ok, my turn for a change. though I assume I might be able to work out some chunks myself, with the Greek regulars on this branch belonging to the best informed and most helpful members, it seems a missed chance not to ask for support.
situation: two adults and two small kids, flying into Athens in early October and out of Mykonos 12 days later. emphasis is less on historical sites and hiking yet more on family vacation and beach, though not purely. what we like in beaches: sandy. not much…
Would anyone know how (or if) I can get from bus station in Athens (arriving from Patra) with some public transport down to the port of pireus?
Thanks for hints :)
We're heading to Mykonos in September and I'm seeking accommodation advice.
I've been told we want to be close to the town of Mykonos and we like to stay in funky, offbeat accommodations with cool, relaxed owners. Although we like to have fun we're not looking for a crazy, party party...rowdy place. Although nothing wrong with that we're just a bit long in the tooth for it.
Maximum budget is around $150 euros, although we'd prefer to keep it around $100 euros.
Any advice would be…
Hi All - we are on a RTW trip and are currently travelling across Europe in a campervan. We will be finishing in Athens and need someone to drive it back to the UK.
If you are interested, please respond. Ideally over 30s as it makes the insurance much cheaper. You would get use of the camper and our equipment for free and could take a couple of weeks driving it back.
It would need to be collected from us in Athens between the 1st and 5th October.
I will be visiting Thessaloniki in september and am interested in buying a geological hammer and a pocket lens. Can someone reccomend a shop that sells such stuff? I can't find nothing on the internet
Going to Kárpathos in. A few days for a week of heat and warm sea, escaping this year's horrible Danish summer. Main objective is to relax, but I cannot lie on the beach or by the pool doing nothing for a week. There isn't much literature out there about Kárpathos.
Has anyone been there and do you have any advice on sights or little local fishing towns that might be worth a visit? I already know about Olympos and of course the main town og Pigidia.
I'm travelling with my parent's (60+) and my…
We are two women in our late 50's visiting corfu for a beach holiday for 2 weeks end of Sept. We want somewhere were it is quiet, but with also a bit of night life (bars, restaurants etc) and a sandy beach. Somewhere that there is not too many families (as it is Sept there will probably be few families anyway). can you recommend the North/ west of the island and if so where.
My partner and I are heading to Greece/Athens in a couple of weeks and I'm seeking some help with accommodations. More specifically, I was wondering if anyone has had a postitive experinece with Airbnb, espcially a non-smoking. In my reserach when it comes to non-smoking units in hotels the general consensus seems to be 'good luck with that'. :)
Otherwise, also looking for accommodation that is close to the city core, tourist destinations and public transit/metro stop. We really enjoy our…
I have been searching for a traditional/adventure small group boat tour to Greek islands including Santorini. I have tried the usual group adventure tour companies - Exodus/Explore etc. but to no avail. As there will be a child with us I thought this would be less stressful than having to book ferries and find accommodation in each place. Can anyone help?
