Re: Kusadasi to Samos by Ferry

Hi Al

Sorry - can't help with the Kusadasi to Samos ferry times but this site might be of use, particularly for ferries within Greece.

Hi I had a friend stayed here in Sept 2007 and this is what he says about the hotel - Yes, that's the hotel. It suited me fine, central location, reasonable rooms, great views of the city having breakfast on the roof and a nice little cool garden. I've thrown away all the info I had on costs. I reca...

No problem.

When do you go? If it is not high season you might find they will give you two double rooms anyway - always worth asking the question!! And then you wont end up with the noisy single room!

I am there three weeks today - yiippee! :D

Hi

Does anyone know if the Grand Bazaar will be closed during this holiday period - as it was in January 2007 for the last Kurban Bayrami?

And if so what days it is closed?

Many thanks

Hi Just a couple of points from my recent Greece/Turkey excursions. I picked up the Piraeus to Samos ferry in Naxos. It was 2.5 hrs late due to high (force 8 ) winds - apparently not unusual in Greece in the summer (it was July)! :o Our journey took 6.5 to 7 hours to get to Samos. Luckily we had boo...
