      Bus from Tirana to Meteora

      Meteora Feb 13, 2017 at 12:48 PM

      I am hoping to take a bus from Tirana in Albania to the Meteora Monasteries in Greece. I think the towns near the monasteries are called Kalambaka (or Kalabaka) and Kastraki. Does anyone have any information on timetables, etc?

      Thanks in advance for any information, it will be very much appreciated.

      Corinth Canal

      Corinth Feb 13, 2017 at 11:03 AM

      First of all apologies if someone has already answered these questions. I reviewed all the reports I could find about the Corinth Canal, but some were quite old, so I am hoping to get the best current info.

      I am hoping to visit the Corinth Canal around late March or early April, preferably on a day trip from Athens using public transport, a bus or a train.

      My first choice would be to take a tour boat along the canal if there is one available from Isthmia or Corinth. Does anyone have any information on availability of canal tour boats? There was a youtube video clip of someone doing this sort of tour, but it is from 2009. I don't know if the tour is still available or where to get the boat if it is still operating.

      My second choice would be to see the canal from the bridge, but I'm not sure if the bus or the train would stop anywhere near the bridge. The bridge is about 9km from Corinth. Does anyone have a good suggestion for how to get to the bridge over the canal for someone using public transport?

      Thanks in advance for any information on this.

      Island recommendations for 2 weeks in the Cyclades

      Greece Feb 12, 2017 at 8:46 AM

      After 2.5 years of travelling in India, Australia and Southeast Asia, my boyfriend (33, British) and I (28, German) have now settled down in Berlin and want to explore some more of Europe. Hence we're very excited to be visiting Greece for the first time this year and are looking for some destination advice.

      We're flying to Athens on 7th June, then on to Santorini early on 8th June (my birthday), and back from Athens on 21st June. We're planning to spend around 3 days / 2 nights in Santorini and would probably like to visit another 2 islands in the Cyclades before heading back to Athens for the final 2-3 days. Is this feasible for a 2-week trip?

      I've checked out plenty of websites and have a few ideas but still unsure of which islands to include. We enjoy pristine, uncrowded (preferably not windy) beaches, local food, nature/scenery, some history/culture and some nightlife (bars rather than clubs). We could hire a car or scooters if required. I've included Santorini on the itinerary as I understand this is a must-see for first-time visitors to the Cyclades, but would also like to include some cheaper, less crowded places. Which islands would you recommend?

      Do we need to book hotels in advance or can we rock up with backpacks and find something decent on the day (Athens, Santorini, other islands)? What about ferries between islands, do we need to book these in advance? Can you recommend any affordable hotels with views of the caldera in Santorini? Is it easy to get public transport from the airport? Any advice relevant to our trip would be much appreciated.

      Thanks in advance!
      Nicole

      Greece 16 hours ago

      We plan to visit Greece in early April. Of course the islands are on our itinerary. Can anyone local advise us if we need to reserve ferry tickets before we fly there, ir we can buy on spot on the day we travel in order to allow flexibility?

      Best days to visit Meteora Monasteries

      Meteora Feb 14, 2017 at 10:22 PM

      I was wondering if any days are better or worse than others for visiting the monasteries at Meteora. For example, Sunday might be a bad day to visit, but there could be other days when the monks have a different routine to normal.

    • Transport from Katapola to Egiali at 3am

      by Jaala Online Now Aug 8, 2011 at 3:59 PM

      Hi,

      We are visiting Amorgos in early Oct. We arrive at Katapola port at 2.50am...but we are booked to stay over at Egiali (unfortunately this is the only ferry running on this day).
      Does anyone know the best way to get there at the time of the morning? Will there be cabs available? I'm assuming car rental wont be open at that time of the morning?? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!! Many thanks!!

    • Amorgos Island - accomodations

      by robin2562 Online Now Mar 23, 2008 at 3:37 PM

      I'll be traveling alone to Amorgos for the first time at the end of June. Can anyone recommend an inexpensive place to stay in Aegialis? I don't need luxury, just a clean place. Since the ferries don't get in until after midnight I'm afraid to look for accomodations once I get there.

      Thanks,
      Robin

      transportation to amorgos

      by perfectly_zen Online Now Jul 16, 2007 at 6:04 PM

      hello people! i wish someone could help me...I´m dying to visit amorgos in september, but it seems to me, according to the guides, that ferry boats are a bit difficult there. For instance, i would like to go to amorgos from paros or naxos, and then go from amorgos to santorini. is that possible? And also, how long would it take? can someone advise me on transportation to this island?

      thank you so much in advance!

      cheers1
