Vehicular ferries: Greek islands to Turkey
I need help getting from the Greek islands to Turkey's west coast in early June.
We've done lots of homework here and on the web and it appears there are only 2 vehicular ferry routes between eastern Greek islands and the Turkish coastal resorts: Chios/Hios to Cesme
, and Kos to Bodram
. The other islands of Lesvos, Samos and Rhodes may have vehicular ferries, but either we cannot find reference to them, or they are part of a route that starts on the northern Greek coast (to Lesvos) or from Crete (to Marmaris?), and we aren't travelling to/from these places.
My wife and I would like to visit Santorini/Thira, which we can easily get to from Pireas. The problem is then getting to Chios or Kos - no ferry services. So we are looking at missing Santorini and staying at another island (e.g. Paros or Naxos) that we can then hop from, to either Chios or Kos.
Does anyone have experience that can advise on how to get from Pireas to Turkey via vehicular ferries (without having to tavel via 5 islands)?
Please do tell
We leave for the UK in 17 sleeps.
