      greek islands from turkey

      by shakakthar Online Now Dec 3, 2014 at 10:19 PM

      hello all... i want to visit symi island and santorini in april from BODRUM or MARMARIS in turkey by ferry..
      i observed that though these islands are closer to turkey than athens. the approach from turkey is very difficult and very few options available via RHODES.
      from athens it is very long journey by blueboat cruise and only one ferry per day to santorini. [ i am aware of flights from athens to santorini but i want cheaper option]

      has anybody travelled from turkey to SYMI or SANTORINI please share your experience.

      thanks

    • location similar to Kamari promenade elsewhere?

      by bigjim33 Online Now Nov 16, 2014 at 4:06 AM

      In the last summer I spent a few days in the town of Kamari. I liked the pedestrian promenade along the beach with many clubs, restaurants and small hotels directly on it. It was very pleasant to have a drink in our hotel’s pool-bar facing the sea and the nice crowd walking on the promenade.
      I’m wondering if a location like this exsists in any other Greek island! Do you know any?

      2 days Santorini and 1 day Athens - Itinerary

      by csuresh Online Now Oct 20, 2014 at 7:20 AM

      I, my wife and 2 kids will be in Santorini this weekend. We have 2 full days - we are staying in Fira and our plan is to cover a museum and then to Oia till sunset. Next day cover the boat tour to volcano island, black beach and if time permits to Akrotiri. Overnight at Athens and we have full day to visit acropolis and around before taking a flight in the evening to London. I wanted to know whatelse I should cover and what can be skipped. I have seen some cultural shows/dance during my visit to few countries- considering its history - do they have any shows conducted in Santorini.

It was on the left hand side of the walkway as you go towards the fort. I've looked on-line and can't find it. Any help would be appreciated.

Looking for great food and atmosphere. I'll be traveling alone so romantic spots are not a high priority. Quality of the food and the experience is the most important. Thanks!
