      I will be on Skyros for 1 week, then go by ferry to Kymi on Evia.
      My destination is Karystos.
      I planned to stay 1 night in Chalkida, as there will be no busconnection to Karystos from Kymi.
      Or will it be better to spend 1 night in Eretria ?
      Will the bus from Kymi to Chalkida / Athens stop in Eretria ?
      Will the bus from Chalkida to Karystos stop in Eretria ?

    • Sunset cruises

      Santorini Island 12 hours ago

      Hi!

      I was looking on Viator for Caldera Cruises, and for the sunset cruises with dinner, it's 70€, but someone on there sad not to book online, just book when you get to Santorini as the prices online are almost triple what they normally are.

      My question is:

      Is this true?

      If I wanted to book when I get there, where do I go?

      Does anybody know approximate prices on the different sunset cruises?

      Also, will be looking to cruise on or around September 10, so as it is technically low season, am I safe to wait to book until I get there? Or is there a good chance that everything will be booked up?

      Thanks so much, you guys are amazing.

    • 10 day itinerary for solo traveller 35 year old in Crete

      Crete Island Aug 17, 2016 at 6:49 AM

      Hi guys

      I am hoping that someone may be able to help me come up with an itinerary please.

      I am a single traveller, age 35 and I have just booked my flights to Crete for a ten day trip! Very exciting.

      I am struggling to come up with a viable itinerary for my trip and would love any advice from experts on the island.

      What I am after:

      I like a variety when on holiday, I like to cover a lot of ground and see lots but also have some beach/chill days inbetween. So I want to include a town, villages, the best beaches and harbours/ports.

      I love photography, village life and would love to ge some typical Cretian snaps.

      I love history, beaches, port towns, hidden gems such as old villages.

      I will be on public transport.

      I dont like mega touristy places but wouldnt mind seeing this for a small amount of time.

      Restaurants cafes and bars are a must.

      Happy to stay in smaller cheaper places rather than big hotels.

      Would prefer to stay near a beach for most of the trip.

      Want to include some typical Cretian villages.

      This is my base itinerary below, I have a number of days left over and I am unsure whether it is worth me going to Loutro for a few days?

      Really I would like to get an idea of the most scenic places to visit which arent completely 'dead'

      Will I have enough time in Chania and Heraklion or have i given them too many days?

      I have read about Chrissi Island and would love to have this in the itinerary, but perhaps stay somewhere in the south then head over.

      I have read so much and I am so confused by the suggestions, there are so many places to chose from! Any help is gratefully recieved.

      Thanks in advance :)

      Parking in Thessaloniki

      Thessaloniki Aug 2, 2016 at 10:09 AM

      Hello VTers,
      We will stay a few days in Thessaloniki this month and we wonder where we can park the car. I know there are some open air parking lots but I don't know where. Are there parking meters? If so, how do they work? Closed parkings seem to be quite expensive, but perhaps they are safer... I would appreciate any tip, or any link to a website with information on parking (English or Greek).
      By the way, I am also looking for a leisure guide, to find out if there is a concert or any kind of event during our stay in the city. Any suggestion?

      Greece in Late September

      I a seasoned European traveler but this will be my first time in Greece. I am looking at going in late September into first week of October. I thought I would start with a few days in Athens to hit the typical locations that you must see the first time in Athens. But then I would like to head out to the islands for a bit of R&R. I like to be fairly active and will do some hikes and generally wander around as I am not one for a schedule. Any suggestions of which islands to check out, things to do and places to hand out with more locals than tourists. I am familiar with the islands that everyone knows such as Corfu, Mykonos and Crete but would not limit myself to them. Always looking for that diamond in the rough.

      Samaria Gorge

      Crete Island Aug 15, 2016 at 3:03 PM

      In the second week of October, we want to go to the gorge by either car or bus. We can take a tourist bus day trip, via to and from the site? And take the ferry, from Agia Roumeli to Sfakia, to meet the bus ride back to Chania, all in one day? Yes If we choose to drive to Omalos, does it become more complicated: staying the night in Roumeli, taking the ferry to Sfakia late the next day, staying overnight there, and then a cab, back to the car, on the third day? We are a couple in our late 50s, no kids. Thanks!

    • Meteora by car

      Meteora Aug 15, 2016 at 2:32 AM

      Hello everyone,

      We are planning to visit Meteora on 4th of July by car. We will be leaving Thessoloniki early in the morning and plan to be there around 9:00 or 10:00 AM. It's Sunday so all the monasteries are open, as far as I know. I've read many comments, so I know that 1 day is not enough to visit all the monasteries. But we have a packed schedule and we wanna see/do as much as we can in one day and stay overnight in Kalambaka or Kastraki. My question is : All the monasteries and caves are reachable by car ? Even if not, is there anybody to advise me a full day itinerary/route within Meteora to get most of it, car-foot combined. We are above average walkers and I am asking about driving just to buy us some time.
      Thanks in advance

      Trip to Greece

      Greece Jul 29, 2016 at 4:55 AM

      Hello VTers,

      We are planning a trip to Greece next month and I have a few questions.

      1. We will fly with Aegean airlines, if possible with hand luggage only. Are they very strict in this sense? Will I be able to carry a bag besides a small suitcase?

      Once in Greece we will rent a car and go across Macedonia. There are some "must see" places such as Thessaloniki, Pella, Vergina, Philippos, Kavala, Xanthi... But we dont have a concret plan for every day.

      2. We would like to take a boat trip around mount Athos. Is it easy to find tickets from Ouranoupolis?

      3. We read recently a report about some excavations in Estagira. Are they worth a visit?

      4. We would also like to do some trekking and visit some picturesque villages. Epiro and the Zagorohoria must be wonderful, but I am afraid this would mean long drives. Could anyone recommend some places in central Macedonia instead?

      Although we are doing our research, I would appreciate your suggestions.

      Thanks in advance

    • Getting from Delphi to Meteora area.

      by windygal Online Now 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

      Ok, here is the question. How much time does the site deserve? I am history and archaeology person.
      1 tour said 1 hour for the museum and 45 minutes at the site itself. Most 1 day tours give 2-3 hours, splitting the time between the museum and the site. Also, none of the 1 day programs go to the Sanctuary of Athena.

      Hi everyone,

      We are going to Greece 08/31 (arrive 9am)- 09/07 (leave at 11am) and we want to drive to Delphi from the airport, then to Meteora from there and then back to Athens to visit acropolis. Do any of you know how long/safe these drives are (Airport to Delphi, Delphi to Meteora, and Meteora to Airport). I'm also a little worried about driving at night if the roads are dangerous mountain roads :) Also would 1 night in Delphi and 1 night in Meteora be enough to at least see a couple of the main areas? I know more time would be much better but we don't have the time available. We are going to Santorini for 2 nights so we don't have too much time left. We might drop Meteora but we don't know when/if we will ever be back to Greece so we would really, really, love to see that beautiful place. Also, do I need a special driving license to rent a car there?
      Thank you everyone for your help :)

      How to adopt a kitten from Delphi???

I have to go back to Athens in a couple of weeks so I was wondering if anyone has ever done anything like this. I know you need to have a vet check them out a month before you come to the US (which would be a challenge).

      I know this sounds crazy, but I thought I would try. Does anyone take care of them or feed them right now? It would be great to help this kitten that was so friendly. Thanks!

      And what about ticketing? From another post at the Athens forum I have learned that you can't by tickets in advance, so I will be at the bus terminal around half (?) an hour prior to departure. Can you already by a roundtrip ticket in Athens, or is it again only sold in Delphi?

      We are arriving in Athens and then travelling to Delphi and staying for two nights. We want to go to Arachova which is about 6 miles away. As we don't have a car is there any way we can get there like hiring a bike etc??? Also as we are in Greece for a week is there any other places people can recommend we see and stay while there.

    • Cruise chip Katakolon - how to get to beach

      by cayosusa Online Now May 29, 2007 at 7:19 PM

      Not sure if I'm on the correct board. Apologies if needed.
      Our ship is stopping in Katakolon. The big excursion is Olympia which we do not care to go to. I have heard that there is a beautiful beach Kourouta nearby. Does anybody know how to get there? Are there taxis at the port? Approx price to beach? Will we have trouble getting one back?

      Anything else suggested for a shore day at Katakolon? Many thanks!

    • nafplio to delphi by transit

      by springstone2 Online Now Apr 20, 2007 at 8:17 PM

      Do I need to take the bus back through Athens and change buses (and bus stations) to get from Nafplio to Delphi? Or is there a better route?

      This will be on Wednesday in late May if it makes any difference.
