GETTING TO CHANIA

Cretemap.png

The Chania International airport is located at a short distance from the center of the town. It receives frequent domestic flights from Athens with Olympic and Aegean Airlines, as well as international flights (both regular and charter) from many European cities. There is a local bus that can take you from the airport to the Central Bus Station (KTEL), located at Square 1866, in the city center. Bus tickets from the airport to Chania city center cost 2.50€. A taxi from the airport to the center would probably cost 20-25€.

The next closest airport is the one in Heraklion but the bus journey to Chania takes 3 hours. It would make sense to fly to Heraklion only if interested in spending some time in the area prior to joining the program in Chania. There are also frequent ferry services from Athens (Piraeus), the trip taking 9 hours.


The hotel

Accommodations will be provided and lectures will take place at hotel Nefeli which receives high marks and excellent reviews in several travel related websites. Nefeli Hotel is perfectly located for exploring Chania and the surrounding areas, just 50 meters away from the central bus station and less than a 5 minutes walk from the Old Town.
