Mykonos Piraeus Ferry reviews

  • "I used Sea Jet and Blue Star Ferries - Amazing Amazing and Amazing!"

    Reading reviews on these ferries I was very worried about our experience. But it was in fact a 360 turn for me. It was so good. First of all in Europe you have to worry about your luggage because all companies love to charge for it, left right and centre, it’s ridiculous. But these ferries do not, so if your traveling within Europe or its mostly in Greece that you need this mode of transportation I would highly recommend it. Even if your paying slightly more than a flight and even if it’s longer, choose this options. Flights are too much work verses taking ferries. The only concern is the fact that the arrival for them is always late, 30 to hour wait at one time. But still I would say ferries are the best transportation between islands in Greece. Also these ports for ferries are located much closer the airports to destinations.

  • "Well worth it!"

    My wife and I traveled on the Champion Jet 1 high speed ferry from Mykonos to Piraeus (Athens) on Tuesday 27 June. We loved the experience! We paid the little extra to buy Platinum Class tickets but the space and service were worth it. I was especially impressed by the help of their 'Reception' person - they have a dedicated staff member looking after all passenger requests. Well done SeaJets, I'll be traveling with you again.

Mykonos Guide

Forming one of the Cyclades group of islands, the island of Mykonos lies between the islands of Tinos, Paros and Naxos. The main town on the island, also called Mykonos (or Chora to the locals), has typically Cycladic architecture on display with its white washed houses with painted blue windows, pretty narrow streets and pebble-stoned pavements and small white chapels with sky blue cupolas. Many visitors choose to simply take a stroll through Chora, the old port, Little Venice and the Castle to take in the charm of the town. The island in general has a lively nightlife and is sometimes referred to as the "Ibiza of Greece" as a result of its summer club scene which is a major draw for thousands of tourists each year.

The island has two ports. The old Mykonos harbour is where passenger ferries arrive and the New Port of Tourlos is where mostly cruise ships dock. Ferry services from Mykonos depart to Piraeus and Rafina on the Greek mainland and to the other islands in the Cyclades, the Dodecanese islands and to Crete. Conventional and high speed ferries operate to and from the island.

Piraeus Guide

The Greek city and port of Piraeus is one of the largest ports in the whole of the Mediterranean, and the third largest in the world, and has become a major hub for the ferry network that spans the Aegean Sea. Piraeus is an important city in its own right despite the fact that it is frequently considered to be a suburb of Athens, the Greek capital, which is only a very short distance away. Despite its proximity to Athens, Piraeus' waterfront has its own distinct appearance and visitors will see that the most appealing parts of the city are located around its eastern quarter, alongside both Mikrolimano Harbour and Zea Marina. A popular event in Piraeus is the Ecocinema International Film Festival which is held annually in late February and is where a number of films are screened at the Atticon Cinema and the Cineac Cinema, which are both located in the city's Town Hall Square.

Full of restaurants, bars and nightclubs, the waterfront district was greatly redeveloped in time for the Athens Olympics and as a result a new harbour front promenade was created that is lined with trees and passes the medieval city walls. The walls serve as a reminder and as an insight into the city's rich past.
