    • Transport from and to Agii Apostoli

      Crete Island Sep 12, 2016 at 1:43 AM

      I plan to holiday in Agii Apostoli, to the west of Chania, for 7 days in September. I do not have a car.

      What is the situation with public transportation (eg buses) if we want to travel along that coastline to the west of Chania? Is it for example reliable and frequent? And are the local taxis expensive?

      In addition, if we want to go on day excursions to Agria Gramvousa Island and to Elafonissi Beach and Island, from Agii Apostoli, what is the best way?

      Thank you.

      Hiking the Samaria

      Crete Island Sep 11, 2016 at 10:58 AM

      Hi there. Will I be able to find walking sticks, such as tree branches, at the top of the gorge in Omalos, before I start the hike down to the sea? I really do not want to carry around expensive aluminum "ski poles" all over Europe. If not, should I take the "lazy hike" (going Up the Samaria to the narrow point, then returning down) the day before the downhill hike, so I can certainly find discarded tree branches?! And any advice re hiking is appreciated. I'm in my late 50s, and I consider myself an advanced beginner with good lower body strength. Thanks!

      Thinking of renting a car for our trip to Crete end of June. Arrive in Chania, followed by Rethymnon and Heraklion. What will parking be like at that time? Will I get free parking roadside? I believe Chania has two large public parking areas but fees are charged hourly? Any daily / overnight parking available?
