The Greek Islands

Travel Greece - including Crete in your Greek Island holiday is easy as there are flights and ferries between Chania port and airport and Heraklion port and airport.

From Athens, you could choose to fly to Crete to avoid a 9 hour ferry journey, as the flight is only 1 hour. See more information about getting to Crete here...

Explore Crete with plenty of time, see our handy ebook guides to the back roads of the west and east, or combine the two into at least a 10 day journey through Crete.

One of the most common ways to start island-hopping is to take the fast ferry from Heraklion in Crete to Santorini - a journey of only 2 hours.

From Santorini you can take ferries to many of the Cycladic islands, such as Mykonos or Syros, then return to Athens via Pireaus Port or Rafina Port. Using Rafina Port is more relaxing, if you do not want to go through downtown Athens, and you could stay close to Rafina or at the airport hotel, prior to taking a long flight back home.

Syros - a lesser known
Cycladic Island

Ermoupolis is the capital of Syros island in the Cyclades

Greek holiday makers and those familiar with the Cyclades already know about Syros, but international visitors have not yet discovered her beauties, which makes the visit even more special.

The capital, Ermoupolis, (pictured above) was once the capital of Greece, and retains the spendour of a wealthy and prosperous past, with exquisite neoclassical architecture and marble streets.

Take a ferry from Mykonos to Syros in less than a day, and then return to Athens Airport via Rafina Port, making your Crete to Cycladic island-hopping smooth and easy.

Santorini

Santorini architecture and view over the calderaSantorini's famous architecture and view over the caldera - this is Mystique Hotel in Oia

Santorini is famous for many reasons, and deservedly so. The views from height at the edge of the caldera are magnificent. The atmosphere is indescribable, the light is the stuff of poetry, and the bright white symmetry of the architecture stunning.

As Santorini is so accessible from Crete, we suggest it can be easily included in your Greek island-hopping plans. Just be aware that it gets really, really crowded in summer. There are two ways to deal with this, book waaay ahead, or travel in spring. May and June are perfect months to travel Greece. Sparkling blue seas, more space, time to relax.
