Hello,

I'm just after some opinions on what the best/budget way would be to travel from Athens - Mykonos then Mykonos - Zakynthos.

I am a backpacker, so I am looking at budget options. I can't seem to decide whether to go via ferry or air for the Athens - Mykonos.

I am totally stuck on the 2nd leg though.:)

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you!

Mykonos and Zakynthos are on opposite sides of the peninsula and not very convenient for each other. You would probably need to go back to Athens, get a bus to Kyllini, then a ferry from there. If you're short on time you would probably be better off flying.

The ferry from Athens - Mykonos will cheaper. However, you then have to decide whether you want to opt for the high speed ferry or the slow ferry. The slow is definitely cheaper and will run overnight, while the high speed will get you there in a few hours.
