TRAVELLING IN GREECE
Flag-Map of Greece

   During the past few decades the transportation network of the country was modernised and impressively upgraded and, as a result, Greece today has an integrated transportation structure allowing fast and safe travelling all over the country. Moreover, new projects are continuously being programmed, so that the infrastructures of the transportation grid of the country become more and more reliable.

   The operation of the Rio-Antirio Bridge (connecting the western Peloponnese with western Central Greece), the longest cable-stayed suspension bridge in Europe, and of the motorway “Egnatia Odos” are of great importance for the improvement of road transportation in Greece; the motorway (total length: 670 km) crosses Northern Greece and connects the port of Igoumenitsa (Epirus) on the west and the district of Thrace on the east.

   Travelling between cities and the villages is ensured by a very good network of modern buses (KTEL), with a plethora of scheduled routes throughout the 24-hour period. A large part of the mainland is covered by the Greek railroad network, where existing lines were upgraded, new ones created and highly modern and fast-rolling stock was introduced. In the sea transport sector, many improved ports exist throughout the country, linking Mainland Greece with the Aegean and Ionian Islands, and Crete.
Moreover, 44 airports are operating in Greece which fall into three categories:
- State International Airports
- State Domestic Airports
- Municipal Airports
