Coming to Naxos in September 2017 -fly into mykonos -flight due in 13:35 -what is the frequency of the ferries
Is it best to pre-book and what ferry companies operate this route
As none of the buses in the KTEL timetable say they are going to Pyrgos can anyone tell what bus do I get from Fira to Pyrgos?
We need to get to the airport early in the morning tomorrow (gotta be there by 6), and I was wondering if we can catch a bus to the airport from the Firostefani bus stop? Do they run that early?
I was looking on Viator for Caldera Cruises, and for the sunset cruises with dinner, it's 70€, but someone on there sad not to book online, just book when you get to Santorini as the prices online are almost triple what they normally are.
My question is:
Is this true?
If I wanted to book when I get there, where do I go?
Does anybody know approximate prices on the different sunset cruises?
Also, will be looking to cruise on or around September 10, so as it is technically low season, am I safe to wait to book until I get there? Or is there a good chance that everything will be booked up?
Thanks so much, you guys are amazing.
Please guide me to choice best way?
I will be travelling to Santorini by ferry, which I will arrive at Athinios port. However, my hotel is located at Finikia.
I have checked the bus timetable online, but I could not find a bus stop at Finikia.
Could anyone please tell me which bus stop should I get down?
Hey guys!! I ll be in Santorini with 2 friends and we ll stay for 4 days. We wanna see the best and do things that are worth doing even if they are not mentioned in travel guides. For example what about watching the sunset frim a calmer place, with the view of the caldera but without the touristic mess and noise??
What about the beaches? We ll be staying in Fira, so which ones are the most appropriate for us if we dont have a car there? Are there regukar buses?
And of course I could really use every piece of advice and info about the island to avoid discomfort and to see and do beautiful things while we ll be there!!
Thanks in advance!!!
anyone else travelling solo to Ios between those dates? :)
Im going to santorini from 19-22 july and will be taking Aegean airlines, reaching about 6am. How do I take bus from airport to Megalochori?
How do we get around to different major villages from Megalochori?
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!!

Hi, we're visiting Santorini for the first time next week. We love visiting churches and I was wondering what the dress code was. Will crop trousers and t-shirts be OK?
Hi, my name is Sal Mason and me and my husband are staying in Firostefani next Tuesday for a week. We're hiring a car for the week and would love any recommendations of places to visit. We love archaeological sites, ruins, churches, cathedrals. We would also like any recommendations for tavernas, bars, restaurants, quiet beaches. Thanks.
Any recommendations for a great restaurant in both Santorini and Mykonos? between 3 - 5 star, thanks in advance.
Require best itinerary to spend 2 days & 2 nights in Santorini.
Shop in Thira selling glass yachts, what is the name of it.
Can anyone suggest a reliable company for car rental?
I ve read that some companies' insurance doesn't cover earth roads (??) and that's how you get to the nicest beaches!
Hi will be visiting Santorini next year in May for our 25th wedding anniversary and are wanting to stay in Imerovigli area, wanting feedback on Santorini Princess spa, and Pegasus, the position, views etc and if anyone has stayed in a bed and breakfast in Imerovigli as well, also thoughts on where they are positioned etc.
are there toilets anywhere
Hi! Me and 3 friends will travel to mykonos between 8-11june and we would like to visit santorini during this time! We find a beautiful yatch and our ideia is waking up early and depart for santorini... and comeback in sunset admiring the amazing view! The yatch has capability for 10 people and we need 6 people to join us in this adventure... The Price is 200 euros+ diesel ( round 1000euros) = 1200 euros total which is 120 for each one!
Anyone to join us? We can go 9 Jun. 10 or 11
I am struggling a bit with researching Paros for an upcoming trip beginning of July. Any help to clarify the following questions would be highly appreciated!
Public transport: I know bus transport in Paros is quite good. I have also read about a 'round the island' type coach / bus trip, but cannot find anything online. Any info on this? What about water taxis or small rental boats to circumnavigate the island?
Car / ATV rental: Considering renting a car or ATV to give us more freedom (stopping off at beaches we like, etc). Have been referred to ParosEuropeanRent cars & motorbikes... Any feedback on them? Any other recommendations on trustworthy operators? Opinions on public transport versus vehicle to visit various beaches / locations around the island?
Bicycles: I believe the island (particularly along the coast) is relatively flat. Is the island suitable for cycling? Are there dedicated cycling paths? Have safety concerns - narrow roads, heavy traffic etc.
Food: Paros appears to be highly praised as a foody destination, but most of the tips on VT seems to be pretty outdated. Any recent restaurant / taverna recommendations for good authentic Greek / Paros food?
Thank you very much!
We are planning to stay one week near Perivolos beach. We'd like to visit the island but my husband cannot climb on many steps, so we think about Taxis for transportation (we're a little scared from renting a car because of little narrow roads etc.) Do someone know about taxi's fare to visit most important places? Do they use taxameter? Do you know someone reliable and affordable? Thanks.
Hi, I would appreciate some advice on the above two hotels please. My husband, my 17 year old daughter and I will be going to Santorini this July. We want to stay in the Firostefani area but are having trouble deciding between these two places. Agali has a larger pool but the hotel has 30 rooms and I've read online reviews about mixed levels of customer service. Stefani Suites is a boutique hotel (4 units) which seems to be more attentive but it only has a small plunge pool. Santorini accommodation in July is quite expensive so we want to make the right decision. Thanks in advance for your info/comments.
Just wondered if people thought it was worth waiting to book a ferry from Santorini to Folegandros in late September until nearer the time or not? Sea jets are available to book now for an extortionate €44 each way for a 40 minute crossing but is there likely to be a conventional ferry which would of course be a fraction of the cost, running daily late September into October? I realise the schedules for them can be as late as August when they're released but does anyone know of an intended ferry schedule for that time?
We are a group of 8 people planning to visit Santorini this summer. We currently have the choice of 2 villas, one in Pyrgos & one in Oia. There are some young adults in our group who will want to get about and about independently to bars, restaurants etc, so which would be the best place to choose?
Also, is there an accessible beach in Oia?
Thank you in advance, Kath Hill
Does anyone know if there is a daily ferry available from Paros to Milos in mid to late September? I can't seem to find a schedule and have booked a hotel on Milos so not sure how to get there from Paros.
Thanks for any assistance!
I'll be chartering a yacht in the cyclades in March 2016 with the family (3 kids) and start wondering how the situation is there with refugees. I very recently heard that because of the high number of refugees on the islands near Turkey the government has started moving them onto other islands. Reading testimonies from locals, I don't want to go on holidays and end up having my children seeing dead bodies in the sea or any form of violence that is already happening on Islands like Lesbos or Samos.
Does anyone have feedback?
my wife and I are planning a week in Santorini next year. we like good food and lively nights. Any suggestions on where to stay please
