The train runs from near the hotel Sol up to Ali Pasha's Castle via Anthousa. There is a brief stop so those that wish to can walk to see the waterfall beneath Anthousa.

I don't know when it starts but it will probably be soon. It can't take more than say 20-30 minutes to get upto the Castle. I've never been on the train - we've walked it instead.

It's about 30mins ( did it in 09 ) to the castle via Anthousa then back, as said above with stop at Anthousa. We did it in late May, so should be starting soon. Another route the train takes is to a watermill below Anthousa. A nice, but steep walk is from Valtos up to Anthousa, have a drink then back again.

You could always go up on the train and then get off at Anthousa on the return and its not too far then to Valtos beach, quite a few did that when we last went, we walk up to Anthousa every year but if its warm the castle is just a bit too far for us not much shelter from the heat and you also need to carry water as i don't think there are any shops after Anthousa.

Sue, in answer to your question. The train takes about 2 hours to go to Ali Pasha's castle and back, and about the same amount of time if you take the alternative trip to the water mill. They run at (roughly) 3 hour intervals, from just above town beach. I saw the train just a week or so ago going to the local garage for a service, so it should be up and running by the beginning of the season.

We went on the train about 4 years ago, we bought our tickets on the way back from the beach and took the trip later just to get to Ali Pashas around sunset when the views and the setting sun are beautiful. It is well worth a couple of hours to take the trip. We are going back this year and will be doing it all over again, hope you have fun.

We did the Watermill trip two years ago and thoroughly enjoyed the leisurely ride through the beautiful olive groves , a fascinating talk at the mill and a stroll through a little village , visiting a lovely little church before returning to the seafront at Parga. Would recommend it.
