We had a very early start for the ferry at 07.25 from Piraeus, but even though we arrived at the port an hour ahead of that time we were allowed onto the ship straight away, which meant we got really good seats inside the economy class cabin. The voyage itself was uneventful except for the high winds at Naxos which necessitated interrupting the disembarkation of passengers as the ramp started to drag sideways across the end of the quay. The crew were very quick and highly professional in their response to the situation and everyone got off safely at the second attempt. The facilities on board were good and we had a very pleasant journey.

Piraeus is a port city in Greece. The city is located on the Saronic Gulf in the Attica region of Greece and is part of the Athens urban area with the centre of Athens roughly 12 km from Piraeus. Central Piraeus is not a place where visitors choose to linger because it is congested with traffic. Beyond its shipping offices, banks and public buildings, you will find a jumble of pedestrian precincts, shopping strips and rather run down areas. The most attractive quarter lies to the east around Zea Marina and touristy Mikrolimano harbour, which is lined with cafes, restaurants and bars.
The port of Piraeus is the main port in Greece, the largest passenger port in Europe and the third largest in the world and is the centre of Greece’s maritime trade and the base for its large merchant navy. The facilities at the port have been recently refurbished and the quality of the amenities improved significantly. These include ATM machines, currency exchange service, restaurants, bars, taxis and a wide range of travel agencies selling ferry crossing tickets. The port operates ferry crossings to Crete, the Cyclades, the Dodecanese, the eastern part of Greece and a large part of the northern and eastern Aegean.
The Greek island of Naxos is located in the Aegean Sea and is part of the Cyclades group of islands. It is an island of culture, with many elements of classical Greece being clearly present. Over the years, the appearance of Naxos has also be strongly influenced by its Byzantium, Frankish and Venetian pasts, all of which have left something quite unique and different. Naxos has especially fertile soil and produces enormous crops of both olives and grapes, and its very own Naxian wine has become something of a speciality of the island. With charming mountain villages, superb beaches and endless Greek sunshine, it is easy to see why the island has become so popular.
There is much more to Naxos than its beaches and coastline, with a range of natural attractions to be found around Hora's historical centre, such as its Venetian Castle, and within the Tragaea region and its countless charming villages. Filoti is the biggest of all the villages within Tragaea and stands alongside Mount Zeus. Another notable mountain village on Naxos is Apiranthos, next to Mount Fanari, where simple Greek architecture and a trio of museums await. Hiking is a popular pastime in the mountains, with a number of recommended trails available, suiting all abilities.
The island's port is also located in Chora. From the port ferries depart to Piraeus (Athens) and to the other islands in the Cyclades.
