rent car in internet this summer in August, on arrival at Mykonos airport we are told that, since the plane had delayed about an hour, the reservation PAID IN FULL FROM ITALY, no longer valid era, so they were left with no car and no refund, not even partial.
we had another hiring out at our expense.
This means taking people by the neck !!!

HI everyone! My boyfriend and I will be leaving for Greece in may this year and we are starting to plan our itinerary. We need your help though because there is way too many beautiful places to visit and we honestly don't know where we should go. Here's the thing: we only have around 10 days, we are a young couple and we love backpacking (so we have a small budget and we love to discover not too touristy places... although we know Santorini seems like a MUST!). Obviously, we want to see some of…

Hi All,

I'll be visiting Athens in 2 weeks time, arriving on a Sunday afternoon and leaving on Wednesday evening and staying near the fruit market. I've read varying things about the opening hours of the main historical sites during winter (some sites say the close at 2pm, others 4pm) does anyone know if all of the historical sites operate the same opening hours at this time of year and generally when they let the last people in?

One further question - with regards to the ticket that allows…

Hi Travelers,

I'm going to be traveling to Greece solo in early June for a few days, on my way to meet a friend in Tehran. I've never been and am looking for somewhere off the beaten path that is not crazy far away from Athens. I know there are amazing islands 15+ hours away but I am looking for something under 3-4 hrs away by ferry.

I'm a pretty seasoned traveler, an artist, mostly looking for breathtaking landscapes, have no interest in night life, and just want to get a taste of Greece…

Hi all,

Myself and girlfriend are planning on backpacking some of the greek islands in the summer.

We have 6 weeks and we are looking for traditional Greece, good local food and drink with little tourists, lots of sightseeing and quiet relaxing beaches.

My initial thoughts are to either train it or fly to Athens and spend a couple of days sightseeing their followed by a ferry to a good starting point for island hopping.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Me again -- I've posted here and in the Turkey branch before booking the trip we now have planned for mid-summer 2016, which consists of fly into Istanbul (spend 1 week there), fly to ATH and drive Nafplion, Kardamyli & Deep Mani (2 weeks), Athens (3 nights), fly back to US via connection at IST. Following the recent tourist-directed suicide bombing in Istanbul's Sultanhamet Square, and a difference of views about how to respond, I've agreed to prepare a fallback plan such that if between now…

Can anyone suggest the best area to stay in Athens for art, culture, food? I don't want to be in a loud party area. Also what is the best way to get from Athens to Santorini in April? I get sea sick so I don't want to take a long ferry ride. Thank you.

Hi all,

Just a quickie - how long does it take to get from Edem to Syndagma using the tram?

p.s. do you recommend the Paleo Faliro neighbourhood - is the beach good? Or is Glyfada better for the beach?

Thanks,

MC

We will be traveling to Athens at the end of May - early June, first spending a few days in Athens (apartment already rented) and then going on to Tinos to attend a waiting. After Tinos we plan to visit one or two islands before flying out from Athens. If we end in Santorini and take an early morning flight from there to Athens that arrives at 9:30am, is that enough time to get our international flight from Athens at 1:05pm? We'd rather spend our last night on an island rather than an airport…

Hi,

My friend and I are doing a Europe trip and will be going to Greece mid July. I'd love some info from experienced travellers on where would be the best places to stay (that aren't overpriced!) We are thinking of booking through Airbnb rather than hotels/hostels. We also want to experience a bit of the Greek party scene during our stay but mainly want to explore the beaches and islands. We are planning on staying a week and a half, also love some guidance on which islands are the best to…
