    do any ferries run from Greece to southern Italy?
    you could go full magna graecia

    are you thinking of travelling back home on train with bike?

    You can take a ferry to Corfu, and then from there to Bari. I've spent a good amount of time on Corfu, but never took the ferry over to Italy.

    One of my personal favorites among the islands around Greece. It has a special place in my heart for its significance in The Odyssey.

    On a previous "odyssey " again hiring scooters
    not taking a motorbike with me , I went from
    Rhodes, Greece and ended up in Pompei, Italy.
    This all buy Ferry bar the Athens to Corfu
    segment.

    Corfu is wonderful especially the north east
    area. I checked that out on my usual scout machine
    a 125 scooter.

    I went from Corfu to Bari, Italy overnight on the ferry and a bus
    from Bari to Naples (few hours) and a train
    to Pompei (an hourish).
    The greek ferries are fantastic and you can
    get around all te islands.

    It all was amazing but I say it would be
    simply magnificent with ones beloved partner
    in travels ..... Ones GS !

    If the pandemic has as i assume killed my career
    I'll try and get to athens on the bike in april.
    After that it is easy to get to any island.

    p.s another Herman Melville quote :

    As for me, I am tormented with an everlasting itch
    for things remote. I love to sail forbidden seas,
    and land on barbarous coasts.

    Moby Dick is a favorite of mine, and that excerpt also channels the character of Homer's Odysseus well indeed.
