Piraeus Guide

Since antiquity Piraeus has been the chief port of Athens. In the city’s bustling three harbours you will find cruise ships, seafood stands, hydrofoils and lots of people. Nowadays, thousands pass thorugh en-route to the islands, but if you have a few hour’s to kill there are several attractions worth seeking out.

The three harbours of the city are distinct and each is interesting to see. In the main commercial harbour, Megas Limani, can be found cruise ships and giant tankers. The Zea Marina contains hydrofoils that go the various islands of Greece. And the smallest harbour, known as the Turkish Harbor, primarily serves yachts and contains numerous seafood restaurants.

The Maritime Museum or Akti Themsitokleous, located in the Zea Marina, contains model ships from the dawn of maritime activity to the present day. Or if you are tired of all of the maritime attractions, the Archaeological Museum has several artifacts of interest including three magnificent bronze statues depicting Apollo, Athena and Artemis.

Many travelers find themselves in Piraeus only very briefly as they wait for a ferry. If you are here for several hours or overnight the city offers decent hotels and restaurants. If you feel adventurous, there is an enormous open-air flee market to explore, or if you prefer, the Kastella Theatre offers nightly summertime open-air performances.

The Athens metro serves Piraeus, and thus this city and all it has to offer is very nearby.

The easiest way to get to Piraeus is via the Athens metro which travels south from the central Omonia square and other stops. Athens International airport has flights to and from many cities all over the world. Another way to arrive in Piraeus is from the many hydrofoils that come and go to the many islands of Greece.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
