    • Corfu - help with place to stay

      Corfu Island Sep 27, 2016 at 4:51 PM

      Hi there,

      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...?

      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 ;-)

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

      Athens Yesterday

      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?

      Ferry Tickets

      Greece Sep 26, 2016 at 7:10 PM

      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?

      Six days in the Peloponnese

      by pencho15 Online Now Jul 1, 2014 at 4:02 AM


      I'll be traveling to Greece at the end of july. While I have to be in Athens on august 1, I got an earlier flight and I will land in Kalamata on july 26, which was cheaper. Once I'm there I have decided to use the days before going to Athens to explore the Peloponnese peninsula.

      I understand Kalamata is a big city, but not particullary attractive, so I was wondering if this is the best place to stay or if it would be better for me to travel and find a hostel in another town. I am interested in knowing all the archeological sites, specially Olympia, and would like a place from where I can easily move around the zone. is it better to stay in one city and do daytrips from there? or is better to go moving along and spending a night or two in different places?

      Also which places do you recommend me to see, while history is my main concern, I am also open to any other kind of cultural attractions.

      best beaches

      by larazenn Online Now Aug 9, 2013 at 1:15 PM

      I will be in mostly Kalamata based around Messinia for 10 days from the beginning of september. I'm really very like to swim and sunbath in the beaches mostly pebbles and stones. I heard about the Foneas beach is perfect and of course I will be there. I'm asking if there are other beaches like Foneas (hidden paradise) around? I think transportation will not a big problem cause I also booked a car, so I can reach the places easily if I well informed and planned the schedule before...

      Thanks by now,

    • Vacation in Kalamata

      by MariaSZ Online Now Mar 4, 2011 at 4:36 AM

      I have been invited to join a cooking vacation near Kalamata (Agios Nicholaus) in Greece this August and was wondering if anyone can suggest which are the beaches to visit, if the area is touristic (I hope not) and if its more for couples or families, is it a younger 20's, 30-50's or an older crowd. Are the people who stay there mostly Greek, European, etc? I'd just like to get a feel for what it's like there.

      Any other information you'd like to share will be most welcome.

      The photos I've seen on the internet are wonderful but I have not found much more.

      Thank you.

      Kalamata to Athens Airport

      by nalahacjr Online Now Jun 17, 2010 at 9:18 AM

      Hello to all -

      My wife and I fly out of Athens at 14.30 on a Tuesday. I have looked at an Athens Long Distance bus schedule and it appears that buses to Athens leave at 4.45, 6.00, and 7.00. Do you think we can make it from Stoupa to Kalamata to Athens in time for the plane? I know it would be a push, but we are trying to have one last night in the Peloponnese, rather than spending it in Athens. Even if we had to get an early taxi from Stoupa to Kalamata or something other than the bus. Can we make it to the airport for our flight?

      Thanks for all the advice!
      - Ryan
