Piraeus Mini Guide

What can you tell me about Piraeus?
Piraeus is best known for the massive port that forms the core of the city and which developed from its beginnings in Ancient Greece. It was at its height of its importance for nearly a thousand years from the 5th century BC but then afterwards entered a state of decline which would last until the 18th century. Today it is important for delivering tens of millions of people to their holiday destinations on the Greek islands as well as supplying Greece with goods from abroad.

How do I get to Piraeus?
The only way by air is to fly to Athens International Airport and take an airport bus or the metro to Piraeus port. The buses go directly between Athens and Piraeus and operate 24 hours a day, whilst the metro stop for the port is at Monastiraki. easyJet fly there from several UK destinations and the airport is served by many low cost airlines from around Europe.

What should I do in Piraeus?
You could spend an eternity just marvelling at the bustle of humanity around the port including the weathered Greek sailors idling the time away until their next sailing. Alternatively you could travel into Athens and see such marvels as the Acropolis and the Parthenon. Others take a look at the archaeology of Piraeus itself which has stood for nearly three millennia. There are a number of good beaches not far from the port if you want to escape the hustle and bustle, use your Piraeus hire car to get you there.
