A new ferry line is expected to start in December to connect Piraeus with Santorini, Kos and Rhodes. This ferry line, launched by Blue Star Ferries, has been a long demand of the islanders and thousands of visitors, as it connects three of the most popular Greek tourist destinations to each other.
The first vessel of this line leaves the port of Piraeus on December 18th at 19:00 p.m. This itinerary is expected to be performed three times a week (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday), departure time 19:00 p.m. from Piraeus, while in summer there will also be another itinerary on Saturday, departure time 09:00 a.m. from Piraeus. It is worth to say that the travel time from Piraeus to Santorini will be only 5 hours, instead of 7, as the trip will be direct, without any stops to intermediate islands.
