Greece

Travel in Greece

Hi – We are spending our last week in Greece. Corfu, Olympia, and Athens. I am having difficulty finding the best way to travel between these places – bus or train. Also, is Olympia difficult to travel to, are there any other stops we could do between Corfu and Athens that would be better? Thanks!

Pink Palace

Me and my friends were thinking of going to the Pink Palace in Corfu cause we were told by many different travellers that it is AMAZING.
Can anyone recommend it??
Thanks!

Look for advice on travel between countries!

This summer (May 28-June 17) myself and two friends will be traveling to Lisbon, Barcelona, Paris, Venice, Florence, Rome, and Athens. Our flights to and from are already booked and now I’m struggling to find the best way to get around within the countries. I think we are going to fly from Rome to Athens just to save time/energy getting there by rail. I’ve been looking at railpass but I’m not sure how much it is really going to save me.

I was hoping to take night trains when possible.

Experience Greece On Line (Video + Stills)

My film “I Follow Apollo” presents the highlights of Greece, including Athens, Olympia, Meteora, Sparta, the Byzantine Empire, and a cruise to the islands of Mykonos, Santorini, Crete, & Rhodes, plus Ephesus in Turkey.

The video can be seen on the web, if you have a high speed internet connection.

Best Greek islands??

Hi,

I’m flying into Athens and I hope to spend about a week in Greece. What are the best Greek islands? Which are the safest, most fun, etc.?

Thanks!

Places to Avoid

Hey everyone, I know this is the favorite places thread but I was wondering which cities should be avoided when backpacking alone. I am a 20 year old 6 foot 3’ 200lb male but its still good to be careful. I will be traveling from athens greece through italy, switzerland, germany, fance, and spain. I would love to know where not to stop along the way. thanks!

Europe/Oktoberfest 2011

I’m getting started planning quite early but this trip has to wait til my boyfriend is out of the Navy. We are going to be planning it around going to Oktoberfest and Amsterdam, all the others are places I’d really like to visit. Here is my initial itinerary: http://www.eurotrip….

Just trying to get a feel for what order to visit cities in or if there any “better” places to consider.

Thanks for any input!

A question about the most convinient way to travel these places?

Okay, so here I am planning a second trip next summer. Ideally, I’d be traveling 3 to 4 months this time.
In that time, I’d love to visit Switzerland, Autria, more of France, and Czech Republic, Greece.
What would be the most convient way to do that(and the cheapest) I’d love to visit the capitals and also beautiful little towns that I may not know about yet. Is the global pass a good option? And also, what option would I take, I’m a bit clueless when it comes to eurorail passes.
