Χ96 Piraeus - Athens Airport Express  (The bus runs 24 hours, every 20 or 30 minutes.)

Where to buy: From the bus driver, all metro stations and public transport ticket outlets.


The X96 Airpost Expressbus leaves directly outside the arrivals area of the airport (between doors 4 and 5). Take this bus nearly to the end of the line, at Piraeus harbour (bus stop name: Karaiskaki Square).

Then it is a short walk (towards the water) to find a large iron gate where you enter the harbour area. Look for a Hellenic Seaways ticket booth and ask them where to find your boat.
