All the fieldtickets sold out so quickly in Holland that we decided to take a short holiday to Athens, to see the concert in Terra Vibe. We probably arrive on the evening of the concert at around 18:00 at our hotel, and we have to get to the Terra Vibe park (concert starts at 21:30). Preferable by bus, but we're not sure if it fits in the timetable of getting there in time? And if we should buy tickets up front (from who, where?).
Anyone able to help out here?
Coming to Naxos in September 2017 -fly into mykonos -flight due in 13:35 -what is the frequency of the ferries
Is it best to pre-book and what ferry companies operate this route
Can we catch the Bus X96 to the Athens Airport close to the Metro (or subway) station? Is this bus stop location the closest from Cruise Terminal A? Is this bus stop the start of the route to the airport? Can we buy tickets from the bus driver?
I will go to the Athens airport from the cruise port in Piraeus in November 2016. What is the best cost-effective means of transportation? How much would cost a taxi? Is it easy to take the subway from Piraeus to go to the airport?
Thank you for your comments.
We stay Portobello Royal hotel, west to Kardamena.
Want to rent a car for 1 day.
Please recomendations what to see and where to go,
Hi, just wandering if there any recommendations for children. We are hoping to stay at Maria Yiannis in Troulos and although this doesnt sound very child friendly the location looks superb. Are there any outdoor play areas / parks for children.
If not i'm sure we'll be fine building sandcastles ;-)
Hi, Can someone help us, we will be 5 all up. 2 Adults and 3 Kids.
Can we catch a Train From the Airport to Likopria ?
Thanks in advance
Hoping for your opinions on which area to stay in Corfu!
We have 4 nights in Corfu (July 9th - July 13th 2017).
We have 5 adults and 2 children (6 and 8 years old).
I have done lots of research but can't work which area to stay - it looks like there are many beautiful palces!!
What we would like:
- close to a beach
- close to tavernas
- 3-4 bedroom villa with private pool
We would also like to have a little explore of Corfu old town.
We don't need to be close to night clubs or late night bars.
Which town / area would be best, in your opinion for a group of 7 with a nice beach and nice village / tavernas?
I am wondering after a LOT of reading about Kassiopi...?
I have booked a last minute holiday to Crete 11-19 Oct 16, staying in Bali, and I'm looking for a guide(s) to show me the local historical sites and possibly climb to the top of the island.
I have 8-9 days to spend on the Greek islands and I have narrowed it down to Naxos, Santorini and Mykonos. Any comments on how many days you would spend on each? Also, what order would you recommend to do them in according to ferry schedule?
I arrive at the Athens airport around 10 am and I see that a lot of the ferries leave at 7 am for the islands. There are others that sail around 2 pm for Santorini but would get into destination port late at night which I would prefer to avoid. I therefore figured that I would stay the first night in Athens and then take the 7 am ferry the next day. My question is, can I purchase ferry tickets at the airport or can they only be purchased at Piraeus? I thought I saw on the website that you may be able to purchase online but you still need to have the tickets printed off at the port. True?
We will visit chania in November during our cruise (Souda port). Where is the tourist information center to get maps and information?
Hello; are there any places in Athens or near Athens flea markets and also garage sale.... etc? Especially How these things going on in there could someone explain? Thanks :)
Hi! I'm going to Ixia. I would like to know what the taxi fare might be from the airport to Ixia. Also what it might be from Ixia to Rhodos Town. Are there restaurants and shops at the airport?
As none of the buses in the KTEL timetable say they are going to Pyrgos can anyone tell what bus do I get from Fira to Pyrgos?
Its safe to buy a sim card on the metro stationd i see srelling there
anybody know where in the town the bus to the airport leaves from.im arriving by ferry
which is the
best car rental
We need to get to the airport early in the morning tomorrow (gotta be there by 6), and I was wondering if we can catch a bus to the airport from the Firostefani bus stop? Do they run that early?
I'm arriving at Lavrio port septembre 25 at 13 h. Is it possible to take à bus directlyto Athéna airport? If so, where and how much time it takes?
I plan to holiday in Agii Apostoli, to the west of Chania, for 7 days in September. I do not have a car.
What is the situation with public transportation (eg buses) if we want to travel along that coastline to the west of Chania? Is it for example reliable and frequent? And are the local taxis expensive?
In addition, if we want to go on day excursions to Agria Gramvousa Island and to Elafonissi Beach and Island, from Agii Apostoli, what is the best way?
Hi there. Will I be able to find walking sticks, such as tree branches, at the top of the gorge in Omalos, before I start the hike down to the sea? I really do not want to carry around expensive aluminum "ski poles" all over Europe. If not, should I take the "lazy hike" (going Up the Samaria to the narrow point, then returning down) the day before the downhill hike, so I can certainly find discarded tree branches?! And any advice re hiking is appreciated. I'm in my late 50s, and I consider myself an advanced beginner with good lower body strength. Thanks!
Stopping in Kotor, Montenegro and in Greece will be stopping in Argostoli, Athens, Corfu and Mykonos
Any suggestions on what to do for the day in each? or what are the must dos?
are excursions recommended or would catching a bus or cab to the attractions be good enough?
which places are easily accessible from the port(walking distance and enough do with out going on a tour or bus or cab)
TIA for your help :)
Hello I've just joined VT im holidaying in Parga last week sept,first oct looking for trip advice and what to see near by
We are a retired couple. Have been to Skiathos before and got around on the bus. This year we have a car to explore "Off the beaten track " Any suggestions for quieter beaches and Tavernas. We are based near Koukounaries.
hi, we are planing to stay in golden hotels and bungalows in marathon in september for 5 days and hotel and we will take the taxi from airport to the hotel, but we need to know how to use the bus near the hotel to reach athens city and what is the name of the nearest bus station,
My daughter (13) and I will be visiting Greece 27 September - 6 October 2016. This trip is more of an education/cultural experience rather than island hopping and beaching (which is something we'll do with the whole family in the next couple of years) . Not that we'll shy away from a day or 2 beaching this time round... :)
So here are a few questions.. would love to hear of any advise/suggestions/recommendations etc.. this is our first time and thought we'd do/see the following:
Start off or end in Athens (3 nights)
Do a 2 day guided tour to Olympia & Delphi (1 night) - any recommendations who could do this for us?
Visit Poros & Hydra ( can do 1 night on each or 2 nights on one of the islands)
Maybe Corfu for a couple of nights
Is this advisable? I will not be hiring a car, so will be relying on ferry's / public transport etc.
Is this a good combination? As my daughter loves Greek mythology, hence visiting the more ancient sites etc.
Your input will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
How can i get from athens aiport to delphi
We intend to travel in Macedonia by car but no greek car rental agency allow to drive to macedonia. What are the options to arrive from Thessaloniki air port to Ohrid?
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.
