      Bus from Tirana to Meteora

      Meteora Feb 13, 2017 at 12:48 PM

      I am hoping to take a bus from Tirana in Albania to the Meteora Monasteries in Greece. I think the towns near the monasteries are called Kalambaka (or Kalabaka) and Kastraki. Does anyone have any information on timetables, etc?

      Thanks in advance for any information, it will be very much appreciated.

      Corinth Canal

      Corinth Feb 13, 2017 at 11:03 AM

      First of all apologies if someone has already answered these questions. I reviewed all the reports I could find about the Corinth Canal, but some were quite old, so I am hoping to get the best current info.

      I am hoping to visit the Corinth Canal around late March or early April, preferably on a day trip from Athens using public transport, a bus or a train.

      My first choice would be to take a tour boat along the canal if there is one available from Isthmia or Corinth. Does anyone have any information on availability of canal tour boats? There was a youtube video clip of someone doing this sort of tour, but it is from 2009. I don't know if the tour is still available or where to get the boat if it is still operating.

      My second choice would be to see the canal from the bridge, but I'm not sure if the bus or the train would stop anywhere near the bridge. The bridge is about 9km from Corinth. Does anyone have a good suggestion for how to get to the bridge over the canal for someone using public transport?

      Thanks in advance for any information on this.

      Island recommendations for 2 weeks in the Cyclades

      Greece Feb 12, 2017 at 8:46 AM

      After 2.5 years of travelling in India, Australia and Southeast Asia, my boyfriend (33, British) and I (28, German) have now settled down in Berlin and want to explore some more of Europe. Hence we're very excited to be visiting Greece for the first time this year and are looking for some destination advice.

      We're flying to Athens on 7th June, then on to Santorini early on 8th June (my birthday), and back from Athens on 21st June. We're planning to spend around 3 days / 2 nights in Santorini and would probably like to visit another 2 islands in the Cyclades before heading back to Athens for the final 2-3 days. Is this feasible for a 2-week trip?

      I've checked out plenty of websites and have a few ideas but still unsure of which islands to include. We enjoy pristine, uncrowded (preferably not windy) beaches, local food, nature/scenery, some history/culture and some nightlife (bars rather than clubs). We could hire a car or scooters if required. I've included Santorini on the itinerary as I understand this is a must-see for first-time visitors to the Cyclades, but would also like to include some cheaper, less crowded places. Which islands would you recommend?

      Do we need to book hotels in advance or can we rock up with backpacks and find something decent on the day (Athens, Santorini, other islands)? What about ferries between islands, do we need to book these in advance? Can you recommend any affordable hotels with views of the caldera in Santorini? Is it easy to get public transport from the airport? Any advice relevant to our trip would be much appreciated.

      Thanks in advance!

      Best days to visit Meteora Monasteries

      Meteora Feb 14, 2017 at 10:22 PM

      I was wondering if any days are better or worse than others for visiting the monasteries at Meteora. For example, Sunday might be a bad day to visit, but there could be other days when the monks have a different routine to normal.

      We are to travel by ferry from Mykonos to Santorini in end sep 15. The two options are Seajet (Superjet) (0940-1140) and Hellenic Seaways, (Highspeed 4) (1440-1715). So as to spend an additional evening in Santorini, we would prefer the earlier Seajet Ferry. However, the internet is full of negative reviews about this. We are not so much bothered about the sea sickness issue which may have a greater effect on the Superjet being a smaller vessel. However, the issue of dependability and punctuality etc is of major concern to us. Are Superjets really all that bad or are they merely victims of bad publicity launched by competitors. I seek the help of fellow VT members to help solve the dilemma.

    • a location like this in Mykonos?

      by bigjim33 Online Now Nov 16, 2014 at 4:03 AM

      In the last summer I spent a few days in Santorini in the town of Kamari. The location was perfect: there’s a long pedestrian promenade along the beach with many clubs, restaurants and small hotel directly on it. It was very leasant to have drink in our hotel’s pool-bar facing the sea and the nice crowd walking on the promenade.
      I’m wondering if a location like this exsists in Mykonos or in any other Greek island! Do you know any?

      Jjust wondering if anyone out there can recommend BUDGET accommodation in Mykonos. (When I say budget - I'm thinking in the vicinity of $20-$50 a night room rate.

      My husband and I are planning on spending 2 months there next year (OR any other Greek Island for that matter - as long as there are gorgeous beaches, a bit of activity going, little night life, etc...) but we are on a fairly tight budget.

      We are very easy pleased - as long as the digs are clean, comfy and hopefully have a small kitchenette where we can make an occasional meal if we wish to ...

      I am visiting Mykonos during mid august and was wondering if driving is dangerous? I am renting a scooter but know stories from friends and other travelers that roads were not maintained for ages, there are not many signs about danger, and also not many police men to control drunk driver costing fatal accidents sometimes. What to expect? What about if I have an accident because of no signs, bad maintenance, bad lighting etc? I need to know the Greek law to be prepared for a lawsuit in that case...Could anyone provide me the law?

      From Athens to Mykonos

      Hi all, I need to be in Mykonos at the 5th or 6th of June, coming in from Amsterdam. Off course I can book straight flight from Amsterdam to Mykonos, but I think it saves money to fly to Athens and go from Athens to Mykonos, by boat or plane. What I checked till now is that there is only one flight a day from Athens to Mykonos and departs early in the morning. Now does somebody know if it is easy to purchase a ticket for the ferry from Athens to Mykonos and what are the time schedules and where can I buy these tickets. Thank you for any reply

      Hi There,

      I'm planning to go to Mykonos for the first time next June. My husband and I are Ibiza veterans and love the idea of Mykonos - but as we are in our 30's we also enjoy getting some sleep now and then! We want to stay somewhere stylish with a good choice of places to eat and bars in the evening.

      Have been looking at the Rocabella In Agios Stefanos but am worried this may be a little far out for us - what else is going on in Agios Stefanos? Is it just hotels?

      Looking for stylish/ affordable area with great food and restaurants and bars. Would love to stay somewhere we could watch the sunset every evening.

      Please advise people!!!!
