corfu..santorini...athina...delhpi!

by mtandon

Hello,

I would like to know what would be the best way to cover the following places: Corfu->Santorini->Athina->Delphi

I will be flying into Corfu.

Hence following are my questions regarding the route:
1. How long does it take to take a ferry from Corfu to Santorini, and how much does it cost?
2. Santorini to Athina: cost and time. How far is the main sights area in athina from the dock/harbour.
3. Athina to delphi: mode of transport, time and cost?
4. Is olympia a better chice or delphi?

Also, I would like to continue my journey to Italy...so is Athina better to fly out from?

Thank you all!

Hi!
The route that you are planning to do its like a small circle.You see Corfu is on the west of Greece at Ionian sea and Santorini is on the east at Aegean sea.There is not a direct ferry to connect them.
If you take a look at Greece map you can see on your own what I mean.

If you want to reach Santorini from Corfu you must first come to Athens and travel either by boat or by plane if you do not mind the cost.

If I were you I would plan my trip like below:
Option 1. Starting point Santorini
I would fly to Santorini either with direct or indirect via Athens flight.
Then leave Santorini and travel with boat back to Athens.
From Athens with a bus (ktel) or by rending a car to Delphi or Olympia.
If you choose to visit Delphi than you have to return to Athens and either fly to Corfu or travel by Ktel to Patra or Hgoumenitsa to take a ferry to Corfu.
If you choose to visit Olympia you can take a ktel from there to Patra and catch the ferry.
Finally from Corfu there are boat lines to Venice.

Option 2
If your starting point would be Corfu.
You take a flight from there to Athens or a ferry with direction opposite than the one I describe before.
You visit Athens and Delphi or Olympia and then return to Athens to visit Santorini.
From Santorini you return back to Athens to take a flight for Italy.

Both options are indicative and depends of the time you d like to spend in Greece and the budget you are on.
You have to know that ferries between Corfu and the mainland have 1 day duration of travel.
From Athens to Santorini the duration is appr. 5-6 hours with highspeed boats.

Both Deplhi and Olympia worth to be visited.Plus they both are the same distance away from Athens, this is something that called "holly geography".

But Olympia is nearest Patra one of the two ports that connect the mainland with Corfu.

The main port of Athens is Pireas and is only 20 minutes away with train from all the main sights of the capital.

You have not done enough research or even looked at a map it would appear.

1. No way, there is no ferry Corfu to Santorini (you would have to fly via Athens - 2 flights).
2. It's roughly 8 hours by ferry Piraeus > Santorini approx 30 Euro.
3. Depends entirely by what means, cheapest will be KTEL bus.
4. Daft question, who can say which is 'best'.

The KTEL bus website is no more. Suggest you put 'KTEL' and the area you are going to, in order to get the regional KTEL bus times.

Travel Tips for Corfu Island

The Beach the Locals go to

by argentia

Avoid the mass of tourists and head to Pelekas Beach, where the locals go to relax. I believe it's on the western side of the island. There is a small hotel on the beach and a bar far to one side. It's secluded, quiet (except for faint music from the bar), and absolutely gorgeous.

The Old & New Fortress

by Andreas_Fran

Old Fortress
This was built by the Venetians upon the remains of a Byzantine castle and was completed in two stages. During the first period (1400-1500) the Venetians strengthened the Byzantine walls and dug the Contra Fossa moat, turning the promontory into an artificial island accessed by a movable bridge. In more recent times the Contra Fossa became notorious as the classic site of romantic suicides. The second period (16th-18th centuries) began with the completion of this work (1546-1588) and ended with the additions and alterations made by the British. Today two impressive bastions remain, which bear the names of the Italian engineers Martinengo and Savorgnan, as well as later British buildings and accretions, such as the church of St. George, built in 1840 as a basilica with Doric columns. Most of the churches and other buildings have however been destroyed, most important amongst them the Palace of the Venetian Proveditore.

New Fortress
Built between 1572 and 1645 by the Italian architect F. Vitelli, on the hill of St. Mark, the inner buildings of the fortress were constructed by the British. It consists of two massive twin bastions and is considered to be a marvel of fortress architecture. It should be visited not least for the magnificent view of the town and sea that it affords, preferably in the late afternoon, when the heat is less intense. Recently restored, it is often used by the municipal authorities of Corfu for exhibitions, concerts and many other cultural activities. There is a bar/cafe within the fortress, and a 'gallerie' where you may obtain various publications issued by the municipality, prints, tourist guides and maps. In the wing on the left-hand side of the first floor of the barracks there is an exhibition centre, where interesting collections of paintings, sculpture and photographs, by artists of international repute, are often displayed.

Cathedral Panagia Spiliotissa

by mindcrime

We passed from the Cathedral Panagia Spiliotissa(pic 1) many times as it is located near the old port where we parked most of the days. It was built in 1577 in baroque style over an old church (dedicated to Saint Vlasios) and it was renovated many times since then.

The cathedral houses the relic of empress Theodora in a silver reliquary.
So the cathedral is dedicated to three different figures: Saint Vlasios, Theodora and Panagia Spiliotissa(Virgin Mary of the cave) because after the destruction of the church with the same name her icon transferred here.

Inside you can admire some nice icons and paintings made by Damaskinos (16th century), Em.Tzanne(17th century) and Paramithotis(18th century). Some of the icons are really interesting like the one with Panagia Dimosiana (Virgin Mary of Dimosiana) that dates from 15th century and has a saint in the back side too!.

In front of the cathedral there is a statue of Athinagoras A’, the bishop (pic 2).
