Your Arrival in Larissa
Larissa is located at the centre of Greece and has a good transportation system with the largest cities, Athens and Thessaloniki, where the main international airports located.
We usually suggest the students to book a flight to Thessaloniki because it is closer to Larissa however sometimes air fares are cheaper when you choose as a destination the city of Athens. Below we describe how you may reach Larissa from both cities.
If you land in Thessaloniki (Macedonia Airport) you can get a bus (costs about 1€ and it longs 45 minutes) which goes to the central train station or the coach station. Taxis are also available, however, they are more expensive.
From central train station you can catch the train to Larissa which longs between 60-90 minutes and costs 7-20€(one way) respectively. Suburbian (proastiakos) lines are cheaper than the fast and express lines (22,5 return).
From coach station the trip to Larissa costs around 15 €(one way) and longs just less than 2 hrs.
If you choose to land in Athens International Airport then your trip to Larissa will be longer.
Basically you have to get underground lines (blue line and then red line with direction to Agios Antonios) or suburbian line (there is one change) to reach the Athens central train station (which called Larissa station stop for the underground).
When you reach Larissa train station (in Athens) then you will catch the train to Larissa city. Trip is around 4 hrs by train and ticket price costs approximately 30€ (one way); however if you pay the ticket by web it is going to be cheaper.
From the coach station you pay 30€ (one way) to go to Larissa and longs around 4 hrs.
