Hora in detail

Flights & getting there

While Hora is easily reached by road, it’s much more atmospheric to hike up through the woods. Following the Byzantine footpath, signposted off the road roughly 10 minutes up from Skala, takes around 40 sweaty minutes. Allow extra time to stop off at the Monastery of the Apocalypse en route. A public bus heads to Hora around seven times daily (€2 flat fare); see www.patmosbus.gr.
