Is it possible to get from Corfu to Ithaka by ferry? I realize we will have to take multiple ferries, just trying all by ferry and not on land. We are traveling around July 1st.
Husband, 4 year old kid and I are travelling to Greece for the first time this October. Could you please comment on the rough itinerary, below?
We like - beaches, history (we love museums/ruins but unsure about our 4 year old), culture, scenic drives/scenery, easy hikes, local vegetarian food, wine/beer/local alcohol and friendly people. We plan to rent cars where possible.
Saturday Day 1 Arrive in Santorini @ 6.30pm after cross atlantic flight, O/N Santorini
Sunday Day 2 O/N Santorini
Hi, everyone! My trip to Karpathos is only a couple months away now and I cannot wait! For those of you who have been to Karpathos, or are familiar with the island, I am wondering if you'd like to comment on my loosely planned itinerary below. I am a beach bum, so half or more of the days are dedicated to the beach, so bearing this in mind, what do you think? Is there anything major I am missing out on? Any suggestions for my "free day" on the final day of the trip? I will have a car for all the…
We (4 of us) are traveling south from Albania on our way to the island of Ithaca. We probably need to spend the night close to the ferry port so we can catch the ferry at 12:15 in Astakof, any suggestions? We would also appreciate any bus info you might have from whatever town you suggest to Astakof. We will taking the ferry on either Friday or Saturday July 1 or 2. Thank you.
We have booked ferry tickets for mid September from Paros to Piraeus.
Can anyone tell us if the ferries normally run on time? We have flights to Sofia that leave Athens International at 6pm on a Sunday and wondering do we risk it and go on the ferry the same day ( to have an extra day at Paros) or change tickets and go the day before so we definitely make the flight ( no stress). There are 6 of us travelling. 3 who like to live on the edge and 3 who like to play it safe. Any advice on ferry…
My husband chose the Greek Islands. A lot to learn and read about! We're spending 2 days in Athens and then plan to island hop. He'd like to visit the towns, delight in the food and admire the beaches. I'm looking forward to the same, but I'd like to kayak at least on two different islands. We are seasoned and mature travelers so we aren't looking for the nightlife.
Thinking of spending a few days on two or three island. I've narrowed it down to Santorini and Milos. I don't see kayaking there…

I'll be in Mykonos in mid September. I haven't been in over 8 years, but the few times I've been there I've been able to find accomodation from people waiting at the dock as the ship arrive. Is that still possible to do these days or should I bite the bullet and book a hotel ahead of time? The accomodations look really expensive on line so I was hoping for a less expensive option.
Hi everyone. Perhaps this place isn't approriate for my purpose but I really need to the help of Greek people, and this seems to be one of the places I can go.
I'm here to find if anyone here can help me or give me some informations. Me and my friend are looking to find our mutual Greek friend who has been missing for a year. We know him for almost a decade. We don't know what happened to him, he disappeared without apparent reason. His contact numbers, emails and social medias all went dead…
