Our first advice would be to rent a car directly at the airport of Athens or Preveza airport.The journey to Paleros is around 4 or 5 hours. This allows you to enjoy your stay on Paleros further, by giving you easy access to shopping and sightseeing. Although this solution may be slightly more expensive, it is a more comfortable option than taking the bus.
However, if you do decide on the latter option, know that you can reach Paleros through Bonitsa bus station that is 15 min away from Paleros town.It has directly connections from Athens and is the hub of mainland transport.
The station’s new computerized system issues tickets with numbered seats which you should use to avoid potential confusion, although outside the town it’s normal to pay on board and sit anywhere.
The cost ranges from 30 to 40 euros for the trip between Athens and Vonitsa town. It will be necessary to go to Kifisos, which is the main bus station in Athens.Then from the main bus station, you can take a bus travelling to Bonitsa located in the box / line 39. You should have around 4 departures daily during the summer. The following times may be approximately accurate, though do check with the bus company before your departure to confirm times (www.ktel.org or +30 26430 22500 ).
