Greece train/buss prices

I'm coming to Greece in a few weeks and I'm trying to budget for the travel between the places I'm going. I'm up for using busses, trains, taxis... Can anyone help with the prices for the following?

Santorini airport to Oia and back?
Day trip from Athens to Sounion?
Athens to Delphi?
Delphi to Meteora?
Meteora to Thessaloniki?


Any help would be greatly appreciated!! THANKS!

Sorry, that's the taxi price. For the bus you have to take one bus into Fira and then another one to Oia. It will cost a total of 3.4 euro each way per person.

The airport bus is the one between Monolithos and Fira.

check out the bus schedules on Matt Barretts excellent site
Terminal A (Thessaloniki)
http://www.athensguide.com/practical...schedulesA.htm
Terminal B - (Delphi - very inexpensive on the public bus, very clean, many time choices and only 3.5 hours. From Delphi you can go on to other destinations like Meteora, via either Larissa or Lamia...)

You can contact Alkyon Travel in Athens for info re: buses from Delphi onwards...

Please, please, please - it is buses. With 2 s's in the middle, it is a type of kiss and might lead to difficulties in Greece.

If you check the Oxford English Dictionary you'll see that either spelling is correct and acceptable.

IF you're from the USA, the word "return" is usage in the rest of the world for what we call "round-trip".
