Getting out of Greece to Sofia

I am commencing my Eurail trip from Athens around 5th August. I cannot seem to find concrete information on how to get from Athens to Sofia (Bulgaria). 

Some places say there’s trains. Others say I train to Thessaloniki then bus to Sofia. Others say I train to Thessaloniki, bus to the border, taxi over the border, then bus to Sofia. But when I drill down into these ‘trips’ they can’t provide any concrete information past Thessaloniki.

If I have to split with train then bus, will the bus be covered on Eurail? 

I don't want to resort to flying!

Please help!

There are no trains across the Greek borders. Your best bet is a train to Thessaloniki and then a bus to Sofia. The bus is not covered by Eurail. Check the Greek timetables on
