My husband and I are traveling to Corfu in July to celebrate my birthday. Greece is on our bucket list and we are so excited to visit. we are traveling from Atlanta to Budapest to see his family, then stealing away to Corgu for 4 days.
Can anyone recommend a good area to stay and things to do? It's all very overwhelming and we want to see everything :-).
We will travel within the Cyclades in July, so I'm now trying to book ferry tickets with gtp.gr.
My concern is that I find only catamarans, while we would prefer the classic ferrys.
For example on July 25 we want to go from Milos to Santorin, the only classic ferry I can find leaves at 21:00 and arrives in the middle of the night ...
Am I doing something wrong ?
Or do I have to search for the classic ferries somewhere else ?
Thanks for any advice
My partner has made arrangements for us to end our holiday in Athens for a couple of days and also for me to use it as a transport hub for my onward travel.
I was hoping some fellow travellers who have visited there recently could tell me how they found the situation on the ground there and if they felt the effects of the migrant crisis at all.
I'm reading news reports about the situation now. I can see there's been some unrest (to say the least) in the camps near Athens and also that…

Hello Everyone! I need some advice.... I'm cheap as hell and I don't want to pay the 18 Euro metro (Two People) from Monastiraki to Athens Airport. It says that I can go to Koropi, the stop before the airport for only 1.40 Euro a person. Now, I might seem crazy but why in the hell is it hiked up so much just to go one more stop? Is there another option I have here? Can I take it to Koropi and then take a taxi to the airport? If you got options, I would love to listen. I appreciate the help…
Note it is now only possible to get to Phaestos by bus from Heraklion (the bus to Matala) by asking the driver to divert there which he should do according to the Heraklion Tourist Office. Coming back you must tell the driver which bus from Matala you propose to catch and he will (supposedly) arrange for that driver to divert to pick you up.
I have to admit chickening out.
How reliable are the KTEL buses? I'm looking to take a 4 pm bus from Delphi to Athens, which is supposed to take 3 hours, but need to get to the port for a ferry leaving at 9 pm. Worried I may not make it, but it looks like the only earlier bus leaves at 11 am, which doesn't leave me much time there. Any thoughts whether they generally meet their scheduled arrival time? Thank you for any help!
Are there any travel agencies that arrange for a day tour of Patmos? I'm thinking of flying to Leros and was interested in taking a high speed catamaran to Patmos, to be able to tour the sites there, then in the late afternoon/evening return to Leros/ or Kos. Does anyone know if this is possible to do?
