#千禧一代在路上# Sylvia的希腊之旅

旅游者:Chris和我
旅行时间:8月26日至9月2日
 

费用篇:


英镑汇率按1镑=8.7元人民币,1欧元=7.5元人民币 计算,所有费用都是按2人统计。

机票:提前了一个半月预订,事实证明在后来的时间机票还有再继续降价,因此大家可以再晚一些买机票。
(1)伯明翰至雅典来回,经停苏黎世,共约5个小时,瑞士航空(Swiss Airline),花费488.86镑(4253元)。飞机蛮舒服,餐点也不错。
(2)圣托里尼至雅典,飞行50分钟,OLYMPIC AIR,花费150.60欧(1129.5元)。飞机很容易晚点,圣岛机场特别破,脏乱差,挤得人山人海,没几个座位,人们只能坐地上。

船票:记得提前一天去雅典的PIRAEUS码头取船票,否则第二天早上会排队排死。
(1)雅典至米克诺斯岛,行船4小时,BlueStarFerries,花费73欧(547.5元)。船特别舒服,感觉很高大上。

(2)米克诺斯岛至圣托里尼岛,行船2小时40分钟,Hellenic Seaways,花费124欧(930元)。船比较快也很高级,风景非常美,可以用Wifi。


住宿:血(钱)的教训……大家能不在夏天来希腊就别来吧,住宿贵得离谱,晚订还没房!听朋友4月份去的要比我便宜一半以上,想必冬天会便宜得更夸张了。
(1)雅典两晚:Ariston Hotel,酒店花费92欧(690元)。由于我们只是在雅典短暂停留,所以定了个交通方便、楼下就是地铁站的酒店。这个酒店不咋地,不推荐。
(2)米克诺斯岛两晚: Pension Alexandra,此酒店离港口大概800米,老板会开车来港口接送,花费260欧(1950元)。这是本次旅行最不值的一个酒店,因为价格非常贵,但设施很一般,但米岛上面这个时段的酒店全都贵得离谱,我定的这个酒店居然算是最便宜之一了……我后来又查了下价格,九月份他们家的房价就下跌了近三分之一,所以贵还是因为八月是旅行高峰期!(我的银行卡在哭泣)
(3)圣托里尼岛三晚:Artemis Village,此酒店离机场非常近,老板也会开车来港口接送,花费262欧(1965元)。这个酒店超级棒,我回去在booking上评了满分10分!有游泳池、大房间、海景、特别好的老板、小猫咪……各种都完美!

车费
(1)雅典的士:我们半夜三点到的雅典,从机场打的至酒店居然花费58欧(435元,没错我的心在滴血,后来才知道雅典的的士好像是半夜会变成双倍价格),酒店离市中心并不是很远。所以以后大家还是坐地铁吧,其实雅典的地铁是24小时的。
(2)雅典有24小时的地铁票,4欧元(30元)每人。

饮食消费
平均下来,大概两人每天至少花了100欧(750元)在食物上,希腊的食物也不便宜,正餐基本都要花个三四十欧一餐吧。

总共消费:按照我和Chris用英镑换欧元及银行卡支付酒店机票等数据显示,大概整个行程我俩一共花了2500镑(21750元)。
 

游记篇:

写在前面的小建议:大家可以先在手机上下载TripAdvisor的离线版,就可以看地图与餐厅、景点推荐了。


1.雅典

旅游时间:8月26日半夜三点多才到雅典,第二天玩了一整天,第三天早上就离开了。
旅游地点:卫城博物馆(推荐程度:2颗星)、Lycabettus山(5颗星)

museum-benku8


我们去卫城博物馆的原因是……天气太热,而且这里门票比较便宜,只要5欧(卫城要20欧一个人!),哈哈!之前查资料说卫城遗址其实一直在维修重建,所以里面都在施工,加上天气太炎热所以我们选择这个卫城城下的博物馆看看,如果特别官兴趣那看完之后还能再上卫城去瞧瞧,如果没有特别大兴趣的话就算了。在游览了这个博物馆后,觉得……空调可真舒服啊!哈哈哈!里面还有个图书馆,有Wifi,小伙伴们可以进来休闲休闲。不过总的来说,不是很推荐来这里。

这是我最推荐的雅典游览之地——Lycabettus山!具体怎么去大家记得先用TripAdvisor或谷歌离线地图查好,要走很长很陡的路才能爬到这座山的山顶上,我当时差点累断气!但是风景真的超级美,还有无敌的夕阳!山顶上正好有人在用上面的蓝白小教堂举行婚礼,除了人太多了,一切都很唯美~

推荐餐厅
卫城周围有很多餐厅,服务员都会站在店门口拉客,我们去了其中一家全雅典排名第30,也就一般般,TripAdvisor上这周围餐厅都是差不多的水准,所以如果非常饿你就随便去一家吃吃吧。

重点推荐一家无意间发现的餐厅Chef and the dog,在Lycabettus山脚:

sandwich


本来以为是一家有狗狗的餐厅,原来这里的狗是热狗……超级好吃!还便宜!大家一定要去啊!!!

2.米克诺斯岛

旅游时间:两天半。
旅游地点:米克诺斯主要就是玩它的小镇中心(推荐等级:4颗星),我们还有骑摩托车去找了几个海滩(推荐程度:5颗星)及农庄(推荐程度:2颗星)。

米克诺斯小镇都是这样窄窄迷宫般的路,建筑基本以蓝白为主,特别的小清新,超级可爱。

米克诺斯的海比圣托里尼好看,大家一定要租车到处开开找海滩玩哟!

food-greece


Vioma Organic Farm & Vineyard——这是我前面提到的有机农场酒庄。有当地人种的葡萄地,还有一头看起来蠢萌蠢萌的驴。西方人应该会很喜欢这里,因为有很多五花八门的橄榄和芝士。我太吃不惯了!而且我也不喝酒,所以我在这里只吃了点西红柿和黄瓜,(大哭!)然后饿得不行后面回镇中心唯一一家名叫“好好吃”的中国餐厅(对中国人来说推荐程度打5颗星吧哈哈)买了一碗米粉风卷残云般吃完了!
 

organic-farm-greece


推荐餐厅:
米克诺斯岛排名第一的Compass Mykonos. 风景实在太美了,正对着海。海鲜味道也不错!虽然价格不便宜,但真的值得来吃一餐!

3.圣托里尼岛

旅游时间:四天
旅游地点:Fira费拉镇中心(3颗星)、Oia伊亚镇(3颗星)、红沙滩(3颗星)、灯塔(0颗星)、火山和温泉(1颗星)。

为什么我给圣托里尼打分都偏低?因为我的期望太高了。中国人对圣托里尼的印象都是特别的浪漫美好,但我去到的时候,景点却都没有达到我心中的预期。我所在的几天风沙特别大,我觉得中国北方的沙尘暴都不一定有这么夸张,在圣托里尼岛的南边,你只要在室外超过五分钟,你全身肯定会布满细沙……

不过圣托里尼的物价却不贵,基本上东西都比前两个地方便宜。

Fira费拉这个圣托里尼最热闹的小镇,其实看起来有些乱,人特别的多。有点中国热闹县城中心的感觉……

fira

 

Oia伊亚这个日落最美坐落悬崖边的小镇,离Fira费拉开四驱车ATV需要半个多小时,很多大家看到悬崖上的房子其实都是饭店或者旅馆,它们把最佳观景地点都包起来了,路人其实很难找到好角度看风景。不是很讲究的话,也可以在窄窄的路上坐着看夕阳。美是美的,但你要接受你身边有无数的人和你一起挤挤地欣赏日落噢!

views-sylvia


红沙滩还不错,海很漂亮:

sea-view

 

灯塔超级坑爹,千万别去,还有那个要坐船去的火山岛和温泉,如果不是穷极无聊,也不用去了,没什么意思。

推荐餐厅

MAMAS: 每个来到圣托里尼的人估计都会推荐的餐厅,真的很棒,在Fira费拉镇中心。虽然没有风景可以看,但是菜很不错,价格也不贵。Starter(开胃菜)比主菜要好吃,草莓咖啡一定要试试,非常美味。

Karafa Tavern: 在我住的酒店旁边,超级好吃,价格也实惠!同样面对着海滩,服务员很可爱!

我们在Oia观日落的一家非常好的餐厅我记不住名字了……对不起大家……超级好吃风景又好的一家餐厅,在最靠悬崖那一边。哎,总之大家记得提前打电话定餐厅位置,要不然晚饭时间基本没几个可以看到日落的餐厅是还有位的。

注意:有一家餐厅叫The Good Heart,在圣托里尼岛南部,TripAdvicer上排名很高,但是超级不好吃,大家千万别去!
 

 

Travel Guide: How to Enjoy Greece

Travelers:Chris and I
Travel Time:August 26th to September 2nd

Expenses:

Exchange rate: 1 British Pound = 8.7RMB, 1 Euro = 7.5RMB, and all costs are noted for two people.

Plane Tickets: We booked a month and a half in advance, although later the cost of the tickets went down so you could book your tickets later.

(1) Birmingham to Athens round trip, with a layover in Zurich, 5 hours flight time, Swiss Air, spent 488.86 pounds (4253RMB). The plane was comfortable and the food was good!

(2) Santorini to Athens, 50 minute flight time, Olympic Air, spent 150.60 euros (1129.5RMB). These flights often have delays, the island airport is often broken, dirty, crowded, and short on seats. Some people have to sit on the ground.

Ferry ticket: Remember to book you ticket a day in advance and pick them up at the PIRAEUS terminal, otherwise your wait in the queue will make you want to die.

(1) Athens to Mykonos, sailed for 4 hours, BlueStarFerries, cost 73 euros (547.5RMB). The boat was very comfortable, and made you feel very high up!

ship


(2) Mykonos to Santorini, sailed for 2 hours and 40 minutes, Hellenic Seaways, cost 124 euros (930RMB). The ship was relatively fast and high class, the scenery was beautiful and you can use Wifi!

Accommodation: Blood, sweat, tears...a financial lesson learned...people should not come to Greece during the summer, it is very expensive and there's no room if you book last minute! I should have listened to my friends and gone in April, their hotel was half the cost of mine, and I assume it'd be even cheaper in the winter.

(1) Two nights in Athens: Ariston Hotel, cost 92 euros (690RMB). Because we were only in Athens for a short time we valued convenient public transportation and stayed in a hotel next to a metro stop. This hotel isn't ??, I don't recommend it.

(2) Two nights in Mykonos: Pension Alexandra, the hotel is only 800 meters from from the port, and the hotel will send a car to pick you up, cost 260 euros (1950RMB). This was the most expensive hotel of the trip, and the facilities were only average, but every hotel on the island was ridiculously expensive during this time of year—this was actually the cheapest option! I checked and prices dropped by a third in September, so August is definitely the most expensive time to be there. My bank card is crying.

(3) Three nights in Santorini: Artemis Village, this hotel is very close to the airport, and they also have a pick up service, cost 262 euros (1965RMB). This hotel is awesome, I gave it 10 stars on the site I booking site. It has a pool, large room, a view of the ocean, a great manager, a cute cat...everything was great!

hotel2


Other Transportation Costs:
(1) Taxis in Athens: We arrived at midnight, and took a taxi from the airport to the hotel which cost 58 euros (435RMB, my heart nearly stopped, later I found out taxis charge double the price at night!). The hotel wasn't far from the city center so after the first night we good the metro, since the metro runs 24/7 in Athens!

(2) Athens 24-hour metro subway card, 4 euros (30RMB) per person.

Food Costs:
On average two people spent at least 100 euros (750RMB) a day on food, food is definitely not cheap in Greece, and a dinner is usually around thirty or forty euros.

Total Cost
According to Chris and my calculations of the entire trip, between euros and pounds we spent a total of 2,500 pounds (21,750RMB).

Useful Travel Sites:

One piece of advice: You can download the TripAdvisor app which has an offline version that has maps with restaurants and attractions listed.

1. Athens

Travel Time:Arrived on August 26th at 3AM, spent one full day there and left on the third day.
Tourist Destinations:Acropolis Museum (Recommendation: 2 stars) and Lycabettus Mountain (5 stars)
 

museum-benku8


We went to the Acropolis Museum because...it was hot and the tickets were cheap, only 5 euro a person (20RMB), haha. The site of the Acropolis has been under constant construction and repair, so there was construction, coupled with hot weather, so we chose to go to the museum to look around. If we wanted to we could always go visit the Acropolis afterwards, if we didn't think it was that interesting then we could just not go! After the tour of the museum all I could think was...air conditioning is really comfortable! Ha! The museum also had a library and Wifi so partners could visit at their leisure. However, in general I don't really recommend going there.

views


I recommend Lycabettus Mountain over any other place in Athens! It's easy to remember how to get there if you use the TripAdvisor app or Google's offline map option. It's a long, steep climb to the top of the mountain so by the time we got there I was exhausted! The scenery was beautiful though, and there was an incredible sunset. At the peak of the mountain there is a blue and white church that people use for weddings, and except for the fact there were a lot of people everything was beautiful.

Recommended Restaurants

There are many restaurants around the Acropolis, and the waiters will stand in front of them trying to get customers. We chose one that was ranked 30th, it was just okay, but TripAdvisor said it was about the same as the other restaurants in the area, so if you're really hungry you can really pick any of them.

重点推荐一家无意间发现的餐厅Chef and the dog,在Lycabettus山脚:
One recommendation I do want to make is that you eat at Chef and the dog, at the food of Lycabettus Mountain:

sandwich


At first I thought it was a restaurant that served dog, but then I realized that dog meant hot dogs...and they were super delicious! And cheap! You really have to try it!

(1) Mykonos Island

Travel Time: Two days.
Tourist Destinations:Mykonons's main area for fun is the small town center (I'd give it 4 stars), we also had a motorcycle to find a few beaches (5 stars) and farms (2 stars).

Mykonos is a small town with maze-like roads, blue and white buildings, and a very fresh vibe. It's super cute.

sylviasylvia beach

The ocean in Mykonos is prettier than in Santorini, you really should rent a car to go visit the beaches!
 

food-greece


Vioma Organic Farm & Vineyard—This is the organic farm winery I mentioned earlier. It has locally grown grapes, and..? Westerners will really like it here because there are many different kinds of olives and cheeses. I'm still not used to it! Plus, I don't drink alcohol, so I only really ate cucumber and tomatoes (so sad!). Afterwards. still hungry, we went back to the town center, there was only one good Chinese restaurant (which for Chinese people I would rank at 5 stars! haha) where I downed a bowl of rice noodles.

organic-farm-greece

Recommended Restaurant:
Mykonos is home to the very famous Compass Mykonos. The scenery is beautiful, and it opens to the ocean for incredible views. The seafood is also good! Although it's not cheap, it's still worth a meal!

3. Santorini

Travel Time:Four days
Destinations:Fira Town Center (3 stars) Oia Town (3 stars), Red Beach (3 stars), Lighthouse (0 stars) Volcanos and Hot Springs (1 star).

Why did I give Santorini such low scores? Because I had set my expectations too high. Chinese people's impression of Santorini is that it's very romantic, but when I went the reality didn't meet my expectations. It was very windy while I was there and the wind picked up a lot of sand, I think the dust storms in Northern China probably aren't as bad...if you spend five minutes outside in the south of Santorini you'll be completely covered in sand.

That being said, Santorini is relatively cheap, and basically everything was cheaper there than the first two stops.

Fira Ferrara Santorini had the most going on, it was actually a little chaotic and packed. It felt a little bit like a Chinese town center.

fira


This sunset was in a beautiful cliff-side town, Oia, about a half hour away from Fira on a four-wheel ATV. It looks like the cliff is covered in homes, but they're actually mostly hotels or hostels. Hotels have actually taken over most of the best locations, and it's very hard for people not staying there to find a good view! If you're not particular about it you can watch the sunset from the side of the road. It's beautiful, but you'll have to accept that it's going to be crowded so you'll be enjoying it with others!

views-sylvia


Red Beach is also nice, the ocean there is beautiful:

sea-view

The lighthouse could not be less interesting, don't bother going. There is also a boat to see the volcanic island and hot springs, but unless you want to be bored I don't recommend it.

Restaurant Recommendation

MAMAS: Everyone who comes to Santorini is sure to tell you that you should eat here. Located in the center of Fira, the scenery is nothing special but the food is fantastic and not too expensive. The appetizers and entrées are all delicious, and you have to try the strawberry coffee, it's so good.

Karafa Tavern: This was next to our hotel, delicious, and affordable! It faces the water, and our waiter was super cute!

We ate at a lovely restaurant in Oia, but I can't remember the name...sorry guys! It was on the side of a cliff and the food was great. Anyway, remember that for many places you need to call in advance to make a reservation if you want to watch the sunset, otherwise they're already full!

Note: There is a restaurant called The Good Heart that is ranked really highly on TripAdvisor, we didn't eat there but maybe you can try it out!
