Can anyone advise if there any ferries running from Ios to Athens on 15 September 2008.
Every site I have checked has no ferries running??
Have you check this one??
maybe it is really early...but try this too
I've also got the same question, the website above doesn't return any results. All I really need to know at this stage is if here is a ferry from Ios to Athens and if so, how often it departs and how long does it take?
Many thanks! :)
There were no direct ferries from Ios to Athens on the day we required it. I think in the height of Summer there are daily ferries but the timetable changes around beginning/middle of September.
I would not depend on the timetables listed on websites as they are subject to change.
We spend three weeks in September last year island hopping and always managed to get a ferry.
from may until end of october there are ferries everyday ios to pireaus (athens port)
they normally give the new schedule may
but have informed me they are going to release sched early this year as ive been bugging them lol,
the highspeed runs every day which takes 3 and 1/2 hours ,
blue star ferry take approx 6 1/2 hours
some slow ferrys take 8 hours
the slower ferry romilda can take 12 hours approx ok as it stops at alot of islands on the way ,
but you can get a cabin for the night as it normally leaves pireaus around 7pm and arrives ios around 5.30am saves on accomadation too if backpacking
other options are flights
gatwick to santorini easyjet !
or athens to santorini flight (u dont have to leave airport then)
or athens to naxos flight
olympicairlines and aegeanairlines
flights save time transfers and what you would spend on food and drinks on boat and buses n taxis to ports
hope this helps
look forward to meeting you in ios this summer
