    • Help in planning to get to Terra Vibe Park for Depeche Mode concert 2017

      Athens Oct 23, 2016 at 1:13 AM

      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?

      To travel independently, not with a big coach tour, are there any companies providing small group tours?
      In addition to Knossos, I'd include another days excursion to Phaestos and Gortyn.
      I am single, so private arrangements are to be avoided if possible.

      by Uttio Online Now Apr 21, 2013 at 11:36 AM

      Hi! Will be travelling to Heraklion & Chania in early June with my wife & 12-yr old son. Need to quickly firm up the hotels.
      I've been told that the best place to stay in Heraklion is on the 25th August Street. Can someone recommend some hotels there? Or would I find better hotels elsewhere? My budget is approx. Euro150 per night.
      In Chania I've been told that we should be staying on the harbour... is it a good suggestion? Budget remains the same, i.e. Euro150 per night.

      Is there a reasonable way to get from Heraklion, Crete to Tel Aviv on June 24, 2007? We would prefer not to fly back to Athens and make multiple stops on the way, thereby using up a full day to get there. We did find one non-stop on Expedia, but it leaves in the middle of the night.

      Are there small plane flights? charters? Ferrys? We are a family of 4.

      It looks like I'll be flying into Heraklion from Athens and arriving in the early evening. I would like to spend one night there, then see Knossos and the archeological musuem before catching a bus west to Rethymnon. Can someone recommend an inexpensive hotel in Heraklion? If possible I'd like to be within walking distance of the museum and the main bus stop that is located by the waterfront. It must be a private room though, no dorms. I have emailed Hotel Lena asking about their rates but they have not sent a response yet. Thank you.
