      transportation

      Rhodes (Island) Apr 2, 2014 at 8:12 PM

      We plan a family reunion meeting in Faliraki, Rhodes (12-14 persons, 3 babies). I have several questions regarding transportation:
      1) Is there a taxi service from the airport to Faliraki (Ladico Beach) and how much it ca cost
      2) Is there a service of hiring a van/ minivan with driver for a day trip around the island and how much it may cost?
      3) taxi service cost from Faliraki to Rhodes old city: does it operate on late nights?

      Thanks - HA

      Meteora - Litochoro by bus

      Greece Apr 16, 2014 at 12:07 AM

      Hi there!
      My husband and I are going to Halkidiki this may.
      We want to travel from Thessaloniki to Meteora by bus or train. There stay for a night and in the morning visit the monasteries. The same day (in the evening) we want to get to Olympus, Refuge A.
      I found such a useful bus schedule http://www.visitmeteora.travel/en/getting-to-meteora/getting-to-meteora-by-bus but still have some questions.
      I guess the best way is to get from Kalampaka to Trikala, there take a bus Trikala - Thessaloniki. Does it stop at Litochoro? And where can I find bus numbers, routes and stops?
      Does anyone have any advice?

      Ferries: 48hr rolling strikes still? Days of operation?

      Thessaloniki Apr 6, 2014 at 1:40 AM

      Hoping to catch a ferry from Thessaloniki or Kavala to Lesvos on Sunday, April 13. From my calculations, that Sunday would be a day that the ferries DO run... But I wouldn't bet the price of a hostel stay for 2 on it! :) It is unmercifully difficult to find information about options and timetables, etc, even when one goes into the ferry office at the port of Thessaloniki, which I did--they said to call back on Friday but we caught a bus to Toroni instead. Trying to decide when to head back up...

      Anybody have any insight into the murky depths that surround the ferry situation?

      Many thanks in advance,

      .A.

      Does anyone know if it is feasible to go from Katakolon to Olympia by train? Can train tickets be bought in Katakolon? Do the trains run on time? Is it a long walk from the port to the train station? Is it a long walk from the train station in Olympia to the historic sites?
