In regards to archaeological sites, perhaps Lucretius might be able to help you.

He is fan of this topic and of an other of Archaelogy.

I couldn't promise you anything but I reckon you'd better send him a p.m.


One of his posts is in this thread, in this page. Take a look 7-8 posts above.

Which Greek island should you go to?

CNN) -- Greece's 1,400 islands -- 230 of them inhabited -- are one of the Mediterranean's most beautiful assets.

From the Ionian, up by Albania in the northwest, to the Dodecanese, near Turkey in the southeast, they offer vacations you can't get many other places.

Each of the island groups has its unique allure, plus some of the most picturesque seascapes on Earth.

But for sheer variety in a small radius, proximity to Athens' ferry port at Piraeus and the best inter-island boat connections, none compete with the Cyclades.

We present the top nine islands in and around the Cyclades, each with its marquee attraction (for ferry schedules, check www.gtp.gr or www.greekferries.gr).

Both of these islands have airports. Just fly to Athens first and then catch a connecting flight to either of the two islands from there.

Hi there AleksLazarevic.
Kastelorizo does have an airport, but it is connected only with the island of Rhodes. So if you want to fly to Kastelorizo, you have to get to Rhodes first and fly with Olympic Airways from there with a Dash-8 100. There is a flight everyday of the week. During the summer, it is not that easy though to find tickets.
Alternitavely, there are a frequent ferry connection and fast catamaran (2,5 hrs) from Rhodes as well.

I found this page checking for the timetables. You may find it useful.

I also stumbled on this page concerning island hopping in the Aegean, which you also might find interesting.

http://planepics.org/cms/index.php/...dventures-english/68-island-hopping-in-greece

For Santorini, you can check out the timetables given by Olympic/Aegean airways or alternatively Blue star ferries.

I found this page concerning general info, traveling to Santorini.

http://www.visit-santorini.com/site/how_to_go.htm

It seems that Thomas Cook etc fly to Santorini. I don't know if there are direct charter flights from London. But Santorini is connected to Athens by plane and you can also take a ferry or highspeed from Piraeus (the port of Athens).

Santorini is also connected by ferry with Rhodes, if that helps you with visiting Kastelorizo.

I also found some info on the ferries from Athens to Santorini here.

In any case, hope you have a great time. :)

Hey AleksLazarevic

the dream trip is to get a plane from London, go straight to Rhodes and then pop into one of those ferry boats from Rhodes island to Kastelorizo(aka megisti - 'majesty') island . Of course this kind of trip schedules apply only for a short period during Greek summer and you should check thoroughly in advance.

Frankly it should be the most expensive way but, as far as I am concerned, that's the easiest to get there.

You can find the rest in Username_Unnecessary's post.

Have a nice trip.

By the street there is only one at Platanos (close to Veroia). I think is under construction one more close to Igoumenitsa, but I am not sure.
There are plenty though very close (100-200m) of some intersections such as Kipourio (Grevena) and Moustheni(Kavala).

Αφιέρωμα: Tips για την Πελοπόννησο

ΑΧΑΪΑ

Φανταστικό δάσος Στροφυλιάς
Από τη μία η λιμνοθάλασσα Προκοπίου και το έλος της Λάμιας. Από την άλλη οι αμμόλοφοι της υπέροχης παραλίας Καλογριά. Ανάμεσά τους το περίφημο δάσος κουκουναριάς, στα σύνορα Αχαΐας - Ηλείας. Πεύκα, βελανιδιές, αριές, μυρτιές, βάλτοι, ρυάκια και ατέλειωτα μονοπάτια. Παντελής απουσία ανθρώπων. Την άνοιξη, εκτός από τις βουτιές στην Καλογριά, θα έχετε την ευκαιρία για υπέροχους περιπάτους ανάμεσα σε ανθισμένα αγριολούλουδα -μεταξύ των οποίων αρκετές ορχιδέες- αλλά και για συναντήσεις με πουλιά που μόλις έχουν καταφτάσει στον υδροβιότοπο Κοτυχίου - Στροφυλιάς από την Αφρική (προσοχή στα αυγά που κάποια είδη αφήνουν στην άμμο).
