Hi, Advice needed please. Senior travelers but independent but beyond the cliff climbing stage trying to plan a 4 to 6 Island jump from Athens to somewhere in coastal Turkey then onward to Istanbul, if the nasties are quiet. I confess confusion trying to balance available ferries in Mid Oct. with great scenic walk around island ports that would be easy on old legs. Price is a factor but time is not- within reason. Thankyou,

Hey all

Me and a friend of mine are planning to do a motorcycle tour around Greece in March 2017. i have around 10 days in hand and i am thinking 2 day for arriving and departing and 8 days for riding. I have done little research and i found that the main areas to ride in Greece are the mainly Peloponnese and then the main land. Is there any other places in particular ?

Hello,
Presently in Crete and wondering if we should pass by the Omalos Plateau if we are NOT going to walk the Samaria Gorge. Are there other nice walks to do with three children up there? To give you an idea, we walked the Imbros Gorge (8km) and we think that was their limit.
We have a camper so we are free to drive around and even drive East if there are other nice walks to do with children. Good climbers, two 9 year old twins and one 4 year old.
Thank you for any suggestions.
We are presently…

Hi Everyone,
A year after our wedding, my husband and I are finally going to Greece on our honeymoon! We booked our flights to Athens from Sep 3 - Sep 18, and are now deciding on which islands to visit.

I'm reading the Rough Guide to the Greek Islands as well as articles and forums, and while I'm now more informed, I am also more undecided. My husband and I love history and beaches. I also love photography. Based on this, here is my first stab at an itinerary.

Sep 3 - Flight from New York to…

We are interested in booking three round trip tickets on the rail from Diakofto to Kalavryta in August 2016. Our plan is to drive from Delphi and take the train from Diakofto to Kalavryta and back and then drive to Nafplio. My questions are 1)Is there enough time in one day for the journey? 2)Can we pre-book the tickets? I was not able to do a web booking--wondering if there's another option. We have a pretty tight itinerary, so don't want to be caught without tickets and be disappointed.. 3)Are…

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.

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…
