We are planning to go to Sparta / Delphi from Athens in May. Seems there's no online reservation for the bus tickets.
Is there anybody who's tried KTEL ? How can we book the tickets ? And what's the most convenient way to the bus station KIFISSOS & LIONSSION from Syntagma ?
Hope we can get some advice from friends who have tried the same route ~ ~
Me along with family planning a vacation in Greek islands. We want to do another island along with Santorini.
Right now thinking for Crete. But I guess Crete is about mostly historical places ?? Is it so ??
We are not much interested in swimming & Historical places or Museums much.
Our interest is in scenic beautiful places.Nice beaches .We love to take photographs.
Zykonothos Beaches - I loved the picture. But from my reaserch understood that its not posssble to combine…
Dear Traveler. I really had a bad experience with EuropeCar near Athens Airport. It is the first time I write this time of comment, but I believe it is necessary. The issue spoilt a whole day of my vacation, would have cost me a lot of money if I had not taken the full insurance initialy, and caused me anxiety for the four days after the incident ( I was wondering if they would put a big charge on my credit card, without my consent ).
I reserved a car online, many months prior to departure. The…
I've recently been to these two islands and have written a brief report recommending what I think are the most interesting things to do and some good places to stay and eat. Here's the link: http://mikestripreports.blogspot.com.es/2015/04/mykonos-and-santorini.html
Hope it's useful to someone!
Am looking at flights from Santorini to London and I've seen one with a 9 hour stop in Athens.
I have a few questions....
Will I be able to leave the airport?
Is it easy to get into central Athens and how long approx does it take
Can anyone recommend any good half day tours that could pick me up from the airport and aren't too pricey?
In May I am embarking on a road trip in a hired car exploring several mountainous areas in Northern Greece, eg Zagochoria, Rodopi, west to Dadia. I am used to driving in rural areas in South Africa on dust and gravel roads in a normal car, not an SUV. Although I shall avoid motorways, I do not intend to go wild and drive off-road. Does anyone have any experience to share about road conditions, weather, scenic routes, wildflowers? Thanks.
My husband and I are planning a short stay in Crete as a part of a longer European holiday. We are planning to ferry from Santorini to Heraklion on the 27th of September and fly out of Chania on the 6th of October.

Most of the group sailing trips advertised are 7-8 days and we don't have the time to do it but very much want to try our hand at sailing.
We are married American couple (from NYC) in our early 30's and love to eat/drink/explore.
This is my sample Itinerary.
2 days in Athens.
3 Days in Santorini
3 days we want to spend in either Milos ?
2 days we want to spend in Naxos .
Then return back to Athens.
I know its little tight. But we don't like to spend much time lying on the beach and love to travel and see more places.
My confusion here we should do Milos & Naxos both ? Or any one for 5 days. But the thing is We want a place which has more sight seeing and more to offer. So that my daughter and…
