When you arrive into Greece


Athens International Airport

The runways are approximately 4 kilometers in length. For more information on Athens International Aiport go to



The Metro line runs from the airport and costs about 8 euro and goes to Monastiraki, hitting all the metro stops in between include Syntagma Square (where you will have to change if you are going to Omonia Square or Makriani). The first train starts at 05:50am and the last one at 19:20pm and they run every 20 minutes.



Average taxi fares from the airport to the city centre, including the €3 starting fare and the €2 Attiki Odos toll, are about €15-25. You can catch these taxis from Door 4 to Door 1 of the Arrivals Level. Be careful of the taxi drivers as most will over charge you if they don’t think you are from there.



Five express buses offer round-the-clock services from the airport: the E92 from Kifissia, the E93 from the Kifissos Avenue inter-city bus depot, the E95 from Syntagma Square and the E96 from Piraeus and the E97 from the Dafni metro station.  The E94 from Ethniki Amyna metro station also runs between 6am and midnight.  An intercity bus from Rafina serves the airport between 6am and 9:20pm. They buses will every 10-20 minutes, 24 hours a day.






Thessaloniki International Airport is located 15km from the city and is located only 70km from the Macedonia border. Taxis and buses are avaiable from outisde the terminal building that will take you to the city centre. A taxi will cost around €6 and will take you around 20 minutes to get to the city centre. A bus will cost .50 Euro and bus number 78 will take you to the city centre and it will take around 30 minutes.

Thessaloniki is the main hub for international road and rail routes. From here there are at least two trains daily to each of Istanbul, Sofia, Skopje, and Belgrade; one of the Belgrade trains continues to Zagreb and Ljubljana. There are also buses to Turkey and Bulgaria (sometimes faster than the train), and to Tirana. If you are wanting to go to Alexandroupolis by train it will take around 7 hours. This is also the gateway city to the beautiful area of Halkidiki, which is located south of the city along the coast.




Kerkira International Airport is located 4km from the city centre of town. Taxis and buses are avaiable from outisde the terminal building that will take you to the city centre.

Corfu is in the Ionian Islands which makes its location easy accessible from all directions, but it's no quick hop to or from the Cyclades. Most travelers arrive through the southern Italian ports of Bari or Brindisi. The 8-hour ferry ride costs about 30 Euro per person and only 6 Euro with a Eurail pass.

That route is the most popular to Corfu and the rest of Greece. But you can also get to Corfu with the Pink Palace bus from Athens, by boat from Patras or by plane from Athens or other destinations.
