Tilos Trails

How to get Around

Ok , so this is a web site about walking, but sometimes you need to know how you can get to the start of a walk or return when maybe you're either too hot or just too tired!

Bus

There is a very good municipal bus service. However you have to understand that as it is a 'municipal' bus service, it is here to serve the whole community including visitors. Therefore the timings can be a 'little' out.

The time keeping from Megalo Horio, which is where all journeys start from is usually fairly accurate but the timings in Livadia can be slightly variable!!

The bus leaves Megalo Horio and Livadia at the above times. Its route according to the timetable is

Megalo Horio > Eristos Beach > Ag.Antonis > Megalo Horio > Livadia

and

Livadia > Megalo Horio > Ag. Antonis > Eristos > Megalo Horio

This can depend on the driver knowing where people are and when and where they want to go. Therefore you might find yourself having a tour of the island on the way to your destination as the route fluctuates according to the needs of the locals or visitors.

One other thing you should note is that the 0820 from Livadia almost always leaves late during school term as it waits for the last child to arrive. The 1245 from Megalo Horio brings the little darlings home.

Try to take a leaf out of the Greek peoples' book. They can be quite philosophical! here are a couple of expressions to ponder while you are waiting.

'Time is an idea in the mind of God'

and

'The Greek definition of a 'minute':- an elastic unit of time'

SUNDAY SPECIAL
