    What’s the best way to get between Athens, Mykonos and Santorini?
    It sounds like the ferry takes a while, but is it relaxing? Or would a flight be more convenient?
    Thanks in advance

      We’ve taken both ferries and flights to the Greek islands and for us it just came down to the classic trade off between time versus costs. Flights being more convenient, but ferries being less expensive.
