    The Heraklion - Santorini - Mykonos ferry connection is operated mostly by high speed ferries, but there are also some conventional ferries serving the route. Book tickets about a month in advance just to be safe but there are many daily ferries and they rarely sell out. Note that a scheduling change may be due to a routing change, making your trip longer — or shorter — than expected. Most of the ferries that were operated by Hellenic Seaways are now running under Blue Star Ferries, and routes will generally not be affected. Because it is such a large area, there are a variety of ferry companies serving different parts of the islands, and the prices and schedule can vary dramatically, particularly if you are looking to travel outside the main tourist season.

    Switch trains at the Monastiraki station to the M1 line which will take you straight to the ferry port. Thanks so much for your help. In the summer there are at least ferries per day serving this route. If you have lots of questions to ask before you charter a boat then Charterayachtingreece. Of those 2, what has more to do where an extra day would be beneficial?

    It is also quite common for ferries from Athens to Crete to travel overnight. We are a family of four in need of island transfer from Crete, preferably Chania but at this point any port will do, to Paros on May 2nd. We want to visit islands for about 7 days. Due to their special geographical location, they were largely influenced by many civilizations of the Mediterranean Sea and developed unique cultures of their own. Lemnos Although Lemnos is a secluded place, accessible by plane or ferry from Lavrion port or Kavala, it can easily be included among the best Greek islands with famous ancient sites.
