Greek courses on Crete & in Athens

In Rethymnon there is the University of Crete offering year round courses in Modern Greek, both winter and (intensive) summer. Also, there is a private language school in Chania - Lexis in ?Daskalogiannis St. if I recall correctly. Further afield but judging from its excellent quality textbooks Taks...

Getting ahead in Greek

I sat in on one lesson at City Lit in London and found it very good. I was in touch with Lexis Chania in the past and found them most unhelpful and rather arrogant and cold. The author of Communicate in Greek series - Frosso Arvanitaki - used to teach at Athens Centre in Athens Pangrati. Maybe she s...

Learning Greek

Communicate in Greek does indeed come in three volumes. I have completed most of vol. 3 with a variety of teachers in different locations, the latest course being at the University of Cyprus in Nicosia where the teaching was brilliant. I think it is a useful book although in many ways prefer Greek N...

Then you will have to walk for ...

Minoan Lines have another sailing the same da, 24.6, at arond 22h00 I think it is. ANEK Lines on the other hand only offers the day sailing on Sat 27.6 yo...

actually, Minoan Lines advised a while back that I could leave luggage with them if need be. I had forgotten that. The Minoan Lines coach arrives in Piraeus at 9 am. they tell me, in time to catch their 11 a.m. departure for Iraklion, arriving at 17h00! So I shall almost certainly do that. I can ove...

No matter. the key thing is to be able to see the ferry!
Self-service is preferable in my view so that is good.

Blue Sar Ferries Superfast day crossing

That's right Filippos. It is indeed a new service.

These are occasional extra crossings during the day on specific days and at specific times. They vary from company to company.

ANEK LInes Piraeus to Chania. Embarcation time from when?

Clio. Do you know how early one can board the ANEK ship Piraeus to Chania departing at, I think, 21h00? thanks. Could it be from 19h00 perhaps? I did contact ANEK Lines but they don't reply! The bus takes 45 minutes Chania-Rethymnon whereas it takes 90 minutes to do the Iraklion-Rethymon run. I like...

hotel in Iraklion?

There are no less than 4 ships Piraeus to Iraklion on 24.6! including 2 DAY crossings. It might be a bit tight to make the first one leaving at 11 a.m. (ship docks in Patras at 5 a.m., connecting coach to Piraeus supposedly leaves half hour later). In which case could make the 2nd sailing at 15.30 w...
