Overview Of The Port Of Athens

About Athens
Athens is the capital of Greece. The Aegean Sea lies to the east of mainland Greece, the Ionian Sea to the west, and the Mediterranean Sea to the south.

Athens is a city of neighbourhoods more or less centred around the Acropolis and the Parthenon.

Check out the Acropolis, Agora Market, the National Archaeological Museum and Ermou Street, full of Greek and European shops.

Another part of Athens is Plaka, with its winding and narrow streets which are lined with houses and shops that date back to the 5th century BC.

In Kolonaki, there is the Byzantine and Christian Museum, the Benaki Museum and the Museum of Cycladic Art.

Lykavetos offers the finest panoramic views in Athens including the surrounding mountains and the islands of Salamis and Aegina. You can walk the path to the summit from the top of Loukianou or take the funicular from the top of Ploutarhou.

Other places to visit include Corinth (55 miles from Athens), Sounion (45 miles from Athens), which is home to Temple of Poseidon and Hydra, a picturesque island accessible via hydrofoil.

Astir Beach is about 40 minutes from Athens.

Designer olive oil, locally made organic honey and Ouzo, the liquorice-flavoured liquor are all popular buys.

Mez├ęs is a collective name for a variety of small dishes, typically served with wines or ouzo.

Other dishes include souvlaki, moussaka, seafood such as octopus, squid, red snapper, or lobster and baklava (syrup cake).
Cruise Terminal
Cruise ships dock in the Port of Piraeus, which is in the centre of town. There are many shops and tavernas around the harbour area and the Archaeological Museum of Piraeus is located nearby.

Athens itself can be accessed via taxi to the station, then taking the Metro. Buses are also available at the port.

Note: be vigilant when dealing with taxi drivers. Prices and a helpline number are posted inside taxis. Any problems, call this number or 171 for the tourist police, who can assist you. Taxi drivers also sometimes state prices are per person when in fact, it's per taxi.
