Daily Excursions by Car - Athens Region  (2 Answers)

Hi there - greetings!

Could you help us?

My wife and I are planning to fly to Athens next Wednesday, rent a car and spend 5 days having day-excursions in the region, but returning to Athens to sleep at our hotel.

Could you be so kind as to suggest good day-excursions/car itineraries based on your experience/travels/knowledge of the region? And, also, any advice on things to do, places to eat or items buy etc?

Looking forward to your response asap.

Best wishes for Christmas and for your travels this and the coming year too!

Short Stay in Athens

I am lucky enough to be spending two weeks in Greece with some greek friends of mine during June/July of this year. We will be based out of Rhodes for the whole two weeks, so I am planning on staying overnight in Athens when I return home. I will be flying into Athens the morning of July 5 and will be departing late afternoon on July 6.

I would like some recommendations on cramming in as much as I can on July 5 and the morning of July 6. Are there day/sightseeing tour companies that anyone could recommend?

I want to stay at a nice hotel with decent views of acropolis and that is walking distance to all the main attractions. I am happy to spend up to 150 euros. Could anyone recommend some hotels?

Any other information for a first timer in Athens and places I should definitely visit it such a short time frame would be greatly appreciated.

Bianca :)

Would You Like to Come to Meteora On Saturday March 22nd with Me?

If there is one person only, who would like to ride along with me and two other VTers this Saturday, March 22, 2008, and return to Athens on Monday, March 24th, send me a message to arrange where to meet. I will be driving my car and have room for one more passanger. I ask only that you pay for your own expenses, (room, food) and share the cost of 1/2 the petrol for the car. If you are interested, let me know ASAP. As for accommodations, I have been in touch with one hotel owner there and he said that we would find rooms even without prebooking when we get to Kalambaka.

We will be staying 2 nights in Meteora and on Monday we will stop in Delphi on our way back to Athens.

Visiting and travelling between islands in April..?  (6 Answers)

After a couple of nights of research I'm Google-eyed over this...we're looking to spend 7-10 days in and around islands easily reachable from Athens - there's some great tips on here, but I'm not sure a) whether we're going to find reasonably priced hostel or self-catering accommodation available in April and b) how feasible/expensive it is to travel to and spend a couple of nights on a few islands - at the moment the shortlist is Poros, Hydra and Spetses, but we're open to suggestions! We're looking for nature, architecture, beaches (hoping the temperature will oblige!) and somewhere off the tourist/party trail to stay. If anyone could offer up any pointers, it would be greatly appreciated...? :-) Many thanks!
