How to reach Lefkada by bus from Thessaloniki and costs?

by nothingfail

How to reach Lefkada by bus from Thessaloniki in October and how much does it costs?

Re: How to reach Lefkada by bus from Thessaloniki and costs?

by MacedonianUK

Direct bus from Thesaaloniki to Ioannina, in Ioannina change bus to Perveza.
From Perveza to Lefkada.
This is not easy as there are not many buses and the connections are not good.
Once in Lefkad, there are many local buses to travel around town.
Sorry I do not know the exact price on a bus ticket.
Another way is to takebus from Thessaloniki to Igumenitsa,than ferry from Igumenitsa to Lefkada

These are useful websites you might need:
http://www.lefkas.net/fromigoumenitsa.htm
http://greece-ferries.forth-crs.gr/english_int/npgres.exe?PM=BR

KETL is bus franchise around the country and they do not have centralised website. There are 61 franchises around the country & some of them do not have websites.
unfortunately
Perveza,Ioannina & Lefkada are without site.
THerssaloniki KTEL can be contacted here for further info:

Hope this helps.

Re: How to reach Lefkada by bus from Thessaloniki and costs?

yes, this was very helpful.

i already found on another site the cost from thess to lefkada town is about 40 euros one way by bus, which is much. i will try to find a car, which will be more cost efficient as there will be a few of us and we will travel from yambol, thrace, bulgaria.

by the way, my great grand-father was from kostur (kastoria). every 5th bulgarian today = ~ 1 500 000, in fact, has roots in macedonia. for us, makedonskite bugari it is very sad we (you and us) are made different today, since there are much more similarities between moesia, thrace & pirin macedonia (bulgaria) on one side and FYROM on the other. unification makes the power - soedinenieto ja pravi silata.

greetings from yambol, thrace, bulgaria

Good for you finding different page on internet which can help you!
BTW, this is Travel forum not political, so please leave my country & my people SPECIALLY me out of it!!!
I helped with the best of my abilities as I think that fellow traveller has to be helped once he/she asked, but I am not going to get involved in your Political/Racial or Religious needling masked under thin wail of travel question.
Bonn Voyage!

Travel Tips for Thessaloniki

great website for city overview

by magdaki

this tip is not about a "favourite thing" nor a "fondest memory". it is only here to give you a link to this website

http://www.thessaloniki360.com

an excellent work that gives 360 degree images of the city, overlaid on a map. i think it's both helpful for travellers and a good way to see images of the city even if you do not plan to travel here.

Just beside the white tower,...

by MITNIC

Just beside the white tower, you can have your coffee or any drink on board- same prise as a normal cafe, the boat is going around every hour in front of the esplanade of Thessaloniki.

Panagia Halkeon

by viddra

North of Egnatia Street, near the Ancient Agora, you'll find this church of Panagia Halkeon, dedicated to the patron saint of coppersmiths.

The area where it's located, used to be packed with coppersmith shops (halkadika).

The church was built in 1028 on a site where an ancient temple dedicated to Hephaestus or Caberius once stood.

Inside the church, there are important wall-paintings and the grave of its founder, Christophoros.

In front of the church, there's a beautiful garden.

Kleio Boat Bar

by hamouras

Kleio Boat Bar
Kleio is a boat that some people converted it to a bar. You can find it by the seaside usually near the port or near the White Tower. It has rock music and sometimes it makes a short trip in the gulf of Thessaloniki. No dress code applied.

Fresh Seafood

by Teo72 about If I can only remember :(

When you are walking along D. Gounari street towards the Rotunda of Saint George, just before you reach it, you'll see a small unassuming tavern to your left. It advertises fresh (& mainly grilled) seafood and if you love fish as much as I do, you must not miss it.
Also, if you go in any local tavern, don't miss souvlaki (grilled meat pieces on skewers; lamb is the usual meat for Greece) and uzzo or retzina (alcoholic drinks which you either hate or love). Grilled small octopus and calamari.
