Ferries to Athens from Mykonos Ferry Port.

The main Mykonos ferry port (also called Tourlos or the New Ferry Port) is 2 km north of Mykonos Town. The port is well served by bus and taxi which stop directly in front of the ferries. Tickets to Athens can be purchased at the port but I recommend buying ferry tickets in advance.

Ferries from Mykonbos to Athens (Piraeus)

The Piraeus Ferry Port (30 minutes by metro or taxi from central Athens) is a 2.5 to 4-hour ferry ride from Mykonos by the fastest highspeed ferries and catamarans, and 5 to 6 hours by the slower car ferries. Most ferries from Mykonos to Piraeus also stop in Tinos or Syros en route. In high season (May to October) there will be 3 to 5 ferries per day to Athens. In low season there will always be at least one ferry per day. Typically, ferries go from Athens to Mykonos in the morning and depart from Mykonos to Athens in the afternoon.

How to buy ferry tickets:
• Best seats: I recommend Business or VIP if available (nicer seats in a more relaxed setting)
• When to book tickets: 2 to 3 months in advance (any sooner and some ferry routes might not be released yet, any later and some ferries could be sold out)
