      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.

      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.

    • Sephardic history in Kastoria?

      Kastoria Feb 25, 2009 at 10:46 AM

      My great grandfather was born in Kastoria, and although he emigrated with his family to the U.S. in the early 1900s, I would like to visit this town as part of a trip to Greece this spring. I know that the Sephardic Jewish community in Kastoria was wiped out in the Holocaust, but does anyone know if there are any traces of their history still there? Cemetery, museum, neighborhood, etc? Thanks for your help.

      Where to stay overnight

      Prefecture of Kastoria Sep 26, 2003 at 12:01 AM

      Well, finally I'm going to Kastoria - after all those years;-) Just one detail that bugs me - hotel. I couldn't find any information online, that's why my question is to people who've been to this beautiful place - where did you stay? If I just show up some time Saturday noon, could I find a room at a hotel/guesthouse without a reservation. Thanks a lot in advance.
