Overview

Visit the incredible archeological heritage Unesco-listed or bask on a sunny island beach. Beauty is everywhere in Greece.

The national railway company that operates passenger trains in Greece is known as the Hellenic Railways Organisation (OSE). In Greek it is written out as Οργανισμός Σιδηροδρόμων Ελλάδος (Ο.Σ.Ε.). Travellers can take the train to travel on major routes such as Piraeus to Athens, Athens to Larissa and Thessaloniki, Athens to Corinth and Kiato, as well as Thessaloniki to Idomeni. There are three types of train service in Greece, the regular rail service, the express trains and the Intercity trains. The latter are the fastest way to commute between two cities and require a seat reservation.

Cityscape

The train’s connections between big cities and even small town are numerous in Greece. It will be easy to reach your touristic destination. Visit the Bohemian style’s city of Thessaloniki, then board the 6 hours Intercity night train to go to Athens. There, antique sites such as the Acropolis, the Parthenon or Poseidon’s temple are waiting for you.

Landscape

Miles of coastlines peppered with majestic ancient ruins, rolling landscapes and beautiful views will be a delight for your eyes. One of the best way to enjoy is visiting Greece travelling by train. Notice that everywhere you will stay, you won’t be more than forty miles far from the sea.

Take home

If you want typical souvenirs from Greece, board a train to Mykonos or go to Crete, you’ll find funny holiday gifts. If it’s rugs, gold jewellery or flea market you’re after, wander around the antiques of Athens. In Loaninna, copper and brassware sold can be a good idea if you have enough space in your luggages.

Eat & Drink

Food from Greece is concocted with Mediterranean products such as olives, tomatoes, grapes or lemons. You should also test lamb, seafood, legumes, cheese and Yogurt. If you want to taste something to drink, try the Ouzo, but with moderation, or you will regret it the next day…

New Perspective

Hop on train to Volos and enjoy this modern city port, with a great waterfront and luxurious shops.

    "The train departed on time and arrived on time. The conductor was polite and multilingual. The only issue was that someone was sitting in my allocated seat but that did not bother me as there were other seats available that had the same comfort level. "

    "Would thoroughly recommend travelling by train from Paris to London. Train was easy to access, comfortable and affordable. The weather conditions delayed departure time however that was unavoidable. First class carriage was very comfortable and the breakfast served was an unexpected delight. Will certainly repeat this experience in the future. "
