"Piraeus" Port of Piraeus Tip by iaint
Port of Piraeus, Athens: 12 reviews and 20 photos
Well, it has a reputation. You go there to catch a ferry to an island, but that’s it!
I approached it a different way - literally. I took the metro to Faliro (the stop before Piraeus), and walked along the shore through the chic marina areas of Mikrolimano and Pasalimani, full of top end boats & swish restaurants.
Then over the hill to the port area. It’s like night and day. How to move way downmarket in less than 100m.
I had planned to retrace my steps (watching my back) and have lunch somewhere top end...being 25-12. However, I ended up on Aegina (see other tips).
On the way back from there, getting off the hydrofoil in the dark, it took me a wee while to get to the Piraeus station for the metro. However they have maps at various places. It’s an old station building - doesn’t look like a metro stop - and it’s above ground.
Directions: Between Athens and the sea.
