Generally not required for stays of up to 90 days; however, travelers from some nations may require a visa, so double-check with the Greek embassy.


Seasons:
Shoulder (April, September & October)
Accommodation can drop by 20% and temperatures can be milder. 

 

High Season (May to August)

Cheap-O-Air

If you can’t find a flight, you can fly into Athens and take a coach to Lefkas.

If you’re planning on taking the coach to Lefkas, this will take about the same time as a flight from Athens if you consider door to door time, check in, security, then taking a 45 minute taxi from Preveza to Lefkas.  The coach will be considerably cheaper at €36 instead of the cost of the flight (approx €180 per person) and a €50 taxi from the airport to Lefkas.  

You can take the 93 bus from Athens airport which will take you directly to the bus terminal.

Depending on the traffic, it is approx. a 45-minute drive and it will cost about Euro 40–45 (luggage included). 1. The public bus which will take you directly outside the marina (the bus stop is called EDEM). 

 

The metro (subway) that will take you to Syntagma Sqr. (Athens centre). From there, you can get the Tram Line to Alimos marina (EDEM stop). The metro runs every 30 minutes from 05.30 to 00.20 on a daily basis. The ticket costs Euro 8 (with further discounts for more people) which also covers the change to the Tram line.
