Subject: Re: Greece
Hello Thomas, You are choosing a great time to visit greece as far as the weather, but because August is the height of high season, you will need reservations. I don't recommend trying to book accomodation or tours after you arrive. Also, with flights, bear in mind that you won't be able to fly island to island (with a few exceptions, you can fly from crete to Rhodes, and make one or two other connections in high season). You would need to return to Athens and then go to each island. Also remember that Athens is hot and noisy and dirty--you may want to chop a day or two off and add it to the islands. One island that I recommend is Paros (we just got back from 2 months there) despite the unfortunate ferry tragedy. Collette Saunders Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
