    • Help in planning to get to Terra Vibe Park for Depeche Mode concert 2017

      Athens 1 hours ago

      All the fieldtickets sold out so quickly in Holland that we decided to take a short holiday to Athens, to see the concert in Terra Vibe. We probably arrive on the evening of the concert at around 18:00 at our hotel, and we have to get to the Terra Vibe park (concert starts at 21:30). Preferable by bus, but we're not sure if it fits in the timetable of getting there in time? And if we should buy tickets up front (from who, where?).

      Anyone able to help out here?

    • Corfu - help with place to stay

      Corfu Island Sep 27, 2016 at 4:51 PM

      Hi there,

      Hoping for your opinions on which area to stay in Corfu!

      We have 4 nights in Corfu (July 9th - July 13th 2017).

      We have 5 adults and 2 children (6 and 8 years old).

      I have done lots of research but can't work which area to stay - it looks like there are many beautiful palces!!

      What we would like:

      - close to a beach

      - close to tavernas

      - 3-4 bedroom villa with private pool

      We would also like to have a little explore of Corfu old town.

      We don't need to be close to night clubs or late night bars.

      Which town / area would be best, in your opinion for a group of 7 with a nice beach and nice village / tavernas?

      I am wondering after a LOT of reading about Kassiopi...?

      Hi, just wandering if there any recommendations for children. We are hoping to stay at Maria Yiannis in Troulos and although this doesnt sound very child friendly the location looks superb. Are there any outdoor play areas / parks for children.

      Ferry Tickets

      Greece Sep 26, 2016 at 7:10 PM

      I arrive at the Athens airport around 10 am and I see that a lot of the ferries leave at 7 am for the islands. There are others that sail around 2 pm for Santorini but would get into destination port late at night which I would prefer to avoid. I therefore figured that I would stay the first night in Athens and then take the 7 am ferry the next day. My question is, can I purchase ferry tickets at the airport or can they only be purchased at Piraeus? I thought I saw on the website that you may be able to purchase online but you still need to have the tickets printed off at the port. True?

      Chios sightseeing

      Chios Island Aug 15, 2013 at 6:46 AM

      I want to spend a day at Chios Island arriving there with the 0930 erturk ferry on Friday 06 September 2013. In the few hours on the island (ferry departs Chios at 1800) I would like to visit Cave of Olympi, Mavra Volea beach, St Apostles Church in Pygri, Panagria Krina Church in Vavili, Noa Moni Monastery and maybe if time permits have a peep at Homer's Rock and Daskalopetra.
      How much will a taxi cost if it is hired for the day to visit all these places. Otherwise what is the alternative possible way to visit these sights, as I do not like to hire a car. I've read that buses are infrequent as since the places I want to see are scattered I will loose a lot of time.

      Thanks for your assistance.

    • Seaside Hotel/Apartment in Karfas?

      Chios Jul 25, 2011 at 3:58 PM

      I am looking for a seaside hotel or apartment in Karfas. Anybody have any good recommendations?

      I gather from these forums that Karfas is a quiet seaside town with enough tavernas to occupy your evenings. Are there any other similar towns on the island of Chios? Any similar lodging recommendations in those towns?

      Many thanks.

      Hello, I'm arriving in Chios (The cruiseline spells it Khios) on 10/23 by cruise ship and only staying for the day. I've been reading the Chios Forum for things to see and do and didn't find an answer to my question so I decided to post them here.

      We are four persons, mid 40's, we won't have a car and will not rent a scooter. We'd like to go to a beach, swim and have some local food and beer; easy peasy right? Are there beaches in the town of Chios or nearby?

    • Stay in Chios town or other village on Chios

      Chios Jun 6, 2009 at 3:18 PM

      I will be with my bf in Chios from 18 Aug to 27 Aug. We like to stay in a place that is central and fun for night time, but not to noisy or commerical, and sitting out in the morning. Chios town seems not so pretty and a little commerical - not beautiful like other port towns (like Syros town, or Symi town). Kombos looks appealing and so does Mesta, but are they too quiet - no restaurants for night, etc, or would we need to drive to Chios town?

    • travel around Chios

      Chios Oct 13, 2008 at 7:34 AM

      My husband and I are traveling to Chios for one day, off a cruise ship in November. We are in our early 60's and well traveled (never been on a cruise before) We do not usually like group tours, so we thought of going off on our own. How do we get around the island to visit the villages? I am particularly interested in local arts, textiles, and folk traditions. Of course we both love local food.
      How do we hire a driver for the day? What villages do you think we should visit and where should we stop for a good local meal?
      Any suggestions welcomed.
