I'll be travelling to Greece in a little over a month with a friend, and we're finally looking into booking accommodation. We have limited time for this trip, and are fully aware that it will be a bit rushed. However, itinerary is as follows:
-arrive in Athens at 8:45 pm on June 8th
-early ferry to Sifnos June 9th, stay two nights
-late afternoon ferry to Santorini on June 11th (my friend lands in Athens the morning of the 11th and will be taking the ferry to Santorini so I wanted to…
Myself and a friend are flying into Chania on May 8th and have about a week to do some hiking and sightseeing before heading on to Santorini by ferry. I've spent a ton of time doing research but am having a lot of trouble finding information on certain specifics that I'm hoping you might be able to help me with. The goal is to do the hikes without carrying a tent or camping equipment.
Our basic plan is as follows per day (apologies for misspellings of towns):
1. Taxi from Chania to…
I am planning a 11 day trip to Greece (though I would not count the 1st and 11th days since we arrive so late and leave so early). Santorini is a must for us and I would like to spend 2 days in Mykonos. My boyfriend is a history buff and I love exploring cities, an occasional excursion, and a good beach. We both love wondering around new places, tasting new foods/wines, photographing scenic spots, and meeting locals. Not sure how I should time out my trip though.
Here's what I am…
Hi all I am planning a trip away later in the year late Sept. and was planning on getting to these 2 islands, I will be travelling over to Kos via ferry from Bodrum after spending 3 nights and then onto Rhodes via ferry then flying from Rhodes to Athens for a week and a half to complete my short trip in Greece, then onwards to Germany.
I would like some feedback on my plans for Kos & Rhodes I was thinking of 2 nights Kos & 3 nights Rhodes, I want to relax, I like the beach but also like to…
My partner and I are looking to spend a few days in Santorini in mid may. We are looking at travel options but direct flights seem a little expensive.
So we are going to try and see a way around. What would you recommend ?
We live in Stuttgart, Germany. Maybe you can recommend a route that would have us leave from another airport and reach another island, then island hopping would bring us to Santorini ?
Any help would be amazing.
Thanks in advance
We will be 4 (hubby. I plus married children) flying Jfk to Athens. Staying prob 2 nights to sightsee and then going to Santorini 2 days and then ferry to Naxos for 5-6 days. I know it’s a long ferry ride from Piraeus to santorini. Would it be better to fly? Cost comparison of this option? Also once in islands any recommendations for locations to stay? Def want to be near a beach on Naxios. Do we need a rental car in either place? Thanks
Back in the mid-1980s through to the late 1990s, I used to just book a cheap flight to Athens in June or September, go to Piraeus and get on a ferry, and on disembarking at the other end there would never be any problem finding a room from the people waiting to meet travellers such as myself. Is it still possible to do this? I haven't been back for nearly 20 years and I think the time has come. These days, do I need to be more organised and book rooms in advance?
My wife and I (we are late 20's and early 30's) will be in Crete for 6 nights and 5 days between August 29-Sept 4.
We arrive in Chania around 545pm by air from Athens on Aug 29th and plan on taking the morning ferry on Sept. 4th from Herkalion to Santorini.
I understand that Crete is very large and requires more than 5 days, however, that is not doable for our time allotment. Therefore, you will see we cut out some of the main things people suggest such as the museum in Herkalion and…
My friend and I are traveling to Greece in July for two weeks.
We are deciding on Santorini and another two islands maybe.
Or doing Zakynthos and Kefalonia.
We are looking for a mixture of super chilled lovely beach vibe. Plus some sightseeing, walking treks. History. We are in our 30’s and meeting friends from England somewhere one weekend. Who also want chilled Beach vibe.
I’m not keen on super touristy areas. My friend is set on Santorini.
All ideas welcome thanks.
