How to travel from Meteora to Delphi

Traveling from Meteora to Delphi is a question we encounter a lot and we know it can be quite confusing at times. This blog post is meant to end that confusion.

The only reasonable way someone can get from Meteora to Delphi is by bus. Yes, we know, there is also a train that can get you up to a point but really, it is not worth it!

Now that we’ve cleared this out let’s move on to your different options. There are two ways one can get to Delphi and it all goes down on the day of your travel.

    You mean driving a rental car isn’t an option?

      Dear Danny,

      Of course this is an option. This blogpost covers traveling from Meteora to Delphi using public transportation.

    Hello, my daughter and I are traveling the opposite way: from Athens to Delphi, Tuesday May 29, one night there; from Delphi to Meteora (Kalampaka) Wednesday, May 30, 2 nights there, and from Kalampaka to Athens on June 1. What are the bus/train schedules to go this way? Thank you in advance.

    Hello there – This is such fabulous information. Can you let me know whether there is a way to buy the direct bus option from Kalampaka to Dephi online? I will need to take that bus this Sunday. Or can i buy it on the spot? Thank you very much!

      tickets are bought onsite and can’t be bought online. just make sure that the last direct bus to Amfissa (2pm) will still be in Trikala since my bus from Kalambaka arrives at Trikala without seeing the bus to Amfissa (which is a town away from Delphi) through Patras. so i rode the bus to Lamia from Trikala to Delphi instead. hope this will be of help.

      tickets are bought onsite and can’t be bought online. just make sure that the 2pm last bus to Amfissa through Patras at Trikala will still be at Trikala once the bus you’ll take, if ever, from Kalambaka reached Trikala because my bus to Amfissa through Patras from Trikala left even before my bus from Kalambaka arrived. if that happens, show your ticket and change it to one going to Lamia and from Lamia buy a ticket to Delphi. hope this will be of help.

      tickets can only be bought onsite and not online. just make sure that, if you choose to take the 2 pm last direct bus, the bus to Amfissa through Patras from Trikala will still be in Trikala once your bus from Kalambaka arrives Trikala because the bus to Amfissa from Trikala that i should have taken left before my hus from Kalambaka arrived Trikala. if that happens to you, show your ticket to the ticket officer and have it change to Lamia and from Lamia buy a ticket to Delphi. hope this will be of help.

    Hi,
    Is this information still valid for summer 2019?

    Thank you!

    Hi. The “direct bus” option does not appear on the KTEL-Trikala website. The most similar option arrives at Amfissa at 18:15 but depart from Amfissa at 20:00, arriving at Delphi at 20:55. http://www.ktel-trikala.gr/?module=default&pages_id=40&lang=en

    Hi! I’m confused, so on Sundays the route operates only in afternoon? I need to clarify it because I was planning to leave meteora on sunday to visit delphi but that time of departure is too late and I dont want overnight in Delphi, just wanted to go early and visit the area in one day then head to athens .

    I hope to use this bus early September 2019. Do you know if it will be offered then?
