    • 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...?

      Greece Sep 26, 2016 at 7:14 PM

      I have 8-9 days to spend on the Greek islands and I have narrowed it down to Naxos, Santorini and Mykonos. Any comments on how many days you would spend on each? Also, what order would you recommend to do them in according to ferry schedule?

    • Bus x96 to airport

      Piraeus Oct 9, 2016 at 3:37 PM

      Can we catch the Bus X96 to the Athens Airport close to the Metro (or subway) station? Is this bus stop location the closest from Cruise Terminal A? Is this bus stop the start of the route to the airport? Can we buy tickets from the bus driver?

      Many thanks

      Skiathos Island Oct 4, 2016 at 12:48 AM

      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 ;-)

    • transportation between Piraeus and Athens airport

      Piraeus Oct 6, 2016 at 8:54 AM

      I will go to the Athens airport from the cruise port in Piraeus in November 2016. What is the best cost-effective means of transportation? How much would cost a taxi? Is it easy to take the subway from Piraeus to go to the airport?

      Thank you for your comments.

      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?

    • Laganas to Marathonissi in June?

      by missioncontrol Online Now Jun 4, 2014 at 6:21 AM

      My 17 year old is heading off on school leavers trip to Zante, staying in Laganas - she is well aware of its partying possibilities but a few of them are also interested in the non-party side to the island and this seems a little tricky to find out about. They are on a limited budget and are trying to find out the approx costs of a trip to Marathonissi or any other less busy beaches - all ideas welcome! Appreciate there are many boat tours available but these seem to be quite expensive and be maybe 3 hours or so where they are really just looking for a trip across and back? Also seems conflicting info - are boats allowed to land at this time of year because of turtle nesting?
      Thank you so much?

    • where's dennis ?

      by zads Online Now Jul 10, 2004 at 2:09 AM

      Does anyone know if Denis is still in alikanas/alikes. Ok .. a little vague I know, so here's a little more. Six years ago my partner and I spent a week in Alikanas, I think it was Alikanas, if you were stood in the sea looking back at the shore it was the resort to your left. Anyway, we spent most of our time at a great taverna on the beach,run by a guy called Denis. Surprise eh?. I can't remember the name but Oasis keeps popping into my mind. He had sun beds on the beach for his customers only and at that time he was creating a garden between the beach and the taverna with around six or eight tables for customers to use. Position.. Hit the beach off the what i think was the main track from the road and go left for a short distance, past the sun bed man in his hut and the jet ski guys. He looked like a lighter version of Pavarotti, or Brutus out of Popeye. Great guy, nothing too much trouble, even having no cash after spending all day and evening there. 'See me tomorrow' . Hope to be there again this summer but if we don't make it can anyone answer my question. Also, how much has Alikanas/Alikes changed in the past six years. Have the two become one? Dont see any holidays for Alikanas in the brochures. Cheers all , Zads.
