      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 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,

    • Travelling from Athens to Patra

      by Md613 Online Now Mar 18, 2010 at 11:09 AM

      My mother, sister and I will be arriving in Athens on a Friday night and will travel onward to Patra the next day. We have decided to stay in the Plaka district (@ Hotel Nefeli) for the night before we leave for Patra the next day. I have been researching the best way to travel to Patra from Athens and have found many that recommend by bus and many say by train.

      I understand that there is no direct train route to Patra from Athens. However, how difficult is it to reach the train that is needed to take us to Patra from the Plaka area of Athens? Could we get lost easily, misdirected, etc? I have a preference for the train so that we can have a more scenic view as we travel to Patra. Yet, if it will be a troublesome way to travel, than I would rather we start our trip with a little less hassle and take the bus.

      Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Including, if the Hotel Nefeli is a decent accomadation for one night. Thank you!!

I am arriving at Patras at 1700 hours and leaving from Piraeus at 2300 hours and thought I had allowed enough time. Now I have heard that it can take about an hour from the time the ferry arrives at Patras harbour entrance to when I disembark, and that I must be at Piraeus 2 hours before the departure of the ferry.
