Getting to Volos and the Conference venue (Click here to download the PDF version)
The city of Volos is well connected with both Athens and Thessaloniki (Salonica) where the two main international airports of Greece are situated.
Volos also has an airport but with limited connections, used mainly for charter flights during the summer. You can use this airport, if you can find convenient flights to and from Volos airport. It is only 40 min away from the city center and the Conference venue.
Thessaloniki airport (https://www.skg-airport.gr) is fairly well connected with many international flights and more convenient as a choice. From the airport you can get a bus (or a taxi) outside the arrivals hall to either the intercity bus station KTEL Thessaloniki (https://ktelthes.gr/) or the main train station.
If you opt for the train there are frequent services to Larissa (1hr 30min) and then a connection to Volos (50min).
If you choose the intercity bus, it will take you directly to Volos (2hrs) and a few minutes’ walk from the city center and the conference venue.
Athens airport (https://www.airport-athens.com/) is the main airport of Greece but it will take longer to travel to Volos. From the airport you can get a bus (Χ93) outside the arrivals hall to either the intercity bus station (KTEL LIOSION-STATHMOS IPERASTIKON LEOF)-7th bus stop)** or the main train station. The journey time from the Airport to the bus terminal takes about 1 hour, depending on traffic.
We recommend choosing the bus option, since it will take directly to Volos (4hrs) and a few minutes’ walk from the city center and the conference venue. Book your own tickets here: https://ktelvolou.e-ticketing.gr/Pages/Destinations.aspx
**Attention: If you take the bus option from the airport be sure to exit to KTEL LIOSION-STATHMOS IPERASTIKON LEOF (7th bus stop) and NOT to KTEL KIFISOU.
