Traveling around the Greek islands by ferry is an authentic and budget-friendly way of getting around, popular among students and older people. A journey from Athens to Rhodes by ferry takes approximately 17 hours, with regular ferries departing from Piraeus in the afternoon and prices starting from 50 EUR for an economy seat or 90 EUR for a cabin bed. The ferry route includes multiple stops on islands such as Kalymnos, Kos, Patmos, and Leros, and longer routes may also stop at Santorini, Crete, and Mykonos.
It is important to check the ferry route and timetable before buying tickets. Rhodes can also be reached from Turkey by ferry, with regular journeys from the town of Marmaris starting at 30 EUR per trip. These ferries typically depart early in the morning or late in the evening, allowing for a day of exploring the city before returning to the hotel.
