Railway connections are usually very limited, although services on the route Athens - Patra and the Northern Line are gradually improving.

Travel between the islands are, of course with the need to use the ferries. Ferry connections are extensive and provide a get for each of the 166 inhabited islands. Aircraft are relatively expensive - three or four times the cost for multiplying the ferry taking place on the board, while twice as compared to the cheapest cabin.

Travel by bus services cover major routes, both on the continent and islands. They are effective and universal. On the road sub-buses will operate less regularly and long stops, but even the most distant villages will be covered by the line connections.
