    We made all connections in Greece by plane, except from Santorini to Mikonos. It was a very boring experience, wasting nine hours of our precious time in the sea, in a very basic boat, only with a short stop at Patmos to brake the tedium. Yachts around the islands may be one thing! A ferry is another...

    Probably the second best option to reach the Airport (after an Airport Express Bus), provided you are lingering around the Larisis train station. The Metro looks like a "quicker" option, but it is not cheaper and you will be prone to switching trains. Not a big deal if you have no luggage. Fare: 6 euros one-way and 10 euros round-trip. No...
