Travel from Sicily to Greek islands

Hi All,

Are there any means of travel from Sicily to the Greek Islands. We haven't decided which of the Greek islands to visit yet, but just very importantly need to know how to get from Sicily to the islands.

Thanks !

I dont know for sure, but I think its likely you would need to fly Palermo (or the airport in the east of Sicily) to Athens and then route to the islands...

If you go to the Catania and Palermo airport websites (google them), you'll see there are no flights from Sicily to Greece.

You might find a few flights from Rome to the Greek islands, but it's much more likely you'll have to change at both Rome and Athens (very few Sicilians go on holiday to Greek islands, and there's no economic links). Probably cheapest (and possibly quicker), though, to use a low cost airline website and fly via a German or London area airport.

Alternatively, fly from Sicily to Bari or Ancona, from where there are intermittent overnight ferries to some islands, especially Corfu.
