Trip Report Greece: Final thoughts and pictures (I hope)

Jump to last reply

Now that we have been back a week a few final observations/insights and I hope photo albums.
1. The Greek people (at least the ones we met with the exception of a grumpy taxi driver or two) really are as friendly as they are reputed to be
2. If you visit the acropolis in the summer do it at night (we didn't!) - all that white marble reflecting the sun is blindingly hot
3. Museums in Athens are well worth the time - very well laid out and every time we tried the lunch places at the museums the food was great.
4. Get out of Athens - visit Meteora and Delphi if you possibly can
5. Ferries really are easy to get around in (except of course when they are cancelled lol)
6. Enjoy the Tavernas but try other restaurants as well - and don't miss trying Dakos.
7. We loved Crete and Naxos - so many more islands to visit

And that is all my brilliant advice. What an awesome trip - thank you all for your help and guidance.
