I will be visiting some family in the Boston area over the fall for about a week for a wedding and from there, I would like to leave for Greece to spend about a month there. Does anyone know if there are nonstop flights from Boston to Athens at that time of year and if so, how do I track them down? I heard Delta had nonstop flights but can't seem to find them when I search for the dates I need. Do these flights only occur on certain days?

Delta have direct flights from BOS to ATH, not sure if they have winter flights. They have 3 flights per week well into October. Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from BOS. Check it out on their website.

Delta has really stepped things up! Very exciting that they now have a direct flight to Athens at least a few days out of the week. In the past, I have had to do stopovers in places like London, New York, and Zurich (and none of them had been ideal).
 

Canyoning Bled Slovenia

Hi guys!!
I'm planning to take a group canyoning Bled but apparently, it is obligatory to use a local guide. I am a canyon instructor (caf and ffme), is this enough to supervise without anyone else? I have several years of experience (climbing and canyoning) and it is obvious that I will not be able to offer this destination if it is not possible.
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!

Best places in Greece to see the Venetian influences?

I am interested in the Venetian influences that are interwoven into certain parts of the country. From the architecture to the local customs, I understand that the reach of the Venetian Republic left a notable mark that can still be felt today.

I'm in the midst of planning an itinerary focused on exploring these influences and I’d love to hear from you about the must-visit spots where one can best experience the essence of the Venetian presence in Greece.

Do any of you have recommendations for specific towns, buildings, ruins, or even local festivities that embody this cultural blend? Any hidden gems or lesser-known locations that surprised you with their Venetian charm?

Of course, I expect Crete, with its famed Venetian fortresses and the romantic old town of Chania, to be part of this list. But I'm certain there is a wealth of places, perhaps on other islands or on the mainland, which equally showcase this unique period of history. I also know there are influences in Corfu. Is there anywhere else?

Seeking Tips: Top Culinary Spots in Greece?

I am planning a trip to Greece and in need of some culinary guidance. Where are the must-visit spots for authentic Greek cuisine? From Athens to the islands, I'm looking for local favorites, hidden gems, and any must-try dishes. Whether it's a bustling market or a cozy taverna, I want to hear about the places that left you craving more. Any tips on where to find the freshest seafood or the crispiest spanakopita?

I would live it if you would share your recommendations and help me plan the ultimate foodie adventure. Looking forward to the trip for sure!

Sustainable Travel to Greece?

I'm currently planning a trip to Greece and am passionate about making my travel as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible. Given the beauty and historical significance of Greece, I want to ensure that my visit contributes positively to the environment and local communities there.

Does anyone have any tips or experiences they could share on sustainable travel practices in Greece? I'm looking for advice on everything from eco-friendly accommodations, sustainable dining options, to ways of exploring the country that minimize my carbon footprint. Also, if there are specific activities or tours that support local conservation efforts or communities, I'd love to hear about those too!
