How to travel to the Dodecanese


The Greek islands of Dodecanese receive regular ferries from the port of Piraeus. But due to the long distance between Piraeus to the Dodecanese, the trips are long. Alternatively, there are also daily ferries between Rhodes, Kos and all the islands of Dodecanese. Karpathos and Kasos, which are located on the southern side of Dodecanese in Greece, are also connected by ferry to Agios Nikolaos and Sitia in Crete, during summer.

From two islands of the Dodecanese, there are also ferries to Turkey in summer. Ferries from Kos Town go to Bodrum Turkey, while ferries from Rhodes Town go to Marmaris Turkey. Both these ferries carry passengers and cars.
