    • 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...?

      I have 8-9 days to spend on the Greek islands and I have narrowed it down to Naxos, Santorini and Mykonos. Any comments on how many days you would spend on each? Also, what order would you recommend to do them in according to ferry schedule?

      Can we catch the Bus X96 to the Athens Airport close to the Metro (or subway) station? Is this bus stop location the closest from Cruise Terminal A? Is this bus stop the start of the route to the airport? Can we buy tickets from the bus driver?

      Many thanks

    • Children's play areas

      Skiathos Island Oct 4, 2016 at 12:48 AM

      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?


    • transportation between Piraeus and Athens airport

      Piraeus Oct 6, 2016 at 8:54 AM

      I will go to the Athens airport from the cruise port in Piraeus in November 2016. What is the best cost-effective means of transportation? How much would cost a taxi? Is it easy to take the subway from Piraeus to go to the airport?

      Thank you for your comments.

      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?

      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.

      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.
