The starting point for a trip here is Thessaloniki.

Bus Thessaloniki - Kallithea

To get to Kallithea, you first need to get to the KTEL Halkidikis bus station. And already from it, tourists are transported to the resorts of Halkidiki - just transfer to the desired route. Comfortable buses run all day, but it is better to check the schedule on the official website of KTEL Halkidikis. A full ticket Thessaloniki - Kallithea will cost about 10 euros.

How to get from Thessaloniki Airport to Kalithea

You can get from Macedonia airport to Kallithea only with a transfer. Near the terminal there is a bus stop, from where buses number 79 depart along the route to the IKEA stop. There you need to get off and transfer to bus number 36 to KTEL Halkidikis. During the season there is also a direct route number 79A, connecting the airport and KTEL Halkidikis.

Taxi from Thessaloniki airport to Kalithea

You can take a taxi right at the airport. You won’t have to look for a taxi for a long time: cars are waiting for tourists at the exit from the terminal. However, this method will be the most expensive. It is more convenient to book an individual transfer in advance. Then the price is known in advance, plus it is more profitable than a taxi. On arrival, a driver with a sign will be waiting for you, and upon arrival he will help you with check-in, if necessary.

Please note: if you are planning to arrive overnight, you need to remember that an increased fare will be charged for a taxi ride. Therefore, it is worth booking a transfer from the airport to Kallithea in advance.

The average cost of a daily car rental is 35-60 euros, depending on the brand and the number of days.
