Fiskardo to Bari or Brindesi, Italy in June, 2012-What ferry

We are flying into Cephalonia in June, 2012 for a week and need to be in Bari or Brindesi, Italy on the morning of Saturday, June 16th. What ferry(s) do we need to take and when. Do we take the ferry from Fiskardo or from Sami, and to where to catch the international ferry? Thank you for the help, this will be our first trip to Greece.

Hi,

You definately have to go from Sami port on Kefalonia.

The trouble is that the Sami stop is a high season only, probably starting in July (Endeavour Lines, Ventouris).

If not, as would seem very likely then take the ferry Sami to Patras which is the all year mainland ferry (08:30, 17:00). Thence of course from Patras to one of the Italian ports.

Another way is to go roughly on this 'ferry and several buses' route i.e. Fiskardo > Vasiliki > Lefkada > Preveza > Igoumenitsa/Corfu and thence a ferry to one of the Italian ports.

Thank you RH for your speedy answer. You of course are correct, the International ferries don't start until after the first of July, which is of no help to us. Are there flights from Cephalonia Airport to Brindesi or Bari without having to go through Athens? Thank you for all your help.

Hi,

The international ferries/Greek mainland ferries are not a problem, they are all year, it's just the Sami stop on Kefalonia that is seasonal.

I don't know much about flights to Italy. Easyjet - Kefalonia to Milan, Ryanair - Kefalonia to Milan, Pisa.

Thanks RH, looks like we will take the ferry from Sami to Ithaca and then to Patras and hence to Brindesi overnight. Thanks for the help.
