Piraeus Sifnos Ferry reviews

  • "Perfect journey"

    Pireaus to Sifnos journey was perfect. Left on time, arrived on time. Ship is comfortable and well appointed. The only downside is being required to check-in 2 hours before departure. For a 7.00 departure that means getting to the ship for 5.00. It means getting up and travelling from your accommodation at 4.00. It is not necessary, many passengers were boarding just minutes before departure. If Zante introduced electronic tickets all advanced arrival and delay could be reduced.

  • "Very good experience"

    We booked Aegean Seedlines Speedrunner 3 to Sifnos. I will book this vessel again as it is possible to go outside (although please stop putting the pets in carriers on the top deck where they are is boiling sun. They should be inside somewhere in the shade - please!) and this you cannot do on many other vessels. It was fairly prompt on both journeys, only 10 mins late in to Sifnos on the outward journey otherwise bang on. The return journey was a little rough but the ship was quite stable. Good facilities on board, would definitely use again. I would ike the facility though to choose a seat number in future with online booking as we were given seats facing backwards on the return journey which we didn't like. We were able to move as there were plenty of empty seats in June but it might be full in high season. Helpful staff - all speaking english.

  • "Piraeus - Sifnos with Speedrunner 3"

    Good service. Checked in online, printed the tickets and boarded. Nice ferry, friendly staff. Left on time and arrived on time. Would have been nice to have gate information on the tickets, otherwise nothing to add.

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.

Sifnos Guide

The Greek island of Sifnos is located in the western end of the Cyclades group of islands and is typical of the islands of the Cyclades with its traditional architecture, lovely calm beaches, pretty tavernas and hills. The island's south coast is where most of its popular beaches are located and many have soft sand, crystal clear water and good facilities. A popular attraction on the island is the lovely Monastery of Chrissopighi which is the island's protector. The most picturesque village on the island is Kastro, which is surrounded on three sides by views of the Aegean Sea, and is characterised by narrow streets, stone built houses and beautiful views of the sea. The village can trace its history back 4,000 years with evidence of its past visible in many places and includes part of its defensive wall which was built in around 800 BC.

The island's port is located in the town of Kamares. During the summer months there are daily services of both high speed and conventional ferries to the island. Ferries connect Sifnos with Piraeus and to the other Cycladic islands such as Serifos, Folegandros, Kythnos, Milos, Ios, Santorini and Crete.
