    • 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

    • Shop info

      by Arilu24 Online Now Jul 8, 2013 at 3:28 AM

      I was in Poros some years ago.
      I bought a silver ring from a shop whose owner was a German lady whom was living in Poros for many years.
      Could you tell me if that shop is still there?
      If so,you have a number or email for it? The name?
      The jewelry shop I am talking about, was located to the right after you get off the little boat from Galatas, passed the cafe and going toward the little alley.
      Thanks

      Poros beaches THAT bad?

      by Rojo72 Online Now Apr 14, 2007 at 1:07 PM

      Hey guys,

      I'm going to go on a one week vacation to some greek island this summer and the ONLY possible week is 1st week of July. Money is an issue too and I've found a charter ticket to Poros in the Sporadic islands. It seems alright and it's close to both Athens and the peleponese so that I can do some day-tours.

      From what I read the beaches are supposedly not very nice, but are they really THAT bad? ANY other island would be about 100€ more expensive so...

      Also... should I take the charter ticket or try to arrange something by myself as far as accomodation goes do you think? And if so...Spetses, Poros, Ydra or Egina?

      Take care!
      Roger
