I believe I will be spending maybe a week in Kythira over the summer, but I will have a few weeks left in Greece. What are some places that make sense to visit in addition? It can happen either before or after Kythira, doesn't matter. I do plan to spend at least a few days in Athens before heading to Kythira. Are there some islands that are easily accessed from Kythira by ferry that are worth visiting? Maybe somewhere in the Peleponnese? I am open to suggestions.

I don't know how easy these places are to get to from Kythera but I have been to Elafonisos island nearby. You can visit Παραλία Φράγκος

Also, if you are thinking of Peloponisos, you have to go to the medieval fortress of Μονεμβασιά

TripAdvisor: The Greek Hotels In The World’s Top List For 2023

Breaks 12-month Short-term Rentals Record.

Yes that's all well and good....the downside to this as is all over the European destinations that there aren't any rentals available for locals,the rents are extortionate,the areas once neighbourly don't exist anymore!.....And with it arrives inferior quality travellers!

Is it scary to drive in Greece?

I have heard some horror stories of driving in Greece, but many of these stories took place in cities like Athens. Is this observation true?

The reason why I am asking is because I am going to be visiting Tinos soon and would like to rent a car to explore the island. I heard that this was a fantastic way to get around. Tinos is small, and to me this means the driving might not be bad.

I had a bad driving experience in Italy while in Rome, but once leaving Rome and entering the countryside it was totally fine. I'm hoping Greece is like this, too!

Anything to actually do in Piraeus?

I am traveling to Greece this summer and flying into Athens. I will spend a few days there, then head out for a cruise. I am trying to figure out where to stay. When I ask, no one tells me to stay in Piraeus, which would be the most convenient option. Is there a reason no one is stying near Piraeus? Or am I missing something?

So far, I am thinking of booking a hotel by the Acropolis - but I want to consider all my options.
