Travel by Car
Macedonia is a nice region to explore by car all year round. There are many car rentals at the airport of Thessaloniki, in Pieria, Kavala and Halkidiki, that constitute the most tourist regions of Macedonia. Roads in Macedonia are good, especially the National Highway Athens-Thessaloniki and the Egnatia Odos Igoumenitsa-Alexandroupolis. The country roads are good but have only one line, so extra attention is required.
Travel by Bus
