There are two main ways to travel to Limni from Athens, either through Chalkida and on the scenic road that passes over the mountains. You can stop during the drive at one of many charming local tavernas for a bite to eat. However, for those that may be prone to altitude and motion sickness or not as comfortable on winding roads, there is a very easy drive on the freeway north to Arkitsa. Then there is a ferry that takes passengers and vehicles to Edipsos (Also spelled Aidipsos and Aedipsos). The main difference to consider between the two is that you will need to add about 25 euro extra in ferry tickets and half an hour additional travel time with the ferry. Both ways are enjoyable and have different merits to offer, however for families travelling to the island or less confident drivers, we recommend the freeway and ferry option.
