Mikrolimano / Tourkolimano....Tavernas and location

1. Are these places one and the same?

2. I'm staying in Piraeus but want to go to Mikrolimano for dinner. If Tourkolimano is a different place than Mikrolimano, which would offer more options for a taverna dinner?

Thank you.

Hi,

They are indeed both the same place. It is a well known area for fish tavernas and a pleasant area for an evening stroll.

Thanks AjarnAndy. I have read many of your posts and found them to be most helpful. I'll be staying in Piraeus before my cruise. Should I arrange for the hotel to call a taxi to get me to the port? (Party of 4; Mom walks slow) Is there a difference in price between having the hotel call vs. flagging down a taxi?

Hi Skymuffin,

Thanks for the kind words. If you have lots of luggage I would get the hotel receptionist to call a taxi for you even though it will probably cost you a little more. Do bear in mind that some hotels have their own vehicles and provide a transfer to/from the ports.

Enjoy your time in Piraeus.

Another taxi question. Can you refresh my mind about:

1) Is there a flat fee from ATH airport to Piraeus

2) Is there a charge per suitcase?

3) True/False: Since we are arriving in the morning, I'm supposed to check the meter to make sure it shows "1" for day rate? I got this from some older posting - want to make sure it's still valid.

Thanks again. I don't want to get ripped off.

Hi,

I haven't taken a taxi from the airport to Piraeus, only the bus. However, this link may be helpful:

Hi Christine,

It is a good forty minute walk, quite possibly more from where the cruise ships dock to Mikrolimano. Anyway, take a look at this link:

oasa.gr/pdf/…peiraias_2008.pdf

Take an 843 or 859 from the port to the metro station. Cross the road and then take the number 20 trolley bus. Do buy your tickets beforehand which are available at kiosks selling newspapers and cigarettes.

It looks as though the 915 will take you to Kastella.
