ferry tickets: Sifnos to Paros

Need the wisdom of Sifnos lovers. We are arriving in Sifnos Sept. 6. Need to take the Sept.12 ferry to Paros. Should we buy those tickets in Athens airport on Sunday, Sept. 5 when we arrive in Greece or can we wait until we arrive on Sifnos Monday morning? I understand weekend ferries back to Athens can be crowded in Sept. and we need to get to Paros for a flight out to Athens after a 5 day visit in Naoussa. Many thanks for any advice.

The ferry to Paros from Sifnos is a large car ferry so you can buy your tickets in Kamares when you arrive on the Monday morning. It will save you the small booking charge that you will incur at the airport.

I'm not sure where are staying but if you don't buy in Kamares you can always purchase tickets at one of the agencies in Appolonia.

Have a great trip; we love both islands.

It is not necessary to buy tickets before you get to Sifnos. That ferry terminates in Syros anyway not Piraeus. Simple just to buy your ticket on arrival in Kamares.

Many thanks to both of you. We've been coming to Paros since the 80's and this time around we are looking forward to discovering the charms of Sifnos.
