I just wanted to know if there are any tennis courts in Santorini that are independent i.e. not attached to any hotel and open to public. We are staying in Fira for a week. If there are any, do they provide racquets to adults and kids?
Can anybody tell me if the cigarette prices are the same this year or have they gone up? I was paying €3.80 for L&B silver last September. Also, are they freely available - I have heard they must be ordered in advance. I will be staying in Roda.
I am travelling to zakynthos on May 2nd 2013. I really wish to participate in Orthodox Easter. I am staying at Tsilvi. Obviously, I guess any church would be good but where do you REALLY recommend?
My wife and I are fortunate enough to have 3 weeks to spend in Crete this coming summer; woot!
Our main interests are; 1) Seeing historical sites; 2) Enjoying charming towns and good tavernas; and 3) Seeing the ocean.
That said, we are at a quandary regarding where to stay. We do NOT want to move around every few days, so have come up with a few options:
1) Spend 1 week in Sitia, seeing the eastern part of the island; Spend 1 week in Rethymno; Spend 1 week in Chania....and of course, a couple nights Iraklion to fly in and out and see Knossos.
2) Spend 1.5 weeks in Rethymno; and 1.5 weeks in Chania
3) Spend 1.5 weeks in Chania OR Rethymno; spend 1.5 weeks somewhere in the south.
So.... what does everybody think?
In advance, many thanks : )

I would like to know how people travel in and around Athens, Greece? Can we rent a car and drive around or their train system or metro is as good as Italy or any other European countries. Can we take some day trips to Greek Islands? Any suggested ferries websites? Any info on Greek travel would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Currently have 4 days booked in Santorini. Travelling on my own and starting to think that it will be too long. Thinking of going back to Mykonos for the other 2 days. More things to do for a single gay guy. Will 2 days be enough to see the sights of Santorini?
I will be travelling to Mykonos in July and plan to propose to my girlfriend while we are there, I have a few ideas whizzing about my head, but can anybody recommend any places, beaches, restaurants etc to give me a bit of starting point? Having never been before I'm going in completely blind, so any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I am visiting Santorini in last week of May for a week with my family. My wife is vegetarian. Will we get vegetarian restaurants ( No fish, no eggs , milk etc is fine ) and also if we decide to cook at home, will we get veg pasta and veggies in grocery shop. If there is an issue , I m planning to carry some of the items from UK.
In santorini we are staying in Fira.
Any thoughts / tips / suggestions
I would like to know how to visit some of the of Greek islands for example Santoroni, Mekonos, Naxos may be Rhodes from Ahtens? how many days we need to travel , I feel one day may not be enough. Please advice me.
I am also thinking in this way, please let me know if this is good. Since we are coming to Istanabul first and planning to fly to Athens after few days in Istanabul, may be we should drive down to Izmir take a ferry from there to these islands and finally reach Athens instead of flying. What do you guys suggest about that route? If we do this way which port we should start on Turkey side? and how many days we need to reach Athens from there. We dont want to spend more time in each island, we just want to have a feel of that place. We are planning to go there later again in few years. I would appreciate as much as information you can give to help me plan my trip, thanks in advance
Hi, We have booked a holiday for july this year and are staying in Balos, we enjoy the quieter areas and are thinking of hiring a car to get out and about but are unsure if we should get a car from the airport and drive to Balos given that we have not been before and are unaware of the area or directions. So my questions are. Would it be easy to get from the airport to Balos driving ourselves or should we get a taxi and any idea on prices and time to reach Balos. Also if anyone knows where we could get more information about this area it would be great as it is off the beaten track a little we are finding it hard to get much info. Any information anyone may have would be very much appriciated Thanks x
My wife and I are looking for inexpensive accommodations on Samos for about 5-7 nights. We would like to be near a beach, but we don't to be right on it. We just want a clean, quiet place with a private toilet and shower and decent rates. I do not know which part of the island we'll be staying on, so any location is fine.
