    • Early summer holiday.

      Greece Jan 11, 2017 at 3:05 AM

      Sorry to hear this site is shutting down.

      I had an incredible summer honeymoon in Switzerland thanks entirely to commenters on this forum. I'm really grateful.

      This question is very broad but I thought I might get lucky again!

      Hoping for a may/June family holiday this year.
      Traveling with a three year old and a one year old.
      Beach, hotel, pools, nature, good food, an old town nearby.
      We really want it to be child friendly with food and drink readily available but not too big a complex.
      We'd love to visit a Greek island, also considering Italy and France, I'll post over there too.

      Many thanks if you have any thoughts!
      Emma

    • Kefalonia or not?

      Greece Jan 1, 2017 at 4:40 AM

      Dear VT Fine Folk:

      Anyone here spent much time on the island of Kafalonia (aka: "Cephalonia") in the Ionian Islands (& Sea).
      Any advice?
      For, say, a one or two week stay in the spring -- is Lixouri or Argostoli best? Looks like Argostoli has a loud,
      busy airport near downtown? Or Not?

      Perhaps Zakythos (aka: "Zante") just to the south of Kefalonia is better?

      Thanks ahead of time for all & any tips!

    • Is the 'Ruins of Olympic' self accessable from Katakolon?

      by daniel_cw_cheung Online Now Mar 27, 2004 at 9:21 AM

      We will be in Katakolon for a day from a cruise. From all that I can research, Katakolon seems to have really nothing to see. If I want to plan my own trip instead of joining the cruise's excursion, is it possible to have a DIY trip? How is the transportation there? Also I read people mentioning a place call Pyrgos, is it worth going too? Thanks for any information in advance.
