This website is an archive from 2016
This site was actively maintained from 2006 to 2016. Since then I have kept it online for historical interest, but have made no further updates. Much of the information in these pages is now incorrect or obsolete.
Mainland Greece | Links
In contrast to most other countries covered by Balkanology, I have not investigated even a handful of the thousands of sites devoted to travel in Greece. If you need to know more, the first site listed (Greece Travel Guide) should point you in the right direction. Many of the more general sites listed in the Overview of the Balkans are also useful for planning a trip to Greece.
This personal site has hundreds of pages of advice about Greece (islands and mainland), together with articles on such topics as hiking in Delphi, Winter in Greece, and Greek Cinema. Beware: if you are considering a trip to Greece you may end up spending hours on this site.
Another site presenting one person's view of travel in Greece, combining practical advice with photos of the natural and cultural landscape.
Standard official guide to sights and accommodation.
This is one of IYP's newest ventures, but the format will be familiar to fans of their guides to Eastern Europe cities.
Transport and Practicalities
Timetable and fare information for Greece's domestic trains. The site appears to undergo frequent redesigns, becoming a little more difficult to use each time.
Database covering both domestic and international ferry routes, with online booking.
