Whenever I am in Greece, I end up needing a pharmacy! Whether it is getting bitten by bugs my body isn't used to, or getting a sunburn, etc... one time I even had a sinus infection while I was there.

I can't always find one when I need one, though. In places like Athens and Thessaloniki, it is pretty easy to find one. But I've struggled in some of the more out of the way places.

I know I could always pack medicine, but no matter how prepared I feel, I seem to need one for a situation I didn't plan for.

Is there a website or an easy place I can go that will help me find a Pharmacy while in Greece without having to ask at my hotel or wander around looking? I just want to be more prepared this time.
 

Visiting Delphi worth it?

I am trying to figure out if visiting Delphi is worth it. I want to fit seeing as many historical sites as I can into my itinerary. I've always been fascinated by ancient cultures and their histories, which naturally puts places like Athens and Santorini on my list. Recently, I've been reading up on Delphi and am intrigued by its significant historical and cultural value, not to mention its picturesque landscapes.

Given its status as the center of the world in ancient Greek civilization and the home of the famous oracle, it sounds like a place full of fascinating stories and ruins. However, I'm also aware that Greece is full of remarkable places to visit, each with its unique allure.

Favorite Smaller Islands to Visit on Greece

I'm planning a trip to Greece later this year and would love some advice. While I've heard a lot about the popular islands like Santorini and Mykonos, I'm more interested in exploring some of the smaller, lesser-known islands.

Do you have any recommendations for charming, smaller islands to visit in Greece? I'm looking for those hidden gems that offer beautiful scenery, unique culture, and a relaxing atmosphere without the massive tourist crowds.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

Advice for Different Dishes to Try in Greece?

I’m really excited about exploring the local cuisine. I’ve heard so much about how delicious and diverse Greek food is, and I want to make sure I don’t miss out on any must-try dishes.

Could you please share your recommendations for Greek dishes that I should definitely try while I’m there? I’m particularly interested in both well-known classics and any regional specialties that might be a bit off the beaten path. Some questions:
  • What are the absolute must-tries that define Greek cuisine?
  • Are there any dishes specific to certain regions in Greece that I shouldn’t miss?
  • I love street food! Any Greek street food recommendations?
  • What sweet treats should I indulge in?
Also, if you have any restaurant or taverna recommendations where I can experience these dishes authentically, that would be amazing!

Cruising the Ionian Islands Questions

The Ionian Islands have captivated my imagination for years, with their storied history, lush landscapes, and crystal-clear waters. The thought of waking up each morning to a new island and a new experience is thrilling, to say the least.

However, I'm a bit at sea (pun intended) about where to begin planning such a voyage. Here are a few questions I have:
  1. Which Cruise Line Should I Consider?
  • Are there specific cruise lines that you would recommend based on personal experience that cater well to exploring the Ionian Islands?
  1. Best Time of Year to Go?
  • When is the ideal time to take this cruise? I've read varying reports on weather and crowd sizes throughout the year.
  1. Must-Visit Islands and Attractions
  • For those of you who have traveled to the Ionian Islands, which islands were your favorite, and are there any must-see attractions?
Thanks in advance!

Travel Tips for Naxos

I'm planning a trip to the island of Naxos soon and I'm reaching out for some guidance and tips.

First off, I've heard that Naxos is a haven for foodies – any recommendations on local foods I absolutely must try or the best places to eat?

Exploring the cultural heritage of Naxos is also high on my agenda. I understand there are plenty of historical sites and ruins that abound. For those of you who've wandered the island's ancient paths, which historical spots would you say I need to see??

Also, I’d love to hear about your favorite beaches. Are there any hidden gems I should know about? Places that aren’t too crowded perhaps?

Thanks!
