buying plane tickets to Greece

by xymmot

Should I buy a plane ticket BCN>ATH in Barcelona from a agency or do it on line
best I can find is 337 euros rt July/29>rtAug /26. Is it cheaper to buy it in Spain ow. Sometimes I do it in Greece and it is cheaper. what is your opinion.?

Re: buying plane tickets to Greece

which airline you are looking at?

Vueling is 270 euros but then you have to book asap...

flexible?

Re: buying plane tickets to Greece

My opinion is that it is always better to buy online in advance from the airline concerned. That's how it works in Europe, at least for within-Europe routes.

You've left it late for best fares. There are no last-minute cheap fares.

Look at www.whichbudget.com for carriers and routes and www.skyscanner.net for carriers & fares for your route/dates.

Cheapest for your dates is with Vueling, at around 230 euro, or Iberia starting from around 300 euro.

Re: buying plane tickets to Greece

Thanks guys, I see Vueling, I can buy a one way for 130 euro. but ath>bcn is 140, Swiss air has 340USD rt but 8 hr layover in Zurich which I like, but don't want it coming back. Vueling is 338USD but weird time in Athens, arrive 310 am.I must decide if Zurich layover is worth it because the town is 12mins by train to central. If I want the Swiss air one way , it is 706usd. I just do not know how the airlines price these things. Thanks again Cheers Tommy x.....still open for more opinions

Re: buying plane tickets to Greece

by leics

They price them according to the market but cheap last-minute fares do not generally exist here. Airfares are priced to encourage booking well in advance and, as I said, rise the nearer you get to departure.

So you need to make your decision soon.

There is nothing to stop you flying out with one airline and back with another if you find flights and fares to suit.

Re: buying plane tickets to Greece

I guess Swiss air would be the better option as you are interested in Zurich also... you may also try http://matrix2.itasoftware.com/ should you want a longer layover at Zurich

czhech Air also have good deals should you want to kill birds with one stone...

btw, low-cost carriers are based on point-to-point model, i.e. there retrun fare is the straight sum of two one way fares, while regular ones run on complete trip basis, I guess something to do with load factor (or seat factor)

anyways, try the above website, it gives some great deals for regular airlines

have luck...

leics, I really like that skyscanner.net, thanks for the info, I used it before when you reply on another post, but I forgot about it. Thanks

Re: buying plane tickets to Greece

by leics

It is a pretty good site, agreed. At the very least it gives you all the carriers (direct and indirect) so you know where to look further........

Maybe you can check it at this websit: www.edreams.com I bought some cheap ticket by it.

Travel Tips for Barcelona

THE HISTORY OF BARCELONA

by Maria_75

Romans came to this place more than 2000 years ago, and founded the city of Barcino. They chose to build the city on a sandy enclave on the northeastern Iberian coast, situated between the mouths of two rivers, Llobregat and Besós, and protected by the Collserola mountainrange.

This was a very strategic position, well communicated by land and sea, and protected by the landscape and the citywalls. Over the centuries the city grew to become the capitol of Catalunya and Spains main tradingport.

by eladr

Juan miro's works : 'the woman and the bird' statue. (although i didnt notice where the woman and where the bird...) some words on juan miro. Joan Miro was probably one of the greatest artists of our time. Born in Cataluna, in Spain, on April 20, 1893, he was raised by a family who did not support his artistic endeavors, and, incidentally, forced him to become a bookkeeper. If it were not for his having a nervous breakdown, he would never have travelled to his parents' cabin in Montroig, and would never have discovered his love for the Catalunian landscape. He studied in Paris with Pablo Picasso, and also spent time living as a starving artist with Andre Masson. On October 12, 1929, he married Pilar Juncosa in Palma de Mallorca, and they settled in Paris. In 1959, he wins the 1958 International Guggenheim Award. In 1968, he recieved an honorary Doctorate by Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachussetts. on June 18, 1976, he even had a foundation began in his honor, 'Joan Miro Foundation', which is still being looked after by his followers and students in Spain. In 1979, he was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the University of Barcelona. And, on December 25, 1983, Joan Miro perished in Palma de Mallorca.

Please , if you have the opportunity, enjoy April 23rd Sant Jordi! Saint George is the Catalunya patron. This day girls are given a rose and boys are given a book by girlfriends, wife or friends! It is pretty to enjoy a day with culture and flowers. (In the picture my 98'Sant Jordi's roses) .

Vic vs Girona

by richard3206

If you only have a limited time, and can't decide between Vic and Girona, you can easily do them both in a day. Take the Renfe (Suburban) line to Vic, then a bus (about every two hours) to Girona, and return by Renfe (Intercity) to Barcelona. The trip by bus is through rugged mountans and traditional farms, and is a highlight of the day.

btw, both Vic and Girona are major towns (cities) so if you expect traditional towns (as I did), you'll be a bit disappointed. But having said that, the old towns have very interesting buildings and are worth visiting.

Gastronomic route: El Xató

by Belsaita

The Xató is a salad. Someone can find funny that there is a region where people rave for a salad dish, to such extent that they made a gastronomic route about it. But it is not an usual salad, if made properly and with fresh ingredients it's delicious, and a fine example of true Mediterranean cuisine.

Xató has only a secret: its sauce. Made with local products as almonds, hazelnuts, garlic, a special dried red pepper (nyora), some bread to thicken, and of course prime quality olive oil. All this is mixed by hand using a mortar. Like most popular dishes, each house has its own version. Spread this delicious sauce over a mix of lettuce leaves (typically curly sweet endives, even my family likes more roman lettuce), salty and oil-preserved fishes (cod, anchovies, tuna), olives and sometimes other vegetables.

At my hometown, Vilanova i la Geltrú, xató is typically eaten at the Thursday of Carnival, with local sausages and ham, cod preserve and an assortment of omelettes (with potato, white beans, spinachs...). Yummy!

You can eat it at many towns in the areas of Garraf and Penedés, easy to reach from Barcelona (see my above tips for transportation to Vilafranca del Penedés, Sant Sadurní d'Anoia, Vilanova i la Geltrú and Sitges). Have it as main or side dish, ideally accompanying other of the excellent products of the area: fresh fish, sausages, etc. And, of course, some local wine to drink. Ideally, a dry white Penedes or brut Cava. Cheers!
