Arriving Piraeus @ 0700 Holland America Zuiderdam Wed 4/30/08 then departing @ 1700.
Request info on trains to Plaka shopping.
Also ferry info to local islands in time to return to ship by 1600.
We've found, in the past, that local ferries to near-by islands are fun and interesting.
Thanks for your help.
The metro runs frequently from Piraeus to Syntagma Square, changing at Monastiraki. Journey takes 19 minutes. Check out the website for the Athens metro for all info.
Thanks Maria, very helpful information!
Thanks [VT member 6f818], I'll check out the Athens metro website.
