I prefere the X96 express bus. With metro you have to change line under-way, and it costs more. Runs all day and night, more infrequent during the night. If you are sailing from Pireus with a ferry in the morning, it is better to wait at the airport than in Pireus.

Hi ,we have somewhere to stay in either Piraeus or near Athens but need to know how often the trains or if they stop at a particular time.

Thankyou, we will be landing hopefully 8.30 pm and getting what ever line it is to either Piraeus or stopping perhaps at a hostel as we did last year near the Acropolis. Bit reluctant to try the bus but what ever is going to be more reliable is best, thanks for any info.

Why are you reluctant to use the bus? If you are going to Piraeus from the airport it is far more convenient. It's an airport service, so there's plenty of space for luggage. With the metro, you need to change.

Does the train run straight through to Piraeus or do you have to get off and change? We want the easiest way as we will have been travelling for long enough by the time we land so the more direct route the better.

Hi,

As suggested, the easiest/most direct way is the X96 bus. It is a special airport service with assigned space for luggage.

Use the bus. Easier and get off at the terminus. Are you catching a ferry? Busses run every 20 mins or 40mins thru the night.

We will be staying in Piraeus over night to get the ferry the next day, so will have to find somewhere to stay as well.
