We had the benefit of leaving and arriving at this port. Whilst it is large the experience of leaving is far better than arriving especially when it comes to either finding a taxi or a bus.
Upon leaving there were large crowds but these were well 'corralled' by the woman police officer there.
Arrival is a different story as there are simply not enough taxis or busses to cater for the large groups that arrive by ferry. Not being as fast as we once were, we were not the first to reach the busses and consequently it was standing room only. I believe that this should not be legal. The driver explained we could wait for the next bus but he could not say how long it would be. Consequently we stood for about 20 minutes. Next time we will be arranging a private transfer as it was also evident that there were also an unsightly rush for the available taxis.
If I could give a score for the port as an arrival port I would score it a 2 but as a departure port I would give it 4 stars out of 5.
I traveled from Piraeus to Mykonos with Blue Star Ferries the ferry was on time and we had a very good trip the only thing I didn't like and because of that is one star less was that inside the ferry was very cold
