      Help Me Plan My Trip To Santorini

      Santorini Island Mar 30, 2014 at 7:04 AM

      I am spending 8 day in Santorini in September 2014. I'd like to hear what others did on their stays. I'm breaking the trip into three segments so I can experience the island from different perspectives - 3 days in Fira, 2 days in Imerovigli and 3 days in Oia. What were the 2-3 most memorable things that you did in Santorini - things that I should not miss? Thanks!!

    • Cable car or walk?

      Santorini Island Mar 28, 2014 at 8:45 AM

      We will be on a cruise in June and have 11 hours in port. Rather than taking a cruise line score excursion I am thinking of touring on my own. In addition to the usual tendering delay, it appears that there is also a potential, long delay in using the cable car in Fira. Several posts mention stairs to climb. How treachurous is it? Approximate distance? How long for a person used to walking long distances though not climbing for long distances. Recommendations?

      From Athens to Mykonos

      Mykonos Apr 21, 2014 at 11:55 AM

      Hi all, I need to be in Mykonos at the 5th or 6th of June, coming in from Amsterdam. Off course I can book straight flight from Amsterdam to Mykonos, but I think it saves money to fly to Athens and go from Athens to Mykonos, by boat or plane. What I checked till now is that there is only one flight a day from Athens to Mykonos and departs early in the morning. Now does somebody know if it is easy to purchase a ticket for the ferry from Athens to Mykonos and what are the time schedules and where can I buy these tickets. Thank you for any reply

      We have a couple weeks to explore the Cyclades. We have a place in Naxos for a week. Is it worth it to book another place in Santarini for the next week, or should we stay in Naxos and take day trips to Santarini?

      Best Route?

      Santorini Island Apr 17, 2014 at 3:40 AM

      Hi There. We will be ready to depart Istanbul on Sunday 6th July and have 17 nights to spend in the Greek Islands. We have decided upon Santorini, Crete and Mykonos for a mix of Food, Culture, Beaches and nightlife. (probably split 6 nights, 6 nights and 5 nights to allow time to soak up each island)
      I am looking for advise on the best route / order to visit these islands - do i need to go from Istanbul to Athens and start the ferries from there? Or can i fly direct from Istanbul to the first island?
      Also, does anyone have a suggestion for the most effective route to take between these 3 islands?
      Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    • Getting around Syros and other islands

      by grdn1956 Online Now Mar 22, 2011 at 1:09 PM

      I am visiting Syros this summer with my son and daughter (both adults). We will be based on Syros (my son is performing in the Festival of the Aegean) but will take ferries to Mykonos and Tinos or Paros (day trips). Is there an easy way of getting around the islands if we want to visit beaches or get out of the city? Are there scooters or bicycles for rent?

      i will be going to Syros for about 20 days in a couple of weeks and would be most interested to be able to see something at the Apollo Theatre. I did not find any events on the website and wonder if the theatre is only open during the summer. If there is any event on, I would be most interested in receiving it and some information as to how to book tickets on-line if possible. I visited the theatre and found it extremely beautiful, a small replica of the Scala here in Milan.

      Thanking you in advance for any information you may be able to send me,

    • Kini Accomodation

      by Williemak Online Now Sep 27, 2006 at 12:23 PM

      I am hoping to holiday on Syros next year, and have been looking at the available accomodation in Kini. The place looks lovely, and not too far to the nudist beach at Delphini, but not many apartments. I had looked at the Captains Place, but having read a post here which derided it, I have been put off. Can anyone recommend a good place for my friend and myself. We need a 2 bedroom apartment (we're friends, not lovers), and want it to be clean and well maintained. Any suggestions???

      by wearyboy Online Now Sep 24, 2006 at 6:10 PM

      hello from texas!! I'm a first time poster and I am going to Syros for the very first time. I was hoping you could tell me if Sea Colours Hotel is a good place to stay or not? Myself and my girlfriend want to stay in a clean,safe, and nice place while visiting the island. We also however do not want to spend too much money each night. Lastly, we want to be sure that the place that we decide to stay at is close or in the place where there is nightlife,restaurants,shopping and other things to do. In other words, we don't want to be secluded. We received an offer from Sea Colours Hotel to stay for 50 euros a night. Is this a good offer? What does that translate to in US dollars? I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you very much.
