Travel from Athens to Amorgos
Participants of the YPERIA Convention may have their trip from Athens organized by Aegialis Tours, a department of Aegialis Hotel & Spa.
We suggest that participants should arrive one day earlier in Athens or book a flight arriving before 14.00 so that they be at the port on time – ferries leave at 17.30.
There is one daily connection to Amorgos Island (except on Saturday during winter) from Piraeus port, Athens.
Ferries dock alternately at the two ports of Amorgos Island: Katapola and Aegiali.
The program of YPERIA is always structured in such a way that participants can arrive in Aegiali port, the one closest to the hotel.
The journey from Piraeus port to Amorgos Island lasts 8 hours and costs around 33€ (economy class, one way) and 43€ (business class) – discount available with bookings made by Aegialis Tours.
Please note: Arrival time at 02:00 am – Departure time at 06:55 am. Transfer from/to the hotel is provided by Aegialis Hotel & Spa.
