Fellow TTers: I'll be taking my 12-year-old nephew on his first trip abroad, and was thinking about doing something along the following. We'll be renting a car to keep travel times down a bit.
Day 1: Arrive Athens, drive to Nafplio via Epidaurus Theatre (time allowing).
Day 2: Guided tour at Mycenae, afternoon stroll around Nafplion or the Theater if we missed it;
Day 3: Nafplion Archaeology Museum, Palmidi, travel to Arachova (by way of Patras to avoid backtrack? Other suggestions for a…
I'm heading to Greece next week and planning to get around via KTEL buses. Everything I've read seems to indicate that if I just show up at the bus station an hour before the bus is scheduled to leave, I'll have no trouble getting a ticket. I'm still pretty worried about it given that it's peak tourist season and I imagine there are droves of people who will also be trying to travel from Athens to Delphi at the same time as me, for example. Has anyone ever arrived at the bus…
My husband and I are celebrating our 70th birthdays this autumn. We are asking for ideas concerning the two or three best islands for us to visit for 2-3 weeks in October. Suggestions pertaining to weather, beauty, sites to see and relaxation would be of interest to us.
does anybody know of any good 1 day or 2-3 cruise tours that leave from Santorini? I cant seem to find any. All of them appear to leave from Athens. Any thoughts? Thanks.
On 7th February 2016 we booked two double rooms through Expedia for the Hotel Byzantine, Rethymnon, Crete, Greece with check in: 11 March 2016 and check out: 13 March 2016. We received an email from Expedia (with our itinerary number) saying that our reservation is confirmed and that we don´t need to call to reconfirm.
On the 9th of March 2016 we received an email from Expedia.com verifying our stay at the hotel (with itinerary number).
On the 10th of March 2016 (just one day before our departure)…
We will be staying at a Hotel in Oia in Aug end. We are thinking of having a half day trip in the sea. Is this advisable; and what could be the best half day tour in the sea. May be to another island or snorkeling or just boating around the island. Any other suggestion to spend 3 days in Oia.

We will be staying for 3 days in Athens coming from Canada. We are thinking of taking a rental car for a day and drive to Delphi in the morning 9 am and come back by 7 pm. Is it doable. How is the driving and rental car costs. I mean it should not be a lot of stress. Another option looking is bus. Does it come back same day. Though we prefer car due to convenience and stopping on the way if find something interesting to view and eating etc. Any help.
How is the driving condition in Greece. What…
I have travelled over 50 countries outside of Europe without a partner. Now, it looks like I will be traveling with someone who has not been outside the US and is very concerned about the availability of toilet facilities particularly in Athens. We're both in our 70's. Since this is a big deal for her, its now a big deal for me and since its her first travel outside the US, I would like to avoid unnecessary and unpleasant surprises.
Thanks again for all of you who take the time to answer.
