We are hoping to travel to Kalymnos at Easter 2008 but are having trouble finding flight information. Most of the airlines dont go until end of May, does anyone have any suggestions for us to try.
Hi. Olympic now fly from Athens to Kalymnos, so you could try scheduled to Athens then a domestic flight down. Book early though, Easter wil be busy!
Easter in Greece will be celebrated at 27 April.This is not the same as Easter in rest of Europe!! Easter is the biggest feast in Greece, people will return to there homes and tickets will be hard to find. Easter is GREAT in Greece !!maria
You can also get a ferry from Mastahari on Kos.
Easter is wonderful - an experience everybody should have. Be warned though, on Easter Sunday nothing happens until about 11.00 at night - so have a quick sleep and then go out.
On Good Friday there will be firesworks and I was told when I was on Kalymnos that they let off dynamite all over the island - I have only been on Milos and that was much the same. Again, nothing really starts until about 11 at night, so do plan on that.
It will be the most fantastic time and you will love very minute.
