My girlfriend and I will both be 18 by the time summer 2017 comes around and we have been thinking about travelling. Santorini is the place we would like to go to the most. My girlfriend has never traveled, period, and I have never traveled alone. My main question is, what are some tips that you would give to us for our first trip on our own? Mainly regarding booking and transportation once we get to Greece. I have no idea where to even start when it comes to planning or booking a trip. Any…

Hello!

My husband and I are considering spending the majority of July and August 2017 in Greece. We are low/mid budget travelers interested in history, hiking, and snorkeling (not partying or luxury stuff). Destinations would be Athens, the Cyclades, and all over the Peloponnese and the north. I'm aware that the summer is the high season, but it's the only option for our schedule. My question is about the need to book accommodation well in advance. It's complex to plan and pre-reserve 2 month's…

Hi

I hear conflicting info on whether the tap water on these islands is ok to drink. Is it too salty, but otherwise safe? Or are there issues with microbes that will make people sick?
I know there are municipal springs and taps on Tinos and possibly Naxos, but I don't know the locations of all of them in the main town on each.
I will be bringing a group of people, and I don't want to make them buy bottled water if I can avoid it, but I also dont want them to get sick!
Thanks

Hello,
I am traveling to Greece on 22 September. I plan to be in Athens for a few nights and then go to an island. I am thinking of the Cyclades because I really want to see the whitewashed houses (just one of those images I have always wanted to see). I am a solo traveler on a low budget and am looking to eat delicious food, take nice walks and be in the water as much as possible. I would love to snorkel if there is good snorkeling someplace. I prefer quieter places that have a more "regular…

Hi

I've planned a few days in Nafplio in September, but I'm uncertain about transportation options around the area. I'll be coming by bus from Athens, won't have a car. Can I get to Epidauros, Mycenae, Tiryns, and Nemea by bus as day trips from Nafplio? (each as a separate day trip, probably?) And if so, what is the bus company, is it KTEL or another company? And is there a good tourist office in Nafplio where I can get inforamation on the area?

Thanks very much!

I have seen on some websites that the tours to Delos stop running in September but we will be there in October and wondering if there are any tours or ferries that we can take from Naxos to Delos in Oct.
Current Plan:
Inbound: Tuesday, Oct 11, 10.45am ferry from Santorini that arrives in Naxos at 12:15pm.
Outbound: Friday Oct 14 at 2:55pm to Heraklion

We would like to do the Delos trip on either Wednesday Oct 12 of Thursday Oct 13.
I have already emailed a bunch of travel agents that I found after…

Hi all and thanks in advance for any thoughts, however random.

Mid-october to mid-december I want to go Crete and spend 2 months there whilst finishing my dissertation. I'd like to write for 5 hours in the morning and then go for a walk/swim/do a language exchange/look at something in the afternoon and finish the day by writing in the evening. I'll probably rent a room or small appartment for the 2 months. I'm into food, making friends, architecture, history and so forth so places that are…

Hi everyone!
Will be riding from Istanbul to Igoumenitsa from which I'd like to catch the ferry to Italy. Initially I thought of just taking the fastest route (route E90/92), but now I have a couple of days to spare. So perhaps someone can recommend a route/trail, perhaps a must see place etc...? Thanks in advance!

Mike

Hello everyone,
I did a cursory search on this but I didn't see anything and I'm kind of pressed for time, so I apologize if this has been addressed elsewhere, and feel free to post links if so!

A friend and I are renting a car for three days, and doing the loop down the coastal road and up through the Innahorion area. I was thinking we would stay for two nights on the coast (maybe Falasarna area and Sfanari or...?), and one night in one of the nine villages, but there isn't a whole lot of info…
