      Bus to Meteora in Greece

      Tirana Feb 13, 2017 at 12:46 PM

      I am hoping to take a bus from Tirana to the Meteora Monasteries in Greece. I think the towns near the monasteries are called Kalambaka (or Kalabaka) and Kastraki. Does anyone have any information on timetables, etc?

      Alternatively, if there is no bus going this route, I would like to take the bus from Tirana to Athens. Same question, does anyone have any info or advice?

      Thanks in advance for any information, it will be very much appreciated.

      Thanks for the information that the bust has disappeared and been replaced by a small plaque.

      In its place there is a new bust of a fully bearded guy. I assume he is another partisan, or hero or local dignitary. Could anyone tell me more please?

      I would like to visit Durres in October. Can anyone recommend a place to stay? I would prefer something private or pension, not a hotel.

      Bitola (MAC) - Durres (AL) - Ancona (IT)

      by akselek Online Now Jan 13, 2006 at 5:30 AM

      Hey everybody!

      I'm planning to visit a friend of mine in Bitola, Macedonia, in April and then go to another friend in Perugia, Italy. My idea was to go from Bitola to Durres and then take a ferry to Ancona. But my Macedonian friend warned me that it would be too dangerous / impossible to make that trip...

      My questions:

      1. Is there a bus connection between Bitola and Durres? Or can I change somewhere (like Tirana)?

      2. How would you rate the safety of such a trip?

      3. How are my chances to get a ferry from Durres to Ancona without a reservation? (I assume that I can't schedule everything because from what I heard, schedules are not quite reliable in that area)

      If you could help me out with any of these questions, I would be very grateful!
