Self Guide Athens???

by missnikita

We are arriving into Piraeus via cruise ship and have just 10.5hrs there. Any tips on how to self guide, including getting from NCL Terminal to Athens etc., would be so greatly appreciated. Thanks, Nikita

Probably by taxi will be best- head for Plaka area, where Acropolis and most other attractions are. The Fleamarkets are worth a look, and nearby.
But just walking around Plaka will give you a good and quick idea of Athens - a wonderful city for walking.

Alternatively, you could just take the Metro from Piraeus into central Athens (Monastariki would be the easiest station to get off, as then you would not need to change lines). Journey takes 17 minutes.

With that amount of time you can walk from Monastiriki via the Ancient Agora up to the Acropolis & Parthenon (see it from afar or actually visit), then to the New Acropolis Museum (or explore the Plaka district) then back via the Roman Agora and Hadrian's Library etc (again, see from outside or visit) to the 'fleamarket' area near the Monastiriki station.

Allow plenty of time for your return journey. Ships don't wait. Stay alert about your valuables during your time in Athens (just as you would in any city anywhere): keep them safely under your clothing.

Take the metro as Lynne advised. he station is a minute walk from the Plaka. I would recommend you walk up to the Parliament area, approx 10 minutes, it is a beautiful area and you will see the Changing of the Guards, Parliament.

I would take the metro from Pireaus and return the same way. You may have to get a taxi from the Terminal to the metro station. Big advantage about the metro is that you wouldn't get stuck in traffic jams!! Don't forget to validate your metro ticket in the small box either on the platform or the station concourse - just watch to see what other people do.

Travel Tips for Piraeus

Cruise over Saronic Gulf and its Islands

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

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.
This is the one cruise you have to take folks! Especially if you like me are short on time. Its a great way to see three Greek islands in one day and in particular, three less visited Saronic Gulf islands where real Greeks spend more time than foreigners.

As Islands, they are generally more family oriented. You'll see fewer tattoos and more of traditional Greece, not to mention the outstanding ancient temple of Aphaia on Aegina and Hydra's vehicle free port with donkeys and mules as the main means of transportation! Not that you'll need them though! You can see the port sights on foot and right near the dock too.
Poros wont let you down either and you can see the Peloponnese a few meters away as well.

Early morning transfer to the port for embarkation. Cruise to Aegina, Poros, Hydra with a short stop on each island, giving you the chance to explore the ports. Lunch on board. Return in the evening.

Airport Express

by amsterdam_vallon

Bus and trolley tickets can be purchased at special booths and kiosks near the bus stops. Once you are on the bus or trolley, validate your ticket by asserting it into one of the meters for that purpose; the ticket will be punched and dated. Then keep the ticket until you leave the bus, since it's not uncommon to have a ticket-checker to check their validity (if you are found that you haven't punched your tickets, you're required to pay around 15 - 25 Euro.

The bus number is : ?96 PIRAEUS - AIRPORT (EXPRESS)

Piraeus Port and City

by johngayton

Pireaus is best known as the port of Athens but is in fact a separate city, being the 3rd largest in Greece with a population of approximately 175,000. For most visitors all they ever see of the city is the port itself or perhaps the short walk from the Metro station across the road to the dock gates but it is worth spending some time here - even if just to visit one of the excellent fish restaurants or just have a general walk around - I personally managed to combine both in the same evening - Ha!
