Subject: Re: Greece in November
Hi Melissa and Ken,

First of all, welcome to the group. I was in Greece in May, but we went to Santorini and Naxos, so I wonŽt be able to help you regarding what to see on the islands.

You are right regarding renting a car. We did it in both islands (much smaller), and it was a big bonus to our stay.

I booked our first ferry (Athens to Santorini) via web. I knew that we could have bought our tickets once in Athens, but I wanted to make sure that we got a cabin, mostly as a luggage store place (and as a place for my sister to sleep, she slept around three hours and was delighted). Afterwards, we bought the tickets at travel agents both in Santorini and Naxos. I think that in November the ferry schedule might be shorter, check it at :

There is a member in Athens, Joanna. She is really great. I met her last May and she took me to a small restaurant called To Kouti. I have the address somewhere, and IŽll send it to you, because we really liked it.

We used the Lonely Planet Greece guide, and it was quite good (combined with the Greek Islands Eyewitness Guide, and a few books beginning with the Odissey).

Bye, and I hope you get lots of answers.
