Piraeus Cruise Port

A hugely important historical port in Greece, Piraeus is also one of the largest in the Mediterranean. A full-on city, Piraeus is a great place to go exploring, with traditional European town centers, parks, lovely churches and houses. The tree-lined streets and gorgeous harbor alone warrant strolling rights. The port is one of the chief ways to get to destinations in the Aegean Islands and earshot locations in the Mediterranean.

How to Get to Piraeus

As a modern city, Athens has modern accommodations. To get to Piraeus, quite simply hope on the metro, which by line one gets you to pretty much right to the Saronic Gulf Ferries. One in, a number of buses will escort you around the perimeters of the harder to reach locations in the spanning area, in fact, it is recommended that you plan your trip around the area with plenty of spare time, as it can take the better part of an hour to go from one location to another. Private transfers can also be arranged for more flexibility.

One Day in Piraeus

Unlike many ports, Piraeus is sizable enough to merit taking some time to explore. A great place worth looking into is the Archaeological Museum of Piraeus. Complete with terrific bronzed statues of Athena and Apollo, and containing several irreplaceable pieces of art from Greek antiquity, the collection at the museum is substantial. Otherwise, enjoy a coffee in one of Piraeus’ many cafes, located just along the harbor.

Then of course, there is Athens. With tours available to whisk you away straight from the port to some of the world’s greatest marvels - the Tower of Winds, Old Palace, the Greek and Roman Agora, the Olympic stadium, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, or the Temple of Zeus - make your day in one of the world's greatest cities one you'll never forget.

Port Information

The port itself possesses Europe's largest passenger port, handling about 20 million a year. With tons of different kinds of locations, ships and guests of all nationalities, booking a cruise could never be easier. With multi-language booking procedures, the port allows you to get on a cruise going to just about any of the major Greek islands. The biggest problem you will encounter is choosing which one.
