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.
I will not say that your mulberry-trees are dead, but I am afraid they are not alive.
