Where to stay and most convenient route from Piraeus to Patras?

by reese096


My boyfriend and I will be arriving in Piraeus from Santorini at 11:25pm (23:25) and need to get to Patras for a ferry to Bari the day at 6pm (18:00). Should we stay in Piraeus then make our way to Patras the next day? Or somewhere else? Where can someone recommend we stay economically? And, what is the most convenient route to get to Patras?

Thank you so very much for your assistance,

It makes the most sense for you to stay in Piraeus for the night, especially if your ferry from Patras to Italy offers a shuttle bus from the ferry port as do Blue Star Ferries, Anek Lines and Superfast Ferries.

There are several small budget hotels near the port. These include the Acropole, Ideal, Triton, Anita and Poseidonio Hotel

Buses go from Athens to Patras all through the day.

The service is frequent and cheap. It's is run by the Greek National Intercity Bus Company (KTEL). Buses run every half an hour or even shorter from 0600 to 2300. The trip lasts about 2,5 hours (Express bus service) or 3 hours (regular bus service, with stops in the way). The fare is around 15 Euros. No advanced booking is required.

Departures are from KTEL Terminal A in Athens go from the Pelopponese station Address:100 Kifissou St, 10442 Athens
Directions: The Bus Terminal A is south-west of central Athens – take the subway to “Sepolia” then change to bus #420 or take a bus #051 from Menandrou Street, near Omonia Square.

Give yourself plenty of time to make the ferry departure (at least 5 hours).

Travel Tips for Piraeus

Piraeus General Background

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Piraeus is a city in the periphery of Attica and a suburb located 9 km to the south-west of the center of Athens. Actually, Piraeus is the western part of the Athens coastal zone.
It belongs to the Athens urban area. It was the port of the ancient city of Athens and was chosen to serve as the modern port when the city re-emerged.

Piraeus is one of the largest ports in the Mediterranean Sea in terms of passenger transportation, servicing more than 20 million passengers annually. The Piraeus station is the terminus of Line 1 (the "green line"), the electric train service now incorporated into the Athens Metro.

The Archeological Museum of Piraeus, along with the Maritime Museum, reveal the glorious history the city. In Piraeus there are many historical monasteries and churches you can visit.

Today the life of Piraeus is centered on its three ports. You can walk around the central harbour, shared by cargo and passenger ships alike, and watch the constant comings and goings of goods and people from around the world.

Thyra 7 (Gate 7) is forever etched in history as the worst tragedy in Olympiakos history and will never be forgotten.

On 2 February, 1981, Olympiakos played AEK and crushed them 6-0. Fans wanted to spill out of the old Karaiskaki onto the streets to celebrate this huge victory, but at Gate 7, someone forgot to unlock the gate. A man rushing to get out fell, and this caused a chain reaction of others falling. 21 people were crushed to death.

21 seats with the victims names are dedicated in the new Karaiskaki and will remain forever empty.

"My Trips to Piraeus"

Piraeus is the largest port in Greece and in the Mediterranean. There are 3 harbours - Kentriko Limani, Pasalimani, and Mikrolimano.

I never spent much time in Piraeus, only walking around for a few hours while waiting for ferries to leave, but there are things I would like to see when I return to Greece.

The picture above is the only picture I have of Piraeus, when my ferry was well out of the harbour.


Piraeus began as a port in 480 BC when Themistokles moved the Athenian fleet from Faliro to Piraeus. Over the years, the port declined to become a small fishing village and when Greece became independent, only 20 people lived there. By the beginning of the 20th century, it was once again the most important port in Greece.

In the 1920s, population swelled when 100,000 Greek refugees from Turkey arrived. This had a huge influence on the culture of Greece with the rise of rebetiko music.
