Public transfers: In Megalochori village lies the 12th stop of the bus route Fira > Akrotiri. Once in Megalochori, Symposion is about a 10-minute walk away.
Fira is where the central bus station of the island is located. There are bus connections between this bus station and the most areas of the island. There are buses to Akrotiri approximately every 1.5 hours. Consider that time schedules might change according to the season. Check the official timetables here. Tip: Since buses don’t always stop in every scheduled stop of their itinerary, our advice to visitors is to inform the driver about their final destination, so that he makes a stop there.
