    Just published the updates !

  2. Pavlos says:

    Any strikes planned for the week of 14 October ?

  3. Nate says:

    Great website! However, as someone on vacation now in Greece and affected by no ferries today I must say this is a difficult situation to deal with. I certainly respect everyones rifht to speak but when your entire economy is dependent on touris you may not want to piss the tourists off. As a world traveller, never have I bookes travel, arrived at my destination and received an alert from the embassy stating the transportation sector is on strike. Oh, and the ferry company did not bother to announce that the ferties would not be running. It is easier to travel elsewhere. Damn shame, wonderful and friendly people and such a
    Beautiful country.

    Dear Ralf, thank you for your message. Up to now, there has been no such announcement (by Air Traffic Controllers union).

(not all of them), private museums (NAM, Benaki, etc), unaffected.
    Anyway, we will keep you posted as always !

    You can also ask the port authorities of Mykonos, tel. 2289022218, if they will go on with the strike.

  21. Guillermo says:

    I was scheduled to take a ferry on September 3rd from Mykonos to Paros. Can anyone advice me on what I should do regarding a date change on my ticket? Or is it Lost?
    Thank you.

  22. admin says:
