Getting There

Blue Star Ferry  The Blue Star Ferry departs from Piraeus Port in Athens and stops in Syros, Patmos, Leros, Kos and Rhodes.  It’s about a 15-hour ferry ride.  The cost was $34.19 USD with a 50% discount for Road to Rhodes runners.  There is also a ferry from Rhodes to Marmaris, Turkey which is about one hour from Rhodes.

Aegean Airlines
Athens (El. Venizelos Airport) to Rhodes (Diagoras Airport).
The In Camera Art Boutique Hotel will arrange a taxi from the airport for $30.to 35. USD.  It was worth it after towing my suitcase from the Rhodes Ferry Terminal to the hotel.
