Piso Aetos, on Ithaki’s west coast, has no settlement; taxis often meet boats, as does the municipal bus in high season only. The island’s one bus runs twice daily (weekdays only, more often in high season) between Kioni and Vathy via Stavros and Frikes (€3.50), and its limited schedule is not well suited to day-trippers. Taxis are relatively expensive (about €25 for the Vathy–Frikes trip), so your best bet is to hire a moped or car (or a motorboat) to get around. In Vathy, Rent a Scooter (26740 32840) is down the laneway opposite the port authority. For cars, try Happy Cars – contact Polyctor Tours or Alpha Bike & Car Hire (26740 33243) behind Alpha Bank.
