  1. Is Elisa a local guide? Or she makes tours in several cities? What did you manage to see in 3 hours? Was it enough? Or do you have list of places you want to visit next time?
  2. We are big cheese fans😍 Which one you would recommend to try first of all? And maybe you know if there is a honeydew? We tasted it ones and still can't forget!!!
  3. Maybe some gourmet tour in Rhodes will be a good solution? Usually such tours contain a small historical part mostly done in a bus and the main part consists of great dishes tasting - no walking needed Why not to choose such type of traveling in one of mentioned locations?
  4. Maybe it's better for you to rent a guide with car so that you'll have a chance to see both Rhodes and Lindos considering they not that far one from another. My personal opinion after reading tourists' reviews is that Lindos is mostly a beach town, there are main points with panoramic views but they seem to be more precious than Lindos itself... So it's up to you to choose...
  5. Are you the only one or you have some friends in your company who want to have a tour in Rhodes? If there are 3-4 people, you can rent a private guide with a car who can make a day long excursion with stops wherever you want) We've heard such options are very popular on islands. You will decide where to spend your time! I think this variant is more interesting than just a group tour.
  6. Our worst experience was when we booked a room in a hotel whose owner didn't speak English at all! She was able to say I don't speak English and that was all!!!)))))) We got all the necessary information in nearby cafe)) So don't worry, if one person doesn't understand you then ask the next one!
  7. Just took a look - view on the sunset is gorgeous!!! So sad we'll be there only in a daytime....
  8. What dreadful things are happening in Rome... What a pleasure it will be to stand for hours in line just to be pulled through the Colosseum and not seeing anything much... Not sure I would choose such option. Maybe view from the outside is the best decision?!
  9. We are also planing to visit Lisbon as well as Portu. I've seen a great picture of A Cevicheria in Lisbon with ceiling Octopus. It looks terrific. Want to visit it so much! Many good reviews on TripAdvisor!
  10. We studied the question when planned our visit to Russia, such day exists in Hermitage for sure... We've read that the line was infinite, but travel companies offer entrance on such days with skip the line option. Not sure about Rome and Colosseum, but maybe worth examining the question?
  11. Just checked, available are tickets till the 8th of June... Need to wait a bit more...
  12. This recommendation we've got when asked for help with restaurant in Rome for B-day celebration. Not been there yet, plan to book a table and have an amazing time there on the 21stt of April! slidergirl said: Well, if he want to truly pull out all the stops, I'd say La Pergula up on the highest hill of Rome at the Rome Cavalieri (a Waldorf-Astoria hotel). Michelin-rated. Romantic. Fantastic view overlooking Rome. 
  13. Why don't you want to take a ride on boat to Lindos from Rhodes port? We've seen some suggestions on such tours, maybe it's easier to get there by waterway? I guess it's in the same port where cruises dock.
  14. We've been to Naples in October - warm comfy weather, sometimes even hot! Used my straw hat every day! Carolyn
  15. We also met the situation with SOLD OUT! Not good memories.... It was in Florence I guess.. You don't need to buy tickets months ahead, but 2-3 weeks before will be fine. You can just check the availability of tickets and if the situation changes somehow, you can decide at the moment to buy or not to buy... Price is also decisive... It can became twice bigger... So decide...
  16. What an amazing view! 😍It's a real must-see!!! Hope the weather will be fine when we dock in Santorini! Want to make picture alike to print my own postcards and send them to my friends with words "We've been there")))))
  17. Ok, I will share our experience if find some nice coffee-stop with good coffee! Not sure Greece is considered to be leader in coffee-making, but hope it is not bad))) Carolyn
  18. Just took a look at first recommended restaurant - OMG, Waldorf-Astoria looks amazingly outstanding! Small menu, but all the positions sound so appetizing! We liked Gourmet menu - the best way to try main part of suggested dishes! We will look through Katie Parla website for more suggestions - so good we have enough time to choose and to book a table for us! Carolyn and Graham
  19. Thanks for your recommendations, but it seems that they are very cozy, but for our small lunch we want something more exquisite, more special, festive. You suggested places for regular visit, at least it seemed to me so... But thanks anyway!
  20. Great I found this information, just wanted to find out what to do at Chania))) We want to make some local shopping and spend some time in pleasant cafe. I think we will even come to waterfront just to be sure we've seen all!
  21. pfopma thanks for recommendations! We tried moussaka in Greek restaurants in UK, believe the one in Classico would be much better Do you have any favorite places for coffee stop near port?
  22. We are planning to go to Rome before our cruise which starts at Malta - seen good reviews about Cosmos B&B. Situated near Termini railway station and close to major sightseeings - good for walkers))
  23. What a great experience! Thanks for sharing! I adore flea markets, guess my hubby has a different opinion))) What a pity we will be there on Monday! But we'll try to use your tips while organizing our day!
  24. pfopma, great picture! We will be on Santorini in April this year, gonna use your recommendation for restaurant Classico with such gorgeous view! Not sure we'll manage to see sunset, but the view itself is terrific! Worth visiting! By the way - what about food? Was it good?
