Ferries to Turkey
Unfortunately, there are no direct ferry route connections from Italy (or another destination of the Mediterranean Sea) to Turkey. In order to reach by ferry one of Turkey's ports from Italy you have to travel from Ancona, Venice, Bari or Brindisi to the Greek mainland (e.g. Patras or Igoumenitsa) drive on your own with a vehicle or take the public bus line (KTEL) to Piraeus in Athens, the biggest ferry port in Greece, reach from there one of the below mentioned Greek islands on the eastern Mediterranean Sea and then travel further to one of the many ports of the western Turkish coastline, such as Bodrum, Cesme, Datca, Fethiye, Kusadasi, Marmaris.
There are many ferries to Turkey that depart daily (in the summer months the departures are even more every day) from the Greek islands of the eastern Aegean Sea, such as Kos, Rhodes, Chios and its second port Mesta Chios, Symi and all 3 ports of Samos, Pythagorio, Karlovasi and Vathi.
Please visit the resp. route pages of our website in order to learn if it’s possible this year to reach by ferry Turkey from the above mentioned Greek destinations. Or use our booking engine to see which ferry route to Turkey is available this period of time.
Another way, though, to reach Turkey when you are travelling outside from Greece is by plane. The Turkish airport in Dalaman, a fine coastal holiday destination, is relative closely situated to the ports of Bodrum, Fethiye and Datca.
