At the end of the day, it's just a little road train and inexpensive way of getting around. Having said that, I couldn't help feeling it was a bit boring and tacky, especially as Molyvos has managed to maintain a very authentic, traditional Greek feel....More

Fun way to get from Petra to Molyvos and easier to get up to the castle than walking! Timetable varies through the season.

When it's hot and you can walk no more this train is a saving grace. Our 10 and 6 year old boys loved it. Such a great option to take to see the streets.
