      Relaxing, quiet,

      Crete Island Jan 27, 2016 at 4:23 AM

      We're two active, mid 50's who like a relaxing holiday is small, local places by the sea. Crete is our plan for 2016. Ideally, somewhere with some bars and restaurants and a lack of nightclubs! We plan to travel in September, and go self catering if possible. We're not high maintenance, so long as the place is clean, comfortable and close to amenities, we're good to go. We like to walk, cycle, use local transport and generally explore. We've had a couple of suggestions, Sissi being one. Most of the reviews I read, though, are quite a few years old. Anyone visited recently, got any suggestions?

      My wish list (but realise I can't have everything) is: Clean, self catering apartment, sea/harbour view, local/small town/village, bars/tavernas, supermarket, local restaurants.

    • Getting from Delphi to Meteora area.

      Delphi Jan 8, 2016 at 2:28 PM

      I didn't realize that it would be so hard to get from Delphi to Meteora. I have been reading, and it seems that our best bet would be to try to get the (:53 train from Levadia to Kalambaka. That means that we need to get a bus that would allow us lots of time as it seems that we also need to find a taxi to get us from the bus station to the train station. One question is whether anyone knows what times buses leave Delphi ( guess I should try to find a schedule) and two, this I can't find out. Will we have a hard time finding a taxi in Levadia?

      Thanks so much for any info. Elaine

      Athens to Marathon by bus

      Hey there, I'm planning to go from Athens to Marathon next month, by bus. I read that I have to take the bus named 'Marathon' at Mavrommateon street, is that right? Do you have the updated rate? Is the bus final stop in a walking distance from The Tumulus of the Athenians or should I drop off anywhere else to reach this site? I heard that some drivers do not speak english and are not up to help that's why I'm worried

      Should I book the ferries now?

      Greece Jan 18, 2016 at 1:22 AM

      Visiting Greece end of June start of July. Have been researching ferry connections between islands on and, which both give me ferry options for my selected dates. Would you recommend I book these now, or wait? Will they sell out if I don't reserve them now, or will there be more connections available as we approach summer?
      The same questions obviously also refer to flights.
      Plan on flying from Athens to Crete and taking the ferry to Santorini, Paros and Mykonos before returning to Athens.
      Another question: is it recommended to finalise all transportation before booking accommodation?

    • 10-12 days Mainland Greece

      Greece Feb 2, 2016 at 12:52 AM

      Hi, our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids 12yrs and 9yrs) will be in Greece for approx 3.5weeks. We plan to spend 2 weeks on the Greek Islands (including Ios to visit a relative as well 4-5 days in Crete).

      That leaves us approx 10-12 days to see the Greek mainland. We will be flying in and out of Athens. Preference to use trains/buses but we can hire a car if that is everyone's recommendation. Any suggestions for itinerary, must see places, where to stay or what to do are appreciated. Any good family friendly destinations would also be good. We are open to all suggestions :)

      Thank you for your help and advice

      Can anyone please give me advice on visiting Greece in April?

      Greece Jan 28, 2016 at 5:16 AM

      Hi, I have never been to Greece, so this is new territory for me. I am hoping to visit Greece at the beginning of April this year. I have very limited time (8 days in total) and my arrival and departure dates are inflexible. However, I am hoping to build in some flexibility during the eight days.


      So, what I would like to know is, taking into account that it is April i.e. low season, how much flexibility is there with booking ferries and accommodation a day or two before going out to one of the islands like Santorini?


      My thinking at the moment is to arrive in Athens and to spend one day/two nights there, and then to get an idea of what the weather is going to be like for the next couple of days. If the weather is quite OK, I would like to book/get on a ferry and head out to an island for a few days. I will need to book accommodation as well, which I would need to do in Athens.


      My tentative itinerary looks something like this, but it depends on the weather:

      • Tuesday: Arrive late afternoon / overnight Athens
      • Wednesday: Day in Athens / overnight Athens
      • Thursday: Travel to an island, preferably Santorini, using Blue Star Ferries
      • Friday: Santorini / overnight Santorini
      • Saturday: Santorini / overnight Santorini
      • Sunday: Travel to Athens using Blue Star Ferries / overnight Athens
      • Monday: Open day / flexi day
      • Tuesday: Open day / flexi day
      • Wednesday: Day in Athens / overnight Athens
      • Thursday: Depart Athens am


      What I am certain of, no matter the weather, is to be in Athens the Wednesday, because I depart Thursday morning.  I do not want to be on an island on the Wednesday only to find myself stuck becaue of bad weather. 


      I would appreciate any advice on this matter. 

      Many thanks

      Bus: Thessaloniki to Sofia

      by GroundhogDave Online Now Jul 22, 2014 at 11:01 AM

      Haven't posted it yet. Anything else I should add?

      My wife and I are going to be in Thessaloniki in late September and from there, we are heading to Sofia. I see that there is now train service between the two cities, but I think the bus still looks to be shorter and arrives earlier, which is favourable for us.

      I have a few questions about the bus: 1. Where exactly do you catch the bus? Wikitravel says 'You can catch this bus if you continue on an imaginary line at the end of Maria Luisa street. It meets in front of the "cafe" and just a few meters to the left of the entrance to the WC.' Is that correct?

      2. Generally, how is the bus travel on this line? Any idea on how many washroom stops it makes?

      3. We arrive in Thessaloniki four days before departing to Sofia. If we pick up tickets when we arrive, will there likely still be some available? Where do we purchase these tickets?

      Thanks in advance!

      Best area to stay in?

      by GroundhogDave Online Now May 27, 2014 at 6:00 AM

      My wife and I (late 20s) will be in Thessaloniki for four nights in mid-September. Wondering what would be the best area for us to stay in. Interested in seeing the usual sights, as well as hitting up restaurants, nightlife, and just generally experiencing the culture. We usually rent apartments or stay in penions/B&Bs etc. Walkability/access to transport a must.

      Side note: Greece will be Karlie's 30th country visited so would like to have a special stay there!

      I don't necessarily need reco's for a specific place (but if you have one, that's great), but more just a great neighbourhood or street. Advice on streets to avoid is also appreciated! I'm a light sleeper so don't want to stay directly on a busy main road.

      Hoping to catch a ferry from Thessaloniki or Kavala to Lesvos on Sunday, April 13. From my calculations, that Sunday would be a day that the ferries DO run... But I wouldn't bet the price of a hostel stay for 2 on it! :) It is unmercifully difficult to find information about options and timetables, etc, even when one goes into the ferry office at the port of Thessaloniki, which I did--they said to call back on Friday but we caught a bus to Toroni instead. Trying to decide when to head back up...

      Anybody have any insight into the murky depths that surround the ferry situation?

      by Staara77 Online Now Jan 22, 2014 at 6:15 AM

      Hello folks,

      I will be travelling to Thessaloniki in early June and I'm very much interested in areas around this city that have a connection with Alexander the Great.
      I will be in Thessaloniki for four days-before heading up to FYROM for a few days.
      So far I have seen the option of going to Pella, Vergina and Aigai, and I wondered what were the best options to organise a visit to such places.

      I am planning to spend a day and maybe a day and a half in Thessaloniki-the main reason for me going to Salokini is to visit areas connected to Alexander the Great.

      Could somebody please tell me which of the areas I have mentioned are close to each other, or does some company organise a trip that covers all these areas in one day?
      Personally I would prefer to not rely too much on a fully guided tourist trip, I would prefer to be independent of a guided tour.

      Could somebody please give me idea of how much a trip to the places I have mentioned cost-it's just that I am on some kind of budget, and would prefer to know how much money to put aside for these trips to the areas connected with Alexander the Great.
      Or are there any buses that go around these areas perhaps?

      Thank you for reading this, and I look forward to hearing from you,
