      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.

      youtube.com/watch?v=...

      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.

      Nafplio questions

      Nafplio Feb 20, 2016 at 2:15 AM

      Hi,

      My wife and I have several days off from work on the first week of April and we looking for a new destination. We have a 5 month old baby and for that reason we do are not doing to several eastern European cities we want to visit as we afraid it will be to cold for the baby.
      A Cypriot friend of mine recommended me about Nafplio and we intending to come especially from Israel for 3-4 days stay.I have several questions if you don't mind:

      1. Is the first week of April is nice time to visit? The weather is nice and everything at the old city is open?
      2. Do you think we will have difficulties to travel with a baby at the old city as there are many stairs, etc?
      3. The train from Athens is working? What is the best way to get there?
      4. We are not looking for lying on the beach but to hang around in a city or a small town, enjoy city landscape and restaurants. Do you believe it is a good destination for us? Is it sounds reasonable to travel from Israel for 3 nights in Nafplio?

      Thanks,
      Ori

They also had rings in the same way, and in the entrance door were some plates on which were written things like: want breakfast in bed? sleep in kitchen and other funny things.

      Within my itinerary, I included Nafplio because I'd like to see the town and also then visit Epidaurus and Mycenae. I wouldn't want to rent a car to move around, I was looking for the option of moving with buses instead.

      Hi all
      need some help in finding a guide to show our family around Nafplion, Mycenea and Epidaurus.
      We are arriving in August (I know, the heat) on board a cruise.
      Our time is limited 0700-1300 - but our children LOVE Greek mythology and we want to make the most of our visit.
      Cruise trips spend too much time at the shops - not enough time at the sites.
      family of 4 - 2 adults/2 kids
      Should we just hire a local taxi - but that's full of risks as well -- bit Iffy, huh
      many many thanks

      Camping close to Nafplio

      Hello to All -

      My wife and I will be coming to the Nafplio area in late June by bus from Athens with nothing but a couple of backpacks and a tent. We are looking for a campsite that is close to Nafplio. Doesn't have to be big or anything special, just a place to set down our tent and sleep. We are planning on moving around a lot during the day and not being so much at the campground. I have read through some of the posts and see that Triton II has been recommended and a campground called Lefkas which I have been unable to locate. I was wondering if anyone else had any suggestions, and how easy it is to get from these campsites to Nafplio and other surrounding areas without a car. Thank you!!

      We will be visiting the area from April 1-11 and have just learned that the Greek holiday runs the week before and after Easter. Question is: in light of the Greek people vacationing in the area during this time, should we pre-book all of our stays throughout the Pelopponese? Other than pre-booking our Nafplio stay, we were going to make last minute bookings. I want to spend time in Monemvasia but have been informed that the minimum booking at Hotel Malvasia is 4 nights during Easter break. If we do stay there that long, what can we take in for day trips.

      Nafplio Oct 25, 2009 at 9:12 PM

      Hello Wise Ones,
      Thank you for your assistance. May I now present my itinerary for your opinions?

      April 1 - Athens to Nafplio - by bus

      April 1,2,3,4 - 3 days/4 nights in Nafplio (hotel booked) - touring by bus

      April 5 - Rent Car in Nafplio - drive coast to Monemvasia, spend 1 night

      April 6 - Explore Monemvasia and Dirou Caves, drive north to Mystras, spend 1 night

      April 7 - Drive east to Koroni, Methoni and Pylos, spend 1 or 2 nights

      Drive North to Stemnitsa, Dimitsana, spend 1 or 2 nights

      I'm thinking of staying somewhere closer to AThens the last night so our drive isn't long/stressful. Any ideas?

      April 11th - Drive to Athens Airport, drop off rental car there. Flight leaves Athens at 1:30 pm, Sunday

      I didn't plan on booking accommodations anywhere 'til we get there (other than Nafplio) using a mobile phone.

      There will be 2 drivers to help with that task. Is this itinerary overdoing it?

      I appreciate all advice. Sincerely, Carol
