Thira Piraeus Ferry reviews

  • "Facilité et confort "

    Bonne traversée et surtout respect de l’horaire. Il faut savoir que nos valises sont laissées dés l’embarquement sans vraiment d’indication et malgré sièges réservés, il y a personnes qui respecte cela mais sans plus car il y a beaucoup de sièges confortables

  • "Pleasant voyage"

    Our voyage from Santorini to Piraeus was smooth. We had a cabin, which was spacious, clean, with hot shower and clean towels and toiletries. We arrived in Piraeus rested and on time. As we were approaching the port of Piraeus, the air conditioning allowed some diesel smell in like airplanes do before they start moving on the ground. The ship was clean and tidy throughout and had plenty of seating space in the lounges. As our voyage started at midnight, most cafes, restaurants and shops were shut and one could only choose from a limited selection of drinks and snacks. It would be nice if the ship had wifi available. Free shuttle bus took us from the point of arrival near to the port exit/metro station.

Piraeus Guide

The Greek city and port of Piraeus is one of the largest ports in the whole of the Mediterranean, and the third largest in the world, and has become a major hub for the ferry network that spans the Aegean Sea. Piraeus is an important city in its own right despite the fact that it is frequently considered to be a suburb of Athens, the Greek capital, which is only a very short distance away. Despite its proximity to Athens, Piraeus' waterfront has its own distinct appearance and visitors will see that the most appealing parts of the city are located around its eastern quarter, alongside both Mikrolimano Harbour and Zea Marina. A popular event in Piraeus is the Ecocinema International Film Festival which is held annually in late February and is where a number of films are screened at the Atticon Cinema and the Cineac Cinema, which are both located in the city's Town Hall Square.

Full of restaurants, bars and nightclubs, the waterfront district was greatly redeveloped in time for the Athens Olympics and as a result a new harbour front promenade was created that is lined with trees and passes the medieval city walls. The walls serve as a reminder and as an insight into the city's rich past.
