Getting there & away
Ferries to Corfu Town run hourly between 5am and 10pm €6, 1¾ hours. Ferries also go to Lefkimmi in southern Corfu €4.50, one hour, six daily and Paxi €7, 1¾ hours, three weekly. Agency booths opposite the quay sell tickets, and you can also call an English-speaking operator with questions about Igoumenitsa–Corfu ferries (26650 99460).
Hydrofoils to/from Corfu and Paxi usually run in summer; check locally.
Return tickets are 30% cheaper than two one-way tickets.
For ferries to Italy, you can usually just show up in Igoumenitsa and buy an onward passenger ticket, though you’ll want to book ahead for car tickets. Baseline vehicle sample fares include Bari (€40), Brindisi (€45) and Ancona/Venice (€136).
Boats generally leave mornings and evenings. Be at the port two hours before departure, and check in at the shipping agent’s office for your boarding pass. On-board ‘camping’ is allowable on certain services for those with campervans.
Book tickets at portside agencies or through the ferry companies’ offices/websites.
