Public bus from Patmos to Patmos (city)
Just in front of the docking are in Patmos is a bus stop for the local bus between Skala and Chora. The bus normally runs every hour, but on cruise days it seems to run more frequent and irregular. The good thing is you only pay € 1,5 per person one-way. The trip takes about 15 minutes.
TIP: A good option is to go up by public bus and come back on foot. From the Monastery of St. Johan in Chora there’s a paved walking path down to the Holy Cave of the Apocalypse which is about halfway down. It’s also possible to catch the public bus there for the last part down.
