Greece the ideal destination








By Road

Greece's motorway network has been recently extensively modernized with major projects such as the Rion-Antirion Bridge which connects mainland Greece with the southern peninsula of Peloponnese, and Egnatia Odos (or Via Egnatia) a 670-km motorway that runs through Northern Greece and connects Igoumenitsa in Epirus with Alexandroupolis in Evros and Thrace regions, just a breath away from Istanbul.

Very modern and well organized road axis Athens-Thessaloniki (E 75), Athens-Corinth (E 94), Corinth-Patra (E 65), Patra-Pyrgos-Olympia (E 55), Thessaloniki-Kavala-Alexandroupolis (E 90), Igoumenitsa-Alexandroupolis (Egnatia Odos), Chania-Agios Nicholaos (Crete E 75) make traveling by car in Greece very easy. Car rental companies offer a wide range of vehicles at very competitive rates for a unique travel experience.

The bus is a very popular and for some areas the only mean of transportation for the intercity travel in Greece. The "K.T.E.L" is the agency managing all intercity buses. There is a K.T.E.L. station in every Greek prefecture, with the major ones in Athens and Thessaloniki.

Recorded route information of interurban busses (KTEL) all over Greece on a 24-hour basis is provided by dialing 14505.
