I'm trying to figure out what to do regarding ferry vs. flying from Santorini to Athens. The ferry will take about 8 hours, and will arrive into Athens around 11:15 pm. The faster ferry, for more money, got in at 11:55 pm. I'm not excited about getting in so late (even the 11:15) because we have a 1/2 day tour of Athens the next day with a 7:30 am pickup. I'm hesitant to arrive so late (and that's just to the port, not the hotel), especially with a chance that the ferry could be even later. I don't want to be wiped out for the tour the next day.
The flight would cost an additional Euro106 per person. However, the weight allowance on our baggage is less than the 50 lbs. we are allowed on the international flight. I can't remember what the exact allowance is, but I think it was 44 pounds. This could get very pricey, between paying for the flight, and the excess baggage fees.
Just wondering what everyone's thoughts were on this.
