Here are a few key Greek travel tips for this summer that I think you would find helpful

1. Don't throw toilet paper in the toilet
2. You can always find a pharmacy that's open 24 hours, they alternate which ones are open in a specific radius
3. Masks are required on ferries

Please feel free to add more in the comments! :)

1. I always throw toilet paper in the toilet :sneaky:
4. Masks are required on internal flights - sometimes you just don't want to do that 8hr ferry...

I keep forgetting abut the toilet paper thing. I know, it's not best practice - it's just such a weird thing and tough to remember. I know, t is because of the plumbing but it's such a hard habit to develop. And yes, some of the ferry rides can be long!

I totally agree with this - especially booking in advance. I used to be able to go and be a bit spontaneous but over the past 8 years or so, this has gotten more difficult.

Where should the guests dispose of the toilet paper in this case? If there is a special bucket, then I have no questions. The news about 24-hour pharmacies is great! I have digestive problems, so in my case, the subject of toilet paper and access to pharmacies are related to each other. I use this site a lot to find hotel deals https://hoopladoopla.com/category/travel. I hope soon there will be a separate category for visiting pharmacies in other countries for people like me. A discount on a hotel bed is nice, but the price of Greek painkillers makes me forget about the savings.

Archaeological Sites to Visit in Greece?

I am making a list of Archaeological museums to visit in Greece so that I can start visiting some of them. In my research, it occurred to me that many of the good ones are associated with archaeological sites. I realized I should visit those, as well. Here is a list of some top places I know I should visit. Please let me know if I missed anything:

- Delphi - is there a museum here?
- Olympia (for the site of the Olympic Games)
- Knossos Palace - and from what I understand the Heraklion Archaeological Museum houses a lot of the artifacts.
- Acropolis/ Parthenon - I have been here before, but the museum that is on site wasn't there at the time - and I figure I may as well visit again.
- Marathon - is there anything here? I know there's a lot of history
- Delos - I have seen pictures - it looks fascinating

I feel like I am missing a lot, but maybe this is a good start at least.

Athens car rental question

If I rent a car in Athens, do you think that I would be able to put it on a ferry to go to another island, like Crete?

My next trip to Greece is going to include visiting a bunch of people in Athens, not all of whom are in convenient locations to the metro, and then head to Crete. I like to have a car on Crete because I want to explore. I don't want to have to rent a car in two different places. Any suggestions?
