Corinth/Isthmus to Parga

I'm planing to go: Athens - Mycenae - Corinth - Parga in October I am trying to make the best Itinerary.
I found bus from Athens to Mycenae (with cab from Fichi) and backward to Isthmus, (I would like to see the canal) but can't figure out how to get from Isthmus-Corinth to Parga. Someone has any suggestion?
Thank you Zsuzsa

There are three buses a day from Athens to Parga via Corinth and Preveza. They leave Athens at 7.30, 13.30 and 20.00 and you should be able to pick one up from Corinth about an hour later. I don't know the exact time. From Athens the fare is 40 euros.

Do you know that there is a train direct from the airport to Corinth? Depending on your plans, and the timing of your flight, that might be easier than going into Athens and getting a bus.

It would be a shame to go into this area without visiting Nafplio, one of the most beautiful towns in Greece. Have you considered going Athens, Nafplio, Mycenae, Corinth, Parga?

Have a look at our write up of Nafplio to tempt you!

Have a good trip.

I have to agree with Alan, Nafplio is absolutely beautiful and charming! We used it as a home base to see Epidauros and Mycenae(although a strike prevented us from going there). We were able to get a great deal on a taxi from Athens to Nafplio with a stop at Corinth along the way as our taxi driver just desperately wanted to get out of the city for the day! Definitely worth considering a stay in Nafplio if time allows, I couldn't imagine a trip to Greece without it! Just my opinion! :)
