- and Diaporos Island.
Getting there by bus from Thessaloniki you take the KTEL (KTEL) busses, which travels three times a day from the bus station in Thessaloniki to Sithonia. From the airport you should best take a taxi to the bus station. The bus goes around the peninsula and stops at any place.
The best way to explore the peninsula is by car or motorbike. The main roads are quite well developed, the signs in order. Only when you leave the main roads, it can be quite adventurous. Many are also traveling by bicycle here. But Sithonia is very mountainous and the routes are not suitable for inexperienced cyclists. And cycling is also not without danger, because many drivers, especially buses and trucks, hardly take account of cyclists.
