    • 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.

      Ferry Tickets

      Greece 8 hours ago

      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?

      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!

      Hi! We're busy planning our trip to Greece and can do with some help here.
      Will it be possible to drive from Nafplio via Mystras to Monemvasia in 1 day? Will 1 day be enough to spend some time at Mystras?
      And also, can we (after 2 nights in Monemvasie) then drive from there through the Mani to Dimitsana in 1 day? Or shall we have to overnight in the Mani?
      Please help as this will be our first visit to Greece.

      I have heard this island has wonderful beaches - are they as good as they say. I have also read that it is very crowded. We would be going in June - will it be ok then and where is it best to stay? I have tried looking up accomodation on the web without much sucess. I am going with two friends to stoupa and thought a two day break on elafanissos would be good. I would like to pre book a room if possible.
