Spetses is an island located in the heart of the Saronic Gulf, close to Athens, Greece. The closest airport is the Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos. From the airport, there are two main ways to get to Spetses: by car (mostly) and by boat. Before we give more details about them, participants should know that we intend to book a bus leaving the airport on Sunday evening (around 17:00) and a bus leaving for the airport on Friday morning (arriving at the airport around 14:00), in order to facilitate your transfer to and from the conference venue. If you plan to travel independently, here are the two options:
By car + 5 minute boat ride: you should take the national road towards Corinth, cross the Corinth Canal and take the exit for Ancient Epidavros. Drive to Kranidi, Porto Heli and Kosta. The drive takes about 2 hours and 30 minutes. From Kosta, a sea taxi will take you to Spetses in 5 minutes.
By boat: From the port of Piraeus, GATE E9, there are frequent Flying Dolphin and Catamaran departures to the port of Spetses. To get to Piraeus from the airport, you can catch the X96 bus leaving from the airport every 20 minutes, 24 hours a day for the port of Piraeus. This takes about one hour to reach Piraeus and will drop you off at the bus station in the port, about 500m from Gate E9 where the flying dolphins for Spetses depart. During the day you can also take the suburban railway leaving from the Athens Airport to the port of Piraeus. This takes 1h 40 m total and the station is about 700m from Gate E9 where the flying dolphins for Spetses depart.
