The Railway Network
The biggest cities in the Greek mainland are also the ones with the main train station. The Athens station is called Larissis Station and is located in Athens 104 44. The other one is in Thessaloniki at the following address: Monastiriou 87, Thessaloniki 546 27. Besides these there are other stations in smaller cities, forming the following lines: Athens – Thessaloniki, Athens – Patra, Athens/Thessaloniki –Alexandroupoli, Athens/Thessaloniki – Florina and finally Athens/Thessaloniki – Kalambaka.
In recent times significant improvements have been observed in the Greek railway. The trip from Athens to Thessaloniki used to take 6 hours, but with the newer trains it’s been reduced to 4 hours.
