To go to Pireaus, you can take the X96
bus which departs every 20-40min from the airport. Allow about 60-90
minutes for the trip to the port. The bus ticket currently costs €3.20.
This used to be 2.90 and was also valid as a 24hour day-pass for any
form of transport in Athens. Unfortunately that is not the case
You can also take a Taxi to go to the
Port of Piraeus. This should cost about €28 (used to be around
15) according to the official body of taxi drivers. If you
take a taxi it is a good idea to let the driver know that your destination
is Naxos, so that he takes www.poloralphlaurenaustralia.biz you in the port area where the ferries to Naxos
are. Note that many Greek taxi drivers usually "service" more people on
a single fair and they collect the same amount of money from all passengers
or passenger-groups. This is not legal, but you will see it is being
accepted by many.
Once you reach the port, there are a
lot of travel agencies from where you can buy your ticket. Bare
in mind that there are more or less 3 types of ferries that can take you
- The first one is a normal ferry (cheapest
but also slowest option). In this case the trip takes about 6-7 hours
and the ticket costs about €25.
- The second case is the so-called Blue-Star
ferries (relatively fast and not too expensive). The trip in this
case should last about 5 hours and the ticket should cost about €30.
- And the final, fastest and most expensive
option is the so-called High-Speed ferries. With a High-Speed ferry
it should only take you about 3.5 hours to get to Naxos, and the ticket
should cost about €45.
