My niece and I will be in Greece on March 27 , a friday, leaving April 3, the following friday. Checked out the cruises visiting Santorini and Mykonos and found most sail out of Athens on fridays (which we can't do, since we arrive on a friday) or mondays (which then get back on a friday, which we again can't do coz we depart athens on a friday). This leaves us no choice but to do our visit of the 2 islands on our own. So my question is : are there any ferry passes good for a week? I thought we can island-hop and stay in the island we fancy. And is it easy to get accommodations around end March-early April? Reply to this

march april is actually the slow season in the islands... we stayed for 15 a head in a house on the beach in mykonos... everyone had a bed too.

i went into athens and based my trip around the ferries, but i recall them sailing all the time and not just on certain days... i have a blog about the some greece travel

Hey, that's ok. We'd probably concentrate on santorini and check out the B&Bs in the area, then ferry back to Athens through Mykonos. I'd check out your blog in a while, maybe I can pick up more tips there. LOL. But really, thanks. Reply to this

Aah, Mykonos. What a terrific island. I stayed there a little over a year ago. I absolutely have to recommend a great place to stay. I've sent three friends there from the US and everyone has loved it. It's a budget-friendly place. The owner's name is Yiannis and his email is . It's called Hotel Omiros.
I'm nearly positive he remembers me, as we played guitar out on the deck overlooking the water and had a terrific time. Might be worth a mention 😊

Other than that, Santorini. It's so amazing, words can't do it justice.
Best of luck.
