Train from Athens to Budapest

Jump to last reply

We’re thinking about taking the train from Athens to Budapest. We’re aware that the journey will take 26-28 hours, but, is the journey and scenery worthy of note? Does the train pass through beautiful landscapes and lovely small towns? Will it make stops of some length anyplace? Should we consider stopping at a town and spending the night midway?

The one issue that may cause concern is that this trip will take place between the dates of Dec 24-26, so we have to figure Christmas into the schedule. Will train schedules remain the same?

We’re aware that most would like to get to their destination as soon as possible, but sometime the journey can be equally exciting.

Anyone have any comments on this idea?
