Piraeus Thira Ferry reviews

  • "Great Ferry Trip"

    Booked online and collected tickets from Blue Star office in the Port at Pireaus. Staff handled the hordes descending on the ship efficiently and we left suitcases on the first level in a luggage room. The Delos left Pireaus and arrived at Santorini on time. There was a good range of food and drinks available on the crossing. WiFi is available at 3 euro for 3 hrs but be quick as only limited number of people can be online. To arrive at the Islands in daylight is quite special and we would not do it any other way.

  • "very good"

    Everything worked accurately ... departure time on time, efficiency of the crew, no problem with luggage ... I recommend these ferries. They are not as large and therefore quieter ...

Piraeus 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 area, with the centre of Athens located some 12 km from the port. The centre of Piraeus is generally congested with traffic and tends not to be place where tourists would go. The area has many of the facilities you would expect of a non-tourist town: banks, public buildings, pedestrian areas, shopping streets and the like. The area around Zea Marina and Mikrolimano Harbour are perhaps the most attractive part of Piraeus and have a good selection of restaurants, cafes and bars.

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. Having recently undergone a refurbishment, facilities at the port have improved and include ATM's, bureau de change, restaurants, cafes, bars and a number of travel agencies selling ferry tickets. destinations served by the port include the island of Crete, the Cyclades Islands, the Dodecanese Islands, the eastern parts of Greece and parts of the northern and eastern Aegean Sea.

Thira (Santorini) Guide

The Greek island of Santorini is one of the Cyclades group of islands that lies in the south Aegean Sea. The has very much been shaped by its volcanic past which has created a rather unusual landscape in places. A popular site on the island is the water filled 'Caldera' crater and is surrounded by a wall of colourful cliffs which are packed full of charming houses. The island is also known for its lovely beaches, its busy port, its archaeological finds and the wonderful sunsets which are best viewed from the village of Oia, on the island's northernmost tip.

The island's beaches are distinctive in that they are mainly made up of dark volcanic sands, which can get very hot during the summer, and therefore a sun lounger or towel are an essential piece of kit. The best beaches tend to be located around the eastern coastline and always popular is the stretch found at Perisa. However, a little to the south is Perivolos Beach which is also lovely as is Red Beach which is close to ancient Akrotiri, where the red cliffs are hard to miss.
