KTEL Thessaloniki bus map at My Favourite Planet

KTEL Thessaloniki bus company map of its operating area: Stavros, Olympiada and Asprovalta.
How to get to Stageira and Olympiada
by bus by taxi by car / bike
The site of the ancient city of Stageira, hometown of the philosopher Aristotle, is 700 metres south of the seaside village of Olympiada, on the northeast coast of the Halkidiki pensinsula.

See the map of Macedonia below.

If you want to ask anybody for the way to get there, ask for directions to Olympiada. Since there is another place called Stageira (see below), and many people do not know about Ancient Stageira, you may end up in the wrong place!

If you have your own transport, getting to Olympiada is quite easy. From Thessaloniki in the west or Kavala in the east, it takes about 2 hours by car.

You could also take a taxi, but at around 1 euro per kilometre, a taxi ride from Thessaloniki to Olympiada could cost you 90-100 euros.

There are no trains to Halkidiki, the only public transport is provided by buses.
 
Don't go to the wrong Stageira!
Ancient Stageira at Olympiada should not be confused with the modern village of Stageira, which is 25 kilometres further south and has no historical connection with Aristotle.

Many travel guides confuse the two places, a confusion made worse by the fact that the modern Stageira has an "Aristotle Park" with a modern statue of the ancient philosopher similar to that in Olympiada.

Modern Stageira, near Stratoniki and Stratoni, may be a nice place, but if you are travelling by bus and end up there, you may find it difficult to get from there to Olympiada. There is no bus connection between Stratoni and Olympiada.

See: How to get to Stageira and Olympiada
 
 
General notes about buses in Greece

In Greece cross-country and inter-city bus services are run by regional KTEL bus companies. Each has its own timetables, fares and routes to, from and around its own region.

There appears to be no coordination between the KTEL bus companies, and finding reliable current information is very difficult. The national KTEL website has carried no schedule information for several years; many local KTEL websites are only in Greek and often display out-of-date timetables.

According to the national KTEL website (ktel.org, Greek and English), you can telephone 14505 to find out about bus schedules anywhere in Greece. This number can only be accessed from within Greece, and queries are handled by a "fully automated voice portal, with speech recognition capabilities making your experience truly pleasant". There is a charge for this service.

Usually the best way to find information about buses is to ask locals or phone or go to the local bus station. Sometimes, getting the information you require at bus stations is like getting blood out of a stone, and it is even more complicated if you want to get on or off a bus somewhere along the route. More friendly staff will print out timetables for you.

On the other hand, once you actually get on your bus, it is the quickest, most economical and comfortable way to travel around Greece.

There are are fewer buses in winter (October - April) on many routes than in summer (May - September).

Although Olympiada is in Halkidiki (Chalkidiki, Chalcidice or Chalkidike; Greek, Χαλκιδική)
it is not on the Halkidiki bus network. Of course not, that would be too easy.
 
PLEASE NOTE

Since December 2014, buses from Thessaloniki to Asprovalta and Olympiada
no longer arrive and depart from the KTEL Thessaloniki bus station in the city centre.

Buses now arrive and depart from the large KTEL Macedonia inter-city bus station,
5 km west of the city centre. See How to get to Macedonia: Bus stations for details.
 

Buses from Thessaloniki to Olympiada

Buses between Thessaloniki and Olympiada are on the route to the seaside resort of Asprovalta, 78 km east of the city.

The route is:

Thessaloniki - Rentina - Stavros (change bus for Olympiada) -
Nea Vrasna - Asprovalta

(Information about these place below.)

Two buses a day travel to Olympiada via Stavros (15 km north of Olympiada). Usually you must change buses at Stavros.

See timetables and details below.

Buses on this route are operated by KTEL Thessaloniki bus company and arrive and depart from the large KTEL "Macedonia"
inter-city bus station, 5 km west of the city centre (see How to get to Macedonia: Bus stations for details and directions).

The KTEL Thessaloniki website, with timetables and fares,
in Greek and English:

www.ktelthes.gr/en/routes/municipality-of-thessaloniki.

Ticket office: +30 2310 595447, +30 2310 595449
Parcel services: +30 2310 595470

Timetable and ticket information is now also available
in Greek and English at the KTEL Macedonia website:

ktelmacedonia.gr/en/routes/tid=14

Neither website includes information about the routes taken by buses or the bus stops along the way.

Timetables and bus routes change from season to season according to mysterious bus company logic. Sometimes there are more buses than are shown on the schedules, particular in high summer (July - August). In winter (October - April) there are far fewer buses.

You buy your ticket at the KTEL Thessaloniki ticket booth inside the bus station, and the staff will tell you the number of the bus bay in the departures hall. The buses are orange and white, and the destination is usually written on a board in the front window. Tickets include your reserved seat number written in Greek, so ask about your seat number. There are toilets (free of charge), cafes, shops and a bakery in the bus station.

The ticket office is open every day 6:45 - 21:00.

All these buses currently travel on the old National Road EO2 (see below), along the south of Koroneia and Bolbi lakes, stopping at Nea Apollonia and other villages on the way.

It appears that the "EXPRESS" service along the A2 "Odos Egnatias" motorway has been suspended.

Journey times:
Thessaloniki to Stavros 2 hours; to Asprovalta 2.5 hours;
Asprovalta - Nea Vrasna - Stavros, 15-20 minutes;
Stavros - Olympiada, 15-20 minutes.

Fares to/from Thessaloniki (2019):
Apollonia 2.90 €, Nea Apollonia 2.90 €, Rentina 3.50 €,
Stavros 3.90 €, Olympiada 4.50 €, Nea Vrasna / Asprovalta 4 €

Fare Stavros - Olympiada (2019): 1.00 €

Tickets can not be booked in advance.

From Thessaloniki you must usually take the Asprovalta bus (see below) and change at Stavros for Olympiada. The bus from Stavros waits for the bus from Thessaloniki, which takes around 2 hours.

If you are in Stavros (see below), the bus stop is at the south end of the road through the town, near the roundabout. Tickets to Olympiada can be purchased from the newspaper kiosk (periptero) at the bus stop or on the bus.

The journey between Stavros and Olympiada is around 15-20 minutes.

In high season (July - August) there are sometimes direct buses from Thessaloniki to Olympiada.

Buses stop at the main square of Olympiada village (see Olympiada gallery page 4) and return to Stavros after a 5 minute stop.

From the main square it is just 10 minutes walk to the site of Ancient Stageira (see Ancient Stageira gallery pages 1-7).

Bus times are not convenient for those wishing to make a day trip from Thessaloniki or nearby villages. The alternative is to take one of the more frequent bus to Stavros (see Asprovalta buses below), then a taxi (see below) to Olympiada or the ancient Stageira archaeological site.

Some buses turn off the main road (National Road EO2) to stop at villages such as Nea Apollonia along the way. These diversions are usually only a few kilometres and increase the journey time slightly, but provide an important service to local people.

All buses stop at Rentina, just east of Lake Bolbi, where there are the remains of a Medieval castle and nearby the archaeological site of the ancient city of Arethousa (unfortunately nothing there to see).

For information about buses to other places in Halkidiki, see How to get to Macedonia.
 
KTEL Thessaloniki bus station, 17 Odos Irinis, Thessaloniki, Macedonia, Greece at My Favourite Planet

Bustalgia

The old KTEL Thessaloniki bus station, 17 Odos Irinis, central Thessaloniki.

The old bus station was very conveniently located in the city centre, but was too
small for the increasing number of passengers and was becoming somewhat
dilapidated. It was closed in December 2014, and KTEL Thessaloniki buses now
use the KTEL Macedonia inter-city bus station, 5 km west of Thessaloniki city centre.
 
Stavros, Vrasna, Nea Vrasna and Asprovalta

Places near Olympiada
None of the small seaside resorts north of Olympiada have have any particular tourist attractions, but are pleasant, relaxed stop-offs for travellers.

A taxi to Olympiada from Stavros costs 15 €, from Asprovalta 20 €
(see taxi prices below).

Stavros

(Σταυρός)

Around 70 km east of Thessaloniki (depending on route).
15 km north of Olympiada.
7 km west of Asprovalta.

The small seaside resort town Stavros (Σταυρός) stands on the road running along the coastal strip south from the west-east National Road EO2 (see below). After Stavros the coastal road continues southwards along the east coast of Halkidiki to Olympiada and on to Mount Athos.

It is a relaxed low-key resort, catering mainly for holidaymakers from Russia and Balkan and eastern Europan countries, mostly families. Accommodation consists of small hotels, pensions and apartments, which are quite full in summer. The beaches are among the woods at the south end of the town.

There is a small port, several shops, restaurants, bars, a post office and a bank (National Bank of Greece, 17 Papandreou Georgiou Street). Many of the shops close during the afternoon. There is a street market (bazaar) every Thursday morning at Ano Stavros, the upper part of the town.

There is a small park and promenade near to the bus stop

BUS STOPS

Buses from Thessaloniki run to the south end of the town. If you have to change bus for Olympiada, get off here.

Information about buses to Olympiada is available at the newspaper kiosk (periptero) on the main street opposite the town hall, where the bus stops. You buy your ticket on the bus.

Direct buses for Olympiada continue south from here along the coast road.

Buses for Nea Vrasna and Asprovalta turn around here and travel back to the National Road EO2.

Vrasna, Nea Vrasna and Asprovalta

(Βρασνά, Νέα Βρασνά, Ασπροβάλτα)

North of Stavros, the National Road EO2 runs along the coast northeastwards to the mouth of the Strymon River (24 km). The villages of Nea Vrasna and Asprovalta spread out along a 10 km stretch of excellent sandy beach to the east of the road.

They are nothing like traditional Greek villages, rather a modern ribbon development. It is difficult to see where one settlement ends and another begins. Groups of holiday homes built by people from Thessaloniki have been extended over the years, with the addition of small hotels and holiday apartments. As in Stavros and many other resorts in northern Greece, most of the holidaymakers are familes from the Balkans and eastern Europe.

Among the houses and along the beach are a number of shops (small supermarkets and bakeries), restaurants and bars. Along the west side of the main road at Nea Vrasna are three large supermarkets, including Lidl, each with its own car park.

BUS STOPS

Buses from Thessaloniki to Asprovalta run right to the end of the village, turn around and then head back for the city.

There are KTEL Thessaloniki bus stops around every 1.5 km along the road.

There are printed timetables for this service in Greek at some bus stops along the route, but there is no further information available at Asprovalta or Nea Vrasna.

Some bus stops also serve other bus companies, for example to Serres and Kavala (see below), but will not pick up passengers on the way to Thessaloniki.

Vrasna

(Βρασνά) also known as Upper Vrasna (Ανο Βρασνά, Ano Vrasna)

A small traditional village, 4.5 km north of and uphill from Vrasna Beach and 3 km north of National Road EO2. At the turn-off there is a bus stop for the Thessaloniki-Asprovalta bus. There are no buses up to the village.

The attractive village has a small shop, a taverna, a cafe, an old church and the ruin of a Byzantine tower.

Every 15th August there is a big celebration for the Assumption of the Virgin on the main square, with live Greek music and dancing until late into the night.

Vrasna Beach and Nea Vrasna

(Παραλία Βρασνά, Paralia Vrasna and Νέα Βρασνά, Nea Vrasna)

If you have to wait for an hour or more for a bus you could enjoy a quick swim at the excellent beach, 10 minutes walk from the bus stop. There are also a few shops, cafes and restaurants.

Asprovalta

(Ασπροβάλτα)

If there is a centre for this area it is Asprovalta. It has the most shops (small supermarkets, bakeries and an international press shop), bars and restaurants, two banks and a small tourist information office (19:00 - 21:00, summer only). Most businesses are on the main road and in the side streets. The post office and a tiny ethnological museum are on the sea front.

Although there was an ancient settlement here, part of which has been excavated by archaeologists, there is no sign of it.

Beyond Asprovalta: Argilos, Nea Kerdillia and Amphipolis

12 km east of Asprovalta is the archeological site of Argilos (an ancient sister colony of Stageira), currently being excavated by Greek and Canadian archaeologists. Further east at the village of Nea Kerdillia (14 km from Asprovalta), near the River Strymon, stands the Lion of Amphipolis, a late 4th century BC monument. 3 km north of Nea Kerdillia are the archaeological site and museum of Amphipolis itself (see Kavala page 5: sightseeing).

   
 
Other bus connections
Some - but ever fewer - buses from Kavala and Serres to Thessaloniki travel along the National Road EO2 and stop at Asprovalta and Nea Vrasna and near Stavros (on the main road outside the town).

Bus connections between Asprovalta and other towns to the east (East Macedonia and Thrace) have been drastically reduced since the opening of the new "Odos Egnatia" motorway (see below).

Before the motorway, all buses travelling the coastal route east of Thessaloniki used to pass through Asprovalta. Now most by-pass it.

In winter, when there are fewer buses anyway, the situation is worse.

Most schedules of KTEL bus companies do not give details of which routes buses take or at which towns and villages they stop.

Bus connections to/from Kavala

In winter there is now only one bus a day from Kavala to Asprovalta at 6 pm (there used to be one every hour).

Bus connections to/from Serres and Drama

There are daily bus connections from Serres (see below) and Drama to Asprovalta and Nea Vrasna, but they not pick up passengers from the latter two places for Thessaloniki.

KTEL Serres bus stop sign, Asprovalta, Macedonia, Greece
Buses between Thessaloniki (from the Macedonia KTEL inter-city bus station) and Serres are operated by KTEL N. Serres (ΚΤΕΛ Ν. Σερρών).

Tel: +30 2310 22822 and +30 2310 14505

Booking office at Thessaloniki KTEL Macedonia bus station: +30 2310 595446

From personal experience, I have found these telephone lines continually busy.

Website: www.ktelserron.gr (Greek only)

Timetable and ticket information is also available in Greek and English at the KTEL Macedonia website:

ktelmacedonia.gr/en/routes/list/tid=33

Once again, neither website includes information about the routes taken by buses or where they stop along the way.

The one-way bus fare between Thessaloniki - Serres is 9.00 €

Some of the bus services between Thessaloniki and Serres / Nigrita travel part of the way along National Road EO2 (see below), stopping at Rentina, just outside Stavros, then at bus stops along the coast to Nea Vrasna and Asprovalta. They turn inland and northwards at Nea Kerdylia and stop just outside Amphipolis.
Journey time Asprovalta - Serres, around 2.5 hours. Journey time Asprovalta - Amphipolis, around 30-45 minutes.

Buses will pick up passengers between Serres / Nigrita and Asprovalta / Stavros,
but NOT for Thessaloniki, for which you must use the local KTEL Thessaloniki buses from Asprovalta (see above).

Currently (summer 2019), the following Thessaloniki-Serres buses
stop at Nea Vrasna and Asprovalta:


Monday - Saturday 9:30, 13:30, 17:30

Sunday 13:30, 17:30

These times effectively rule out a day-trip to Serres from Olympiada, Stavros or Asprovalta, since the earliest bus at 9:30 arrives at Serres at 12:00 or later. The small Serres Archaeological Museum, the churches and most shops and businesses in the town close at 13:00.

Serres is an interesting Macedonian market town with some fine old churches, Ottoman buildings and an ancient acropolis area outside the centre (not much to see there, but a good view of the countryside from the top). However, neither the town or the public transport system are geared up for tourism, and there is little to do or see in the afternoon when everything is closed. Tourist information is non-existent, although a friendly hotel receptionist gave me some good tips and a map.

On the other hand, a day trip to Amphipolis is possible and recommended. The archaeological site and excellent Amphipolis Archaeological Museum are open every day 8:00 - 20:00.

To Olympiada by car or bike
Numerous firms in Greece rent a variety of cars, vans, motorbikes and scooters.
At present it is beyond the scope of this website to recommend companies.

From Thessaloniki there are three main routes to Olympiada.
   
1. By motorway

The new A2 (E90) "Egnatia Odos" motorway across northern Greece,
from Epirus in the west, via Thessaloniki, Kavala, Xanthi, Komotini
and Alexandroupoli, to the Turkish border and on to Istanbul.

See www.egnatia.eu

This is quickest way, taking 1.5 - 2 hours. Whether you are coming from the west via Thessaloniki, or from the east via Serres, Drama or Kavala, leave the motorway at exit number 26 (Rentina), then head east on National Road 2 for Stavros (about 10 km after the motorway exit).

You can also leave the motorway at exit number 27, just below the hillside village of Vrasna; above the coastal resorts of Asprovalta and Nea Vrasna. Follow the exit road southwards down to the coast. Turn right (west) at the junction with National Road EO2 (direction Stavros, Thessaloniki), then shortly afer turn left (south) for Stavros.

Drive straight through Stavros along its main street, and at the end of the village you will see signs for Olympiada, Stratoni and Ouranoupoli (which is the border for male-only Mount Athos peninsula). The coast road southwards takes you the 15 km to Olympiada.
It is the only road, so you can't miss it.

NOTE: Greek motorways are toll roads. During the recent economic crisis, Greeks have complained that the tolls are far too expensive, and many are avoiding the motorways and using the old national roads.

E90 "Egnatia Odos"
motorway
2. The old National Road 2 (EO 2)

(Greek, Εθνική Οδός 2, Ethniki Odos 2, abbreviated as EO2)

Before the motorway was built, this was known as the Odos Egnatias, roughly following the route of the ancient Roman Via Egnatia (see History of Stageira and Olympiada Part 7) from the Albanian border, across northern Greece to the Turkish border.

It is a bit slower, but it is a pleasanter drive, with less traffic; and if you're on a bicycle it is the flatter, least challenging route.

From the northeast of Thessaloniki the road passes the south of Koroneia and Bolbe (Volvi) lakes, and the ancient city of Apollonia (near the village of Nea Apollonia) and a Byzantine fortress at Rentina. Turn right at the junction for Stavros, and drive through town, then 15 km south along the coast to Olympiada.

For more information about the EO2, and the route eastwards to Kavala, Alexandroupoli and the Turkish border, see How to get to Kavala.
 
Greek National Road 2 (EO2), Macedonia, Greece

EO2 National Road
3. Inland through central Halkidiki

This is the real scenic route; the slowest but most interesting. From Thessaloniki's southeastern coastal suburb of Votsi take the National Road 16 (EO 16) southwards to Thermi. The road heads inland and winds up around plains and wooded mountains (the highest is the 1165 metre Oros Holomontas) of central Halkidiki, through the villages of Vasiliki, Agios Prodromos, Arnaia, Palaiochora, Neochora, modern Stageira (not to be confused with Ancient Stageira, see above) and Stratoniki.

The road then descends to the east Halkidiki coast. You turn left just before the seaside village of Stratoni and take the coastal road northwards for the final 15 km to Olympiada.

This road takes you past the main entrance to the site of Ancient Stageira, on the right 500 metres before you enter Olympiada village (see Olympiada gallery pages 1-7). We recommend that you park your vehicle in Olympiada and walk back to the site. The road is narrow and there are no parking places around the site. Your vehicle will be safer in the village. If you are travelling around on two wheels, you could ask the friendly people at Hotel Liotopi or Hotel Germany to keep an eye on your baggage while you explore the site.
