Ferries to Chania There is a frequent ferry connection between Athens and Chania all year round. Ferries depart from Piraeus port in Athens for the port of Chania almost every day. During summer, both day and overnight routes are carried out. However, there is no ferry connection between the port of Chania and other islands. You can reach Kithyra, Antikithyra and Gythio only from Kissamos port, which is about an hour away from Chania, and Gavdos island from the small port of Paleochora. These routes are carried out about 3 times per week. > View ferry connections to Chania or Book online your ferry tickets to Chania!
