Istanbul to Thessaloniki. Any links to train or bus info? Worth taking a bus and stopping in Alexandrapouli or Xanthi?
Looking to start in Istanbul and make my way to Thessaloniki. Wondering about any worthwhile stops en route (small coastal villages) or if I should just get a train or bus the Thessaloniki and explore from there. Any train or bus info much appreciated.
We didn't go that direction from Istanbul but spent 3 weeks exploring Turkey and bus travel is great over there. Easy to get tickets as well. For international trips you might need to book at the train station near Eminonu (can't remember spelling). We went from there to Bulgaria border by bus and then a train from the Bulgaria border.
Buses within Turkey to other Turkish cities are the best I've been on and after wifi, snacks and drinks! over 8 years ago
