Booking ferry tickets online?

Dear All,

Planning a trip to Greece at Mid June!

Hope to visit Santorini and Mykonos.

1. Do I need to book ticket online or just buy when I arrive Athens?

2. Will travel from Piraeus to Santorini / Santorini to Mykonos / Mykonos to Piraeus..... the last trip take around 7-8 hrs (check online) Why take so long?? Any fast ferry??

Thank you!

Dorothy

Hey and welcome Dorothy:-) You can certainly purchase the ferry tickets while there in Greece for mid-June;-) As far as the 7-8 hours.. that's usually the time it takes to get to/from Santorini.. not Mykonos, unless it's a slower, traditional vessel possibly making addt'l stop at Tinos en route back to Piraeus?;-) Check www.gtp.gr/ www.openseas.gr as time approaches.. which will also show the vessel type used for trip;-) Happy planning.. and enJOY!

In June you can book ferries as you go or you can buy your tickets at the airport when you first arrive from Amphitrion Holidays in the Arrivals Hall between Doors 2&3. Cash only, no CCs.

You don't have to spend 7-8 hours on a ferry. There are fast ferries from Mykonos to Rafina that take around 2 hours, and there is a bus that will take you from Rafina into Athens in around 1 hour.
