What once took more than an hour and a half and a clumsy schedule of trains and busses is now door to door train service between two of the country’s most important tourist transit points.
As of February 1, 2018, Athens International Airport and the Port of Piraeus have been linked with direct rail service.
Station to station, the journey takes about an hour.
The new service is expected to offer travelers arriving at Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport with the most direct possible option to a ferry boat network to hundreds of island locations throughout the Aegean.
Since you’re here… I have a small favor to ask.
More and more people than ever before are reading The Pappas Post and despite increasing costs to maintain the site and provide you with the quality content that you deserve, I will never “force” you to pay for our website or add a paywall. I believe in the democracy of the internet and want to keep this site and its enriching content free for everyone. But at the same time I’m asking those who frequent the site to chip in and help keep it both high quality— and free. We’ve implemented a “free-will” annual subscription for those who want to support our efforts. I guess it’s fair to call it a philotimo subscription… because you don’t have to do it but it’s really the right thing to do if you love the site and the content we publish. So if you like The Pappas Post and want to help, please consider becoming a “philotimo subscriber”. Click here to subscribe.
