Getting around

Buses for Kastraki (€1.20) leave about every 45 minutes from the Plateia Dimarhiou fountain, and two of these (9am and 1.30pm Monday to Friday, and 8.20am and 1.20pm Saturday and Sunday) continue on to Meteroa’s Moni Megalou Meteorou.

Taxis (opposite the fountain) go to Kastraki (€3) and all the monasteries (for example, Moni Megalou Meteorou for €6). Some drivers speak English, German or French, and you arrange a taxi tour for about €20 per hour.

Bikes and motorcycles (€6 to €18) can be hired from the Hobby Shop (/fax 24320 25262; Patriarhou Dimitriou 28), opposite Rex Hotel.
