Taking the train from Athens to Thessaloniki is one of the best ways to to go from the south of Greece to the north. The train tickets are pretty inexpensive, especially if you're travelling alone and not in a family (a few tickets might cost you over €10). I recommend taking the train over a bus, as the buses will take stops and the winding roads can you make you very dizzy, it is also easier to snack and have a drink on the rain! Trains are also more environmentally friendly!

The train system in Athens is really good. I don't remember the costs or anything, but I remember they are clean and efficient.

This is also one of the cheapest ways to travel. On top of the high gas prices (pre Ukraine invasion) there are several tolls that add up very quickly, and some of the tolls aren't cheap (€45).

Wow €45 is quite a lot..... The tolls keep getting higher and higher!

This particular toll is so high because it's being used to finance a bridge... You can easily spend 100+ euros at the tolls traveling through Greece.

I find that the trains are much better because the roads in Greece tend to be very windy and twisty and make me nauseous so its difficult to take a bus. Would recommend driving or taking a train for sure.
 

Greece returns to ‘normal’ Easter tourism after two years pandemic hiatus!

What place in Greece do you regret travelling to?

I thought I'd ask a more of a provocative question on this forum. I'm absolutely in love with Greece, and I truly think that every single place in the country is beautiful. But of course, some things aren't for everyone. Which makes me ask the question, what place in Greece do you regret travelling to? I can't wait to see some of these answers and debate in the threads!!

How expensive is it to travel around the Ionian islands by boat?

Chartering a boat to travel around the Greek Islands is something that I've always wanted to do but that I always assumed wasn't feasible. Has anyone done this with a big group and found that it's a little bit cheaper? Are there any packages or any tips that you recommend for going around the island that would make this a little bit cheaper?
