    • 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!

      -- Eurycleia

      by bsatthebeach Online Now Sep 28, 2010 at 2:23 AM

      I was recently, on September 19th or 20th, in Greece on a cruise and visited Olympia. Because I added the Archiological Museum to the day I was unable to purchase anything from the shops located by the ship as I needed to return to the ship. Is there a way to find certain items on the intenet or by writing to the shops. I am looking for women's Olympia t-shirts among other items.
      Can you help me with this?

      by canadadel Online Now Apr 12, 2010 at 2:01 PM

      We are 5 seniors who will be arriving in Katakolon by cruise ship on Sunday September 12th of this year. Our time there is limited . . .the ship docks at 7 am and we leave at 2 pm.
      Does anyone know if it is feasible to go from Katakolon to Olympia by train? Can train tickets be bought in Katakolon? Do the trains run on time? Is it a long walk from the port to the train station? Is it a long walk from the train station in Olympia to the historic sites?

    • Katakolon to Olympia by Train

      by purrfect16 Online Now Sep 24, 2008 at 12:24 PM

      Hi All! I'm also doing a cruise, and unfortunately, we're only in Katakolon from noon - 7. In researching, I found a train that runs to Olympia.
      olympia-greece.org/katakolon...
      Has anyone taken this? Since the last train leaves Olympia at 3:42pm, we'll only have 2 hours there. Is this enough time?

      We will be sailing from Bari, Italy to Patras, Greece, and will have a few days to explore enroute to Athens. We'd like to know how you'd recommend travelling around the Peloponnese area, as if we can, we'd love to see Olympia, Monemvasia and Mycenae.. The Diakofto-Kalavryta railway sounds fantastic, too, if we take the train across. Suggestions?
