I will be going to Greece in October with my son and grandson, who both enjoy fairly challenging (that means steep) hikes. Any suggestions for them?

Ann,

There are plenty of mountains on Crete, but you weren't specific about your destination. On Santorini, we hiked to the top of the mountain above Kamari and explored Ancient Thira, where you can see several layers of different civilizations built on top of each other. Persevere to the top to see the entire city laid out on the plateau, plus a killer 270-degree view of the Aegean Sea. Reward yourself with a visit to one of Santorini's fine wineries when you get back to sea level. And if you can, take an overnight ferry to Crete. Must be ten million olive trees there! And each and every one has an irrigation line running to it.

Taking my family to peloponnese this summer. We are all very excited.

A Greek Untour is on my wishlist for October 2010. I'll follow my two weeks with a one week visit to my friends on Antiparos. I was there in April of 2004 for the renewal of their wedding vows. There were only four Americans on the island and we were them. Along with a young family from Denmark we were the entire tourist population. I was told to wait a month and things would be really different. I look forward to going back because my friends have built a house since then and live there from September through May each year.

I'm off to Nafplio in April 2009. Any advice for visiting Delphi, Monemvasia and Olympia? Roads appear winding and narrow so I'm considering an overnighter to these destinations. Good idea or not? Any clue on lodging at those spots?
Comment by Cliff Seiber on December 15, 2008 at 10:26am
Frank: You are wise to plan on making Delphi an overnighter -- maybe two nights, to give you a night to rest from the drive and a full day for exploring Delphi. It's a long drive, and yes, the roads do wind through the canyons until you get to the superhighway at Corinth. (Drive in the "emergency lane" (shoulder) except to pass, Christos will tell you.) And you'll want to stop for photos of beautiful views of the Gulf of Corinth between Corinth and Patras. The town of Delphi is a tourist desitnation, so there are T-shirt and souvenir shops. I was there in November, the off season, so it was easy to find lodging in one of the numerous small hotels. In the spring you may want advance reservations. It was an adventure to cross the beautiful bridge across the gulf and then return by ferry. You could also make a two-day trip of Delphi, Patras and Olympia before heading back to Nafplio, though I went only to Delphi.

Also, think about a day trip to Hydra island; it's beautiful and an easy "Greek isle" experience from Nafplio.
