1. Re: Airport to Pireaus

There are three ways to get from the Athens Eleftherios Venizelos Intenational Airport to the port of Pireaus:

1. By bus: Express bus X96 leaves every 20 minutes during the day and every 40 minutes at night from the airports arrivals level between doors 4 and 5) to Karaiskaki Square in Piraeus, right outside the ferry harbor. A ticket costs 3.20 Euro. The trip takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes to one hour and a half.

2. By metro: The metrowill take you from the airport to the end of the line which is Monastiraki metro station. There you change to line 1 (green line). The end of line one is the metro station of Piraeus just outside the entrance to the ferry harbor. Tickets are 6 € single fare,

10 € for 2 people and 15 € for three. The journey time from Athens International Airport to the harbor of Piraeus is about one hour. Trains are every half hour (:00 and :30) with the first one leaving the airport at 05:30 and the last one at 23:30.

3. By taxi: This is the more expensive way to get to the harbor of Piraeus because the trip will cost you about 50 € and, depending on traffic, it can take longer than the metro to get there. If, however, you decide to take a taxi, make sure your inform yourself how do deal with taxis in Athens.
