Getting to Sougia
Sougia is located at the end of a long valley
in the south-west of Crete (see map),
about 75 km from the city of Hania. This scenic road goes up
to the pass of Agia Irini and back down to sea level and is therefore
quite a winding road. It takes just under two hours to cover
that distance by car.
Public transport to Sougia is very limited: there are
only one or two (depending on the time of the year) buses a day
from and to Chania. The journey takes about two hours. You can see the exact (and hopefully
up-to-date) timetable and prices on the KTEL
Taxi is a frequent option for those wh come to Sougia.
