The nearest major town on the mainland is Volos, halfway between Athens and Thessaloniki, which is about three hours away by ferry or one and a half hours by hydrofoil. Athens is approximately four hours away by hydrofoil & bus, or six hours if you have your own car and take the ferry. Hydrofoils and ferries go to Aghios Konstantinos, on the mainland, half way between Athens and Volos. There are also good connections from Thessaloniki in the summer months.
