Hi Dave, We loved reading your in depth posts on Athens and Greece.
We need your suggestion for our upcoming trip:. We are a small family of 3 and we would be travelling with our Athejs month old daughter.
We are staying very close to the Acropolis, at Thalou Street, Plaka. We fro wanted to know whether trying this out looking for Athens real women should book the 30 Euro combo ticket online from the Ministry of Culture website, or should just buy them when we are. Another thing, can we mature escort halifax buy the combo ticket at the Temple of Olympian Zeus just to beat the long lines at the acropolis gate since its barely mtrs from where we are staying.
Furthermore, do we need to trying this out looking for Athens real women in line again to get the free ticket for our baby, even if we have booked the combo ticket online for how to live with an unfaithful husband husband and I.

I would recommend getting your combo ticket at the Temple of Olympian Zeus, and trying this out looking for Athens real women there for archaeological sites. There is a nice walk from the Acropolis museum which goes all the way around the Acropolis on stroller friendly pavements. The Acropolis being a case in point — You will most likely need to collapse the stroller and carry baby at some points.
Enjoy your time in Athens! Hello Dave! Thank you for your detailed 2 days in Athens. We are staying really close to the Acropolis Museum and were wondering if you Can suggests any rooftop places for dinner and places to see.
Do you recommend a day trip to Cape Sounion? Thank you. Many of the hotels with rooftop views are also good places to eat — Point A Herodion Hotel for example. Skyfall bar and restaurant is another option. I do recommedn taking the late afternoon tour to Sounion.
Thank you very much for all of your helpful information! We are going to use your information as a jumping off point for our travel to Greece next week. Greece was the number 2 request from my son when we moved to Italy 2. Thank you for such detailed information about Athens and Greece!
My husband and I are planning our honeymoon in Greece in August. We are excited but a little overwhelmed while trying to plan a good itinerary. We are spending 3 days 2 nights in Athens, then flying from Athens to Santorini on the third day in the evening. We are looking for a hotel in Plaka. We will then spend 4 nights in Santorini.
Is renting mature masculine wm iso bbw car or ATV amherst SD bi horney housewifes Santorini the ideal transportation mode? Renting a car for a day or maybe two is a good way to see other parts of Santorini. We are a group of five women visiting Trying this out looking for Athens real women for one week, we are staying near Chania for four days and then Kissamos for Three days.
I have never driven abroad, would you recommend driving in Crete or use public transport? Myself and my daughter will then fly to Athens on the 15th June.
We want to spend 2 to 3 nights in Athens and the rest of it in the Peleponesse region. We want to visit Nafplio and Monemvasia. Is it possible to do it in seven days?
Will we need a car? How safe is it to drive around the peleponesse. My advice, is to only hire the car for when you need it — driving between destinations. Driving is far more convenient than trying this out looking for Athens real women transport.
Nafplio and Monemvasia are tow lovely destinations in the Peloponnese. Might I also suggest visiting Mycenae ancient site and Epidaurus along the way?

Driving in the Peloponnese is absolutely fine — getting out of Athens may be more of a challenge. For road trip itineraries in Greece, take a look here — Road trips in Greece. What is a good operator you would suggest for renting self driven cars? Hi Rutvee, Apologies for the delay in response — I missed you somehow! I love the climate in June.

Waters just about warm enough to thumbnail post amateur sex gangbang comfortably. Sightseeing in Athens is better done on foot. If travelling around the country, a car is best.

I Seeking Sex Meeting
Hi Dave Thanks for your advice. I had a feeling that the Plaka was a bit out of the way how to start an online dating business day 2 but did not realize it was close to the Agora so i will follow your advice.
I am heading off today for Myanma snd a slow boat trip down th Irawaddy from Mandalay to Randoon so I will follow up trying this out looking for Athens real women advice on Santorini and Crete at a later date. Enjoy the boat ride! We were there about a month ago. If you get the chance, spend some time at Inle Lake — probably our favourite area in Myanmar apart from Bagan temples.
Hi Dave!!! I just recently came across your blog and WOW so happy I did. So, much useful information especially when you speak about the transportation in Greece and really thinking about those traveling with plenty of bags. The 28th we arrive pretty late to do any sightseeing flight arrives around Travellers include 6 adults and 3 children all under 3.
I will defintely be using your blog as a reference through out our trip.
I have a few questions thought:. Would arranging a transport service to and from the airport be the best idea, being that we have 7 plus bag 3 carseats and a stroller or would you consider us renting a vehicle? Would you recommend CitySightseeing hop on hop off tour bus to take us to many of the must see sights? Any specific tickets you recommend we buy ahead of time for certain sightseeing locations to avoid major lines?
Hi Maria, I hope you are well, and glad to hear you found the blog useful! It sounds that because you are such a big group, a private transfer would be a good option just to make life easier.
This is a good starting point: Private Vehicle Transfer. If you stay within the historic centre of Athens, you can pretty much get around on foot, using the metro system probably a couple of times. No need to buy daily passes for the metro either — i think single trips will work out fine for you.
The major line is for the Acropolis tickets. My normal advice is to include a visit to the Temple of Zeus first, and buy the combined ticket there which allows you access to the main sites.
Additional — there is talk of an electronic ticket going to be available. Take relevant ids to prove age! I have been before a long time ago but want to give them a taste of this and that but then head off to one of the islands, we are thinking Naxos for 4 nights. I remember well that I went to Cap Sournium when I was there and it was breathtaking, can you tell me about that and how you go about it.
We will be arriving at 1. Can you also tell me about safety? Hi Angela, Apologies for the delay in getting back to you! I think your choice of Naxos for a trip with kids in Greece is an excellent one.
Let trying this out looking for Athens real women address safety first — I honestly believe that Greece is one of the safest countries in the world. When you get to Naxos especially, you will wonder why everyone is so stressed in other parts of the world! A common sense approach will see you all fine, and travelling as you are certainly does not make you a target. That said, there are always points when your awareness is lower than others — particularly after a long flight!
For this reason, I would recommend a pre-booked taxi from Athens airport to the centre — Find out more here — Athens to city centre. I also found an interesting tour here — Cape Sounion Private Tour. If your kids are Percy Jackson fans, you could also Google my friends at Kids Love Greece — if you decide to use their services, let them know I directed you their way! Dave We 2 adults will be visiting Athens on Jan for the 1st time after transiting through the airport from Crete for the last 6 years.
Is everything open in Jan, and what is the winter price for the multi tour ticket you mention? Hi Steve, Everything is open in January — just with reduced opening hours. For example, the Acropolis will close at The Acropolis Museum is open until In terms of the multi ticket, I think it best you check when you get.
If you head to the Temple of Zeus as your first site, you can ask them there and do a quick math check. You should be able to comfortable visit both the Temple of Zeus and Acropolis before Enjoy Athens!! I want to get in as much as I can but only have days.
With kids I need a mixture of sites and activities. Hi Kay, I hope you are well! If you want something more specific, can I suggest you contact my friends at kidslovegreece. Enjoy your time in Greece! Trying this out looking for Athens real women is trying this out looking for Athens real women I am thinking.
I would love your input: Fly from Santorini around noon to Athens. Get a rental car at the airport and drive to Delphi. Ladies Mallorytown, Ontario to have sex in Delphi.
Tour Delphi. The waterboys a man is in love to Olympia, stay in Olympia. Tour Olympia. Drive to Nafplio, stay in Nafplio. Tour Nafplio, drive through Mycenae, Nemea, Corinth before driving back to Athens airport to return the car.
Stay in Athens Day5: Tour Athens. Stay in Athens for another night or fly to Rome Italy. Any suggestions on the itinerary? Is rental car a good idea adult dating in Bellevue four of us? Or public transportation a good alternative?
Will I need a full day in day 5 in Athens? So if we need more than half day in Trying this out looking for Athens real women in day5, I would stay in Athens and fly trying this out looking for Athens real women the morning to Rome. Hi Cindy, I hope you are. Your itinerary sounds great! Your longest drive will be from Delphi to Olympia I think — but perfectly doable. Allow at least 1. Corinth has two sites — trying this out looking for Athens real women Corinth and AcroCorinth — to do both allow 3 hours.
It will be far easier in a hire car than using public transport. With four of you, luggage may be a bit tight, so something to consider when choosing the vehicle. Have a wonderful time in Greece! I am planning to arrive in Athens on January 2,and will tour the whole day.
Would you recommend that I go to Santorini then just for a day trip on January 3? Are there any tourist spots or museums in Athens that I can visit in the evening when I get back from Santorini so I can maximize my stay? Hi Vicky, Apologies for the late reply! I think it comes down to how many hours you have on the island. Jan 3rd is a Thursday I think — Check out the Benaki museum. There are several different buildings, some of which open til trying this out looking for Athens real women As for the tour — probably a great way to see those sites in a condensed amount of time.
Enjoy your tour of Trying this out looking for Athens real women I read your suggestions on time to visit so I guess that would be good time to visit?
Alsocan we 2 of us take local transport to all the side trips like Delphi, Cape Sounion and temple of Poseidon etc or one has to do it with a tour company?
Slutty married women Blackheath fun for hours for the lucky woman reply is appreciated.
You can take local transport to see the sights you mentioned, although I think the Cape Sounion trip Atjens more difficult, because you may not see the sunset when the last bus goes. And if the last bus goes, you are stuck! We are planning a two day trip in Athens with two kids 6,3. I plan to stick to your itinerary. Can you please tell me what trying this out looking for Athens real women I need to buy to rral inside all trying this out looking for Athens real women places you have mentioned.
I will skip Hard Rock cafe. And What transport you used between the places. Is there Fuck local girls now free or I need to rely on public transport? If you want to see an extra site as well Kerameikosthen Iut would say get the multi-site pass for the ancient sites in Athens. Start off at the Temple of Zeus, and that way you will avoid the queues for tickets at the Acropolis. In terms of getting around Athens — This itinerary is all possible on foot.
