Will be traveling to Greece and am wondering if I should get Euros before I go from my bank, or just use ATM's like I usually do. I've read there are some tight withdraw limits on ATM's in Greece. Does that apply to foreigners?

Hello,

I am planning a short trip to athens in late november for my bf's birthday and am trying to find a reliable/good hiking or adventures agency to plan a day around athens hiking, canyoning, or rock climbing.
I've only found "Trekking hellas"; they seem ok but don't have too many 1-2 day options. I'm wondering if anyone has any other suggestions of similar agencies?
We're both quite active and fit but as we are only traveling for 5 days will not have any gear with us; this is why I am…

We're hoping to go to Milos as part or our honeymoon in July 2017 but on Aegean and Olympic websites flight schedules beyond March are unavailable. I have tried contacting the airlines but have had mo response. Does anyone know when the summer 2017 flight schedules will be available, or better still, roughly what they might be? I cannot risk waiting months to book the flight to Athens and a hotel but equally, I cannot book a flight to Athens or a hotel on MIlos without knowing the times and days…

Hi,

Next November I'll go to Greece. My main aims are Athos, Athens, Saloniki, Meteora. I'd like to dedicate a day, at least to the wildlife. But, my time is limited. So, any suggsestion of a daytrip of birdwatching from any Athens or Saloniki?
By the way, I'll carry only binoculars, not spoting scope.

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I've just have a permission for going to Mount Athos next November. I need more information. As sterters, a pair of questions:

  • In the page of athosfriends.org you is said that although you can find different maps of Athos in Greece, their quality is low. Also, these are advised http://www.filathonites.org/maps/ . Advertisment or reality?

  • In the same page is said that monasteries were abandoned their fax machines. Something not very surprising. Does anybody know where to…

We are in Pylos at present and shall be driving to Nestor's Palace tomorrow to see that, then we want to head north to try and take in Stemnitsa and Dimitsana with two nights left before our last night in Corinth before catching our flight out of Athens Airport. We are thinking that the best way to these two towns is to head back to Kalamata and Messini and then catch the national road that goes through Tripoli to Corinth, taking the off ramp I assume at Tripoli via Davia, Chrysovitsi to…

Hope this is not too late, but I get the idea there is a ferry strike on this friday. I'm on the Saronic islands and need to get from Methana to Aegina on friday. So this is a problem as I have booked my next stay already and it is non refundable. Hm.

Anyone know something about this, and possible ideas?
Thanks

Hello,
I have one week in Greece in mid October. (no where near enough time I know). I land in Athens on Sunday morning and am planning to visit one island as I have to be back in Athens on Wednesday evening. I am looking for something not too far from Athens -but am willing to fly, nice beaches, picturesque villages and some interesting sightseeing. I think that I have ruled out Santorini as I heard that the beaches are not that nice. I have been doing lots of reading but there are so many…
