      From Skyros to Karystos on Evia end of september

      Greece Jul 28, 2016 at 7:15 AM

      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 ?

      Thank you !

      Insider Beach Info

      Corfu Island Jul 5, 2016 at 6:21 AM

      Hello VTers,

      I'm planning a trip to Corfu this month and seeking a must-see beach or two. We are staying in the north-west and want to avoid the most frequented places while still having access to an organized beach with chairs and umbrellas (or, if not, shade). As the lists online are extensive and we are only there a week, any recommendations of a place or two are welcome.

      (On Crete, voulisma beach was perfect, in case that's a useful reference point.)

      Looking forward to hearing people's favourites!

    • Q2: Paros in May

      Paros Jul 4, 2016 at 10:51 AM

      thinking of travelling to Paros for 7-10 days next may. Will be the last 4 or 5 days of May and then the same in June.

      Will probably be Nouassa or maybe Pariaki. How busy will these towns be.....will it be a little empty that early in the season? Nouassa harbour looks like a lovely place to go for a meal for example but will we be the only ones there?

      I guess the same applies for the respective shopping districts. Will they be open/will people be about. Ive been to places before that early and they have felt a little ghost towny.

      Sorry if stupid questions!!

      Thanks

      Greece in Late September

      Greece Jul 26, 2016 at 8:49 AM

      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.

      Trip to Greece

      Greece Yesterday

      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

    • Help with itinerary

      Greece Jul 23, 2016 at 9:25 PM

      Hi! My parents, Aunt, cousin and I plan to travel to Greece for two weeks early this October. I need some much needed help with the itinerary! Trip begins in Athens and ends in Santorini. This is what I have in mind at the moment. Athens- 3 nights, Delphi- 1 night, Meteora/ Kalambaka - 2 nights, Nafplio- 1 day, Chania (also visiting Loutro)- 2 nights, HERAKLION- 1 night, Santorini- 3 nights.

      1) I was wondering if 3 nights are too many for Athens?

      2) Is one day enough for Delphi?

      3) Is one day enough for Nafplio?

      4) Should I skip Heraklion? Isn't the Palace of Knossos the main attraction there? Considering we would have seen enough of ruins in Athens and Delphi?

      Any advice apart from what I have asked would be greatly appreciated!

      Corinth + Nafplio possible as a daytrip from Athens?

      Athens Jul 15, 2016 at 10:10 PM

      I'm heading to Greece this November and starting to plan out our itinerary. We are thinking about 7 days Athens (+ some daytrips from Athens) and 4 days Santorini. Planned daytrips so far are Aegina, Corinth & Delphi. So far Aegina seems totally doable as a half-day, Delphi a little far but doable as a full-day, and Corinth a reasonable half-day. With a little Google Maps research, however, I see that Nafplio/Nafplion is only about another hour west of Corinth.

      From what I've been reading, people suggest two days for Nafplio, but what I'm wondering is if it's possible to do a day trip to Corinth in the morning and Nafplio in the afternoon (or vice versa)? I don't really have set plans for what I want to do in Nafplio--just wander around and see the town and maybe the fortress. Is that doable? If so, what are my public transportation options between Corinth and Nafplio? How about hiring a car/taxi for the full day?

      Thanks in advance for any help! :)

      Hi! I would need a place to be from 12.7-27.2, in one week that is. Anyone have any ideas? I've checked the hotels and the cheapest is 30e/night, so if I could find something any cheaper it would be fantastic.

      I've heard that you can sleep over at the local peoples houses, is that true? Anyone knows how to do this?

      I'll buy a drink to whoever can find me a place..

      Thanks in advance!

      Life in Katerini

      by Pincho Online Now Aug 31, 2004 at 4:11 PM

      Hi!I'm from Spain and I will go in december to Katerini. I will work there for 6 months and I have been surfing the Net trying to get some information about the city and the Pieria region :) but I haven't found many things. I would like to know how is the nightlife in Katerini, and the cultural life there. Is the beach far away from the city centre and is there any bus to take there? And also I wanted to know if it's reasonable to go to Thessaloniki only for one day and get back to Katerini at night... How's the weather there? Is it very cold in winter? I will stay on Christmas there so I would like to know if it's easy to meet people there, go out, etc... I don't know, I will be there for 6 months and I just have sooo many questions!!!hehehe If someone could help me please! Thanx a lot for all!
