Hey all, I’ve been browsing this forum for a while now and there is a lot of good information to read here. I’ve decided that I am going to spend the the last 3 week of August this year in the Greek Islands. My plan is to get to Athens and take a ferry to Ios, where I have a room booked at the Far Out Beach Club (August 13th to be exact). After a week in Ios, I plan to hop on over to Corfu and check into The Pink Palace (can you tell I like to party?). I don’t know if there’s a direct or connecting ferry to Corfu, but that’s something I can figure out when I get there.

My question is, what is the best way to get to Athens? In a perfect world I’d probably fly into Amsterdam or something and take my time getting to Athens, seeing everything I could on the way. But seeing as I have limited time, I’d like to cut down on travel time. I’ll be flying out of Toronto, Ontario.. but I don’t know where to?

The cheapest flights I could find straight to Athens were close to $1500 taxes in. Is that as good as it gets?

Thanks in advance for any responses!

Walter.

Aaaaaand I’ve just realized I didn’t post in the Cheap Flights section. My mistake. Maybe a moderator change send this thread in the right direction?

Air transat has direct flight to athens and is often cheaper than everything else here in canada. So you should check that out.

Flying directly Toronto-Athens probably won’t be the cheapest.  Check out the weekly travelzoo deals, they often have great prices to London/Amsterdam and from there it’s just a budget flight to Athens
