Piraeus is a port city located a short trip out of Athens, making it a popular launchpad for the coveted Greek Islands. Many tourists pass through the city every year as they board a ferry to the island of their choosing. While many travelers might only transit through the destination on the way to more luxurious adventures, Piraeus is extremely popular among the locals who flock to the city to enjoy the sun and sea. It is known for its buzzing waterfront which boasts a whole range of hip restaurants, as well as some quieter neighborhoods that make the perfect spot for late-night catch-ups and dancing into the night.
Piraeus may be defined by its harbor but the city is so much more than that. It’s home to boutique stores and trendy cafes, stunning scenery and colorful houses, and a rich history that is evident in the various museums located around town. Travelers that choose to explore the city rather than simply pass through will not be disappointed by the rich culture, interesting architecture and exceptional food.
As a popular port city, most travelers are only familiar with the harbor. Tourists tend to know the name ‘Piraeus’ simply because of the ferries that transport hordes of people to the Greek Islands every day, not because of the city itself or anything it has to offer. If you have space in your itinerary, we strongly recommend you do some exploring in Piraeus. Even a few hours will give you a fulfilling introduction to this charming Greek city.
Consider adding some of these things to your Piraeus bucket list:
Wander the Piraeus Harbor to enjoy the boats and scenery
Learn about Piraeus’ history at the Archaeological Museum of Piraeus
Immerse yourself in Greek culture at Stavros Niarchos Foundational Culture
Release your inner child at Allou! Fun Park
Be transported to a different time at the Hellenic Maritime Museum
Stretch your legs at Stavros Niarchos Park
Be mesmerized by the stars at Eugenides Foundation
Indulge in some people watching at Themistokleous Square
Admire the architecture of St Nicholas Church of Piraeus
Piraeus is a super popular destination due to the Greek Islands ferries so you’ll have no problem finding a way there from Athens. Once you’re in Piraeus, there are also a number of transport options to get you where you need to go:
Shuttle bus (various companies)
Most people headed to Piraeus will be making the onward journey to the Greek Islands, but if you can spare a day you’ll be able to get an insightful glimpse into the city. Rather than check-in to a hotel since you’ll be headed off on a ferry anyway, utilize Bounce luggage storage so that you can explore without the hassle of your bags. Bounce offers flexible storage for your luggage so that you don’t have to cart it around with you on your adventures. You can spend the day experiencing the best Piraeus has to offer, then collect your gear and jump on a ferry. It really is that easy!
While the city of Piraeus shouldn’t be underestimated, we know that most people only head out this way as a part of a greater exploration of the area. If you are building an epic itinerary to explore this part of Greece, we recommend the following attractions and activities:
Greek Islands: Yes, we know this idea isn’t an original one but it would be remiss of us to talk about the broader area without mentioning the Islands. After all, this is the reason most people come to Piraeus at all! Whether you are looking to party on Mykonos, soak up the luxury in Santorini, or get off the beaten track on Milos or Kythira, there truly is something special about the Greek Islands.
Votsalakia Beach: A little farther out from the main hub of Piraeus lies a stunning city beach with all of the facilities you need for an afternoon in the sun. It’s got a beach bar, various cafes and restaurants, and a whole selection of sun loungers to choose from.
Explore Zea Marina: While most people hang out at the waterfront at Piraeus Port or Mikrolimano, Zea Marina is a picturesque spot that doesn’t get the same attention. Head here for gelato, a meal at a modern restaurant, or to have a casual beer with area residents.

This was my first time using this service and it worked seamlessly. I had no problems at all dropping my bag off at NYC Racquet Sports and it was just as easy picking it up. This location is a couple blocks from Penn Station, so it was perfect for exploring Manhattan for several hours before catching the train to Newark Airport for a late night flight. Will definitely use this service on future trips!
Really excellent service, right around the corner from A/C/E trains at Penn Station in New York. Popular and busy restaurant, too — but no one kept me waiting to drop off or pick up a bag.
This place is awesome, it’s near Macy’s and other souvenir shops, nearby food outlets too and near the Penn station in New York. This is the best place to leave your luggage for last minute shopping before you head to the airport via Penn station. Plus the Employees are very courteous and kind
