Hey everyone, I'm leaving for Europe in 4 days and am trying to figure out the best way to get to Greece from Italy. I have a eurorail pass for the month but the ferries to Greece which are included on it stop running in September (so I've read). So whats my best bet in getting there???

I think that they run on Wednesdays and Thursdays in October (maybe all winter?)

Look here.

Good luck!

The ferry from Corfu (stopped on the mainland too) to Venice took 24 hours and was cheap and a good way to catch up on some much needed rest time... If you do decide to go on the Ferry BRING A BLANKET or a sleeping bag... it gets sooooo cold on the deck. I did the trip in the beginning of september... so I can guarentee it'll be colder when you're there.
