Hi Phil - its Nici - I used to sit opposite you - Kate and Kate's assistant - I about to go to Athens on Monday 4th June - any tips?
am in Athens for the 4th 5th June and flying to Santorini on the 6th back to Athens for the night of the 15th June and flying to Istanbul
how much chaos is Athens -in ? airports ?flights?
Hi Nici, hope you're well - obviously you are if you're going to Greece, lucky thing!
Stay away from Syntagma Square in Athens, it's where all the rallies focus. Not much reason to go there anyway.
Any 'civil unrest' is concentrated in Athens and Thessalonika, never anything on the islands, you won't notice anything.
The only hassle will be if there's an air traffic controllers strike or a ferry strike.
Check this mob
for updates about strikes (scroll down to get to Greece). Nothing planned at this stage and the number of strikes are down on last year anyway. EasyTravel also have a great set of links for checking airport departures and delays etc.
Enjoy. Send me a postcard.
