      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.

    • Budget camping for single person

      Prefecture of Chalkidiki Jun 29, 2016 at 3:56 AM

      Hello. Ive been looking for a place to camp in sithonia but i am finding it difficult to find something reasonably priced. I have heard you can wild camp in this area but i'd rather support the local economy if i can get something within my budget. I looked at the armenitis campsite but when i filled out the dates on the booking form it came to €80 for a week just for a tent location (nothing else included). When i viewed the price breakdown it seemed like they had charged for two adults when i am just one! Anybody camped here alone for half this price? Or can any other budget campsites be recommended. I would like somewhere preferably quiet, scenic and not too touristic. Thanks :)

      In a month my wife, son and I will visit Sarti Greece. Our son will celebrate his second birthday in Sarti, so I wonder, is there any good bakery, cake shop, where we can order birthday cake? It doesnt have to be in Sarti, we can take it or have it anywhere in Calkidiki, even Thesalloniki. We just want it to be tastefull, then pretty.

      If you have any suggestion, it would be convinient if you enclose links or give me directions to search shops on the internet.

      Chalkidiki - in which town/village to stay, what to do and visit and accommodation-reasonable price

      Prefecture of Chalkidiki Aug 12, 2010 at 2:49 AM

      Hi all VT's

      Please help me with some tips about Chalkidiki. I am going there with friends at the end of September but have absolutely no idea which town might be good to stay. It should be on the beach not inside the penincula. We are looking for reasonable accommodation and are quite flexible - campings, private accommodation, hotels, hostels - everything is all right as far as the price is reasonable.

      What are the biggest attractions except the monasteries. What is Chalkidiki known for and are there green areas?

      Many thanks in advance.

    • Transfer from Thessaloniki to Toroni, Sithonia

      Prefecture of Chalkidiki Mar 10, 2009 at 12:21 PM

      Hey everybody,

      I'm going to spend my holidays in Toroni this year. I'm arriving on Sunday, August 2nd 2009 at the airport in Thessaloniki. I want to go to Toroni by bus, is it right that the bus station of "KTEL Halkidiki" is no longer in the city of Thessaloniki but near the airport now? Does anyone know the address of the bus station? I want to go to the bus station by taxi, how long will it take and how much will it cost? Whether I can find a schedule for the busses to Toroni in summer nor I can find how much this will cost. I guess it will take about 3 hours to get to Toroni, is this right? I hope someone can help me :-)

      Thank you!

      Apartment in Polihrono with AC from May-August

      Im looking to rent a furnished apartment in Polihrono with AC from May 1-August.
      I will have a Medium sized dog with me so it must allow him as I'll be shooting a small film with him while in Halkidiki. My dog is a very well trained show dog from Los Angeles who's appeared in many movies & tv shows so he wont be a problem & he is housebroken. But we must have AC because his breed has issues with heatstroke.

      From Thessaloniki Airport to Chalkidiki, Kassandra

      Prefecture of Chalkidiki Jun 20, 2005 at 1:04 AM

      Hi everyone,

      I have a problem and I hope, someone can give me an advice:
      a friend of mine will go to Greece in July. Her final destination is Chalkidiki, Kassandra, but she will arrive at Thessaloniki Airport. The problem is that she will arrive fairly late (around 11 pm) and the travel agent told her that she will have to hire a car to get into town. I wonder, if that is true, because ususally, airports have their shuttle buses which run until very late.
      Does anyone know, if there are buses going to Chalkidiki around midnight or the early morning hours? Otherwise, my friend would have to hire a car for three days which should cost her around 180 Euro!!! I can't imagine that there is no other option to get into town?!?

      Many greetings,
