Athens to Piraeus

by TERRYEDWARD

In early May we are sailing out of Piraeus but staying for a couple of days before in Athens, can anyone advise which is the best method of travelling from Athens to Piraeus and what sort of distance are we looking at.
Thanks for your assistance
regards

You can take the metro from Athens to Piraeus, about a 19 minute journey, and then walk to the ferry port. If you look in the Athens Forum, very recently there was similar question which was replied to in depth.

From the Monastiraki Metro Station in Central Athens to the Piraeus Station is less than 20 minutes. If you are taking a ferry to the Cyclades you will be very close to that particular dock as you leave the Piraeus Station.

Yep the metro takes you from central Athens to Piraeus in about 20 minutes and there is now an escalator and footbridge over the main road to the dock gates. Different ferries go from different parts of the dock and so make sure you know which you need to be - my Pireaus page has most of the travel info needed.

Travel Tips for Piraeus

Buying Your Ferry Tickets

by johngayton

There is a block of ferry offices on Platia Karaiskaka just inside the main entrance to the docks all of which sell ferry tickets. Some only sell tickets for one particular line, whilst others claim to sell for all lines but may have a preference for a particular company. It shouldn't make any difference where you buy your tickets though as the prices are supposed to be fixed, though you may be charged a small booking fee.

What you will find about using the offices is that all the staff are really helpful with planning itinaries and suggestions. I personally used Philippis Tours, who also do air tickets, hotels and car hire, and the guy there was really good, taking about 20 minutes to help me plan my route and then double checking that we were agreed that that was what I required. Also having bought my ticket they were quite happy for me to leave my bag with them until later that evening when I was due to sail.

Petrokaravo

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The Saronic Gulf --a microcosm of the Aegean-- is sprinkled with islands, islets, and rocks, adding a unique color to the southern entrance to Athens. You'll pass through a small chain of rocks called "Petrokaravo" or "Rockboat" in English, because the rock chain resembles a small boat.
Petrokaravo is a rocky island 15 meters high. It’s both a visual navaid and a navigation hazard for boats traversing between the Poros straits and Aegina.
Petrokaravo is what's left of an islet that used to be used as shooting target for the navy in the past.

You may watch my high resolution photos of Petrokaravo on Google Earth according to the following coordinates 37º 39' 26.86" N 23º 28' 41.26" E
or on my Google Earth Panoramio Photo 1, Photo 2, Photo 3.

Piraeus - Cruise over the Saronic Gulf

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Actually, Piraeus is the western part of the Athens coastal zone.
The Saronic Gulf and its islands of Salamis (5 minutes) and Aegina (1hr) with Hydra, Poros and Spetses (5hrs) close behind are visible from the heights of the Acropolis.
Salamis, the very closest island to Athens is historically important because in ancient times, the Athenian navy, under Themistokles, defeated the Persian, under Xerxes, in the worlds first recorded naval encounter.

You may watch my 37-pics high resolution SLIDE-Show Piraeus and Saronic Gulf from my WebShot page.

One day cruise over Saronic Gulf and its three Islands: Poros, Hydra and Aegina is the best way to learn this area in short time. You may watch my
1 min 10 sec VIDEO-Clip Greece Piraeus port Cruise departure from my YouTube channel with the popular Antique "Opa-Opa" song.

4 min 06 sec VIDEO-Clip Greece Piraeus-Poros Island cruise from my YouTube channel with the popular Antique "Greek Megamix" song.

If you don't want to waste time on watching video I recommend you only listen to the music while watching and reading my tips and slide-show.
