Local buses depart from the Airport to the city of Rhodes (Rodos) every 30 minutes. After ~35minutes the bus arrives to the terminal bus station which is located near to Mandraki port (see 14c on the map). Nearby is located the bus station KTEL (see 14b on the map). From there we chose the line RODOS-KALITHEA-FALIRAKI; a bus departs every 20 minutes. After approximately 20minutes of journey the bus will be outside the main entrance of Paradise Mare hotel. The bus stop is named Paradise Station. It is recommended to ask the bus-driver to make a stop outside the Paradise Mare hotel.

Pick up a taxi from airport to Paradise Mare Hotel at Kalithea. Taxi cabs are available just outside the airport at all times. No booking is necessary. A taxi cab can take up to four passengers. Note that between 00.00-05.00 double fare is charged.
Rhodes city  to hotel by taxi costs ~10Euro.

In addition, we are considering the possibility of running a special buss exclusively for ECLC203 participants at selected times. For this purpose we need to have your airport arrival and departure times by 15 Sept. Please email this information to eclc2013@upatras.gr using in the subject of the message “Rhodes airport arrival/departure”.

We would like to bring to your attention that, due to the scatter in the arrival times, it will not possible to run a bus from the Rhodes airport to the Paradise Mare hotel at reasonable prices and waiting times.
