Tinos is an island in Cyclades.

Get in[edit]

From the Greek mainland ferries and highspeed catamaran services run daily from Piraeus, Rafina and Lavrio.

Many travelers probably don’t even consider Rafina a possible departure port if they are heading to one of the Cyclades, but if you are arriving at the airport of Athens you are often better off taking a ferry from Rafina to Tinos than traveling to Athens and getting a ferry from Piraeus.
