Getting to and from the port

taxi

By Taxi

The taxi will take you exactly at the Gate of your boat and where you should be. Timewise and moneywise, taking the taxi might not be your first choice. The ride is about 9 km from the center of Athens but due to traffic, you can never be too sure about how long the ride will take. An estimation of the cost on a low traffic day, would be around 15 euros.
bus

By Bus

The bus is another way to get to the port. Since Piraeus is a very busy area, public buses lead you easily there from Syntagma square (main square of Athens). There are specific buses that run 24/7 and regardless of the route, the ticket costs 1,40 euros and is valid for 90 minutes. Buses like Nr. 049 from Omonia square or Nr. 040 from Syntagma square, will take you to the port of Piraeus.
metro

By Metro

The metro (underground) station of Piraeus is located across Gate E7 of the port and it's certainly the cheapest and faster way to get there. Hop on the green line (line 1) from Monastiraki square and in approximately 30 minutes you will arrive at Piraeus station. Keep in mind though that it all depends if you have to change lines. The metro ticket costs 1,40 euros and is valid for 90 minutes.

I've been coming to the Greek islands for years now and whilst on my initial travels I didn't enjoy travelling by ferry, now I quite enjoy the whole experience truth be told.
There are many gates and the distance from gate to gate can be on the large side.
If you're staying in a hotel before your journey it's advisable to choose one close to your actual gate rather than the Piraeus area as a whole unless you know the area quite well.
An internal bus service at the port which does a circle from gate to gate. There is no number or sign on the bus but it is the only bus within the port area.

Arriving by train from the airport we had about an hour before our ferry left. There were no signs so we just followed everyone else. After crossing a busy road (apparently there used to be a bridge but now it's shut) you arrive in the port area. There are hawkers everywhere and I didn't feel particularly safe.
Once in the port you have to then find your ferry. Ferries can be spread quite a way apart. Luckily we spotted a port police woman who told us to take the free bus. The driver read out the gates. If he hadn't I would have no idea.
Getting on was easy and straightforward because cars and lorries were still waiting.
