I've been debating which airlines to travel to Greece with, and which European countries would be the most fun to visit! What other countries have you been to on the way to Greece (I'm thinking to stop for a few days) and what was your experience? I'm going to take another girls trip to Greece with my dear friends, we loved it and are looking forward to another year!

That depends on where you are coming from, how much spare time you have and what your preferences are.
I would recommend Malta and Croatia if you haven't been there before

OOhhh great suggestions! I've never been to either but I've heard great things. Both are good because they're lesser known, but I love that. I live in Newark, NJ so it would be easy to travel to either of those, thanks!

You can fly to Athens direct from Newark but not to either of the other two not even from New York. Limited direct flights from Athens to Valletta but no direct flights to any Croatian city from Athens. You have to fly from Rome . If you wanted to visit all tree, Valletta first then Zagreb via Rome then Athens Via Rome. Malta is beautiful and English is almost their first language.
If you go to Croatia Dubrovnik is a much see and Međugorje in Bosnia, especially if you are religious.

Eeek sounds a little complicated! Good luck @seleanor :)

Previous to this year, we would buy a Delta/Alitalia ticket Boston-JFK-Athens, with Rome - Boston on the return. Aegean Airlines flies to both Venice and Rome. We took Aegean to Venice; then the train to Rome - very, very easy! With all the COVID protocols this year, we chose #1 Greece only to avoid regulations possibly changing while en route between two countries. However, the Italian journey always felt like a fantastic bonus as we sadly left Greece!

Having been to Greece many times over the years, I have had layovers in Frankfurt, Germany, London, England, Rome, Italy, Paris France and Geneva Switzerland, only quick layovers for most but did spend time in Paris, Rome and Frankfurt in the past on my way to Greece.
 
None!!
Don't bother, don't waste time just go straight to Greece.

They've opened up a direct route from the Boston area to Athens FYI. Delta announced in October 2021 they were adding flights for the 2022 year. This is long overdue! In the past, we from the Boston area either have to do a changeover in New York or a changeover somewhere in Europe. Last time I went to Greece, I flew Swiss Air and had a stopover in the Zurich airport in Switzerland. Stopovers make for a loooong travel day - I'd rather not! lol.

What is the best Greek island for a bachelor party?

Some of my buddies and I are considering going to Greece for my friend's bachelor party, but we're not really sure what the best island would be. We're not super young, most of us are in our mid 30s so we're not very interested in going clubbing every single night. Something relaxing would be great, with a pretty decent night life that is not too crazy, again. Do you have any advice?

How expensive is it to travel around the Ionian islands by boat?

Chartering a boat to travel around the Greek Islands is something that I've always wanted to do but that I always assumed wasn't feasible. Has anyone done this with a big group and found that it's a little bit cheaper? Are there any packages or any tips that you recommend for going around the island that would make this a little bit cheaper?
