Avoid the modern day intercity for a romantic night ride on train 504.
It departs Athens central station at 22.50 arriving at Thessaloniki at 5.30 just in time for morning coffee and fresh bougatsa (cream pie).
Early booking can secure one, two, three or four bed compartments but the real thing are the six bed compartments in older cars.
True old fashioned experience on one of Europe's oldest trains with the bonus of the lovely city of Thessaloniki at the end of the journey.
