    • 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...?

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

      Athens Yesterday

      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?

      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?

      To travel independently, not with a big coach tour, are there any companies providing small group tours?
      In addition to Knossos, I'd include another days excursion to Phaestos and Gortyn.
      I am single, so private arrangements are to be avoided if possible.

      Heraklion Apr 21, 2013 at 11:36 AM

      Hi! Will be travelling to Heraklion & Chania in early June with my wife & 12-yr old son. Need to quickly firm up the hotels.
      I've been told that the best place to stay in Heraklion is on the 25th August Street. Can someone recommend some hotels there? Or would I find better hotels elsewhere? My budget is approx. Euro150 per night.
      In Chania I've been told that we should be staying on the harbour... is it a good suggestion? Budget remains the same, i.e. Euro150 per night.
