We are 2 students (couple) and plan on visiting Greece at the start to mid of September for 10 days. We want to book tickets through Ryanair to Athens and look for places to stay through airbnb. We are on a bit of a budget (around 400-500 euros per person including the place to stay) and looking for a nice (maybe old?) town/resort to stay in with a easy way to get there (train/bus etc.) and close to a sandy beach. Visiting wise, would be nice if there were 1-2 ruins/monuments nearby. Would…

Hello, we want to hire a car for just over 2 weeks from Athens Airport, returning it there. the cheapest I see on Travelsupermarket is £194 (doesn't help with Brexit!) - this seems a bit expensive but we do want something reputable. Any advice?

Thanks.

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…

Hi everyone,

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.
