So I bought a time machine … well it looks more like a plane ticket!

I’m going to be in Greece for around two weeks in mid-September, and am hoping for some advice in how to best immerse myself in Classical and Hellenistic history and art – as well as the practicalities and logistics of the present day! [more inside]

Where to buy exercise shorts in Athens, Greece?

I am staying in Ampelokipi and am spending most of my days in Kolonaki. I am not Greek and do not speak Greek. Is there a department store or something around here where I could buy a cheap pair of exercise shorts? I tried the Carrefour in Ampelokipi and wasn't able to find any. [more inside]

And I'd also love to get recommendations for a fantastic and romantic dinner in Athens on the actual birthday night. [more inside]

What should I do in Greece that isn't a beach or a nightclub?

I'll be in Greece in September for work and it seems a shame not to take some vacation time while I'm there. Problem is most of the tourist guides seem to focus quite a bit on how great the various beaches are or how awesome the nightlife is, neither of which interest me when I'm traveling alone. Ruins and archaeology are good and I intend to include some of that but there must be some awesome things that I don't even know to look for. Some more specifics inside. [more inside]

Honeymoon Planning Help!

Santorini Honeymoon-Has anyone been to Santorini, Greece and could recommend a hotel that was romantic and beautiful but not outlandishly expensive- Let's say $200 per night or less, or a package deal. We are looking to go in September. Thanks so much for your help.

Safe travels in Athens (Greece)?

Mom is in Istanbul now, flying to Athens on Saturday for 5 days. She's heard about civil unrest/protests in Athens recently. The news reports I've found (which aren't many) describe a 24-hour general strike yesterday, with shutdown of public transportation, flights, and other services. She knows to steer clear of any protests, don't talk politics, etc, but what else should she know? [more inside]

Work in Patmos for a month?

Hi I'm considering remote working from Patmos or another Greek Island for a month or so either in spring or late summer. I hear from Negroponte's initiative the island has free wifi -- what's coverage like? Does anyone else know of a sweet spot of affordable + great internet connectivity in Greece? Free isn't necessary; reasonable is. If so, recommendations for sites offering short term apartment rentals in your recommended area would be most awesome! Let's say, 4-6 weeks.

Greece [Athens/Ios] - what should I absolutely do or see?

So I'm heading to the island of Ios with friends in late august. Our plans mostly involve drinking and beaches, but I'm wondering what I should check out before/after the island, in Athens or otherwise on the mainland. Bonus points for interesting things that aren't complete tourist traps, of course - I'm naturally going to go see the Acropolis, and am resigned to the multi-hour line-up for it, but would rather avoid such for anything else. Also I'm going through the Pimsleur Greek course, so Greek-only attractions will (hopefully) be fine by the time I get there.

And, naturally, I'd be pretty psyched to meet any MeFi people on Ios or the mainland. I promise I'm not crazy!
