Piraeus to Aegina Ferry Guide
Piraeus Ferry 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 sprawl. 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.
As the Piraeus port is situated only 14km southwest of Athens city centre and 35km from Athens International Airport, you can easily get there via car or public transport. Simply follow Line 1 (Green Line) for approximately 30 minutes until you arrive at Monastiraki station. There is also the 040-bus available from Syntagma Square, which will take you within walking distance of the passenger terminals. Please head in the direction of gates E1 to E10 upon arrival in order to locate your ferry.
Passengers arriving at Piraeus ferry port can expect to find a huge range of facilities including cafes, restaurants, duty free shops, ATMs, currency exchange offices and lounges. There is also the X96 bus which transports passengers between gates E1 to E9 throughout the day as well as taxi ranks.

Aegina Ferry Guide
Forming part of the Saronic Islands in Greece, Aegina is the largest island in the Saronic Gulf and is located around 17 miles from Athens. With a host of scenic beaches encompassing the island from Agia Marina to Souvala, Aegina is a perfect holiday destination throughout the year.
Aegina ferry port is located on the northwest coast of the island, only a short distance from the town centre. The easiest way of getting to the port of Aegina is by car. Simply follow the Kapodistriou road from the south or the Afeas road if you are coming from the east. The port has a wide range of facilities nearby including supermarkets, pharmacies, cafes, bars, restaurants, car rental agencies and waiting lounges.
Please keep in mind that the port car park can get very busy during the high season so we therefore recommend looking elsewhere to guarantee yourself a space.
