    • 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!

      I read Rick Steve's recent note about Monemvasia and the path to the top being under construction, do you have an update on this and when it is to be open?

      Thanks,

      Nafplio to Monemvasia in a day?

      by Annali-Floris Online Now Jan 24, 2011 at 6:03 AM

      Hi! We're busy planning our trip to Greece and can do with some help here.
      Will it be possible to drive from Nafplio via Mystras to Monemvasia in 1 day? Will 1 day be enough to spend some time at Mystras?
      And also, can we (after 2 nights in Monemvasie) then drive from there through the Mani to Dimitsana in 1 day? Or shall we have to overnight in the Mani?
      Please help as this will be our first visit to Greece.

      Getting here

      by roamer61 Online Now Jun 28, 2009 at 6:15 AM

      Can anyone tell me about this place? How to get here by Hydrafoil, does it operate in May? Can it be done in a day? Is it even worth visiting? I do have an interest in Byzantine History, Art and Architecture.

    • People wanted for taking part in an experiment at Monemvasia Castle

      by gian_d Online Now Oct 13, 2005 at 2:40 AM

      Hi all,

      My name is Giannis. I have constructed (as part of my PhD degree) an intelligent mobile guide system for the Monemvasia Castle. I am looking for people to test it. If you happen to be in Monemvasia at the Middle of November and you want to participate please email me at idoumanis@yahoo.gr. The tour with the system is completely free, all i need is your feedback on the system.

      Also, can someone tell me where can i find the emails, telephone numbers of the HighSchool, and the mayor of Monemvasia?

      Thanks

      Getting to Monemvasia from Kythira?

      by AcornMan Online Now Feb 4, 2005 at 6:41 PM

      Is it possible to go directly from Kythira to Monemvasia by ferry? If so, can you give me a link to a web site with more information? If not, what is the easiest way to get there? Again, a web site would be helpful. Thanks.
