Get in[edit]

By plane[edit]

The closest airport is "Alexander the Great" airport about 20 km from Kavala. Planes, mostly touristic charters, fly all over Europe.

Air Berlin [1] will operate every Monday and every Friday from 2 May 2008 to 31 October 2008 (Flights to/from Berlin, Hamburg, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Munich, Nuremberg, Vienna). Aegean [2] (Flights to/from Athens daily)

By regional coach[edit]

Interurban coaches ("KTEL" buses) are by far the most convenient way to travel around Greece, as well as for intra-regional travelling. There is frequent bus service from Athens Kifisos Station to Xanthi, as well as from Thessaloniki bus terminal "Macedonia" to Xanthi.

By train[edit]

Trains OSE [3] connect Xanthi to other cities in Greece. Travelling with ordinary trains can be cheaper, although a little bit slower, whereas choosing a fancy faster Intercity train will cost the same amount of money, or even more than a KTEL bus.
