Travel Information

The airport closest to the conference venue is that of the city of Chania . The Orthodox Academy of Crete (OAC) is located 39km west of the airport. The easiest way to reach the academy from the airport is via taxi (appx. fare 8.000drs=24Euros. The algorithm is: 136 drx per km, 50 drx per piece of luggage plus a 300 drx airport surcharge.). The cheapest (but inconvenient) possibility is to take the bus from the airport to the city of Chania and then take the bus to Kolymbari. This, however, will bring you about 1km before the location of the OAC.

In case you need to fly to Heraclion there are 3 ways to reach OAC: A taxi would cost around 30.000drs for the trip. You can take the bus from Heraclion to Chania (one bus per hour). It takes 3hrs to reach Chania and then you may take a bus or taxi to Kolymbari. Finally you can rent a car and drive.
