    • Antique furniture

      Rhodes (Island) Oct 1, 2015 at 1:34 PM

      I am looking to furnish a house in Rhodes with antique furniture. What I am looking for is traditional Greek island wooden sofas, rush taverna chairs, and old wooden table, wardrobe etc. Does anyone know if there are markets for this kind of thing, or second hand furniture and antique shops? Thank you.


      Mykonos Sep 11, 2015 at 10:00 PM

      We are to travel by ferry from Mykonos to Santorini in end sep 15. The two options are Seajet (Superjet) (0940-1140) and Hellenic Seaways, (Highspeed 4) (1440-1715). So as to spend an additional evening in Santorini, we would prefer the earlier Seajet Ferry. However, the internet is full of negative reviews about this. We are not so much bothered about the sea sickness issue which may have a greater effect on the Superjet being a smaller vessel. However, the issue of dependability and punctuality etc is of major concern to us. Are Superjets really all that bad or are they merely victims of bad publicity launched by competitors. I seek the help of fellow VT members to help solve the dilemma.

    • Greek itinerary

      Greece Sep 21, 2015 at 12:53 PM

      We are 60ish couple and like slow travel. This will be our first time in Greece, 4.5 weeks in spring 2016. We will spend a few days in Athens and then the rest of the time in the Peloponnese. We like to hike and also explore history/art/food/nature. We usually rent an apartment or house for 1-2 weeks and then do day trips from there.

      My question is where to situate ourselves on the Peloponnese and what islands to go to if any? I was looking at Poros, Elafonissos, or????? I thought easier to get to an island closer to the Peloponnese rather than try to get to Santorini? Suggestions would be great! We will rent a car.

      We've been there twice, driving down the mountain from the west. We saw the beginning of the road going north to Zakros, it wasn't asphalted. Do you know this road? A non asphalted and not well kept road can be broken up, especially when it crosses creeks.


      Of course we'll ask at the place, but we'll get the replies of people experienced in driving this road, and maybe with jeeps.

    • Bus vs. Car Rental

      Athens Oct 1, 2015 at 9:32 AM

      We will be traveling to Santorini Greece in July, 2016. I've been doing a lot of reading on using the bus system vs. renting a car and would like some guidance. I hear the buses are at full capacity during this very high tourist season, but I also hear that finding parking can be very difficult. We want to see many of the usual sights in Santorini including the beaches, ancient sights, old churches, etc. What do you suggest for transportation while we're there? If anyone recommends a rental car, do you have any tips for how to find parking at the various destinations? When we traveled to Italy, I found that we could reserve and pay ahead for parking in their parking garages in Rome where available parking is very rare. Thanks for your help!

      I've got a 1:150,000 Marco Polo map of Crete, I don't find a date on it - but the label of the store is from 2011.Should I look for other or newer maps? We're going to drive at least a week in the west side.

      I remember that there were several roads on the map that hadn't been built yet, only planned (I'm not going to look for them, I just remember that we got to places where we couldn't go on).

    • Laganas to Marathonissi in June?

      Zante Island Jun 4, 2014 at 6:21 AM

      My 17 year old is heading off on school leavers trip to Zante, staying in Laganas - she is well aware of its partying possibilities but a few of them are also interested in the non-party side to the island and this seems a little tricky to find out about. They are on a limited budget and are trying to find out the approx costs of a trip to Marathonissi or any other less busy beaches - all ideas welcome! Appreciate there are many boat tours available but these seem to be quite expensive and be maybe 3 hours or so where they are really just looking for a trip across and back? Also seems conflicting info - are boats allowed to land at this time of year because of turtle nesting?
      Thank you so much?

      I'm planning a wedding in Zakynthos next year and I have a few questions.
      Is early september a good time of the year to visit the island?
      I am not sure where on the island we will have our wedding, I have heard that Tsivili is very lively, but might not suit older people in our wedding party.

      We want an area which is genuinely greek, with a bit to do, but mainly unspoiled and relaxed. Any suggestions?

      Also, I am finding it hard to get information on transport between Zakynthos and Santorini, ideally we would love to cruise to Santorini after the wedding then spend a few days there. Is this possible?

      Hi all,

      No matter i'm a Greek i've never been to Zakynthos yet; i'm going there this year though. I've heard about this wonderful turtle event and that only 3/1000 of them finally make it - i guess people have something to do with that.

      Anyways, there is a day or a period of days that baby turtles pop out of their eggs and start walking towards the sea. This has to be a great thing to watch so i'd like to ask if anyone got to see it and what was the date cos i'd like to go.

      I already know turtles leave their eggs between June and August, but i wanna know when the eggs get broken and newborns get out.
