our hotel in the few hours that we have on the day of our arrival.
      1.any suggestions for what to do for the evening of the day of our arrival?
      2. Any nearby market place that we can just walk around and possibly pick up something to eat.
      3 How does one get to the Strathmos Bairaktari Café Resturant, at 63 Mitropoleos, Dimopratirious Square. (Etaomoe Mhaipaktaph). (picked up by reading the reviews of fellow travelers).
      4. Would welcome any other suggestions for cheap and authentic Greek food.

      mens silver bracelets...

      Santorini Island Apr 17, 2015 at 6:34 AM

      hi , its driving me crazy- i bought an amazing mens click on bracelet from santorini back in 2005, and sadly lost that bracelet..
      for the life of me cannot recall the shop- im assuming it was in Fira..as we were based around there for the week.
      all i recall is a grumpy shop owner,his fat tummy hanging out-but amazing jewellery and crafts.
      the bracelet was really unique, lots of detail design in it.
      if anyone has names and websites for some jewellery stores on santorini plz let me know.

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)

      I have a lovely handkerchief that was given to me many years ago from the Saint Stefanos Monastery and the accompanying paper has some Greek writing on it, a drawing of the monastery, and is numbered (45857). I am trying to find out if it was made there by nuns and the significance of the number. All my relatives who went there are gone and I don't know who to ask. I thought it would be a lovely gift to hand down to my granddaughter who is being baptized this week.

      Meteora Aug 7, 2012 at 6:19 PM

      Hi,
      I am travelling on a four day tour in mid/late August that arrives in Meteora in the evening (from Delphi) and has the Monday morning in Meteroa before heading back to Athens. I don't think this will be enough time to really see Meteora so I was thinking of staying longer and making my way back to Athens by myself.

      Plan A - stay for the afternoon and then catch the 5.32pm train back to Athens on that day (i.e. one full day to see Meteora)
      Plan B - stay the afternoon and the following day and then catch the 5.32pm train back to Athens (i.e. two full days to see Meteora)

      How long do you think I need to look at the monastries? Are there other sights that I should take the time to see in the area? Are the trains running at the moment?

      Thanks
