Greece & Ioanian Islands for Budget travellers

Jump to last reply

We are two ladies travelling to Greece in mid September, which we understand to be less 'hectic' that earlier touristy months.
Plan is tohave at least 2 weeks at our disposal to do 2/3 days Athens, 4 days Corfu, and a week travelling Kephalonia, Ithaka and other islands.

Please can I ask for any tips, don't do's and reccomendations of where to not stay. We are looking for as typical a 'Greek' experience as we can have, especially in terms of good local food and wine. Specific questions I want to ask is:
Is backpacker/budget accomodation do-able in Athens?
Is Corfu Old Town extremely boistrous and loud, or is there charm still? Has anyone tried out the morning markets in the town? Where else in Corfu is a good place to stay?
Are ferries from Corfu to Kephalonia reliable in mid - end September?
Is it possible to rent a chartered boat that will sail two of us around the islands for a week? (we don't sail so will need a skipper)
Look forward to the responses.
