    • 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...?

      Hi, just wandering if there any recommendations for children. We are hoping to stay at Maria Yiannis in Troulos and although this doesnt sound very child friendly the location looks superb. Are there any outdoor play areas / parks for children.

      If not i'm sure we'll be fine building sandcastles ;-)

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

      Athens Oct 23, 2016 at 1:13 AM

      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?

      We are landing in Skiathos at 14.00 in august and need to get to Volos. We are two adults and three-year old twins.
      The Hellenic ferry doesn't appear to sail until 20.00 and get into Volos at 22.40.
      Does anyone know any other ferries or water taxis we could use to make the crossing earlier?

    • boat hire for wedding

      by janinemcdermott Online Now Jun 5, 2009 at 5:35 AM

      Hi There,

      I am getting married in Skiathos in August and have been thinking about hiring a boat (for about 30 guest) for after our ceremony at the Bourtzi. We were hoping to have some music and drinks and snacks onboard and just take a short tour around.

      Do you know of any websites that I could look at or names that I can use of potential boats for this purpose? I was also hoping to get a rough cost before we go so that we can budget...I guess this might not be possible.

      Cheers for any help.

    • Athens to Skiathos?

      by loopyloooo Online Now Jan 2, 2006 at 9:06 PM

      Hello! I'm planning to visit Athens in May (for Eurovision, yippee!) and I'd like to pop over to Skiathos for a couple of days to see a friend who's gonna be working there. I was in Skiathos last year and was thinking about going on a trip to the mainland but I was ill and didn't even find out how much it would cost in the end! Has anyone done the trip? I think the most fun way would be to get a bus up north and then a ferry across. Getting a flight seems like a bit of a cop out and I imagine would be more expensive too. Anyone wants to meet up in Athens let me know!
