      As it takes a long time to get to Zakynthos 6/7 hours each way, it is worth to go, or should I just go to the other islands whem i arrive to athens

    • 10 day itinerary for solo traveller 35 year old in Crete

      Crete Island Aug 17, 2016 at 6:49 AM

      Hi guys

      I am hoping that someone may be able to help me come up with an itinerary please.

      I am a single traveller, age 35 and I have just booked my flights to Crete for a ten day trip! Very exciting.

      I am struggling to come up with a viable itinerary for my trip and would love any advice from experts on the island.

      What I am after:

      I like a variety when on holiday, I like to cover a lot of ground and see lots but also have some beach/chill days inbetween. So I want to include a town, villages, the best beaches and harbours/ports.

      I love photography, village life and would love to ge some typical Cretian snaps.

      I love history, beaches, port towns, hidden gems such as old villages.

      I will be on public transport.

      I dont like mega touristy places but wouldnt mind seeing this for a small amount of time.

      Restaurants cafes and bars are a must.

      Happy to stay in smaller cheaper places rather than big hotels.

      Would prefer to stay near a beach for most of the trip.

      Want to include some typical Cretian villages.

      This is my base itinerary below, I have a number of days left over and I am unsure whether it is worth me going to Loutro for a few days?

      Really I would like to get an idea of the most scenic places to visit which arent completely 'dead'

      Will I have enough time in Chania and Heraklion or have i given them too many days?

      I have read about Chrissi Island and would love to have this in the itinerary, but perhaps stay somewhere in the south then head over.

      I have read so much and I am so confused by the suggestions, there are so many places to chose from! Any help is gratefully recieved.

      Thanks in advance :)

      Greece Aug 26, 2016 at 6:53 AM

      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!

      Parking in Thessaloniki

      Thessaloniki Aug 2, 2016 at 10:09 AM

      Hello VTers,
      We will stay a few days in Thessaloniki this month and we wonder where we can park the car. I know there are some open air parking lots but I don't know where. Are there parking meters? If so, how do they work? Closed parkings seem to be quite expensive, but perhaps they are safer... I would appreciate any tip, or any link to a website with information on parking (English or Greek).
      By the way, I am also looking for a leisure guide, to find out if there is a concert or any kind of event during our stay in the city. Any suggestion?
      Thanks in advance

    • Uber in Athens?

      Athens Aug 13, 2016 at 4:49 AM


      I know that you can use uber in Athens, but I was wondering if anyone has done so, and how was the experience? I know that they use taxis instead of personal vehicles, so I'm hoping uber works like it normally does in the US, where you only pay on your phone and don't have to deal with cash.

      Thanks in advance!

      Samaria Gorge

      Crete Island Aug 15, 2016 at 3:03 PM

      In the second week of October, we want to go to the gorge by either car or bus. We can take a tourist bus day trip, via to and from the site? And take the ferry, from Agia Roumeli to Sfakia, to meet the bus ride back to Chania, all in one day? Yes If we choose to drive to Omalos, does it become more complicated: staying the night in Roumeli, taking the ferry to Sfakia late the next day, staying overnight there, and then a cab, back to the car, on the third day? We are a couple in our late 50s, no kids. Thanks!

    • Meteora by car

      Meteora Aug 15, 2016 at 2:32 AM

      Hello everyone,

      We are planning to visit Meteora on 4th of July by car. We will be leaving Thessoloniki early in the morning and plan to be there around 9:00 or 10:00 AM. It's Sunday so all the monasteries are open, as far as I know. I've read many comments, so I know that 1 day is not enough to visit all the monasteries. But we have a packed schedule and we wanna see/do as much as we can in one day and stay overnight in Kalambaka or Kastraki. My question is : All the monasteries and caves are reachable by car ? Even if not, is there anybody to advise me a full day itinerary/route within Meteora to get most of it, car-foot combined. We are above average walkers and I am asking about driving just to buy us some time.
      Thanks in advance

    • Sunset cruises

      Santorini Island Aug 24, 2016 at 10:53 AM


      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.

      Responsible shop owners.

      by catchfab Online Now Oct 26, 2014 at 12:06 AM

      I recently went to Lindos, Rhodes. I purchased a knife depicting the knights of Rhodes and the shop owner adamantly assured me that anything under 60cm didn't have to be declared when coming back into Australia. I stupidly believed him. I did not get a receipt, but the shop was near the Estia cafe not far from where the donkey rides start. I think it was called Traditonal Greek handicrafts.

      Not only was the knife taken off me when I returned to Australia, but had I not declared it then I would be facing ten years jail for bringing in a prohibited item, not to mention being almost a hundred dollars out of pocket.
      There was only one shop that sold knives as I checked just about every other one to compare prices.
      My question is should shop owners in tourist destinations be accountable for false information?? What are we going to do once we return? We can't take the item back. I really wish I could give this owner a piece of my mind.

      Thanks for taking the time to read this..Anne

If I could find a virtual map of Lindos I might be able to find it but I cant, can you help please?
