Will be traveling to Athens to meet a cruiseship this December so long as Covid allows, though i do not want to fly, so i looked in to alternative means of getting there and i could get a train to Italy and then a ferry from Ancona to Greece and then a bus to Athens. However this still means a good three days travel and quite a few changes along the way.
Does anyone know another way to get to Athens? I know there is a train goes from Paris to Moscow once per week, is there anything like this that goes to Athens? What is the closest i could get to Athens by one train from Paris? And how many trains from there?
It is a pity that the ferry from Marseille appears to have stopped going to Greece, as that would have been much easier from London, than Ancona.
