Hi, I know that this is a very "boring" question for this site but anyway I would appreciate thoughts and ideas. I hope to spend 10 nights on Evia. Really in need of a break and would like a small apartment/hotel room...just me...that is in almost on the beach...would love a swimming pool as well but so long as there is a nice stretch of beach with some shade that would be fine. I am seeing astronomical prices as it is end of July and into August and just thought I would see what comes about…
We have 15 nights in - Crete mainly - but we are fitting in 2 or 3 nights in Athens on our way back to the UK: our dates are the last week of September and first week in October.
I have now been searching for 2 days for a well recommended hotel in Athens probably up to about 150 Euro for a twin room and haven't found anything satisfactory (I realise Athens is expensive accommodation-wise!) - so - I would appreciate any personal recommendations please. The same for Heraklion and…
Hi, in 2008 I visited Santorini and Naxos in first half of SEP. I didn’t book accommodation in advance as I heard you can get good deals from apartment owners as you step off the ferry in shoulder season. This worked out really well – got great apartments (sunny balcony, spacious, great view) for cheap (€30/night).
Is this still the case or have things changed in 10 years? My wife, 14 month baby and I are looking to visit Paros and Antiparos in first half of SEP this year. Approx 4 days on…
Need to know how much time to allot to cross border on foot, go thru border control, get to bus stop or station on Greek side for bus ride to Ioannina on July 16.
Need to know how to either buy bus tickets (2 each, one way) from Kakavia to Ioannina ahead of time, or that morning. We want to take the 11:45 AM bus on July 16. We must end up that eve in Kalambaka.
I plan to go from Sarande, Albania by taxi to the border town with Greece, Kakavia, on July 16. Several questions here:
How much time should I allot to cross border on foot, deal with paperwork, and get to bus stop (assuming there is one) or bus station in Kakavia, Greece to buy bus tickets, 1 way, 2 tickets, to Ioannnina- so we can catch the 11:45 bus?
I am unable to purchase bus tickets online, ahead of time, for July 16, 11:45 bus to Ioannina. Is there a way to do this to guarantee the 2 of…

Hi everybody. I will land in Mykonos alone the 11th august and i will remain alone until 26th. It's the peak and most expensive season so I cannot book on Booking or similar cause just very expensive things remained now.
Until 10 years ago it was normal to go without booking nearly everywhere even the 15th august; now i know in small islands it's impossible.....
Do you think I will find something at ports of Paros, Naxos and Siros with decent cost (40€ night)??
Thank you for answers
I will be in Heraklion, Crete, in early October.
Can anyone recommend a budget hotel in Heraklion, at less than 50Euros per night? I am a solo traveller.
Grateful for any recommendations and good experiences.
we were robbed on the X96 Airport shuttle bus. A duo, one nice looking guy with glasses and laptopcase and another weird looking guy spitting. The weird one attracts your attention buy standing very close to you, so you watch your luggage, the nice one, standing behind us stole my wallet from the kneepocket of my cargopants, altough the pocket was closed with two buttons. I realised all this minutes later, after they got off the bus.
When we reported this at the police station, they gave us two…
Is the beginning of September a good time to hike the Corfu trail? How much planning is needed, and is it necessary to book accommodation in advance? I'm planning on staying for 8-10 days, and I'm in good shape.
