    • Budget camping for single person

      Prefecture of Chalkidiki Jun 29, 2016 at 3:56 AM

      Hello. Ive been looking for a place to camp in sithonia but i am finding it difficult to find something reasonably priced. I have heard you can wild camp in this area but i'd rather support the local economy if i can get something within my budget. I looked at the armenitis campsite but when i filled out the dates on the booking form it came to €80 for a week just for a tent location (nothing else included). When i viewed the price breakdown it seemed like they had charged for two adults when i am just one! Anybody camped here alone for half this price? Or can any other budget campsites be recommended. I would like somewhere preferably quiet, scenic and not too touristic. Thanks :)

      Insider Beach Info

      Corfu Island Jul 5, 2016 at 6:21 AM

      Hello VTers,

      I'm planning a trip to Corfu this month and seeking a must-see beach or two. We are staying in the north-west and want to avoid the most frequented places while still having access to an organized beach with chairs and umbrellas (or, if not, shade). As the lists online are extensive and we are only there a week, any recommendations of a place or two are welcome.

      (On Crete, voulisma beach was perfect, in case that's a useful reference point.)

      Looking forward to hearing people's favourites!

    • Q2: Paros in May

      Paros Jul 4, 2016 at 10:51 AM

      thinking of travelling to Paros for 7-10 days next may. Will be the last 4 or 5 days of May and then the same in June.

      Will probably be Nouassa or maybe Pariaki. How busy will these towns be.....will it be a little empty that early in the season? Nouassa harbour looks like a lovely place to go for a meal for example but will we be the only ones there?

      I guess the same applies for the respective shopping districts. Will they be open/will people be about. Ive been to places before that early and they have felt a little ghost towny.

      Sorry if stupid questions!!

      Thanks

      Corinth + Nafplio possible as a daytrip from Athens?

      Athens Jul 15, 2016 at 10:10 PM

      I'm heading to Greece this November and starting to plan out our itinerary. We are thinking about 7 days Athens (+ some daytrips from Athens) and 4 days Santorini. Planned daytrips so far are Aegina, Corinth & Delphi. So far Aegina seems totally doable as a half-day, Delphi a little far but doable as a full-day, and Corinth a reasonable half-day. With a little Google Maps research, however, I see that Nafplio/Nafplion is only about another hour west of Corinth.

      From what I've been reading, people suggest two days for Nafplio, but what I'm wondering is if it's possible to do a day trip to Corinth in the morning and Nafplio in the afternoon (or vice versa)? I don't really have set plans for what I want to do in Nafplio--just wander around and see the town and maybe the fortress. Is that doable? If so, what are my public transportation options between Corinth and Nafplio? How about hiring a car/taxi for the full day?

      Thanks in advance for any help! :)

    • Help with itinerary

      Greece Jul 23, 2016 at 9:25 PM

      Hi! My parents, Aunt, cousin and I plan to travel to Greece for two weeks early this October. I need some much needed help with the itinerary! Trip begins in Athens and ends in Santorini. This is what I have in mind at the moment. Athens- 3 nights, Delphi- 1 night, Meteora/ Kalambaka - 2 nights, Nafplio- 1 day, Chania (also visiting Loutro)- 2 nights, HERAKLION- 1 night, Santorini- 3 nights.

      1) I was wondering if 3 nights are too many for Athens?

      2) Is one day enough for Delphi?

      3) Is one day enough for Nafplio?

      4) Should I skip Heraklion? Isn't the Palace of Knossos the main attraction there? Considering we would have seen enough of ruins in Athens and Delphi?

      Any advice apart from what I have asked would be greatly appreciated!

      Does anyone know if there is a ferry on October 4 (Tuesday) from Samos to Mykonos. I kept on checking Greekferries.gr website, but it looks like they only have it till the last Tuesday in September. I am so worried because Oct.4 is less than 4 weeks away and I am now suspicious that maybe there is no ferry.
      I don't know whether to continue to wait not knowing if the schedule is published later or there is just no ferry, in which case, I should change my itinerary.

      If anyone of you know what the situation is is, please help me out with the info.

      Prefecture of Samos Aug 16, 2009 at 8:55 AM

      I'm trying to decide which prepaid debit card to take out for our forthcoming trip to Kokkari. My choice depends on whether I can use Mastercard in restaurants or will need to draw cash from an ATM, on a frequent basis, to pay our bills. The FairFX card has a better exchange rate but charges for ATM withdrawal while the CaxtonFX card doesn't have such a good exchange rate (yesterday it was €5.75 less per £500 than the FairFX one) but doesn't charge €1.50 per ATM withdrawal.
