City Sightseeing Athens & Beach Riviera Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour

Exploring Athens can mean lots of walking and climbing, which is a stressful endeavor in the Greek sun if you’re short on time. A hop-on hop-off City Sightseeing bus tour lets you cover more ground in less time, without using any extra energy. View the must-sees, learn their history from the onboard commentary, and hop on and off at the stops that interest you. Plus, explore beyond central Athens on the Piraeus route.

One of the best and biggest ports in Greece. Free Bus will take you from your dock to the Metro Station. Old times' beautiful Station building.

We caught the train down to the port to see if the ferries were still running as we where having troubles finding information on the net about it. We wanted to have a look around the area as well. We were in Athens in March 2020 when Covid restrictions were in place. As soon as you get off the train, you don't get a good feeling as its pretty run down and doesn't give you a safe feeling. There wasn't anything open and no ferries going anywhere. There were a lot of ferries parked up and a lot of maintenance taking place. In walking around, there was a lot of homeless people living in the area.

Please be aware of THIEVES that are around the departure points at Pireaus Port, and in particular Gate 8 in my instance. They are all around the port and work in groups. They will try and sell you sunglasses (fake) and can be very rude - and while one is talking to you, and distracting you, another will attempt to steal any items that they can get. Also women walking around with young children also part of the scam. Its one big group. I was sitting down in the seated area opposite Gate 8 - heading to Hydra - and was advised to get there one hour prior to departure. This is NOT necessary. I could have turned up 15 minutes before, and that was plenty of time. Whilst I was sitting down, I got distracted by one of the scammers, and before I knew it, another had come under the seat I was sat on and stole my rucksack that was at my feet between my legs. It had everything in it - passport, wallet, tickets. I reported it to the police at the port, and tracked stolen item with Find My, but before long I could see my Apple device 10 miles away, and before long they had used a credit card. Reported it to the police which took about 2 hours. This is a COMMON occurrence at this port, and I am told also on the subway / trains and busses in Athens and around, so please be aware, and make sure you keep your belongings either on you, or tied to you in some form. Keep your items with you at all times, and keep them tied to you, and also if wearing rucksack have it well locked. If you are coming back from the islands to this port, of from Hydra, I would order the taxi in advance to meet you (which you can do via FerryHopper), rather than deal with waiting taxi's, as this is where some of these thieves hang around. They seem to be migrants - so just be aware to make sure you don't get distracted by one, and then scammed while your attention is on that person, and realise you are suddenly without one of your belongings. Also very common pick pocketing area as well. Be vigilant to avoid any unnecessary and very time consuming complications for further travel such as replacement passports etc.

We took a cab to go to the port to catch the World champion Jet Ferry to Santorini at 7.15 am. Reached here nearly an hour early. The cab dropped us just in front of the ferry, which was very convenient. We waited till 7pm when we were asked to board the ferry. The wait till then was painful. No place to sit, no toilet facility, no cafes open.

This is an extremely busy Port and very important I would imagine to Athens and Greece itself, providing access to and from many of the Greek Islands we were there to meet friends who were travelling overnight on the ferry from Heraklion in Crete. Easy to navigate we took a pre-booked taxi from our nearby hotel from where we could see the hundreds of ferries arriving. The taxi was not only able to enter the port but take us right to the berth where the ship was due to dock and wait with us for an hour (at no extra cost) for our friends to disembark and return with us to our hotel. It was 5:30am when we arrived for the 6am docking but our driver directed us to the nearby café where we were able to purchase hot drinks and snacks while we waited for their arrival. The Port is spacious, it needs to be with so many ferries arriving from all over. Having used a number of Ports around Europe we found this one to be very customer friendly and accessible.
