Athens (Piraeus) Donoussa Ferry reviews

  • "Oops! You left us all behind in Paros!!"

    We queued in the correct ‘pens’ in Paros, our ferry arrived….but no-one opened our gates 3&4 where we were waiting, and the ferry left without us. Luckily for us, there was another of your ferries 1/2 hr later, and we all got on that! It was traumatic to see our ferry depart without us.

    Pour un prix plus que raisonnable dans la section économique, et si vous arrivez tôt, vous aurez un siège très confortable à l'intérieur du bateau. Et le café du comptoir restaurant est délicieux !

Athens (Piraeus) Guide

The port city of Piraeus in Greece lies on the Saronic Gulf in the Attica region of the country and forms part of the Athens urban area, with the centre of Athens located some 12 km from the port. The centre of Piraeus is generally congested with traffic and tends not to be place where tourists would go. The area has many of the facilities you would expect of a non-tourist town: banks, public buildings, pedestrian areas, shopping streets and the like. The area around Zea Marina and Mikrolimano Harbour are perhaps the most attractive part of Piraeus and have a good selection of restaurants, cafes and bars.

Piraeus is Greece's main port and the largest in Europe and the third largest in the world. Unsurprisingly, it is the hub of Greece's maritime industries and the base for its merchant navy. Having recently undergone a refurbishment, facilities at the port have improved and include ATM's, bureau de change, restaurants, cafes, bars and a number of travel agencies selling ferry tickets. destinations served by the port include the island of Crete, the Cyclades Islands, the Dodecanese Islands, the eastern parts of Greece and parts of the northern and eastern Aegean Sea.

Donoussa Guide

The Greek island of Donoussa is the most northerly of the Small Eastern Cyclades group of islands and lies to the east of the island of Naxos and north of Amorgos. The island is quite small with a land area of around 13 sq. km and has a number of coves and hidden sandy beaches just waiting for visitors to explore. The island's residents, which amount to about 100, live mainly in the villages of Donoussa, Stavros, which is the largest and home to the island's port, Mersini, Haravgi and Kalotaritissa. A popular attraction on the island are the caves of "Spilia Tichou" with its spectacular stalactite formations, in the north west of the island, and "Fokospilia" on the island's east coast. According to mythology, Dionysus offered Ariadni a hiding place in Donoússa so that Thesseus could not find her. A settlement dating to the Geometric Period as well as remains of Bronze Age dwellings reveal the historical importance of the island.

Donoussa is connected by ferry to the port of Piraeus and to Naxos and Amorgos.
