      mens silver bracelets...

      by TravisE Online Now 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.

      thx.

    • Greece holiday in June 2015

      by Kleinjan Online Now Apr 14, 2015 at 3:39 AM

      We are a group of four going to Greece for nearly 4 weeks in June.
      We land in Athens and want to do island hopping from there.
      Want to do as much as possible, see as much as possible and make the most of it.
      Obviously Santorini, Mykonos and Ios is a must.
      Any advice where to go, which islands to visit, which parties are the best, best nude beaches to visit where, etc.
      In fact, we don't have an idea where to start planning and where to go, haha!
      We are a fun loving bunch, but would like to experience the "real" Greek way of living, not do the whole "tourist" thing.
      Any advice for planning our trip?

      Thanks.

      We'll be in santorini for four nights in April. Since we dont want to be lugging our bags around with us we are planning to keep Santorini as a base and plan day trips to nearby islands. Can anybody tell me the places that should be on top of my list.(But i wouldnt want to spend more than 3hrs travelling one way). Also is there a çheck-in time for Ferries too (that would also be included in the total travel time)? Or do we arrive on time and just take our seats.. like in a bus..? I've never travelled in a boat of any kind.. what are the things that i should keep in mind?

      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.
