From central athens to cruise ship and reverse

I understand that the Pireas metro stop is the location of the ferries. Are the cruise ships there as well??

How do I get from the cruise port (Megas Limoni) to the Acropolis stop?? No taxis please!!

    MEGALO LIMANI (great harbour), not megas limoni (which sounds more like big lemon to me)!
    Cruise ship terminals A and B are a couple of miles from the Piraeus metro stop, and it would take you 20-25 minutes to walk it. You need to find out exactly where your ship will be and whether they are operating a free shuttle from the railway station (15 minutes from cruise terminals), otherwise there are local buses from the cruise terminal to both railway and metro station.
    See VT Forum temporarily unavailable
    Map on here doesn't show the cruise terminal but it's right at the bottom cretetravel.com/Athens/Athen...

    See the website europeportreviews.com/Athens..., I think it will answer your question very well. I just stumbled on this site tonight in the course of trying to find out how to get from the cruise ship dock in Piraeus to Athens without having to pay a huge sum for a taxi.

    Also see the website travelinfo.gr/athens/transpo..., which has some good info. about the public trans. system in Athens.

    Have a great trip!
