Galaxidi

Galaxidi centre

Galaxidi is a small seaside town in Sterea Hellada. During the summer it is a popular sea resort for travellers that stop on the way between Patras and Delphi. The tourism industry combined with agriculture & fishing are the main source of income.

Understand

Galaxidi has a long history (as pretty much everything in the area) and was a mighty marine power in ancient times. The centre of the town is well maintained and the lush buildings are witness to the long gone wealth. Today tourism is the main source of income but it remained a calm atmosphere. Only in the fishing harbour tourists are the clear majority.

Get in

There are regular buses that travel on the Athens, Delphi, Patras route but due to the frequent strikes it is better to travel with a car.

Get around

Walking is the best option as streets are narrow
