Dilemma - should we purchase an excursion from the cruise line or do our own?

by pennecrews

We are going to be in Piraeus Greece on a cruise ship later this month - arriving at 11am and departing at 8pm. We would like to hire our own taxi or find our own day trip for sightseeing vs purchasing one of the cruise ships excursions. Any recommendations ? Suggestions? Thank you,

Generally you can do much more for much less money if you do it on your own, particularly if there are 4 people in your group. We had a very nice tour of many of the sights for 90 euros from a taxi driver we found at the pier. I wouldn't take the first person who approaches you (there will probably be more like 10-15 drivers vying for your business. Of course the kind of driver you will get can be a bit of a crapshoot. You can find a lot more discussion cruise-related issues at

Walk to the metro/train station at Piraeus, buy two tickets per person and take the train to Monastiraki. From here a lot of sights are in walking distance. You can have a coffee and lunch in Plaka, and return to Piraeus by train! Maria

Eat in any restaurang along the harbour.

by Dizzyhead

It is so pitoresc to sit in the harbour and eat fresh seafood or something from the sea. Enjoy it with some good wine and look at all people who work around. Just enjoy the time. I had such a good time here even if I was alone. I felt relaxed in this place.

People watch!

Take a roam around Piraeus and see the sights - interesting buildings, architecture - and the people.

If Id had time I would have gone to a recommended museum but I arrived after closing time but still with several hours of daylight to see the locality. So I went for a walk down into Piraeus central to the marina and back around via the Carrefors supermarket - which is always a good way to see the locals - and via an internet cafe/bar.

Piraeus the greek port

by amsterdam_vallon

"About Pireaus"

Piraeus is Greece's third largest city in terms of population and its biggest port. It was first settled in the time of Themistocles, when the Long Walls were built (478 BC), the town being laid out to the plans of the architect Hippodamus. It gained considerably in importance when Athens became a naval power. The ancient harbours of Piraeus were Zea and Munichia.

Zea, now called Pasalimani, is one of the largest marinas in the Mediterranean. Munichia, also known as Mikrolimano or Tourkolimano, is a pretty little harbour with yachts and fishing-boats and ringed with fish tavernas. Above Mikrolimano is the Kastella hill, much mentioned in popular song, with its houses in the traditional style and a panoramic view. On its top is the Church of the Prophet Elijah, with the Veakeio Theatre, well known for its summer performances, nearby.

The commercial harbour of Piraeus is one of the most important in the Mediterranean. The city itself with its suburbs is an industrial zone of particular importance for the Greek economy, but its centre nevertheless has broad streets, spacious squares, tree-lined avenues, and parks.

A day was enough for us to see the all town with is attraction. We did our tour on feet since you can go everywhere you want. To only thing we forgot is our swimming suit.
