Getting a Bus from Athens

Getting a bus to Meteora is a bit more tricky than getting a train. The bus station is located near Kato Patissia (green line) station. There are a few ways to reach it.

  1. From any metro line, change at Monastiraki station and get into Green line heading to Kifissia.
  2. Get off at Kato Patisssia station and either walk about 1km to the bus station or get a taxi to get you there. The taxi should cost 3.20 Euro plus any extra charges for arriving at a bus station but it won’t go over 5 Euro.
  3. If you are going to get a taxi then you should tell the driver to get you to Liosion Station and not Athens bus station.

At the bus station, you should get a bus to Trikala, which is the big city near Kalampaka and Meteora. Once you get to Trikala you can catch a bus to Kalampaka.

Getting a Bus from Thessaloniki

Getting a bus from Thessaloniki to Meteora is as easy as it is getting a train! Again, there are two ways you can reach the bus station (KTEL), public busses and taxi.

Getting to the bus station from the airport is probably the easiest thing is Thessaloniki, as public bus line 78 (or 78N at night) starts at the airport and ends at the bus station. So just hop on and enjoy the ride! If you are not going to the bus station from the airport, other lines that can get you there are: 1, 8, 12, 45, 80, 81, 82A, 82B, 82E, 82K, 89A, 89B.

At the bus station you should get a bus to Trikala, which is the big city near Kalampaka and Meteora. Once you get to Trikala you can catch a bus to Kalampaka.
