The ferry company Blue Star, member of Attica Group, is starting a new itinerary that will connect Piraeus directly to the remote island of Kastelorizo, off Rhodes, close to the Turkish coasts. Note that Kastelorizo, apart from a picturesque and calm island, is the easternest part of Greece. This itinerary will be held once a week and will contribute in a higher quality of life and transportations for the permanent inhabitants and visitors of this small island. F/B Diagoras will perform this itinerary and will make stops in many in-between islands of the Aegean.
In particular, from 03/03/09 to 31/05/09 and from 01/10/09 to 31/10/09, the itinerary goes as following:
