Ferry from Rhodes to Athens

Hello -

I need to get from Rhodes to Athens in order to catch a flight to Istanbul. There are plenty of flights, but I thought an overnight ferry would be fun (assuming I can get a single, private cabin).

I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this, i.e. how long is the trip? Is it difficult/expensive to get from the port of Athens to the airport? How long would the port-airport trip take?

Even better would be a ferry trip from Rhodes directly to Istanbul, but I can only find them to Bodrum, and that looks like a short trip. Any suggestions? Thanks so much!

Hey again:-) You can certainly get a cabin all to yourself..check out www.greekferries.gr/ www.openseas.gr/ for ferry schedules which will state departure/arrival times! There is a dedicated bus running the route from Piraues to the Airport..it's the X96 and depending on traffic can take anywhere from an hour..75 min..upwards;-) I agree a flight would certainly be convenient since your goal is the airport anyway;-) Happy planning..and EnjOY!
