What is the best way to get from Athens to Monemvasia

Heading to Greece in the beginning of July and trying to find the best way to Monemvasia. I could have sworn there was a ferry that went there, but now it does not show on any of the ferry sites. How long is a bus ride and could we possibly stop on our way back in Sparta, on the bus and still make it back to Athens that day?

Thanks.

Hoping you're correct , but Greek Travel Pages show last year's schedule with the V.Kornaros on Fridays for this year, minus the stop at Monemvasia.

But you're much closer to latest news and gossip , so fingers crossed.

Wonderfull! This summer I'll need to leave from Athen's Airport to Archangelos on Friday.... This ferry could be the best choice!

Well, if the ferry sticks to last summer's schedule (assuming it runs at all), it will arrive in Monemvasia very late in the evening and you will need to take a taxi to Archangelos.

It seems the ferry is running again to Monemvasia this year. Ozzlem from Warsaw posted the following link to a question I posed on the forum:
