coming from australia, a few questions

We are planning to come here in late December and will be in Nice (France) before we go.

Is our best option to fly here or another alternative? My husband has family here so we have to go!

How long from Thessaloniki to Athens? Bus, Train or Fly??

Thanks in advance

Hey mella2007....You're best option would definetely be to fly.. do not believe there are direct flights from Nice to Salonika so you will most likely have to make a plane-change...Salonika/Athens as well is best flying (and quick...about a 35 min flight) Check out www.aegeanairlines.com which many times has some great specials..as well as www.olympicairlines.com... Would not suggest the bus...can take anywhere from 7-9 hours!....there is a new 'express' train as well taking about 4 hours I believe but have never taken it...although have journeyed on the older 'longer' run which can take 7-8 hours..do not recommend that either:)...Salonika is an incredible City...You will definetely have fun exploring this place and environs...I, too, have family 'up there' .. if it's your first visit, get ready for a nice surprise/treat:) You will totally Enjoy!
