Getting there & away
Until about mid-2009, four times a week in summer, twice a week in winter, Blue Star car ferries run a service from Piraeus via Naxos and the Little Cyclades to Amorgos (€27.50, 9¼ hours). Arrival is in the early hours. Blue Star continues from Amorgos to Astypalea (€15.50, 1½ hours) and Kos (€22.50, 3¼ hours). One Blue Star ferry runs on Sunday from Amorgos to Rhodes (€25.50, 6½ hours).
Most ferries stop at both Katapola and Aegiali, but well before your date of leaving be sure to check which town is the departure port for that day.
In July and August Hellenic Seaways runs a fast catamaran six days a week, except Wednesday, from Piraeus to Amorgos (€53, five hours) and on from Amorgos to Santorini (€18.50, 1¼ hours), Folegandros (€25, 2¼ hours), Sifnos (€32, three hours) and Syros (€28.50, 2½ hours).
