Various shipping lines operate ferries to Naxos
from Athens. The travel time is between
five hours and three and a half hours in
case you decide to travel with a catamaran.
Boats leave from two ports, the well known
Piraeus and the lesser known Rafina which is,
in fact, closer to the new airport.
Small planes fly to and from Naxos operated by
Olympic Airways. At peak times there should
be two flights a day, leaving Athens at about
9 am and 4.30 pm.
