Excursions by train

In 2012 TRAINOSE, aiming at developing railway tourism in Greece, has successfully established special excursion trains all over Greece, but mainly in the Peloponnese network. TRAINOSE creates special rail excursions using refurbished or museum rolling stock, to attract tourists from Greece and abroad.

TRAINOSE aspires to develop rapidly the railway tourism, especially within the Peloponnese network, which has a unique geographic terrain as well as a fascinating ”railroad footprint” and provides access to very important archaeological sites (Ancient Olympia, Ancient Messini, Mycenae), combining the trip by rail and our cultural heritage this way.

The TRAINOSE excursions are addressed to associations, organizations, groups etc. For more information and custom requests, you may contact the Directorate for Passenger Transportation Services at +30 213 0121407 (fax. +30 213 0121996).
