I'm trying to remember where on this island I purchased Olivia Hand Cream. We'll be visiting there next week and I would like to purchase several more tubes made by a Greek company called Papoutsanis. I remember we walked up and around the shopping area. The shop had a large assortment of Olivia products. Directions to this shop would be great.
I will be on a cruise that is docking in Katakolon, Greece. I am wondering what archaeological sites are in the area and can be visited besides the Olympic site. I have been there a few times and would like to see something different.
I am planning to take the morning train from Athens to Kalambaka on December 16th. I will get to Kalambaka at 1pm and the train back to athens will be at 5pm. I only have four hours for the monasteries. Can I do this? I don't mind going to only one or two monasteries and just get a view of the others. How long would it take my by walking/hiking/taxi to get to a good spot for the monasteries? Thank you.
Hello guys, I have a few questions..
1) As I'm going to Santorini in the future maybe Mid Dec, (I know this is not the best time but this is the chance as I want to experience Santorini firsthand and opportunities like this doesn't come too often), is there any ferries service from Piraeus to Santorini on daily basis? Is it safe? Are the schedules reliable this time of the year? Bcs flight is kinda expensive and I want save a few bucks
2) Accomodation. I personally loved Scirocco Hotel but I understand they're closed (damn!) during Nov/Dec so what are my best substitute for them? In terms of location and style (you know, those blue and white washed walls and great view of houses left, right, down). I'm really looking up to stay a place which are surrounded by other hotels but with a good direct seaview of course. Maybe something around 100Euro per night? I looked at several sights but sometimes the photos are a deceiving.
3) I noticed that there are none halal certified restaurants around Santorini, so I should go on vege diet or seafood (which is just as great), so can you guys suggest a few reasonable seafood joints in Fira.
4) Is there a way I could come from Istanbul to Athens by train? And from Santorini to Turkey via ferries? Is it a good option?
5)Thinking of spending 2D1N in Santorini, what should I really do for a first timer?
I know its quite a lot so to those who are willing to help hopefully God can repay your kindness or something like that. Thanks in advance!
I was in Istanbul bout 3 weeks ago and was talking to a Canadian couple who had travelled from Istanbul to a Greek Island about an hours ferry ride from Istanbul, they told me it was called "what sounded like Eos" and on my return home I have tried to find it and it looks like I did not hear correctly. They said they hired a car and drove around stopping where ever took their fancy. They also said they met quite a few Scandanivians who like to walk from town to town, just having finished the Camino Francis in Spain which I really loved, set me thinking about sort of doing the same thing, this might be my next big walk. I am sure there are other islands that would serve the same purpose but would like to know if someone out there knows which island they were talking about.
Just wondering about the logistics of heading to Greece in early January. Realistically I'd like to see Athens and also maybe Crete - does anyone have any advice/personal experience of traveling Greece in winter?
Also, is it possible to ferry from Greece to Italy during January?
Thanks in advance.
