We are arriving into Fira Santorini in July by air at 6.05 in the morning... will there be public transport available to get into Fira as our hotel does not do pickups in July/August... thinking cheap
Hello guys, I have a few questions..
1) As I'm going to Santorini in the future maybe Mid Dec, (I know this is not the best time but this is the chance as I want to experience Santorini firsthand and opportunities like this doesn't come too often), is there any ferries service from Piraeus to Santorini on daily basis? Is it safe? Are the schedules reliable this time of the year? Bcs flight is kinda expensive and I want save a few bucks
2) Accomodation. I personally loved Scirocco Hotel but I understand they're closed (damn!) during Nov/Dec so what are my best substitute for them? In terms of location and style (you know, those blue and white washed walls and great view of houses left, right, down). I'm really looking up to stay a place which are surrounded by other hotels but with a good direct seaview of course. Maybe something around 100Euro per night? I looked at several sights but sometimes the photos are a deceiving.
3) I noticed that there are none halal certified restaurants around Santorini, so I should go on vege diet or seafood (which is just as great), so can you guys suggest a few reasonable seafood joints in Fira.
4) Is there a way I could come from Istanbul to Athens by train? And from Santorini to Turkey via ferries? Is it a good option?
5)Thinking of spending 2D1N in Santorini, what should I really do for a first timer?
I know its quite a lot so to those who are willing to help hopefully God can repay your kindness or something like that. Thanks in advance!
I'm trying to remember where on this island I purchased Olivia Hand Cream. We'll be visiting there next week and I would like to purchase several more tubes made by a Greek company called Papoutsanis. I remember we walked up and around the shopping area. The shop had a large assortment of Olivia products. Directions to this shop would be great.
On January 3rd I need to arrived in Santorini from Crete. I've been searching and haven't found any boat trips. This route exists in January or is it cancelled? Does it exist the posibility once beeing in Crete to find a boat to take me to Santorini? Companies like sea Jets, Hellenic Seaways, etc. apparently don't do this route in winter. Hope you could help me!!
I'm planning to go to Mykonos for the first time next June. My husband and I are Ibiza veterans and love the idea of Mykonos - but as we are in our 30's we also enjoy getting some sleep now and then! We want to stay somewhere stylish with a good choice of places to eat and bars in the evening.
Have been looking at the Rocabella In Agios Stefanos but am worried this may be a little far out for us - what else is going on in Agios Stefanos? Is it just hotels?
Looking for stylish/ affordable area with great food and restaurants and bars. Would love to stay somewhere we could watch the sunset every evening.
Please advise people!!!!
Is it best to book a tour to Delos before we arrive on the island or to wait and buy them in Mykonos? We will be on the island October 9 through 11.
I am staying in Naxos late October/early NOvember and want to make trips to Delos but am told that the ferry doesnt operate then. I must get to Delos. Any ideas for other ways to get to Delos during that time.
We only have USA drivers' licenses, are we able to rent a motor bike. How are the fees? I checked at Pier1 in Mykonos and it's about Eu 10-22. Are there other fees and what about gas and mileage? Thank you.
As we are limited by the travelling schedule, there is only 1 day left for us to visit Delos. There is a Seajet catamaran from Rafina reaching Mykonos at 9.30am. Would we be able to catch the Delos Guided Tour that departs at 10am?
The intention is to return back to Mykonos to explore a little before taking a night flight back to Athens.
Anybody can advise if there are any foreseeable problems with this plan?
How can you get to London without flying from Mykonos?
Hi,can you please recommend me good restaurants in Fira. We prefer sea food and if possible not very touristy.
What type of drivers licence do you need to hire a quad bike?
Hello, can you please recommend me a taxi company in Santorini? How much would taxi cost from airport to Fira? Our hotel gave us a quote which sounds a bit pricey.
I cannot seem to find a ferry schedule from mykonos to paros for the first week of october??? Where do I find one and book tickets online or wait until I am in Athens
We are going to Santorini in October. Can anybody recommend me a nice, quality and not so pricey sea food restaurant? Preferably around Fira?

Thank you :)
I will be in Santorini in Oct. I really want to try restaurants only locals go.Any good suggestions would be appreciated. Than you
I have mobility/balance problems. No wheelchair, just wobbly & can't climb flghts of stone steps with no handrails. Can anyone recommend a restaurant in Fira or Imerovigli where we can enjoy the sunset without the treacherous stair-climb?
We are planning to visit Mykonos during late November this year. Will the pubs/restaurants and shops open at this time of the year ?
Hi, can you pls advise me if there are water taxis that can take us from the port in Fira to Oia - thanks
Will be in Naousa and Parikia next month. Looking forward to local spirits, but also need to provision bar with Tanqueray gin and Glenlivit Scotch. Can you advise which liquor store would be most likely to stock these brands? Or provide a number so I can check? Thanks so much!
How can I get the port of Mykonos,when I arrived at airport ? Is there any bus or only taxi ? Thanks in advance
When traveling and hiking through Hawaii we typically wear running shorts and tank tops. What do you recommend we wear walking/ hiking through Naxos? I have hear we can leave the heavy boots at home. Do we need regular running shoes? Would we look like complete american tourists if I wore running shorts and a loose tank? I realize this is a girl question:) but if I own the stuff to blend in I would rather take it!
We have been here in mykanos for three days - today is august 7th and still we haven't caught sign of the fabled pelican. What's happened to him?
we'll only be in santorini from 7:00am - 6:00 pm.... we booked a tour from our cruise line that starts at 8:00am until 12:00 noon (we figured it would be more efficient & we can get to oia faster if we book morning tour from them) and then do our own thing after the tour, which is eat at Seagul and go hotel hopping (we want to see perivolas and 1864 The Sea Captain's House).....
my questions are:
1. do you recommend just walking for our hotel hopping (we just want to see perivolas and 1864 The Sea Captain's House)? how much time do we need to allot for this?
2. how much time do we need to allot to go from oia to fira (for the cable car)
3. from oia, how do we get to fira (for the cable car)
4. how much time do we need to allot for the cable car lines in fira to get to the tender dock (i read somewhere that the cable car lines get very long)
5. how much time do we need to allot from the tender dock back to our ship?
thanks in advance!
Last year i went several times to the wonderful Beach of Agathia but today i found the road
closed by a grid at the point where a small factory of a shepard is. Does anybody know
how to reach the Beach?
We're looking for a restaurant with a view to have lunch and Seagul looks like an interesting option problem is I can't find the address or how to get there. I'm just wondering if someone can give us a direction how to get there.
If you have other restaurant suggestion we would really love to hear it. We just want a resto with a view.
Thanks in advance!
We are flying to Mykonos Sept 2013, and have seen recent reports that there is a really bad problem in Mykonos with Rubbish/Refuse! Can anyone advise if they have experienced this problem?? Is it only in certain areas?? Should we avoid certain places?? We are going to Platis Yialos!!
Many Thanks :)
Will we find it easy to get a taxi from Imerovigli back to Fira after sunset (October 1)?
