Now normally I would ignore such negative and inflammatory readings.... but I thought it appropriate to post this here! Zante has the most spectacular beaches!... Just read what has actually been going on there for years...
"The notorious 18-30s holiday packages to the area are immensely popular among those who want to soak up the Greek sun while letting their hair down."
Back in 1970 Club 18-30 was apart of our parent company Horizon Holidays in London,a jewel in the crown for sophisticated,well to do, mostly young professionals just going abroad to destinations like Tunisia,Morocco, Corfu &Turkey! Never would any such adverse publicity be published...I frequently travelled to Athens to our clubotel in Voula... Just unbelievable young people having a good time with etiquette and proper behaviour, respecting the culture..…Over the years it has changed its brand imaging together with the likes of Kon Tiki Holidays!I am glad Zante comes under the spotlight so less notorious tourism goes there..... They have party destinations like Mallorca (parts of and Ibiza).

Most fires in Greece were started ‘by human hand’, government says.

This has already caused many cancellations due to fear being created by exaggerated reporting which the Media takes pleasure in! The problems here are next year's bookings as both Rhodes and Corfu are main stream tourism destination for Brits and Germans accounting for many millions.

Beaches Near Thessaloniki

Is it still beach weather in Thessaloniki? I am interested in beaches to visit in September/ Early October...

Some possibilities:

  • Sani Beach
  • Nea Kallikratia Beach
  • Epanomi Beach
  • Perea Beach
  • Potamos Beach

What do you think of these? I researched online but am curious your opinions.

UNESCO Sites Near Athens

I decided to narrow down my list to UNESCO sites in Athens to see. I will be here long enough, and I plan to prioritize the 2 or 3 I really want to see, and then see if the rest happen.

Here's my list:

- Acropolis in Athens - could probably spend a day here - seems like there's a lot to see
- Delphi - I am hoping to be able to do Delphi as a day trip?
- Meteora - is this possible on another day trip?

Did I miss anything? I know I want to do Acropolis and Delphi, not sure I will have time for anything else.

Visiting Churches in Greece

I can't remember if there is a dress code for visiting churches in Greece. I know in monasteries they tend to be stricter, but many have skirts or scarves you can borrow at the door.

If I wanted to attend a church service or simply visit a church or monastery, how is it that I would need to dress? Is it okay for women to wear pants?

Help Packing for Greece Trip

I am starting to make my pack list for Greece. I plan to get there at the end of August. What is the weather like? It's been a while since I've been and I need answers to some questions:

- Does it get cold at night?
- Should I expect some rain?
- How are the winds? Will I need a windbreaker?

Also I am curious about fashion stuff... what do the women tend to wear in Greece? I know that's vague, but I don't want to look totally like a tourist in my wardrobe.
