Hey again:-) Yeah..just saw your other post! Nonetheless, would add Athens as a stopover either coming/going.. you'd save precious time keeping the itinerary running consecutively without backtracking;-) You can of course, certainly fly into Athens from either isle for a day or 2.. but IMO, wouldn't make sense doing all that backtracking. .not to mention the added costs;-) Keep enjoyin'!

Best way is to take the boat from Santorini ie Blue Star Line, stay a night or 2 in Athens and the return with the same ferry. You can book the hotel on the net, and ferry is no problem. BUT leave room in your travel plans in case of boat cancellation, just to be on the safe side. Ferry about 30 - 40 Euro single.
