Hey and welcome 123andil:-) You won't find a boat.. but there are trains and buses.. quickest/easiest IMO is the quick approx 30 min flight.. check www.olympicair.com/ www.aegeanair.com/ Don't know when you're traveling, but you can sign up for email alerts with both for some good offers;) Happy planning.. and enJOY!

No boats to Athens..You'll have to take either the train or fly!Train takes around 5:30 hours whereas the flight is around 45 minutes!But taking into account the amount of time from/to the airport,passing through security,etc the difference won't be that much!

edit:And of course,as Litsa mentioned,there is always the bus option too!

hello!

there is one more flight company, that used to fly to Athens, you should check for astra airlines

I would suggest the bus route, though!
