    • How do you like Arillas?

      Arillas Mar 23, 2015 at 2:01 PM

      My family and I are thinking about spending one week to ten days in Arillas in late June. None of us have ever been to Greece, and we are just seeking a beautiful place to relax, play with our kids (ages 8 and 5), be on the beach, go to some nice restaurants, and also discover the area around Arillas. Could you tell me what you thought of your vacation in Arillas? Could you also tell me what kinds of things one can do in and around Arillas? Are there nice places or villages to visit nearby? I would be grateful for any and all advice and thoughts. How does Arillas compare to the rest of Corfu and vacationing on other Greek islands? Thanks for your help!

      Hi, we, a middle aged couple are planning to visit Athens on our way to Santorini and Mykonos. We arrive one afternoon, have complete day two in Athens and will depart for Santorini on day three. On our return again we arrive one afternoon and will have a complete evening to spend in Athens. Could anyone suggest an itinerary for our time. Specifically, I would like to know:-
      1. Is it worth taking an evening / night tour of Athens?.
      2. Can we take a walking tour in the Day.
      3. Is there a free walking tour. If yes the timings please.
      3. If we have done the above, what would be left to do on the second evening.
      4. Suggestions for good tours are welcome. We would not wish to have exclusive tours but would like to join other groups.
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi, We intend taking a Blue Star Ferry (Delos) from Athens to Santorini. One finds that there are Air Seats Lounges serial 1 to 5. Before we book our seats could anyone guide on:-
      1. The difference between lounges 1 to 5.
      2. Which have the best view while seated?
      3. Which lounge would offer the fastest exit? Does it matter in terms of time spent in exit?
      4. Needless to say we do plan to go on the deck while approaching Santorini. For this activity is there anything to chose between the lounges?

      Hi, I know the question has been put a number of times on the forum. Pardon me for repeating; just want to be doubly sure so that there is no hitch in our travel schedule. My wife and I are senior citizens and are travelling between Mykonos and Santorini in end Sep 2015. After reading suggestion so aptly given by fellow VT members, we have planned to take the Sea Jets ferry from Mykonos to Naxos and by Blue Star from Naxos to Santorini. We would obviously want to be fully confident on the travel schedule. Is there ANY reason why we should book in advance or can we be 100% sure of getting ticket from both ports prior to departure (other unforeseen situations of weather / ferry cancellations are of course understood).

      Travel from Kos airport to Lakitira suites

      Kos Island Mar 18, 2015 at 7:27 AM

      Is there a bus that goes past this the Lakitira Suites hotel from the airport?

      The hotel appears to be 4km west of Kardamena, not at Kardamena as shown by Google maps. This is a link of the possible routes. It may just be easier to hire a taxi, but I was hoping to master the public transport.

      Hey there,

      Firstly - LOVE this VT Forum - I always receive so much useful info...

      My husband and I plan to island hop through the Cyclades, Greek Islands from late July - mid-September 2015.
      We don't like to plan or book ahead, preferring to just take each day as it comes.

      1) is it possible to just turn up to an island off the ferry and get accommodation at that time of year?

      2) are there any recommendations of "must see" islands, other than Santorini and Mykonos?

      Thanks in advance

      Omonia square

      Athens Mar 29, 2015 at 5:52 AM

      Hello everybody,
      I will be in athens at the beginning of May. My hotel is at Omonia square and I would like to know what it's like right now. I know that everybody says that it's really dangerous, but it's no option for me to avoid it at night time, because my plane lands around 8 pm. After all the reviews, I'm a bit scared to walk around with my suitcase. My hotel is only 20 meters from the subway station. Does that make it a bit safer? I won't have to walk around very long. And does anybody have any tips for me to "survive" my first night there?

      I've heard there is a general strike going on in Greece, and that ferry simply doesn't work. Since I'm planning to go to Thassos with my family this summer, can anyone tell me more about this? Is it true that ferries do not operate, and if it is, is there another way to get to Thassos island by car?
