    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.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Piraeus Central Port

    This is the largest, busiest and most important port in Greece. It is the gate to Argo-Saronic islands, Peloponnese east coasts, Northeast Aegean islands, Dodecanese, Cyclades, and Crete. The Southeast side of the port docks the International ferries and Cruise ships next to the Passengers Terminal and the Customhouse. Each of the many competing shipping companies has agents at the quayside, where you can not only buy your tickets but get useful information about accommodation in Aegean islands as well.

    by Avieira67 Updated Oct 24, 2006
    Going to Syros

    Port of Piraeus is connected to central Athens by underground service.
