Ferries

Ferries in Greece: to all islands, from Italy to Greece, all routes, immediatly avability.

When it comes to ferries in Greece, we must emphasize the difference between the ferries that lead from Italy to Greece and the ferries to the Greek islands. Not everyone knows, for example, that the Cyclades Islands , or those of Dodecanese both in the Aegean Sea, are not directly connected from Italy by scheduled ferries: but to reach them, it is It is almost always necessary to leave from one of the port of Piraeus in Athens or other ports of the Hellenic capital.

Italian ports with ferries to Greece

The Italian ports from which ferries leave for Greece are those of the cities on the Adriatic and Ionian Seas: therefore Ancora, Venice, Bari, Brindisi. Choosing the port of departure is especially important in terms of travel time and locations reached.

From Venice and Ancora it takes up to 24 hours of crossing to reach Greece, while from the ports of Brindisi and Bari, from where the ferry takes less than ten hours to cover the route.

Ferries departing from Italy reach the Ionian islands by Corfu , Kefalonia and Zakynthos, and the mainland Greek towns of Igoumenitsa and Patras. Seasonally, weekly connections are also activated with the island of Paxos from the port of Brinidisi.

Greek Islands Ferries

There are so many Greek islands: it is no coincidence that it is always difficult to understand which one to choose. We advise you to use our search engine "Choose your corner of Greece", in order to find the right destination according to your needs.
The islands of Greece are almost all reachable from Athens by internal ferries: so if your destination is an island that is not part of the Ionian archipelago, you will have to reach the port of Piraeus, di Lavrio or Rafina, to take the ferry that will take you to your destination.

Crete, the largest island, is also connected with Athens and other surrounding islands.

Connections from Athens to the Greek islands

The islands with the most connections are the Cyclades, even during the low season: just think of Santorini and Mykonos, which can boast tourist flows for most of the year, not only in summer. The dense network of internal ferries in Greece runs 12 months a year, with more trips in the high season, but each island has a weekly connection for good or bad.

When to buy ferries to the Greek islands

Tickets are sold five or six months in advance: this depends on the routes, the well-known destination, and the type of ferry: hydrofoil or slow ferry.
The costs also vary from the request and the type of boat. In high season they are obviously higher, and hydrofoils have an increasingly higher cost than slow ferries, which are also fewer in number compared to the races.
